Re: Faulty oven

You need to either set the time, or just press the centre button to activate the cooker.

Ignition Switch ?

There is a safety device built into gas outlets to prevent the gas from running if it fails to ignite. It works by heat. If a valve is not heated enough then the main valve will not remain open. That's why many gas appliances ask you to leave a second valve open for as much as 30 seconds after igniting. These valves are highly reliable. It sounds like your appliance may not be warm enough. Try to run it on high for 5-10 seconds before you turn it down. To access the valves; pull all the knobs straight off first then try to remove the facing by the screws. A make & model would be helpful since there are many different configurations.

How can I stop the oven igniter continuing to spark after the oven has lit

This should not be a problem as the setup is it doesn't know which gas knob has been turned on, therefore the oven and grill spark to ignite either .

Hope this is helpful


PS if I had known the make and model number you can probably get a manual online.

Hi Guys I have a Stoves 720EF Double Oven and Grill. Whilst halfway through cooking some sausages on the grill this evening, the grill suddenly stopped working (plus the LED for the grill knob showing...

If the element and the indicator light both stopped working this suggests a problem with the power supply for the grill control. Either the grill control has no power going to it or it is faulty and requires replacement. If you are not sure what you are doing you'd better get a tech. to look at it, it can be fairly complicated for the untrained person.

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...

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 / top oven knob will not operate the grill any suggestions?

It is possible the knob is slipping round and not turning the spindle of the switch, or the spindle is broken inside the switch, or the switch is partially seized up.
Pull the kjnob off the switch, and try turning it on wioth pair of pliers or grips, if that works, then the switch is probably o/k.
Also spray some WD40 onto the switch spindle, and inside the switch.
Please leave feedback.

Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does

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.

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.

Hotpoint eg76x grill

Hi there,

If the grill is working in some positions on the switch but not in others it sounds like the switch under the knob may be the problem. Does the same switch control the fan? If yes I would say you will have to replace that switch and that the contacts more than likely are worn inside the switch. Switches are usually not hard to replace and usually have lugs or a push/pull connector. Make sure you TURN OFF the POWER before you start trying to remove it. Hope this helps.
