Stoves 900EF Cooker

The grill element in the top oven has ceased to function.
I would suggest that it simply needs a new one, but what I am concerned about is that when you use the knob to turn the grill on, the light on the dial does not come on, whereas they do when you switch on either of the ovens.
This suggests to me that it is more an electrical problem, rather than the element itself.
Any thoughts on this are much appreciated.

Many thanks.

SOURCE: how can i mend the grill and oven on my electric cooker?

If the rings work o/k then could be timer if it has one make sure it is set to manual and not auto.
Another thing it could be is a faulty selector switch, which selects the different functions.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

there is a safety stat/fuse on top of the oven exterior i think you will find that it also has blown. Make sure you have isolated the appliance at the fuse board first though, Good Luck

If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

SOURCE: Smoke comes out of grill on electric cooker

hi, what you will probably find is that the grill over time has got grease on it and other contaminents from food you have cooked in the past the best thing to do is turn the grill on full and let the smoke burn out open windows etc as it will stink the whole place out it may take a while to get hot but just wait leave it on full and you should find it will burn off all the grease etc and then it will stop smoking.

If you turn it on full and then you get nothing happen after about 10min then turn it off and you would then need to think about getting the element replaced.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?


1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.
