Question about Stoves 720EF Electric Double Oven
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.
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

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!
