I have a Zanussi ZTE 285 dryer which runs for 30 seconds and stops, the time to run will go to 0.


I'd get a tech in there to fix your door, since that probably messed up the timer internally.

What can cause the Circuit Breaker to trip out when the door of my Zanussi ZYB594X oven is opened and the internal light comes on?


I suppose, the light did not work because the circuit breaker was released.
In this case, try to find a short-circuit in the following circuit : microswitch (door lock) - power board - light bulb.

Fridge light bulb


Not sure how the light socket only has 6V supply? The bulb for this fridge is a pretty standard 15 Watt/230V SES lamp. If you are sure the current lamp is OK I would suggest the door lamp switch has issues. Try pressing and releasing the door switch manually and check that it functions ok without getting stuck or any sluggish movement. This action in itself may fix the problem.

Zanussi oven zbf 360 + bulb blows repeatedly


bulbs blow from incorrect voltage in use or loose ground wires ( arcing out)
if they fail while the oven is on it is because the bulb construction glass is wrong
bulbs used in ovens need a special heated treated glass and are generally only available from the service agent
failing immediately on turning on indicates a bigger problem that the bulb so call in an electrician to test the system

I want to change the light bulb in the oven,.Mod.no.ZDQ695A can you help me.


I will assume that the ZDQ695 bulb replacement procedure is the same as that for the ZDQ695A. The ZDQ695 uses a 25 W appliance light bulb (300 C). Unplug the appliance before starting. Open the oven and remove the racks for space to work. Insert a flat blade screwdriver between the side of the oven and the glass cover above the bulb. With your hand support the cover and pry it away from the wall of the oven until it releases. Push the top of the cover towards the oven wall and use your fingers to pry the bottom of the cover away from the housing. Then remove the cover. Unscrew the old bulb (counterclockwise) and then remove the bulb. Then screw in the new bulb. Replace the glass cover (position the flange so that it is pointing to the back of the oven) by pushing it into the hole to cover the bulb assembly. Replace the shelves and close the oven door before plugging the oven back in.

Zanussi manuals are available here: http://www.zanussi.co.uk/en-gb/Support/Manuals/ . Enter the model number in the search box. Alternatively, the manual for the ZDQ695 is available here: http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/zanussi/zdq_695.html . Click on the Get This Manual button.

I hope this helps.

The oven light stopped working so i replaced it but it still does not work although the oven works, I have tried opening and shutting the door a few times but this does not work either


I would first of all try another bulb, if that does not work, then could be a faulty door switch, or bad contacts in bulb holder.
If you can access it, then disconnect the 2 wires going to the door switch and join them together, this will prove if the door switch is faulty, or if there is some other fault.

When trying to replace my cooker hood lights the new bulbs blow as soon as i put them in. Is there a fuse I could try replacing?


Wouldn't expect a fuse to be the problem with those symptoms.

You need to fish out the old bulbs (that is, the last ones you had that worked for any period of time) and read the ratings off them. You are particularly interested in a number followed by a capital V (so this might be 12V, 120V, 230V or any of a number of others). This is the supply voltage they are are compatible with.

You need to be sure you buy replacements which have the same voltage rating. If your replacements are rated for a lower voltage, they will expire in a blaze of glory the instant you apply power. If they're rated for a higher voltage, they'll glow very dim and yellow.

You have a little more leeway withthe wattage rating (a number followed by a W, eg 15W, 25W). It's safe to go lower (though less bright), and probably OK to go a tiny bit higher but if you go much further than the enclosure is designed for, you risk problems with overheating.

If you're certain you have the right bulbs but the problem hasn't gone away, you'll need to come back with more information. It might help to know: Brand & model of the hood in question, what rating (both V and W) the bulbs are, how long they last, what it looks like when they blow (bright white light, or brilliant blue flash), what it says on the rating plate of the hood, and what part of the world you live in (tells us what the power supply is like).

But my first guess would still be that the new bulbs are the wrong type.

Light bulb in new bottom freezer model


Maybe the little man inside that shuts it off is on vacation. Just kidding! With the door open, look for a little trigger/switch that shuts the light off when you close the door, press it and see if the light goes out. Out of curiosity, what wattage bulb do you have in there that would melt the cover. It should be no larger than 40w, 25w being the best.
