Siemens oven tripping RCD

Hello,

Have a problem with a Siemens HB90557GB oven. With the main oven on after a period of minutes the RCD on the consumer unit trips suggesting earth leakage.
Have tested the insulation value of line/neutral to earth of oven and though it seems low doesn't appear to be enough to trip the RCD. (aprox. 12Megohms) Is this likely to be the fan heat element?

I have a eurolec double built under oven. When I turn the bottom oven on the rcd at the house consumer unit pops. The top oven works fine...


The elements in ovens consist of an outer earthed metal tube and an inner resistive element that is insulated from the outer tube by what is effectively a compressed ceramic insulating powder. If the element is not used for a while, enough atmospheric moisture, (or from spills, etc), can penetrate the insulation to cause enough earth leakage to trip the RCD. If the RCD is tripping at the correct level, (They can get too sensitive - see this article here:
Diagnosing RCD earth leakage breaker nuisance trips), then the only long term solution is to replace the element, although they can sometimes be dried out by heating them.

Check fan to see that it spins freely. Look for any evidence of rodent nests or damage( chewed wires ) check breakers and wiring to make sure they are properly sized for the oven. Hope this helps.

If you are sure there is 220v going to unit, it most likely is element or click / control. If you have a ohms meter, you can test the element

I have a stoves cooker which was working fine until we upgraded to the seventeeth edition consumer unit and rcds. Now I have a negative earth fault.Rcd trips out, circuit is fine up to the cooker. Any...


The clue will be when the rcd trips out. If everything is switched off on the cooker with the exception of the clock when you power it up and then it trips out, it could be in the wiring to the oven from the control switch and or the wiring in the oven. The only way you are going to find this is to take the oven out of the housing and test the wiring, isolating components until you find the problem.

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.

Oven has stopped working


The main oven element has failed, you need to fit a new element.
If you remove the rear cover in the oven , you will see the element.
Disconnect and replace. Be care ful not to lose the wires behind the aperture.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Main oven problem


I suspect not the oven element at fault. you only way forward is to actually test the resistance of the element to earth with a megga if you can beg the use of one. be cautious about the result as on occasion, elements are only faulty to earth when hot. another way to test if you are cdarefull, is to connect the element to mains independently of the oven and see if the rcd trips
