I have just purchased the above Zanussi model and have been told by the electrician that it looks like it needs female spade connectors to connect the new cable to the terminal box on the rear of the oven.
He says that he is quite reluctant to use these connections as they were not supplied in the box when delivered and he has never had to connect an oven using spade/crimp connection before.
As there is no clear instructions with my appliance, he says that I should contact someone for advice and find out which size/colour spade connectors he should use he will be willing to install it.
I've got the same issue, looking at them it's either the blue or yellow ones you want, the manual states that it should be installed with 2.5mm flex cable if going to a plug and 2.5mm twin and earth cable if your going to an electrical outlet.

If you\'re Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.
