Ilve oven electrical issues
« on: June 21, 2015, 02:32:53 AM »
My Ilve electric oven has been tripping its circuit breaker. It is on its own independent circuit and when the breaker is reset the power remains on for a couple of minutes, before retripping. This occurs even when the oven is switched off.

I've removed the back cover and noticed a couple of issues. A single active wire travels from the power input to a thermal switch and then I think to the control nob. The plastic connector on the input of the thermal switch is cracked and the connector appears burnt (picture: http://i.imgur.com/sb6zwlR.jpg ). It doesn't appear to be touching the oven frame.

The wiring to the top element is also charred, with the insulation burnt away and copper exposed (picture: http://i.imgur.com/77sr1EY.jpg )

I disconnected the active wire going to the thermal switch and the circuit no longer trips, but when I switch the oven on via the control knob I can see electrical smoke coming from around the element wires.

Any advice about what might be going on would be much appreciated :) I guess there are two separate issues. The oven is about ten years old.
