Is your Electrolux oven tripping every time you try to use it but you have no idea why? In this article, we will look at the causes of this problem and what to do about it.
Electrolux Oven Tripping Breaker
Below, we have listed the three possible reasons why your Electrolux oven would keep tripping the circuit breaker.
1. Overloaded Circuit
Every circuit breaker has a maximum number of electrical appliances it can hold. If you have too may appliances on one circuit breaker, it will cause it to trip. If you notice that your oven isn’t the only appliance that keeps tripping, this may be the problem. If you wish to use your oven urgently, switch off one or more appliances on the circuit breaker to stop it from tripping. If you want a more permanent fix, contact an electrician.
2. Short Circuiting
If the insulate part of a wire in the circuit breaker comes in contact with another wire, it will cause it to short circuit. This will end up tripping the breaker. This happens most times if your home’s wiring has deteriorated. This isn’t a problem you can fix yourself. Contact an electrician to look at the problem to fix it.
3. Problems With The Oven Itself
If some of the components in the oven fail, it could cause the oven to keep tripping the circuit breaker. If you have called an electrician to inspect your circuit breaker and there is nothing wrong with it, the oven is probably at fault. It is usually difficult to determine which oven component is actually faulty. So, contact a technician to look at the problem.
