No error codes. The time 1200 is displayed

When you reset the clock does it come on before tripping or it trips almost immediately ?


Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Trips immediately but not the oven circuit breaker but the main one for the house

OK and it was heating fine before this issue started ?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Yes. Last time i used it was last friday

OK, the problem seems to be with the element that is faulty and will need replacement.

You may test it with a multimeter for continuity before replacement.

If element tests fine the selector switch and thermostat should be checked.


If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
