SOURCE: Oven cuts out after about 15 minutes

most common fault is the cooling fan is failing to come on, whreas the fan will be okay ( check windings with ohmn meter ) it will normally have a ceramic 10k resitor in series with the live which goes open circiut

Is it true that if you use moth balls with the fuel in my kerosene heater it burns cleaner & there wont be any build up on the wick? I get alot of soot build up on the wick of my kerosene heater &...


I can't answer about moth balls cleaning the wick but off the top of my head I would not try it as I do not know just what gases your unit would give off. I use kerosene heaters and find that after about 5 tanks of fuel I put on a pair of household rubber gloves, remove the chimney and turn the wick all the way up. Then I roll the wick between my fingers and get the hard carbon off. Once I have the wick clean I use the shop vac to vacuum it all up. I have found that by doing this my wick is never dirty, I do not get any smoke and the wicks last more than 20 years. Probably a better idea than moth balls. Let me know how you make out.

Warmer lights up but not getting hot - Rangemaster Toledo XT


Hi Sally

I havd exactly the same problem. I contacted Rangemaster/Aga support line (0845 603 5312 if in warranty, 0870 789 5107 if not) and they told me the heating element was shot.

My cooker is 2 1/2 years old, so out of warranty, but they were good enough to send me a new cooker top (top left hand side only of course) free of charge!!!, I just have to get it fitted.

You have to replace the whole left hand side of the cooker top too - the burner that the wok goes on!

Good luck

Beckett burner; I notice small particles of soot under stack vent


The soot can be caused by a number of reasons, if it was recently cleaned, I would wonder if the service tech just left a little mess behind. If you are reasonablely sure that is not the case, one cause could be a faulty pump. Inside the fuel pump is a pressure regulating valve, that is responisible for pump pressure and cut off. If the valve is failing, and not giving proper cut off, then a small amount of oil will drip into the chamber (called "after drip") and upon start up this oil burns incompletely causing a soot build up. A delay valve often masks the problem by providing the positive shut off electronically. Another problem/cause could be impoper adj. of the burner during the tune-up. On a final note, with equipment that old, it would be a good idea to start looking into a newer, more efficient system.

I AM NOT AN ELECTRICIAN ! But i have had the same problem of the oven and the back right ring not working and have found the cause of this. For some reason there is a thermal fuse running inline on a live wire inside the cooker if you feel competent yourself in replacing this fuse you will save a good deal of money on call out fees, here is how to do it. SAFETY is the crucial, First of all isolate the power source to the cooker, pull out cooker so you can get access to the back of the cooker, remove the 9 screws ( i think there is 9) to remove the back plate from the cooker, this is quite heavy because there is a small block of concrete fastened to the bottom left hand side of the back plate, looking at the inside of the cooker on the right hand side you will see a white wire which has been secured via a small screwed clip, this wire has a transparent sleeve covering the thermal fuse, remove the sleeve by sliding it up or down the wire, check the fuse by with a meter just to be sure, if it is blown cut the fuse out. replace fuse the same way it was fitted. replace the sleeve and fit the back on the cooker SAFETY FIRST switch on power and try oven and back ring, mine works fine. like i said at the start i am not an electrician, but i can not understand why there is a thermal fuse running inline to the oven which is linked the back right hob. all the best folks Hobbo from Chess.
