Thought someone may find this helpful. We bought our Zanussi ZCG7690XN just 4 yrs ago. For nearly 2 yrs the main oven control stopped working. Never got round to replacing the timer controls- ~£80 or so. Read through some threads and thankfully found a few helpful. What I found difficult after accessing the control unit was recognising the correct wires to connect so as to isolate(over ride) the timer unit. Finally sorted this and presto it worked. The same process may help those who wish to replace their unit with a new one.
For those who will try, take safety precautions. If the spark generator works, there is likely power to the timer unit (and oven). If not check fuse, confirm mains supply.
The control unit is accessed first by unscrewing top oven front plates to gain enough room. Then with a flat screw or similar tool, take off the two small clock knobs and the two adjacent burner dials. you would then need to undo four little screws two on each of the burner dials. You can now gently extract the controls from below -can be tricky, (may or may not require using a plier to bend a bit of metal). With the unit out, turn it upside down and you would be looking at the rear of the circuit board with a blue wire, two brown wires connected to the relays and a red wire feeding back to the main oven dial(beside the spark generator). A green earthing is attached to the side . Leave this alone. All you need to do is to join the red wire to the nearby second brown(live)wire. I did this using connectors. Any other sensible means should be fine. The blue wiring returns to the light bulb and back with the others to electrics at the back. I took this off the timer as well.

I previously had recurrent problems with the grill spark unit connection- burnt off. Sorted this out by fixing the connection (access from the front top oven, unscrew a small metal protecting plate to reach it).
I do apologise if some find this too lengthy. Any questions are welcomed.

Why does the fan mode on the bottom oven on my zanussi Zou575 not working?


Because in Main Oven Cavity (large) around the convection fan is very powerful ring heating element 2500W (not visible) who works in the Fan mode. Therefore, it is not necessary that all heaters work because it will overheat the oven.

Hi We have a zanussi ZCE 7550 double oven cooker. The bottom oven broke (with a flash and bang), so we replaced the element at the back as it was burnt out. The top grill and hob are still...


Hello starsevern!! Did you get your cooker fixed, what was the problem?
I have a Zanussi ZCE7550, but apart from that I'm in exactly the same predicament as you in the post you made on Sep 18, 2010...
Can anyone help with a suggestion please???

Faulty main oven


If the fan is working in the oven, and it is electrically heated, then it will be a faulty oven element.
This is located at the rear of the oven behind a removeable cover.

Fan in main oven boken


Sounds as if your oven heating element has failed. You need to fit a new one.

Usually you have to get the back off, disconnect the old element, remove the fixxing screws and element, fit new one, reconnect and it should be fixed. Don't forget to switch the power off before starting work.

My oven isn't getting hot


Most likely one of the elements in the lower oven. For this job you will require basic tools and a multimeter to check the individual elements resistance.
This Must be done with the oven isolated from the mains supply Before beginning work.
remove the screws holding the element in place carefully pull a few CM's of cable through the holes in the oven bulkhead and disconnect the element from the supply cables.
With the element out check for short circuit and breakdown from Mains supply to earth. Using the multimeter on resistance setting check between the terminals and the outer casing there should be no connection here at all. any lower than 2M ohms is asking for trouble.
Check the heating elements by probing onto either end of the element and reading the result back as an example a 230V 2500W element should read around 21 Ohms. Elements are not repairable internally.

This tutorial will show you how to check your Zanussi element and how to replace your Zanussi 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 Zanussi manual.
  2. If you're 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.

Oven fan


almost certainly a problem with the fan and motor. try moving fan blade with a small screwdrriver thro the holes in the back panel to see if it is jammed. after that you are faced with removing appliance, remove back panel and check motor continuity
