If it is a electric oven, then the chances are it is the oven element that is causing the problem.
What is probably happening is that as the element gets hotter, the insulation resistance is breaking down, and causing the trip to operate
Hope this helps.

Cooking a roast in small oven last nite, all electric went, oven tripped it. Now no top oven working or main oven or fan. What has gone wrong?


When the mains fuse keeps tripping as soon as you switch on the oven, there could be a shortage in the oven, or some of the voltage is leaking to the ground. What it is causing it? I would not know. sorry.

Fuse keeps tripping


tripping a circuit breaker indicates a dead short or insulation failure
not being able to move the main switch indicates that the contacts inside are burnt together
only option is to call an accredited electrician to test the circuits and rectify the fault
tell him to bring spare elements is case on e or both have burnt out

Main oven causes trip switch to trip out when `I turn the dial to switch on. Top oven is fine.


Likely the element is shorted in the main oven. The Calrod elements short usually at the bends and if the breaker doesn't trip they burn a hole in them and arc. You can USUALLY see a different discoloration at teh failure point. Check both upper and lower elements as preheat probably uses both. Use a dental mirror if necessary to see under and over. Use bright light.

Sounds to me to me like a direct short. Hot wire in unit could be touching part of unit. Oven switch if it has one or main board could be shorted. Oven will have to be pulled to check. Slimm possibility weak breaker.

Power tripping off at mains when switching oven on


It will probably be the main oven element that has failed.
This is located at the rear of the inner oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch


Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers

Neff U1421 main oven trips the circuit breaker.


It might be that the breaker is overloaded and it's no longer supporting the load of all the appliances together.If you do not want to change your breaker you can still use your oven by switching off other appliances that is running while you are using the oven

Tricity bendix se211 electric cooker trips all my electrics


The symptoms you describe are a classic example of an oven element heating up, and as it gets hotter, the insulation is breaking down, thereby causing the earth leakage trip to operate.
To confirm this , switch on the oven, and turn all 4 rings on the top to full heat, 2 at a time, let them stay on for at least 10-15 mins, and if it does not trip, then you can be pretty sure it is the oven element(s) that is the problem

It is not likely to be the wall switch, as if it were faulty, i would expect the trip to go right away.
If you want to check further, then turn on the oven again and see if it trips, if it does ,then it is definately the oven element(s) that is the problem.

If it is a fan assisted oven , the element is at the rear of the oven, and possibly one under the base ot the oven. If it is a conventional convection oven, then there is an element at each side of the oven, even if one is faulty, replace both.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
