I'm assuming you are speaking of the line circuit breaker to the stove. If that is the case and there are ** other problems that you k**w of, it is possible that the breaker has gone bad....they do. Get the same brand and rating as you had originally installed. Cut your main feed and open the terminal panel and remove and replace the unit. Restart main feed and set breaker on. If you continue to have issues, check all wiring to your stove...a loose wire or corroded contact point may be a second issue.

We have a smeg a2a range , the main oven trips the consumer unit when we turn it on the small oven still works fine


You have a short, probably a wire came loose and is welded to the frame. I assume hte consumer unit is the braker for the stove in your panel.

I have a eurolec double built under oven. When I turn the bottom oven on the rcd at the house consumer unit pops. The top oven works fine...


The elements in ovens consist of an outer earthed metal tube and an inner resistive element that is insulated from the outer tube by what is effectively a compressed ceramic insulating powder. If the element is not used for a while, enough atmospheric moisture, (or from spills, etc), can penetrate the insulation to cause enough earth leakage to trip the RCD. If the RCD is tripping at the correct level, (They can get too sensitive - see this article here:
Diagnosing RCD earth leakage breaker nuisance trips), then the only long term solution is to replace the element, although they can sometimes be dried out by heating them.

Hob is tripping fuse box


If the hob is tripping the RCB or MCB on the consumer unit, there is a fault, usually in the elements or halogon heaters, you will need a multimeter to define but please ISOLATE FROM MAINS POWER BEFORE OPENING ANY PANEL
Some electrical knowledge would be helpful, check each element seperatly, you may have to carefuly disconect each heater on the hob, unless you know which blows the mcb, check all connectings to see thay are secure, work round the hab reostates, make sure there is no shorts to ground from elements, with temp control down at zero. Check wiring into mains as a loose connection will cause heat and mcb to trip.
If it is wired into the same outlet as an oven disconnect oven in case the other appliance is causing the problem. it is realy a question of eliminating causes one at a time, working round the affending appliance to define what is the cause.
Hope this is helpful

SMEG DUCO4SS double oven electronic timer the bottom (main) oven does not work no light comes on and no heat but the fan does come on i have sitched the power off waited and then reset the clock


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your 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.
  3. 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.

When I was using main oven elecric tripped, when the fuse is push back in and oven isolation switch turned back on the electric is constantly tripping only when cooker isolation is turned on, oven element...


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.

Neff U1410 main oven trips the main RCD. Occurs


I have a u1421 with the same problem! I notice the fan doesnt run too well, sometimes it doesnt run at all, needs a prod to get it running. I suspect with no fan, that the element gets far too hot, and then starts to leak to earth, tripping the RCD. I'm gonna try buying a new fan motor - you should ckeck if your fan is running full speed OK.
