Oven Not Working and Door Catch Broken

Hi.

The oven stopped working and tripped the fuses at the same time.

Thought problem was electric wire coming in contact with internal foil (there was some charing), but looks like it was the wire going to the grill.

Is it the element (after less than a year's use) or something else, and how do we find out other than calling in a repair man?

We also managed to break one of the little catches that enables you to get the door off.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks

We are in the U.K., by the way

If you turn the oven on and set it to the highest temperature you will see a black coloured cover plate at the rear of the oven with holes in. Located beind this cover is the oven element. THis after a few minutes at most should be glowing red, the fan then circulates the heat so that the oven reaches the required temperature. IF this is not glowing then the element is blown. If your house fuses tripped this is also a fairly good sign that this is the element. Zanussin provide a spare element for £48.50 but take 7 - 10 days there is a man called element man on the web, he provides the same for £24.50 and delivered in a day. I have had two elements go on me in 6 years... hope this helps ....Jack

Hi I Have a AEG KB9810E microwave/oven combo. Its 6 years old. While the microwave was in operation, the circuit tripped and my partner heard a popping sound. Now its not clear of the AEG tripped the...

Normally when no power coming on from the microwave the fuse has blown in the microwave due to a short hi voltage diode con bad located by the capacitor or micro switches located by the door clips. If you have no electrical experience do not temp to fix it yourself due to high voltage stored in the capacitor.

Hi OldTech, Whirlpool Acubake electric oven stopped working after it suddenly displayed a flashing F2EO error message accompanied by a persistent beep. I unplugged and plugged it again. Thought it...

Hi

F2-E0 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Went to switch oven on fan works when you turn the temp knob it trips the trip switch every time help

HI, Sounds like your from the UK
If you are referring to a trip switch as being equivalent to an American circuit breaker. (Electrical safety device designed to shut down power to an electrical appliance). Then we are on the same page.
Do the following diagnostic procedure:
1 SHUT DOWN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE OVEN. I.E. THE TRIP SWITCH/CIRCUIT BREAKER.
2 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced. It is probably tripping the switch because it is shorting out somewhere. There is also the possibility that the internal wiring connectors to where the element is mounted into the oven walls is broken off and short circuiting against the oven chassis (walls). That being the case, it may be just a wiring repair in which you install new appropriate electrical contacts and re-connect the element.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Microwave went dead

Hi

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.


Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Oven wont work but clock still works

First make sure you didn't trip a breaker. You could have power for the electronics on one side of the 220V and that is why the clock still works. Turn off the breaker and then back on even if it looks on. If it does this again you have a sever problem that will require a service call. If the breaker is tripping it could be other than the oven and if so a new one will work ok unless itsin your wiring.

If this helps you please ratre me accordingly Good luck.

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch

Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers

Bottom oven not working

A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.

Broken oven

electricity tripping was almost certainly caused by the element going faulty.
remove back panel inside oven and element is exposed and you can often see the damage. replacement is quite easy and get back to me if you want to proceed with repair
