Question about Stoves 720EF Electric Double Oven

STOVES 720ef Oven Programme won't go off automatic

The timer will not go off automatic and I can't get it to set the time of day to use as automatic. Followed instructions in manual. Sometimes can turn oven on only for it to switch itself off after a few minutes.

    Have you tried turning the whole thing off at the master switch, waiting a while and then turning it back on and then setting manual on the timer? From what you are saying it appears to confirm that the oven is in auto mode as it is truning off after a short time.

This is a solution - of sorts - but probably not the one that you were hoping for.

My Stoves 720EF oven developed the same fault.

I tried pressing the buttons in various combinations and I tried switching the power off and on, restting the timer and the clock, no joy.

I then tried getting hold of a copy of the manual and trying to fix it, no joy. Called up Stoves and booked a visit from a specialist service engineer, costing £75 +VAT for the call out, and was advised that the engineer would attempt to repair it but it might need a replacement circuit board, costing a further £110 plus VAT.

engineer arrived on the appointed day and was straight onto swapping out the circuit board - not much scope for "attempt to repair" - so that was about £190 plus VAT to fix it. job took about 25 mins and didnt seem to need anything beyond what any electrician (or electrically-expert DIYer) could do.

comes with a 12 month warranty - hopefully it will work without any issues !

If you have a regular electrician you might prefer to buy the board and get your electrician to do the job - or do it yourself, assuming that you are suitably skilled and qualified.

hope this helps

cheers

I have a stoves 720ef oven and cannot get rid of the auto


The handbook says:-
To cancel the automatic setting and return the oven to manual operation, press the cook time and ready time buttons simultaneously. These are the second and third buttons from the left. If you have done that and it is not working, try turning the complete oven off for awhile - say 30 mins and turning back on. If this still doesn't work then it may be that the timer/clock has gone faulty.

For the 720ef , this is what you need to do. Hopefully this will translate to your 900.
There are five buttons on the clock panel and from left to right they are:- Minute Minder, Cook time, Ready Time, Plus and Minus.
TO SET THE TIME OF DAY
Press the Cook Time button and the Ready Time button simultaneously. Use the Plus and Minus buttons to set the time.(24hr clock).
TO SELECT AN ALARM TONE.
Press the Minus button to listen to the first tone. Release it and press it again to listen to the second tone etc (3 tones)
Releasing the button after the tone has sounded will automatically set that tone.
SETTING THE MINUTE MINDER.
Press the Minuter Minder button and either the Plus or Minus buttons simultaneously to set the time.
You can cancel the timer at any time by setting it back to 00.00 by using the Minus button.
After setting, the display will revert to the time of day, but by pressing the Minute Minder button again, the display will show the remaining time.

To reset the cook time, use the plus and minus buttons to set it to zero.
To cancel the automatic setting and return the oven to manual operation, press the COOK TIME and READY TIME buttons simultaneously.
I hope this helps.

Stoves 720ef small 'A' appears left of display. how do i get rid of this and return to manual? without fiddling cannot turn oven on. I have no manual


If the 'A' appears, it means that the automatic setting has been enabled. To stop this and return to manual setting, press the COOK TIME and READY TIME buttons simultaneously.
The COOK TIME button is the second from the left and the READY TIME is the third from the left.
If the 'A' keep s reappearing by itself, then it could mean that the timer is going faulty. ESPARES should be able to supply one.

Having taken the oven out to fix a problem with the hob (720EF double oven and grill), reinstalled the oven and powered –up, the clock won’t come on and stay on, the oven and hob appear to work! Any...


Both the top and bottom oven will only work if a time (any time) has been set on the clock. Setting the time operates a contact to switch the power through. The only exception is the grill. This will work even if the time has not been set. So if the oven controls/lights and heating work, to me it means that the clock/timer is half working and the only thing that isn't is the display.
I haven't had the clock/timer to bits but a fellow blogger has said that in some timers there is an electrolytic capacitor that controls the display. When this fails as they are renowned for doing, the dispaly mal functions. If there is one then Maplin have some - VHR41W/43W and DT64U depending on value etc. Let us know how you get on.
If you need a new clock/timer they are around £80 from espares.

A (automatic cooking)remains in the digital reader which means that the electric oven/grill and fan oven won't work. It will not clear from the box.


What happens when you turn the power off to the whole oven, leave it off for a few mins and then reapply? If the automatic is still set it could be the clock is faulty.
Have you tried resetting the clock as per the handbook?
