I confirm that you should get an oven thermometer as I did as my 720 wasn't behaving itself. Lakeland do one that works well and is not to expensive. I found that the fan oven was working ok but the top oven was way out, i.e. setting 160 on the dial produced 140 in the oven. The thermostat sensors for both ovens are located at the rear of each oven at the top right. They should be clear of all congealed fat etc and should be bright and silver in colour. If they are dirty this may cause them not to work correctly. Lakeland again do an oven cleaner that you paint on with a brush. It may take more than one go but it cetainly removes all the rubbish and may well restore the thermostat to near normal operation. When cleaning the sensors be careful of the thin wire from them as if this is damaged you will have to have a complete new thermostat.
(The oven cleaner works on everything inside the oven including the stay clean lining).
As a final thought is the cooling fan running when the oven fan is on as this may cause the oven to overheat?
Best of luck.

You need to check the oven temp with a thermometer against the temp you have selected.
It is possible that it is getting to hot, causing the safety stat to operate to prevent furher overheating..Most makers state that a 10% tolerance is acceptable, that means it is o/k if the temp is 10% lower or higher than the selected temp.

Make sure any vetilation vents are clear.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Oven doesn't seem to heat up enough


There is a cooling fan In a STOVES 720 to keep the fabric of the oven cool. If this fails the overheat thermostats will cut in and shut the heating elements off. The cooling fan does in fact blow air out of various places in and around the doors. The top oven has a small element and takes a long time to warm up. If you are not confident that the thermostats are working correctly, then I suggest you purchase an oven thermometer from someone like Lakeland and see how that relate to what you are actually setting on the cooker dial. As I said the top oven leave a lot to be desired!

Have a stoves 720 es main oven fan does not stay on to cool oven after switch off> also the oven will not trun back on when it is still hot or warm ? will


First things first. There are two fans. One in the bottom oven and one to provide background cooling. The background cooling fan turns on when anything is turned on. (Fan oven/top oven/grill). Just operate the top oven for a moment and this should cause the cooling fan to operate. There is a printed circuit board that controls the cooling fan and for how long the fan should stay on once everything has been turned off. (About 7 mins). If this fan is not running then the fan/motor could be faulty, or the circuit board or the resistor on the fan terminal block. The reason the oven will not turn back on is that the residual heat in the oven unit as a whole against the fan oven, is probably too high which causes the overheat device to operate.
You will have to take the oven out of the kitchen carcass, take the top and rear panels off and get an electrician to test and found out which item is not working/failed. Try espares for parts.

Electric grill is intermittant or cuts out after 5/10 minutes


There are two overheat devices in the oven. One feeds the oven timer/programmer for the main oven and the other feeds the grill. If the cooling fan is running ok, then I would suspect it is the cutout feeding the grill elements that has perhaps with age is not working as it should do.

Stoves efa700h grill cuts out after around 20 mins, the grill gets very hot, read a cpl of posts about fans and thermo cut outs, easy job? appreciate any help


On the 720 there are two thermal cut outs. Looking at the wiring diagram, the cooling fan and the clock are the only two items that will run independant of the cut outs. So, is the cooling fan running ok or not? If it is and the grill is cutting out, then it could be the thermal cut out that has aged - or the fan may be running slowly because of age or there is a build up of dirt grease under and around the oven and on the outlets that stop air curculating properly.
If the fan isn't running then you need to replace it or the fan timer PCB may have failed. Once you have gotten into the oven's inards, you can test the fan to see if it runs or not.

There are seperate thermal (overheat) cutout devices for both the top and bottom ovens. First check to see if the lower oven fan is running ok and is not restricted by grease or fat (there are 4 self tapping screws that hold the fan cover on) and the thermostat is switching off and on as it should. You should also check that the main background cooling fan is running and switches off a few mins after the ovens have turned off. If these check out ok, then it is possibly the lower oven thermal cutout.

Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.

If you have the handbook, it has sufficient information to enable you to get to the parts that you may need to check. However, working out what has failed is a little more involved and will need someone with electrical experience with a meter etc to work out what has failed.

As an aside, the cut off devices for both ovens are separate. So if both ovens have the same problem, then it could be the cooling fan.

If you need a copy of the handbook supply an email address and you can have a copy via the BT Digital Vault.

Stoves 720EF - main fan not working


When you say the main fan, do you mean the background cooling fan or do you mean the circulating fan in the bottom oven?
Do you have the handbook for this oven as the wiring diagrams are included in it. If you haven't, you can take a copy from my BT Digital Vault - all I need is an email address to register you.
Looking at the diagram, the power for the cooling fan comes via the timer board. If, as you say, the fan doesn't work at all, the timer board could have gone faulty.

My stoves 720ef oven goes off if it turned up over 140 deg c also the grill in the top oven does not get red hot


Is the cooling fan running in the oven? Does it also continue to run when the oven controls are turned off to let the oven cool down?
There are ventilation grills below each door on the oven. You can see these when the doors are fully open, just look under each door to see if they are clear and not blocked up.

Stoves 720ef fan oven cuts out after a while, then cools down and restarts......help


There are thermal cutouts for both ovens. When the fan oven cuts out, does the thermostat display and the oven lamps go out as well or do they stay on? Is the oven cooling fan working ok, i.e. does it run for about 10 mins after you turn all the controls off? Do you think the oven thermostat is working ok and not running too hot? If it is, Lakeland do an oven thermometer for about 5 pounds that you can check the thermostats with.
