Faulty timer function on Stoves 720 EF

It shows the clock but does not give the timer function as it used to. Can I open it up? How? Will I be able to get parts? etc.
Thanks.

    Yes - working fine. The only problem is that we can't seem to get into any setting mode - like to change the time or set auto switch-on etc. Thanks for trying to help. Does anyone know how to dis-mantle the button panel?

    Is the rest of the oven still working OK or not? Another poster has said the the clocks are about £100.

A solution - of sorts - but expensive.

My Stoves 720EF oven developed the same fault.
Things I tried that didnt help :
- pressing the buttons in various combinations
- switching the power off and on
- resetting the timer and the clock.
- getting hold of a copy of the manual and trying to fix it.

Finally I called up Stoves and booked a visit from a specialist service engineer, £75 +VAT for the call out. They advised that the engineer would attempt to repair it but it might need a replacement circuit board, costing a further £110 plus VAT.

"Specialist" engineer arrived on the appointed day and was straight onto swapping out the circuit board - not much scope for "attempt to repair" - so that was about £190 plus VAT to fix it. job took about 25 mins and didnt seem to need anything beyond what any electrician (or electrically-expert DIYer) could do. So if you have a regular electrician you might prefer to buy the board and get your electrician to do the job - or do it yourself, assuming that you are suitably skilled and qualified (if in doubt - dont mess with electricity...)

hope this helps

cheers

David

To take off the front button panel.
First power off the cooker, then remove the three right control knobs - they are just push on and push off. There are flats on the spindles matching contours on the knobs to ensure thay go back correctly.
Lower the top oven/grill front. Under the front button panel there are three screws going upwards. One at each end and one in the middle. Remembering how they are installed, remove them. The panel will now be loose but it is held in postion by two or three lugs which are along the top inside edge of the panel. They, from what I remember, hook into the inner panels of the cooker. I think you have to lift the lower edge of the panel towards you, to overcome the upward bend of the lugs.
The buttons for the clock are purely push fit and if you want they can be removed using a thin bladed knife.
I have to say that if you want complete access to the clock, I think you will have to take out the complete oven from the unit and take the top off, so be warned. Instructions of how the cooker is mounted are in the instruction manual.
Putting the front panel back I found to be fiddily - ensuring the lugs are located correctly, especially the one by the clock doesn't always want to work. In the end I left that one not positioned correctly, so in effect the front panel is slightly out at the left hand end.
Best of luck!

It could be that the clock is on the way out, or the buttons that control the clock have dirty contacts. espares can get you a new clock/timer. What you can do is with the oven switched off, rapidly press all the clock buttons one at a time to try and remove the dirt. Switch the oven back on and see what happens. If you need a handbook, post an email address and I will send you a pdf copy.
I have answered other posts in this section on how to use the timer, so check there if you don't have the information.

It looks like the clock has failed. Try leaving the power off for at least 10 mins, turn it back on at the main switch and then try it. If it still doesn't work Espares can get you a new one. Incidentally, if there is power to the oven, the grill will work even if the clock is not set.

Just moved address, new house has a Stoves 720 EF built in oven.Model 059040437. I can't work out how to turn on the grill or set the timer, don't understand what any of the symbols on the front left next...


I don't know if this will help. For the 720ef , this is what you need to do.
There are five buttons on the clock panel and from left to right they are:- Minute Minder, Cook time, Ready Time, Plus and Minus.
TO SET THE TIME OF DAY
Press the Cook Time button and the Ready Time button simultaneously. Use the Plus and Minus buttons to set the time.(24hr clock).
TO SELECT AN ALARM TONE.
Press the Minus button to listen to the first tone. Release it and press it again to listen to the second tone etc (3 tones)
Releasing the button after the tone has sounded will automatically set that tone.
SETTING THE MINUTE MINDER.
Press the Minuter Minder button and either the Plus or Minus buttons simultaneously to set the time.
You can cancel the timer at any time by setting it back to 00.00 by using the Minus button.
After setting, the display will revert to the time of day, but by pressing the Minute Minder button again, the display will show the remaining time.
If you want all the information, then it is best if you supply a vaild email address and this will give you access to my BT Digital Vault, where you can have a complete copy of the handbook that I have scanned in.

Rachellewis250@I have mislaid my Stoves 720 EF manual. How do I set the timer?


There are five buttons. from left to right they are Minute Minder, Cook Time, Ready Time, Plus, Minus.

To set the Minute Minder, press the button and use the Plus and Minus to set the time period. To cancel use the Minus to ge back to 00.00

How can I bypass the clock on my Stoves Heritage 720 ef oven?


I think you will find that the clock/timer is an integral part of the oven and so if it is faulty or missing, the oven will not work. Because it controls so many things, I would say it would be easier to buy a new clock.
