It could be that the overheat thermostat is kicking in, albeit earlier than it should do. Have you checked to see that the oven thermostat is working correctly and is not heating the oven up too much ( does the neon go off and on) and is the oven cooling fan running ok in the background. If these two appear to be ok, then you may need to replace the overheat thermostat.
(The oven cooling fan should remain on for about 5 to 10 mins after either oven or grill has been used. If this isn't happening or it is not running correctly then that is why the overheat device is shutting the oven off). As a thought, are the top oven and grill working ok? if they are, then it narrows it down to either the oven thermostat or the overheat sensor.
First things first, the grill only works with the door down. Directly you shut it, a microswitch operates and shuts the elements off. ( Of course the top oven operates with the door shut).
There are two options for the grill. Turning the control switch to the left operates the inner element only. Turning it to the right operates both the inner and outer elements together.
With either option, setting 5 (the max) has that option on full, whereas settings 1 to 4 switch on and off.
Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.
It sounds like the overheat safety stat is cutting the oven off.
This is prevent the oven overheating and catching fire.
They can go faulty and operate prematurely, causing the prob u are experiencing.
If it is built in , make sure it has adequate ventilation, as this can cause the prob.
Also check to see if it has an external cooling fan fitted, these can fail, and again cause the prob.
They are usually fitted under the top cover of the oven, and designed to keep the oven cool.
It should come on shortly after turning the oven on
These things are the most likely cause of the prob.
plz rate my solution.
there are two fans and one is out of sight and is to cool the casing. normal for the casing fan to run for up to 20mins after switching off. after 4 years, maybe getting a bit worn and hence noisy. nothing to worry about
