Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My kenwood CKB200 oven tripped my mains circuit. When I put the power back on the Oven did not heat up as well as before. I am assuming that one of the elements has gone. There is less heat at the bottom of the oven. Can you advise a) which element might have gone. b) what to do to replace it. I cannot find an instruction manual or wiring spec on line. Thanks Martin Vindelis

ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE OPENING ANY PANEL ON YOUR APPLIANCE
There are sometimes up to three heating elements in simular types of ovens.
A Visual inspection is required to accertain which is the element not working, remove rear panel, there is odd types that have the element to the side of the fan assisted oven, have a good look when panels removed. The blow element usually has a blow out hole with Black Gray at the point it will feel rough not smooth like the rest of the element case, the second way is a bulge on the surface skin, it should be easy to identify. Part could be obtained through www.whitegoods.co.uk you will need the model and serial numbers. Some models you have to remove the fan or fans if twin, some models have top fan usually no element in the top except grill.
Hope this has been helpful please send me info if more tech is required.

Oven heats up but wont get above 160 degrees


I assume you mean it trips the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker is good, that means the heating coil is bad, and pulling too much electrical current. Sometimes circuit breakers fail, and trip at say 5 amps when rated at 15 amps. Have you electrician switch that breaker with another one and see if there is a difference. If not, it is a bad heating coil.

Cant get my elecric single oven mm55524 to turn back on tried fuse in plug thats ok plz help


You need to check the continuity of the wires from the mains plug to the main heating coil. This means that the switch and the circuit to the heating coils will confirm the short. If the heating element is short then the main line should be removed to confirm the short and so the circuit will not trip.

Electrolux EOB 6632 oven trips main house circuit breaker if used above 180c. Installation electrician has done whole house test, says everything normal, must just be a particularly sensitive ciecuit...


Hi, welcome to FixYa! my name is Shaun. I hope i can help you out with your question. Your main house breaker is tripping over 180C because of the amount of current your oven is drawing. Keep in mind that an oven is capable of pulling up to 1/4 the amount of amperage of your total house current capacity, up to 50 Amps. This is assuming you have a typical 200 Amp main breaker. Add this in with your heating/air-conditioning, up to 30A, if electric, your water heater, 25 A if electric, and whatever lights and appliances you have plugged in and turned on, you can imagine how quickly those amps add up when your oven is on. Your oven breaker won't trip because you're not exceeding 50A on that circuit, however if your total household load is exceeding 200A, your main will trip. Also, breakers lose efficiency over time. Sometimes they can drop current capacity by as much as 25%. So your best bet is to replace your house main and see if that fixes your problem. Hope this helps out. Have a good day!

Beko dvc62 main fan oven stopped working, doesn,t get hot but fan still works, it tripped circuit breaker and hasn,t worked since, peter


This tutorial will show you how to check your Beko element and how to replace your Beko cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
    1.Your Beko oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Beko 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.

Neff U1421 main oven trips the circuit breaker.


It might be that the breaker is overloaded and it's no longer supporting the load of all the appliances together.If you do not want to change your breaker you can still use your oven by switching off other appliances that is running while you are using the oven

My RCCD unit sometimes trips when I turn my main oven on


I'm assuming you are speaking of the line circuit breaker to the stove. If that is the case and there are ** other problems that you k**w of, it is possible that the breaker has gone bad....they do. Get the same brand and rating as you had originally installed. Cut your main feed and open the terminal panel and remove and replace the unit. Restart main feed and set breaker on. If you continue to have issues, check all wiring to your stove...a loose wire or corroded contact point may be a second issue.
