To maximise the life of your appliance, here are a few tips:

The most frequent breakdowns

Before going any further in the diagnosis, it is always a good idea to check that your oven is properly plugged in and that the socket is indeed supplied with electricity.

The fuses blow when your oven is switched on

Switch off all appliances that may consume a lot of electricity and that could overload your electrical installation (clothes iron, radiator, hot water tank). Then, check whether the breakdown occurs again when the oven is switched on. If necessary, check the resistance of your appliance. The problem could also come from a short circuit.

My oven doesn’t heat up/heats up badly

First of all, make sure that the door is closed properly. Some appliances have a safeguard should the door not be closed properly. Please check your appliance’s operating instructions; the procedures to follow in case of a problem are often described there and can help you out of a delicate situation.


Most recent ovens display fault codes, which will make it easier for you to identify the problem you are encountering. The operating instructions for your appliance contain all the explanations necessary for interpreting them.
