Unplug or disengage power to machine,remove knob by pulling steadily towards you,practice first on a functional knob or switch to gauge the "feel" of removal and reinstallation.. if possible screws can be reinstalled by grasping the shaft of switch w/needlenose pliers to help line up screw holes if working from front.if cant line up holes that way,remove rear panel to line up screws by grasping switch by hand from behind console panel.knob must be removed to reinstall the screws

Why wont the oven control knob turn


In a few instances like this, I found that the knob was forced on in the wrong place. Pull it off, and look at it, and slip it back on in the right place. Then try it again, let me know it this worked for you.

The glass panel behind the control knobs has shattered can I replace this model is stoves 720ef


The best bet is STOVES for a replacement - if they have one. It is relatively straightforward to replace. With all the buttons and knobs removed, there should be two screws underneath the panel , i.e. pointing upwards at either end of the panel,. The panel will also have two lugs along the top edge that locate into the top off the oven. The panels lugs should be first located into the oven before the screws are inserted. It may be a bit of a struggle but can be done.

How do I fit a new switch to the grill of my Soves electroc oven model no. 059040414 Type 720EF? Have you a manual?


First, a handbook is available, but I will need an email address to send it to you.
TURN THE POWER OFF.
To replace the switch, you have to take the whole oven out of its kitchen furniture housing and then take the top off. ) It is held in place by normal wood screwes) All the knobs on the front panel are pull off/push on and you have to remove them. Once you have the knobs off you have to remove the glass control knob panel. On the lower edge of it at either end you will see two cross head screws going upwards. Remove these. Now the only thing holding this in place are I think three lugs on the top of the glass panel that go up and in to the top of the cooker. With a bit of fiddling, the panel should now come off, leaving you free to access the switch for replacement.
I think you will find that the thermostat pipe will link into the top back of the top oven so this has to be very carefully replaced as well, which additionally may require the back of the oven to be unscrewed.
Best of luck!

Timer shows F30


I had the same F30 error problem but fixed it. On my professional series Frigidaire, there are 2 resettable red button locations. I discovered that only one is in the rear of the oven. After going to the breaker box and shutting off the power, pull out the stove enough to work, unscrew the rear screws (I didn't unscrew all of them, just enough to work back there). The small red button is on a small black round piece with two purple wires feeding to it. That was not my problem. Mine was the other red button behind the control panel. Pull off all 4 knobs, unscrew by hand the large black rings that are underneath the knobs, pull out the whole panel. Look back and right (below where the right knobs were located) to find the 2nd red small button. Push to reset. Check this one first since it is easier to do.

Doesn't get as hot as it should


the range has two thermostats one for each oven located under the oven knobs. put a meat thermometer in the oven and adjust the thermostat screw with a small flat screwdriver untill the oven turns off at the correct knob temp.
registered on the thermometer.
then adjust the knob screw on the back of the knob to match that temp setting.
clockwise is hotter counterclockwise is cooler

Element wires fell behind oven


I just had the same problem with our Electrolux wall oven. I don't expect you are still having problems 3 years later, but thought I would post for the benefit of anyone else with this issue.

Firstly, turn your power off. I then had to unscrew two screws on each side of the oven door which allowed the oven shell to come forward. You should then see the power cord which you can remove from the powerpoint. If your oven is hard-wired in, then I would definitely call an electrician.

Once I removed the oven, I placed it on the floor and unscrewed a few screws that held the top and back casing on. After removing the casing, you can see the wiring and you just need to push the fallen wire back through.

Before you put the casing back on, you could replace your element just in case the wire falls through again.
