I confirm that you should get an oven thermometer as I did as my 720 wasn't behaving itself. Lakeland do one that works well and is not to expensive. I found that the fan oven was working ok but the top oven was way out, i.e. setting 160 on the dial produced 140 in the oven. The thermostat sensors for both ovens are located at the rear of each oven at the top right. They should be clear of all congealed fat etc and should be bright and silver in colour. If they are dirty this may cause them not to work correctly. Lakeland again do an oven cleaner that you paint on with a brush. It may take more than one go but it cetainly removes all the rubbish and may well restore the thermostat to near normal operation. When cleaning the sensors be careful of the thin wire from them as if this is damaged you will have to have a complete new thermostat.
(The oven cleaner works on everything inside the oven including the stay clean lining).
As a final thought is the cooling fan running when the oven fan is on as this may cause the oven to overheat?
Best of luck.

When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.
If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.
A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:
-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.
The oven works now! : )

No the burner have no ingiter ither piezo or electric just the gill and oven as you mention.
Burners need external light however they do have thermocouple protection when the fire goes out for safety.

Believe it or not, the clock has to be set before the oven will light.
To set the clock, instead of using function names for buttons, we'll just call them buttons 1 through 6 going from left to right.
Push buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. You're now in clock setting mode. Push buttons 5 and 6 to make the clock go minus and plus.
