This answer was rated:

Switch ovens on yesterday started to get warm and blew fuses. Top oven working.
JA: Is your oven gas or electric? How old is it?
Customer: neff double oven over 10years old I think
JA: How long has this been going on with your Neff oven? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just happened yesterday but blows fuses if use it
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: how do I know what’s wrong?


Can you post the model number please.

Also is it just the bottom oven not working?

If so is the fan still running and the thermostat light coming on the front but just no heat?

Or is nothing working on the lower oven?

If the clock set or flashing?

It is the bottom oven not working. If we switch it on it blows the fuses for all sockets so cannot say if light Or fan working. Clock is working. Trying to locate model number

Ok if its blowing the fuse as soon as you turn it on then its more then likely the oven element has failed and is shorting to earth.

If you are looking at fixing this yourself then you need to access the oven element inside the oven and remove it.

Then tape the wires up and then turn it back on and see if it stops the tripping.

If it does then we know its the element.

But if you cannot remove the element from inside the oven then you need to remove the oven from the housing unit and remove the back panel and then you can access the wiring to the element and then you can disconnect the wiring and tape them up and then turn the power on and see if it stops the tripping.

Check that if you can as most of the time for the fault you have here its the fan element that causes the fault.
