Question about Stoves 1000DFDL Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

Open Question

Replacing/refixing roller mechanism to door catch of fan oven

The top screw holding the door catch roller mechanism to the fan oven on my Stoves 1000DFDL has come loose and no longer holds the top of the roller mechanism in place, making the door difficult/impossible to close. the roller catch mechanism moves back slightly when you try to close the door which means that the catch on the door itself does not get caught by the rollers.
The first question is, is the roller mechanism held in place with a nut on the end of the screw or is there a thread in the body of the mechanism which may have stripped causing the screw not to be able to hold it in place?
If it is a nut how do you access the mechanism to replace it?
If there is a thread in the mechanism, is it an option to tap a slightly oversize thread and to fix a slightly oversize screw in it?
If the only solution is to replace the roller mechnism completely, can you give details how to do this and how to access the mechanism?

SOURCE: Seized screws in Stoves 'Range 1000G Gas Range Cooker (LPG)

I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!

A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

SOURCE: Newhome 1000dfdl main fan oven appears to stay at

whilst the fan is running the heating element which is usually in parallel with it should heat.. This usually means a faulty element whilst the temperature light remains on.
but if the temperture light is off then its likely to be a faulty thermostat

SOURCE: Top oven thermostat Stoves 800DF - fitting?

you dont need to remove the front panel, you need to undo the two black screws on the side of the hob unit, remove the two plastic plugs they went through allowing you to raise the hob, and remove just the back off the cooker this provides you access to all the areas you need you can then follow where all the cables go oh yes nearly forgot the thermostat is held in place by two screws you simply pull the knob off and there they are. ive just done the fan oven one and it seemed fairly straight forward, but please do remember to turn off the power to the cooker first all the connections push on using spade connectors, oh yes for legal reasons this is for information only and i wont be held liable for injury or damage caused by unqualified people following this information to fix it themselves as i would always have to recommend that you use a competant person ie a person who is trained, experienced and has sufficient knowledge to do the job, but those that do want to fix it do so at their own risk and i hope all goes well with getting the problem fixed

Oven not heating up but fan comes on, in the larger oven . Model 1000dfdl


Main oven element probably needs replacing, usualy they only last about 4-5 years depending on usage, fairly cheap to replace, around 15 pounds for the part, fairly easy job for diy enthusiast, or no more than 30 mins work for a appliance repair person. On most ovens, first isolate the oven for safety at the double pole switch outlet. open oven , remove all shelves etc, look for a metal cover at the back which covers the fan and element, usualy two or three screws on the cover to remove, behind cover you see the element and fan, remove two screws on the element mounting plate and carefully pull out with the wires, carefully pull off the two connectors on the element, connect new element and fit in reverse procedure of above.

Stoves 900DFa oven cuts out


Hi.

The most probable cause is failure in your panel cooling fan 9not the one inside your oven)

If the appliance switches on again after 15 - 20 minutes then the fault is most likely here.

Unfortunately as you have gas the you will need a Gas Safe Certified engineer to repair

Oven will not come on to cook, it will come on in cleaning mode


I've seen this problem on my own oven. If yours, like mine, has a door that has a locking mechanism, the catch is most likely stuck in the locked position. The door still closes and the lever still moves (though it may be very stiff).
Take off the screws around the locking plate, manually push the catch to the open position, spray the catch VERY, VERY lightly with WD-40 and dry it thoroughly. Close the oven door and try the lever again.
At this point, it should move freely and your oven should be able to switch between LOCKED/Self-Clean Mode and UNLOCKED/Cook Mode. If it does still get stuck, you'll just has to a) try lubricating the catch a bit more or b) keep a screwdriver handy! ;)

New Cornu Fe Stove - Oven door pops open


I had the exact same issue with my Cornue Fe (only on the right hand side oven). The other symptom I noticed was that the door itself didn't close as smoothly as the left hand side oven.

Take a look at the alignment of the "post" sticking out from the oven relative to the spring loaded catch on the door. These need to be *very* well aligned vertically in order to keep the door closed as it heat cycles. You'll notice that the post has a depression at the end of it (furthest away from the door). The door catch has an upper and lower spring loaded roller that is supposed to "catch" on both sides of the depression. If you are misaligned vertically, then only one side of the catch will be applying sufficient force to the depression.

In my case, the post and the catch were misaligned by about 4-6mm. In fact, I noticed that repeated opening & closing of the door was actually causing some wear on the upper roller of the catch. To fix, I needed to raise the door, which was accomplished by adjusting the hinges.

I removed the door from the oven, which can be done by removing the screws on the hinges. The hinges consist of a bottom & top knob that slot into the door (similar to the way refrigerator hinges work). The hinges themselves are made of ~1/4" metal (could be stainless, but it's relatively soft stainless). I put the lower hinge in a vise (appropriate covering to prevent scratching) and *gently* bent it up to adjust the door upwards. Putting it back together required some help (the door is heavy), but after a bit of work it was all back. Thankfully the alignment was right the first time. This whole process took about 20 minutes.

In my case, I suspect that either the wife or kids had put too much weight on the door at some point and bent it out of alignment. The problematic door had about 4-6mm of "play" between the top and bottom hinges prior to my adjustment--the working door had zero "play". You might want to check to see if you have any such play before you do this work (you can either look at the hinge itself or simply lift up on the door at the hinge point to see if it moves). If you don't have this same play, but you do have misalignment, then you'll need to adjust both top and bottom hinges.

The other possiblity is that you might have a weak spring in the catch mechanism. You can check that by gently pushing a flat head screwdriver in between the two rollers and feeling for how much force is required to separate them.

Of course, you can also just call the La Cornue service folks and have them check it out.
