Had a similar problem over a year ago on my Rangemaster, neither of the ovens would come on, only the gas hob worked.
The cost of a new display unit was around £100 plus so decided to check out the unit by removing it (it was quite easy to do; but remember to isloate the cooker from the mains before you start dismantling).
On my display there were six wires plugged into it. I marked each one and the display before removing them so that they all went back to the correct location (i am not an electrician and am therefore an electrical numpty).
Firstly I degreased each male and female connector using an electrical spray degreaser/cleaner and then cleaned them using very fine emery paper and a special pen with glassfibre bristles until they gleamed and then gave them a final spray to remove any debrie left by the cleaning process.
Before i put everything back i also cleaned all the connectors to the switches etc which were accessable in a similar manner; about another eight/ten in total.
Following reassembly and switching the power back everything started working again. All this work took about an hour and my cooker has been working fine for the last 12 months.
You need to press 2 or more of the timer/clock buttons in seqeunce to cancel the auto setting.
The sequence of buttons varies according to the make of cooker, so just keep pressing the buttons until you hit the correct sequence.
Hope this helps.
It sounds exactly the same as I am experiencing on my oven of the same model. My theory is that the full flame gas is controlled by a thermostat, and that this has broken hence why the oven only stays on preheat. This will be a matter of a replacement part. Most likely the thermostat is a bi-metal strip that, because it has heated and cooled so many times in it's life it has simply finally given up. Try searching online for the correct part and get a corgi registered fitter or another suitably qualified fitter to come and replace it.
User manuals are hard to find.
The problem I had was setting the clock on a single Diplomat oven, with no clock button. Here's my solution :
DIPLOMAT OVEN OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The Diplomat single oven is controlled by two knobs and a set of buttons along the middle of the control panel.
The left knob sets the temperature of the oven, while the right knob selects the function to be performed, e.g. fan oven, grill, etc.
The buttons along the middle set the cooker clock, the start and end times of cooking, and the “+” and “-“ buttonswill increase or decrease the time shown on the cooker’s clock. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OVEN WILL NOT OPERATE UNTIL THE CLOCK IS SET.
If there is any interruption to the power supply (including manually switching off at the main switch) the oven will not operate until the clock is reset.
Here’s how to set the clock:
First press simultaneously the first two buttons to the left of the control panel. They are marked as a Bell symbol (Alarm) , and a steaming Cooking Pot (Start of Cooking Time). Then immediately press the plus “+” or minus “-“ buttons to increase or decrease the time displayed. When the desired time has been reached, leave it for a few seconds, and it will remain set at this time.Any further changes to the displayed time will require this procedure to be repeated.
Hope this helps!
