you should find the model number between the bottom of the griller door & the liner .. silly place really to get at... as you cannot remove the grill door as you can the oven door.
we have just rebuilt one from two we acquired ... best oven ever .... there will be a few different models as these were produced & cosmetically changed over a 20 yrs period. Ours now looks like a brand new oven as they are REAL baked enamel ... you can clean with caustic based product without any harm.
I am searching for a manual if anyone has one mine is 67/wdl.v.81.fo I presume the 81 in the number denotes 1981 manufacture.
Don't be fooled if you find the oven does not heat at some stage & everything else works ... this is usually after a cleaning & the auto on & off timer has been activated ...just a matter of setting back to manual mode.
Hope this helps although you have probably solved by now having posted in April 11.
Anyone have a manual for this model would be appreciated .
open each hinge about 1/3 of the way open or until it reaches the point that it will stay open, align the door slots with the hinges and lower the door down onto the hinges. Door should operate properly now.
In my experience, it is normal to leave the the door open when grilling, otherwise it is liable to cause the bakelite handle of the grilling pan to get very hot, and possibly melt or catch fire, and make it to hot to hold the handle.

When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour. Multifunction Oven Function Selections
2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting. 3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled. 4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function. 5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.
Advanced Oven Features Cavity Cooling The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off. Triple Reflective Door Glazing Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.
Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional) Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.
Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional) The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.
Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.
To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.
Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.
Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.
Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.
Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.
Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.
Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.
Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.
This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.
Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.
Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.
Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.
Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.
As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.
i suspect you took the door off without locking the hinges you will have to put the hinges in the lock position before putting back. lay door on a blanket with hinges upwards. force the hinges back and bring the locking arm up to lock the hinges. this requires considerable strength
Yeah I was stumped with this for a short time as it isnt imediately obvious.
The bottom of the two brackets has a flip up catch, place these in the upright position and with some force hook the upper bracket into these catches (please ensure you keep your face and hands away from the direction of the spring)
Once you have the two brackets held open offer up the door at exactly 45 degrees (notice the notch on the underside of both lower brackets) locate this notch on the door hinge hole studs.
Once this is done and your certain it is in the correct postion lower the door from 45 degrees to 90 degrees, put some pressure on the door slightly past 90 degrees and carefully fold down the flip up catches that are holding the upper brackets.
it is locked the leaver has become detached from the door latch and even though the leaver moves the lock part doesn't have you tried it lately push in on the door and try to move the leaver if that doesn't work get a wire coat hanger make a Small hook and from the left hand side see if you can snag the hook and pull it over ive done that before theopen end of the hook should point up start just abve the door gasket about halfway over well i cant reamber which way the latch moves but im sure you can figure it out push slighty in on the door after you hook the latch but try to open it fist some have asensor that wont let the oven door open till its cool enough to be safe let me know
