Question about Whirlpool Ovens

Open Question

Whoolpool AKG668/AV main oven continuoulsly trips off when initially switched on and the display flashes with zeros and a small letter 'A'. Resets after about 3mins then may happen again. Eventually it will remain on and works fine until it's switched off/on then happens again. I have noticed that at least one character in the display seems dimlyilluminated but in normal operation it's fine.

I fixed my problem by disconnecting the control board, cleaning all the contact points (including the ribbon cable) with alcohol and reconnecting everything as tight as possible.
I did notice that one of the contacts had become very corroded, so I scrubbed this one for a while. Prior to this I had done some selective unplugging and replugging (ribbon cable in particular) to no avail (each of these attempts powered on to beeping and no display).
Not a fancy solution, but it did work!

SOURCE: Smeg oven problem

The pop would usually mean a busted fuse. Turn off the oven, disconnect completely from the power supply and then take it apart. See if you can find any toasted fuse or roasted wires. Also the reason for tripping the mains off is due to the fact that the oven is draining more power than it should. I would recommend a thorough inspection of the oven by an electrician..

SOURCE: Neff U1410 main oven trips the main RCD. Occurs

I have a u1421 with the same problem! I notice the fan doesnt run too well, sometimes it doesnt run at all, needs a prod to get it running. I suspect with no fan, that the element gets far too hot, and then starts to leak to earth, tripping the RCD. I'm gonna try buying a new fan motor - you should ckeck if your fan is running full speed OK.

Cooking a roast in small oven last nite, all electric went, oven tripped it. Now no top oven working or main oven or fan. What has gone wrong?


When the mains fuse keeps tripping as soon as you switch on the oven, there could be a shortage in the oven, or some of the voltage is leaking to the ground. What it is causing it? I would not know. sorry.

When the oven is heating up, a light inside the oven flashes very brightly. Not sure what that means or if it is unsafe.


when the oven is cold open it and ensure the light inside is screwed in fully. It is probably making poor contact when it is cold.
If that does not fix it, ignore it. If the power to the element was shorting it would trip the earthleakage or your main power switch.

Power tripping off at mains when switching oven on


It will probably be the main oven element that has failed.
This is located at the rear of the inner oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

Main (lower oven) will not switch on


You need to access the fan motor and see if you are getting a supply to it, if you are and it is not going, then replace it..
If no supply then I would suspect faulty selector switch or thermostat.
Plsz leave feedback.
