Question about Creda Ovens

1 Answer

My Creda Reflection double oven keeps tripping the oven fuse when I turn it on? It doesn't trip straight away, it works for a minute or so and then trips the fuse. Any ideas?

The cooker is at least 12 years old, it was here when we moved in, and it has already had the heating element in the main oven replaced. Is it worth looking at repairing it or should I just replace it?

Call an electrician to check the circuit insulation for shorts
could be vermin cooked across electrical terminals , failing insulation, grease /fat across terminals
dead shorts trip the breaker immediately, ground leakage problems take a little longer

    Many thanks for replying. It doesn't trip straight away. I just tried it again and it tripped after eight minutes. What would cause the delay in tripping?

  • Bill Boyd May 07, 2017

    still call the electrician
    taking so long to trip indicates that there is excessive current draw through the breaker up near the max current allowed before it trips
    for example if it is a 10 amp circuit breaker , current at 8.5, 9,9.5 amps will trip the breaker as those figures is within the permissible current to operate the breaker even though it is below the 10 amp rating
    that problem could be in current leakage through insulation , the breaker is weak or the breaker is not of sufficient amperage to handle the current load example instead of the fitted 10 amp , it might have to be 15 amp
    again the electrician will be able to advise of the reason

    A friend has suggest it could be faulty thermostat that is deliberately shorting out as a safety precaution.

SOURCE: Oven tripping

Hello,
Was the oven tripping the the fuse before the element was replaced,also did you take the oven out to do element because the element can be done with cooker in place it may be that you pulled out the connections block at rear of unit and it is touching body.If tripping before replacement the fault could be any where on the oven.You will have to check it through.

The main oven doesn't heat but the main oven grill function does heat up! I'm not sure if this means the element is no longer working or if it is a problem with the control switch?


Make sure the power is off, then there should be two screws holding the element to the back wall remove them. Pull the element out until you can get to the wires, sometimes a wire will burn off at the connector, if that's the case replace it with a high temp connector if not disconnect both wires and do a continuity check on the element

Beko DVC5622X bottom oven wont heat up


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. If this helped you why not get me a beer?
