Thanks for this.
I have been away for New Year hence not replying sooner.
The problem is with the bottom oven.
The top oven with the grill has not been used much as when I put the grill on, it blows the electrics and RCJ!!!! so I haven`t bothered with it.
If you think, in the end, it can`t be mended/fixed/repaired could you please tell me the litre capacity of the bottom oven and also suggest a Creda replacement model to buy.
Ideally I would like to be able to fix the problem!!! that`s my first choice
Thanks very much
I have run oven tests and grill tests as follows:
Oven ( done twice)-
Tried 150 degrees: then 180 degrees: then 220 degrees. All 3 temperatures done twice for 15 - 20 minute period of time i.e. repeated.
The same each time as follows:
Both side elements appear to be fine - no sign of blowing etc. Both sides/elements do not glow red. This is irrespective of temperature reached and checked twice. However, they are hot both sides and giving out heat on both sides for all 3 temperatures and which increases when 220 degrees.
Then I tested the grill - same principle of twice repeated test. The same result both times.
Both elements appear to be fine. They both glow red when turned on.
The Single grill knob set to number 2 blows the RCD after 2 minutes so could not test at 3 or on High.
The Twin grill knob set to High blows the RCD after 2 minutes. However, when the Twin grill knob is set to either 2 or 3 for 15 - 20 minutes, each time, it does not blow the RCD on either setting. So some grill capability on 2 and 3 settings for the Twin knob.
Please advise what I need to do and would be so grateful for parts numbers for oven and grill.
It was also easy to remove and replace the oven sides - brilliant - not done that before !!
Thank you so much for all your help - wonderful. So easy to follow.
Thanks - that is what I suspected i.e. that is might be best to replace the oven and grill elements.
The bottom oven elements are not the same as the grill elements. The oven ones are wider in width overall when as they are - on their side. The other difference is that the oven ones have equal length as they go to both ends. The grill ones do not - the return part is less than the full length first run.
However there is no link to the Ebay website you suggest in your answer.
Could you please send it so I can double check it
Thank you so much for the links.
Yes, both of those i.e. bottom oven and top grill elements look like what I have.
Does it matter that one is for a 1300w oven and the other for a 1200 w oven?
Do you have the Creda parts numbers please? or are they now Indesit ?
I am now going to sign off as I want to watch something on the box!!! so no hurry to respond for you either!
Thanks so much
HiOk the part number for the grill element is C00233740And the part number for the oven element is C00233776These are the new part number on the Indesit/creda database
As to the wattage that difference wont matter. Them elements were none genuine so that will be why its different. The original should be the same wattage.Regards
Thank you so much for all your help.
I have spoken to my super Appliances chap this morning and he will get the parts and fix the new elements in for me.
I am very grateful to you for all your advice - brilliant
That`s it now
