Zanussi ZPB 1260, oven not heating, replaced element, still no joy.
Stat seems to be working as there is changing temp readings when other elements are being used. any ideas? checked pcb visually burned capacitor on pcb.
George-Allsorts :

Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Are you referring to the main fan oven element.. If so can you tell me if the fan is going round in the oven?

JACUSTOMER-awo14tp1- : Yes fan still operating and all other elements still operating with temp control
George-Allsorts :

Sorry for the delay but I am away at a whitegoods conference at the moment

Then this indicates that any thermal cut-out is still working...

Did this happen after a power cut or power trip?

Do you have a multi-meter by which you can test the thermostat?

JACUSTOMER-awo14tp1- : Thermostat tested seems ok.
JACUSTOMER-awo14tp1- : Thermostat tested seems ok
JACUSTOMER-awo14tp1- : burn marks and leakage around capicitor on PCB
George-Allsorts :

Hello... Can you provide me with the PNC or Prod number of the appliance please as this will enable me to peruse the wiring diagrams and part information for that exact model..

Also, can you tell me if there was a power cut or a consumer unit trip-out before this problem started.

JACUSTOMER-awo14tp1- : No power cuts - Unit model number is ***** ZPB 1260 and card number is ***** DGT/ETC - MB/FT/SL. OVC 1000 Rev.D
George-Allsorts :

I'll need the PNC or Prod number.. It will be on a data plate which will be at the bottom of the oven opening or alternatively on the back of the oven..
