Hi FixYa;

My husband had inavertantly turned the oven switch, on our De Dietrich Oven, to the pyro setting and once this is done you are unable to undo it until about 3 hours later, when it has run it's course.

However with Rylee Smith's help - between us we worked out that if we turned the oven off immediately (which we had done as soon as we realised our error) and unplugged it from the mains if necessary (not in our case) and then waited for the three hour time limit to expire then, we could open the oven. This is what we did.

On the oven casing when the pyro is used - a red warning light also comes on and you can only open the oven when this has gone out.

The "Pyro" is for automatic cleaning of the oven.

The turning on of the Pyro is absolute and there is NO undoing it once it is locked in place - we contacted your firm in the hope that we could by-pass the Pyro but as we found out - with Rylee's help - it is just not possible.

I was very appreciative of having someone to talk to whilst we sorted out the problem and can't thank Rylee Smith enough for his patience in dealing with my query.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Dean

The top oven not maintaining heat why plenty of reasons depending on age could be a weak ignitor, bad temp sensor, is the oven light on if so oven stops heating after 30 seconds any oven maintaining set point temp will brown and if left long enough burn

While cooking with my may tag gas oven it will completely turn off


Did the oven get extremely hot? If so a thermal switch probably opened causing shut down. Some of these will reset when the temp drops to a normal range. Other thermal switches fail and must be replaced for repair. You may still have another problem of oven temp run away possibly caused by the electronic controller or maybe the oven temp probe.

Oven sef clean latch locked but door is open and I cannot clos it. I inadvertantly urned it to self clean and openedthe door and the latch is locked in self clean position. How do I release the latch so I...


Ok. Open the door and find the oven light switch(es) (some models had two switches). Press the switch(es) in and see if the latch goes back to the home position. If not enlist a volunteer to turn on the self clean cycle while you are holding the switch(es) in. Just after the self clean starts have them hit cancel and wait until the lock comes back to it's "home" or unlocked position.
Good luck!!
