My oven keeps turning itself off

I have a De dietrich oven, and it keeps turning itself off at random times E.g in the middle of cooking a roast dinner! somedays it works with no problems other days it wont work at all. I think the timer may have something to do with it as when the problem occurs the timer returns back to 0.00. Hope you can help.

Re: My oven keeps turning itself off

The oven may be trying to protect itself because of a faulty device that says "I'm too hot". As electric clothes dryers have a thermal high temp limit switch to protect them, look for this device (may be 1 inch round with 2 wires connected) and replace it

The Problem with De Dietrich ovens is that they need the power switch on all the time otherwise the over will switch off during cooking. Something to do with the electronic need power.

Unlock control panel

Function switch must be in the "O" position
Press the " /\ " button for a few seconds until it beeps.
Then use the +/- buttons to set time.
Try powering off and switching back on again if that doesn't work.
May vary between models but De Deitrich do free manuals downloads. Just google it

I have just purchased a Double Oven model D.O.D 788x5 very happy with it except it is very noisy whilst cooking it sounds like a fan is this normal I purchased this from John Lewis M.K. I feel that the...

This is quite normal.

Most ovens are fan assisted these days it gives more even temperature distribution and faster cooking times.

You will probably get used to the noise fairly quickly.

How to get the heating element out of the large oven in a De Dietrich DOD348*

If you mean the element at the back (not the bottom one), inside the oven undo a screw at the back to reveal the element, then undo one more screw attaching the element. THEN, totally disassemble the oven, removing all the cladding, taking off the top oven and controls, detaching lots of wires to be able to do this, in order to finally gain access to the 2 little nuts securing the element behind the oven. Then if you're not sufficiently dismayed by De Dietrich's design skills, email their customer service to be given the wrong part recommendation at twice the price of an independent supplier. Finally, buy part from independent supplier, spend several hours dismantling and rebuilding oven. Then it will work. But maybe don't ever buy De Dietrich (Brandt) again!

De Dietrich Oven - Clock tripping back to 00:00 means I cant turn on my oven!

its a fix more than a solution but you can bypass the clock thus allowing the oven to operate again
unplug at the mains and remove the oven from the housing remove the two fastening screws from the metal lid on the top of the oven ,and remove the lid
you will see the timer back panel with 3 wires coming to it, 2 are black (switching line) and 1 is red (Live feed to timer )
If you pull the connectors from the 2 black wires from the timer board and connect the ends together using a connector block, the timer switch becomes inactive and allows the oven functions to operate again.
you will have no timer functions but its a cheap fix and who uses the timer any way
good luck Andy B
ps if anyone has a set of operating manuals for ths oven i would be glad of a copy
