Question about Baumatic B484SS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven
Hello, Oven trips out the mains RCD when it gets to temperature and thermostat turns off elements (not every time) and can turn thermostat up and down to switch on /off and doesent cause a problem. Suspect top grill/oven element but works fine as grill. If I use bottom oven element only then doesnt seem to occur. Can take 20mins with oven on before it happens. Have checked all connection internally and cant find anything loose. Is there anything other than the element that could cause this? Any suggestions??

SOURCE: Main oven problem
I suspect not the oven element at fault. you only way forward is to actually test the resistance of the element to earth with a megga if you can beg the use of one. be cautious about the result as on occasion, elements are only faulty to earth when hot. another way to test if you are cdarefull, is to connect the element to mains independently of the oven and see if the rcd trips

have you reset the clock after the power outage?
this is necessary before oven will work
suspect you have it on auto in error

Disconnect the element, and run the oven for at least 30 mins,,if it does not blow fuse, then more than likely it is a faulty element.
What I cannot understand is that you say the thermostat light is on after the fues has blown? I would have thought that the light would be not be on, if the fuse has blown.
If after replacing fuse and the stat is in the off position, and the indicator light is on then indeed the stat is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

SOURCE: bottom oven not working
A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.
If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.
A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.
