Zanussi Oven Not Heating Up

Just like most things in life, your Zanussi often will not last forever. Unfortunately, there may come a time when it decides to stop working and prevent you from cooking all of those delicious meals that you had planned, however, not all hope is lost!

If you find that your Zanussi oven is not heating up, take a look at the possible issues that could have caused it and what you need to do in order to get your cooker back up and running at its very best.

Clock Not Set

It can be taxing enough having to change the time on your oven clock twice a year when the clocks go back and forward, but if your home has experienced a power cut, the likelihood of having to set it again is high. It may be hard to believe but a clock that’s not set can cause your entire oven to suddenly stop working. The good thing here though is that it’s very easy and fast to fix so should be the first thing to check if you find that your Zanussi oven won’t heat up. Simply dig out your Zanussi cooker manual to find out the steps needed to set the time on your specific make and model and hopefully you should have a fully functional oven again in no time.

Faulty Heating Element

Another common cause of your Zanussi oven not heating up could be down to a faulty element, of course! If you find that the following things are present, it is highly likely that your cooker’s element is the reason behind your culinary catastrophe.

  • Your oven clock is set and is set to manual and not automatic
  • The light on the face of your oven remains on until the oven has reached an adequate temperature
  • You can hear the oven’s fan spinning as usual

If you find that all of these are correct, then it is time to look at your Zanussi oven’s element. To check the health of your element, be sure to follow these simple steps:

  1. Identify the two connections where the electricity flows through
  2. Using a multimeter on a low resistance setting, connect one probe on each of the connections
  3. Measure the reading (you should typically find resistance between 20 & 100 ohms)
  4. If no connection is present, then the element is most definitely dead and will need replacing

If your Zanussi heating element is at fault for your oven not heating up, then you can find your replacement today within our extensive collection of replacement parts.

If your oven clock is set correctly and your heating element is in good working order and you still can’t feel the heat, then the next thing to inspect is your Zanussi oven’s thermostat. To do so, you’ll need to first check to see if the temperature indicator light on the face of your oven is working. This is the small light on the front of your oven that remains lit until the desired temperature is reached. If the light does not come on at all, then this may be a sign of a faulty thermostat an indication that it may need to be replaced.

Clock Not Working

As well as your clock not being set, your clock not working altogether can cause your Zanussi oven to not heat up. If you find that there is no power to any of your cooker’s circuits, be sure to check the fuse board and power supply before suspecting an issue with the cooker itself. If you both of these things are in full working order and your clock is still not working or is displaying a hand symbol meaning you are not able to set it properly, then this means your clock has unfortunately failed and will need to be replaced.

Terminal Blocks

The final thing to check to find out why your Zanussi oven won’t heat up is its terminal block. The typical things to look out for that suggest an issue here include the clock not displaying or some parts of your cooker not working at all. If your terminal block is to blame, you can find it at the back of the appliance where there may be a number of circuits connected by links from the main power connection. Before checking anything, be sure to disconnect your cooker from the mains power supply. Now, you need to look for the following:

  • If any connector or link is loose, which can result in heat and damage
  • Signs of charrings

If you do find any of the above, then the terminal block of your Zanussi cooker will need to be replaced. You can find our collection of replacement Zanussi terminal blocks below.

They may not seem it but your cooker's door seal is very important! If the oven door seal is damaged or missing, valuable heat will be able to escape your oven, meaning it will take longer for it to heat up and cook your meals; and we all know how annoying it is when you have to wait longer than expected for your food to cook. Not only is this frustrating, but it's also a waste of energy. The role of your oven door seal is to contain the heat inside your oven. Therefore, if it isn't doing its job properly, your cooker will be on for longer than expected, and will be using more electricity than required to cook your meal.

Zanussi Replacement Elements

If your Zanussi cooker is no longer heating up, it may be because you need to replace the oven element. Fortunately, this task is nowhere near as difficult as you might expect, and even if you've never attempted to repair a cooker before, you're probably more than capable of getting it done. Read on for expert advice from the Cooker Spare Parts team - your trusty Zanussi appliance will be up and running again before you know it!

How to Order a Zanussi Oven Element:

It's very easy to find and purchase the right element for your Zanussi oven here at Cooker Spare parts, but first, you'll need to find out your cooker's model number (e.g. ZOB551X). This information can be found on the data badge, which is usually located behind the oven door on Zanussi appliances.

Once you've written down the model number, head over to the Cooker Spare Parts homepage, enter your manufacturer and model number, and click 'Search Parts'. We will then show you a full list of the parts that are compatible with your cooker.

Alternatively, if you already know exactly which element you need, you can head straight to our Zanussi oven elements page and simply select the one you wish to purchase. Either way, our secure and straightforward online checkout system will allow you to place your order in just a few clicks.

How to Install Your New Zanussi Oven Element:

Once your new element has arrived, replacing your broken element is a fairly simple task. The exact method may vary depending on which Zanussi cooker you own, but here's a rough guide on how to replace your Zanussi oven element:

  • Ensure that your cooker is switched off at the wall.

  • Open the oven door, remove the shelves, and take off the panel at the back of the oven to access the space where the element is housed. You may need to unscrew the panel with a screwdriver before you can remove it.

  • The broken element should be held in with screws, so pick up your screwdriver again and take these out so that you can remove it.

  • You will also need to gently pull the wires out of the broken element - be sure to take a photo beforehand in case you forget which wire goes where!

  • Take your new element and connect the wires that you just removed from the old one (refer to the photograph you took if you can't remember where each one goes).

  • Screw the element back into place, then screw the back panel on and put your oven shelves back in.

  • Dispose of the broken element (preferably by recycling it).
