Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Oven comes on of it's own accord following power failure

Hi We bought a Stoves Genus in Feb 2007. We have about 4/5 power cuts per year and to date, the oven has done as expected, the display panel flashes and we need to reset. Last week, we had a power failure and when we got home, we could smell burning. The smell was coming from the oven. The display panel was completely off, but the oven had obviously been on and was very hot. Turning the oven on from the mains wall switch (controls oven and hobs) we got an error message F3 and so we turned it off. We've talked to Stoves and they're friendly and coming to take a look, but they seem unconcerned that the oven could switch itself on following power failure. The display panel is now obviously damaged and we have the mains switch permanently off as when we turn it on for the hobs, the oven is coming on too even though there are no lights on and it's clearly heating very fast. Have you seen this before? Do you think we are over reacting if we request a replacement oven? Many thanks for your help.

I have a Stoves double oven and after a power cut the clock has stopped working and the main oven is not working either. the clock is completely off. the small top oven is still working though. what can...


The clock controls the ovens. In other words, directly you set any time on the clock, a contact operates within it to provide power to the ovens. (Normally the grill remains operational). You may need a new clock/timer. Before you do so, try switching the power off at the main isolating switch and leaving it off for a few mins, then switching it back on, to try to get the clock to operate. You may need to do this a few times.
Normally Stoves stick a label identifying the model on the left hand edge of the lower oven. You see this when you lower the main oven door. it will probably start with a 05 and be 9 digits long. With this number you can identify the oven and obtain parts.

The clock is on auto because of power cut, you need to reset it to manual to enable the oven to work as normal. Refer to your user instructions.

Main oven does not heat up


When you turn the main oven on, does the oven fan switch on?
When you turn the main oven on does the cooling fan come on?
Does the dial illuminate when the oven is turned on?
Does the oven thermostat neon come on the the oven is switched on?
Have you had a power failure recently and have not set the clock?
Are you sure that the clock/timer is NOT set and in manual mode?

A (automatic cooking)remains in the digital reader which means that the electric oven/grill and fan oven won't work. It will not clear from the box.


What happens when you turn the power off to the whole oven, leave it off for a few mins and then reapply? If the automatic is still set it could be the clock is faulty.
Have you tried resetting the clock as per the handbook?

STOVES fan oven - inlet fan on regardless HOB GRILL or OVEN


It is correct. The exhaust fan comes on to exhaust any heat.
The oven fan is for more even baking.

As a US consumer, I am not very familiar with Genus ovens, but I think they are manufactured by Glen Dimplex. Their website is www.gdha.com or try their phone at 0871 222 2502. They may be able to supply you with additional info for your oven. Hope this helps.
