Any time a breaker trips in your household panel it is telling you of a serious short cicuit, circuit to ground or over current situation. I would take the appliance out of service immediately, and have it inspected an repaired as required. If it worked fine when the element was replaced, and the problem developed slowly, It is possible that a conductor has been pinched, or a screw connection has come loose. I would also consider the wiring and devices (receptacle and plug, if so equipped) between the panel and the appliance. Again, it is possible that a conductor has been damaged, and or a screw or two have come loose.
Unless you are comfortable and somewhat competant workig with electrical equipment, you may wish to call your engineer back to look at it. You should also know that wiring and materials used in appliance manufacture and repair must be rated for use in very hot applications, not all insulation and plastics will survive. Best of luck, think safety, Rob.

Bosch HBN7052 - main fuse tripping even after replacing the heating element


It appears there is too much current (electricity) being drawn towards the element, seeing once you replaced it, it worked fine for 5 minutes and then tripped again...I believe the problems lies within the wiring going towards the element, or the thermostat that controls the amount of current coming towards the element. Instead of turning off at a desired temperature, its not and continuing to heat up to the point of tripping the fuse. Try replacing the thermostat.

I have a Smeg SE 336SS-5 Electric oven, I have recently had problems with the fan motor not working and the electrics tripping out when the cooker has been on for a while. I have replaced the fan motor...


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.

Hi. when we turn our electric fan oven on it cuts off the electricity, tripping the circuit breaker when it begins to get hot, ie after about 5 mins. Its a belling oven. Any help much appreciated.


It sounds like the oven element is probably causing the problem, it is more thal likely the element is breaking down as it gets hotter.
My advice would be to replace the element, this is located at the rear of the oven compartment, behind a removeable cover.
This should solve your problem.

Tricity bendix se211 electric cooker trips all my electrics


The symptoms you describe are a classic example of an oven element heating up, and as it gets hotter, the insulation is breaking down, thereby causing the earth leakage trip to operate.
To confirm this , switch on the oven, and turn all 4 rings on the top to full heat, 2 at a time, let them stay on for at least 10-15 mins, and if it does not trip, then you can be pretty sure it is the oven element(s) that is the problem

It is not likely to be the wall switch, as if it were faulty, i would expect the trip to go right away.
If you want to check further, then turn on the oven again and see if it trips, if it does ,then it is definately the oven element(s) that is the problem.

If it is a fan assisted oven , the element is at the rear of the oven, and possibly one under the base ot the oven. If it is a conventional convection oven, then there is an element at each side of the oven, even if one is faulty, replace both.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

AEG U7101-4 Top Oven tripping the fuse after a few minutes


It is more than likely the oven element, as it gets
hotter the insulation in the element is breaking down and causing the trip to operate..
Remove the panel at the rear of the oven and you will see the element there, undo the screws and pull the element towards you, carefully, detach the 2 wires and remove the element.
Be careful not to lose the 2 wires behind the oven rear.
Replace with new element.
Cannot give you a part number, you will have to go to aeg web site.
