I have a stoves 700dfdoa and I think the spring on the switch for the grill/top oven has either gone or something's been removed. Do I need to remove the hob to access the switch? If so how?

SOURCE: Oven and stove top not getting hot.

The most probable cause is that the heating elements are getting 110V instead of 220V. Check the voltage to the heating elements.

SOURCE: The door on my Okeefe and Merritt antique stove

O'Keefe and Merritt is always a challenge to the inexperienced because, although two stoves of the same year and model can look identical, there are subtle differences in both, especially in the door spring mechanism, that make it difficult to explain without seeing the stove and/or asking you a series of questions in person. Here it goes anyway: Some models have access panels that are visible when you pull out the broiler drawer. This makes changing a spring a breeze, as long as you know which spring you need. A sample of a broken one, or and intact one always helps when buying a replacement. Other models operate on a system of hooks, cables and springs. These often require a skilled technician to come out and repar for you. Most of the time, the door has to be physically removed from the frame so that new cables (and sometimes rods) can be installed on the hinge and then the door would have to be re-installed fishing the cables through a small opening on the bottom of the stove. A spring then attaches to the cable and the hook of the spring is then attached to one of three small aligned holes on the bottom stove panel.
One constant i s that there are 2 sets of springs for each of the door panels. You are right, there are springs in the middle. And you are also right that the white panel removes from the door after you remove the truss head sheet metal screws.

The electronic clock/timer must work correctly and be in manual mode for the oven to work. It sounds as if you need to replace the electronic clock. If you do not need the clock function it is fairly easy to bypass the clock altogether and the oven will work no problem.

Model 720EF. Model No 059040415. The grill will not work. The top oven is still working but the grill light or fan will not come on at all. Stoves have told me over the phone that it could be the...


First things first. The top oven lights ONLY come on when the top oven is switched on. Operating the grill DOES NOT turn the lights on. If you wish to see what you are grilling, you have to turn the top oven control knob on to its first position as well as turning the grill on.
Secondly, the grill only works when the door is open. The grill does not work when you shut the door. When you open and shut the door, you should be able to hear the microswitch operating. It is located in the right hand side of the cooker, between the inner and outer panels - you cannot see it. I haven't seen the switch first hand but they normally come with an arm that contacts the door mechanism and the door mechanism operating, causes the arm to move, which causes a button on the switch to move and make the circuit. It has been known for the arm on the microswitch to bend with use so it no longer works correctly.
If you have checked all above and you hear the switch operating, then it could have failed. They are quite common, so if you can't get one from STOVES, try espares or someone like Maplin or RadioSpares.
The get to the microswitch you have to take the oven out of the housing and then take the right hand panel off. You should then be able to see it and check its operation.
All the best

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...


First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

How do I fit a new switch to the grill of my Soves electroc oven model no. 059040414 Type 720EF? Have you a manual?


First, a handbook is available, but I will need an email address to send it to you.
TURN THE POWER OFF.
To replace the switch, you have to take the whole oven out of its kitchen furniture housing and then take the top off. ) It is held in place by normal wood screwes) All the knobs on the front panel are pull off/push on and you have to remove them. Once you have the knobs off you have to remove the glass control knob panel. On the lower edge of it at either end you will see two cross head screws going upwards. Remove these. Now the only thing holding this in place are I think three lugs on the top of the glass panel that go up and in to the top of the cooker. With a bit of fiddling, the panel should now come off, leaving you free to access the switch for replacement.
I think you will find that the thermostat pipe will link into the top back of the top oven so this has to be very carefully replaced as well, which additionally may require the back of the oven to be unscrewed.
Best of luck!

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?


1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

I have a stoves 720EF Heritage - electric - the top grill is not working - does it have a reset button?


No, there is no reset button. However, the grill will only work when the front is down as there is a microswitch which operates to provide connectivity when it is in this position. This is to stop the grill overheating. The switch could have gone faulty.
Does the top oven work ok?
When you operate the grill there are two options, part or full. Are they both failing? Does the cooling fan switch on when either grill is operated?

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.
