Resolved Question:

We have a Zanussi gas cooker - model no ZCG662GNC - with a temperature issue with the bottom oven. It is consistently too hot. We have bought an oven thermometer and checked the temperatures at all settings from 1-9 and on all 3 shelf levels. At the lowest shelf level the oven temperature is consistently 30-40 degrees Celsius higher than it should be. Is this a thermostat problem or possibly something more complicated?

Hi George - PNC###-##-####02

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Looking at the diagrams and the way your appliance operates, I would say Yes, it will be the thermostat..

Would you like a link to the correct thermostat to purchase?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes please (we are in the UK). Would it be fairly simple to fit?

There seems to be something called an 'overheat protection thermostat' - is this the item?

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

No Peter, that is not what you need...

What you need is this part 3970526012

Please rate the assistance given by me today & feel free to then return for further advice on this matter

Thanks George - this is the thermostat for the bottom oven, yes?

Are there any online videos or guidance on fitting?

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
It is listed as the thermostat for the Main oven
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Great. Any online videos or guidance on fitting?

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Sorry Peter, the only guidence I'm allowed give you on this one is that the part should be changed by a Gas Safe Engineer only.. The reason is that you must break into the gas supply rail to fit the part.
