Question about Zanussi ZBF360 Electric Single Oven

Zanussi Built-In Oven Clock keeps resetting?

have a Zanussi ZBF-360 cooker and every so often the clock resets to 12:00. At this time, there is a buzzing sound as if it is on a timer. None of the timers are set and all read 0:00 (ecxept the clock).

Is this a short circuit?

The 1000uF/10V condensator in the timer unit has to be replaced.

The problem is most likely with the Large Rectangle Grey X2 Capacitor on the clock circuit board.

From my understanding, although they are self-healing, as they are subjected to power surges they deteriorate and allow less and less current through the circuit until they get to a point where there isn't enough current flowing to firmly latch the relay (which is why there is a buzzing from the relay turning on and off quickly).

My clock was also at the point where there wasn't enough power for the timer beeper, so when the beeper went off it would reset the clock after about half a beep. And if the clock was started at 12:00, when it got to 16:08 it would reset as there wasn't enough power to display all those led segments.

I replaced the 1000uF capacitor, which didn't change anything, then replaced the X2 capacitor and now it works perfectly!

Hopefully that is helpful to someone. :)

My zanussi cooker isn't working after a power cut...even the timer/clock isn't flashing to reset wht can I do


Claire. Have you checked the cooker supply switch? (Usually on the wall near the cooker) If it has a neon light is this on? If not or no neon check the circuit fuse/mcb in the fuseboard. Allan Pointer.

Zanussi oven zbf 360 + bulb blows repeatedly


bulbs blow from incorrect voltage in use or loose ground wires ( arcing out)
if they fail while the oven is on it is because the bulb construction glass is wrong
bulbs used in ovens need a special heated treated glass and are generally only available from the service agent
failing immediately on turning on indicates a bigger problem that the bulb so call in an electrician to test the system

The bottom oven on my zanussi zuq 875 has stopped working. No power indications of any kind.Top oven works fine. Followed instructions in manual but no power at all.ie; indicator lights, fan ,oven light....


Hello,
Have you checked that the timer clock is set and not flashing,because the rest of the cooker will work after power outage but for the main/fan oven to work the clock needs resetting.

Hope this helps.

Oven not working - rest of appliance fine


It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed and will need to be replaced.

This not an overly expensive part to have replaced and should be much less than the cost of buying a new oven although you would need to compare actual costs in your area.

Zanussi oven timer buzzes at 20.00 then resets to 12.00


Gave up and bought a new timer module for £66 from espares. Timer board has microscopic components so even if you knew what was wrong it wouldn't be fixable.

This tutorial will show you how to check your Zanussi element and how to replace your Zanussi cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Zanussi manual.
  2. If you're Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Clock


Hi this is propably too late now but we moved in to our new house six months ago and have a Zanussi ZBF 360 oven, and had no idea how to set the timer / clock. After fiddling around with the oven clock for the last 6 months i managed to set the clock. It shouldn't be much different to the one you have. Hope this helps you and others in the future.

Click the middle button until the little red things on the screen moved round to the clock symbol, then press + or - to get to the correct time, once you have done this it will flash for a few seconds then it will stop flashing and the clock is set. The same goes for the timer to set it when you want to cook something for a period of time eg: ten mins.

As for getting the oven timer to turn it's self on and off I am still messing with it and when i have mastered it I will let people know.
