Hi all, new to the forum after leeching for so long!
Anyway some background information:
Replaced old oven due to broken grill element. The old oven had no issues besides the broken element. It was wired straight into the RCD, no plug/socket etc.
New oven fitted and wired up (correctly) however the main oven when I turn it too 200 degrees for example it will trip. But then I reset the RCD and it will work.
I'm assuming the cable used initially will be rated high enough to cope with the new oven as it was just a like for like replacement, double oven for double oven. Both outputs are near enough the same.
The mineral in the mineral insulated element will absorb moisture it is hygroscopy, if the seal at the end is damaged or if it has been in storage for a long time. The normally way to get them running is to connect to a non RCD protected supply and heat them up to drive off the moisture. However if new I would just return it as faulty.
