I've been given a built in oven (electric). I wired it up last night, turned
and promptly tripped the RCB for the flat. It now appears to be electrically
dead - that is, supplying it with power doesn't even trip anything. Which
the fault lies there. The switch unit on the wall still provides power out
socket, so I'm assuming I haven't blown anything there (does a cooker unit
its own fuse?). It is, of course, on its own 30A circuit
The oven is a white double oven Ariston TC714. I don't have a manual for it,
can I find any information on the web about it. Nor can I find anything
oven repair (except for microwaves!).
The only possibility that has occurred to me is that when the oven was
the old kitchen (not by me) someone dropped something - e.g. a screw in it,
shorting it. I know nothing about the workings of an oven. I am happy to go
with a voltmeter though, if someone can suggest where to look.
Any help/pointers very welcome,
