    :rolleyes: FAULT:
    I have a problematic Cannon C60GPX which trips the house RCD as soon as you try to ignite top OR bottom ovens. Top rings ignite okay, clock sets okay.

    :idea: NOTE:
    The fault has not shown up until today when a new 17th Edition Dual RCD Consumer Unit 12 Way 5+5+2 has just been fitted and all tests on all house circuits passed. The RCDs are 80A 30mA. No MCBs trip. It just knocks the whole house off line due to A earth leakage trip on due to the cooker ovens igniting (or not).

    :?: QUESTION:
    Anyone know what item is lightly to need replacement?
    Anyone have a schematic of the circuit?
    Anyone have a parts breakdown of the appliance?
    Anything else that may be useful

    Thanks in advance
    :)

    :idea: Today I removed the FSD Solenoid-Bypass GSD250 ROHS valve on the bottom oven gas feed pipe. It appears that the coil is causing an earth leakage so I took out the inside valve and disconnected the wires and the ovens fired up with no problem. I have ordered a new valve Pt. No. C00193012 at £56. :!:

    I also had to take the bottom oven bulb out as this is on the same circuit and was also causing the RCD to trip independently as well even though the bulb does not appear to be blown.

    :idea: Hope this helps others that may come across the fault and any comments why it may have failed or if you have come across the fault before, please post your experience.
