HI, Sounds like your from the UK
If you are referring to a trip switch as being equivalent to an American circuit breaker. (Electrical safety device designed to shut down power to an electrical appliance). Then we are on the same page.
Do the following diagnostic procedure:
1 SHUT DOWN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE OVEN. I.E. THE TRIP SWITCH/CIRCUIT BREAKER.
2 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced. It is probably tripping the switch because it is shorting out somewhere. There is also the possibility that the internal wiring connectors to where the element is mounted into the oven walls is broken off and short circuiting against the oven chassis (walls). That being the case, it may be just a wiring repair in which you install new appropriate electrical contacts and re-connect the element.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Temp control knob loose on old Frigidaire oven


my best guess its A Frigidaire wall oven, circa 1966-1970,

unsafe to use at any time if the temp controller trips the circuit breaker

could be the oven thermostat causing the trip as well

if Frigidaire are still in business

You will need to ask an electrician to fit a /tested used controller or new superseded part temp controller and knob

Smeg FU65-5 Oven temperature & timer & function knob lights not turning on and oven does not heat up but the fan comes on.


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.

Prob your cooling fan...it comes on to keep the appliance at a constant temp and if it doesnt it will trip out. Try turning on ur grill and you should hear the fan come on straight away, if not then you will need to replace it.

Hope that helps.

Intermittent tripping of circuit as oven just reaches temp


Sounds like the oven element is cracked and absorbing moisture when the oven cools down thus causing it to trip. Should buy a new element. there are hundreds of suppliers on the internet.

HI, MY ELECTROLUX SINGLE FAN OVEN EBO5665 DOES NOT HEAT UP TO ANY TEMP. THE OVEN IS ON, FAN ON,AND THE TIMER DIALS ARE SET. DOESNT HEAT UP. IT TRIPPED THE ELECTRIC SWITCH OFF AT THE TIME. ANY SUGGESTIONS!...


You probably have a bad ( or open ) heating element.. With the power removed.. look at the heating element and make sure it is connected properly and if after you check that it looks ok.. plug it in and try again.. if it fails to get hot..its probably bad.. Not sure what you mean when you say ' IT TRIPPED THE ELECTRIC SWITCH OFF AT THE TIME' but if it tripped the switch or circuit breaker .. your heating element may be shorting out to ground.. and would need to be replaced anyway... Hope that helps.

Tripped out


take off the oven knob, behind is a piece of plastic - the reset switch is behind that.
you have to poke a smal screwdriver in and should hear a small click
