I have a moffat stove and it keeps shutting off on me. The door lock light comes on then the oven shuts off. Does anyone know how to fix the door lock.

    I seem to have the same problem. Has it got something to do with the timer? First the light was working, then nothing, but not fused. Then the oven would not switch on. This is a Moffat Comtessa Digital. Help!

    I have more or less the same problem. I think it has something to do with the timer/clock? Getting quite desperate. Mine is a Contessa Digimatic and the model number on the stove is not listed anywhere on any of the Moffat sites I can find!!

Oven will not come on error message F31 appears

the oven needs two things 1, gas or electricity plus 2, thermocouple.
If gas try lighting manually by removing oven bottom plate of oven when possible. That puts everything out in the open. If it does not open that way go to the bottom broiler opening and light manually.
this will tell you where the problem is.

Electric oven, go to fuse box and shut off supply line them turn back o n. This is easiest fix and resets the stove. On electric stove there may be an interlock that shuts oven off when the door is open.
Hope this gets you started!!!

Ignis AKL828 door hinges locked in shut position... door off oven!

Take a pair of pliers and pull the hinge out of the socket. This will take care of it. After doing this, then simply set te door back in place and shut.

Oven Lock stuck open before start of self-cleaning cycle

Sounds like you bent the door where the lock is. You might have to replace the door.

Lock light is on and do not know how to get it off

hi there,

the light is on because the door is not shutting correctly. check the door lock mechanism or the door gasket and make sure the the door is on its hinges. the door should go out.

if this still doesn't solve the problem, it's the light socket itself. i would recommend to have it replaced.

Self cleaning won't shut off

that is because it needs to cool down before the oven will unlock.There should be a timer running and when it gets to "zero" it should unlock.

Oven shuts down

My mother-in-law's oven was doing the same thing. At first it was actually turning completely off which led me to think it was a loose connection on the circuit board. That turned out to be exactly what it was. I had to dismantle the front of the oven, remove the circuit board, and resolder the connections. The first time I did this I must have missed a few bad joints and that's when it started doing what you described (shuting off and showing lock door). I pulled it back apart and found a few more bad solder joints which I fixed; so far so good. This is of course one of those "don't try this at home" fixes but it least lets you know what is causing the problem.
