Defy - Gemini Cordon Bleu oven - won't switch on


Please help if you can. Our +- 10 year old Defy oven was working fine last night ...then suddenly switched off. The warmer still works, but anything to do with the oven will not come on.

I suspect the thermostat, but when opening it up could you best describe what the thermostat looks like?

Many thanks

it could be the direct drive coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. fill it up with water and see if it will agitate, if it will NOT agitate then it is a good chance that this is the problem. 0404472.jpg

worse case scenario is the transmission is bad, but this is unlikely.

SOURCE: maytag atlantis will agitate won't spin

I had the same problem with my Atlantis a couple of months ago. It turned out to be the bearing for the tub drive pulley. When you look under the washer there are three pulleys. The one for the motor is ont he left, the drain pulley on the right and the big one in the middle for the tub. What I found is that when the bearing went bad, the tub would fill and turn for washing, but it would not turn at all for spinning. I could turn the pulley by hand but the tub refused to budge. I removed the main pulley and could see that the bearing had exploded. You can't buy just the bearing but the whole pulley kit is like $35 so I got off easy. I put the machine back together (which is tricky) but it works fine now. The pulley kit comes with complete instructions but it's really straightforward. The tricky part is that you have to pull down on the end of the drive shaft in order to get the retainer ring onto the pulley. That can be difficult if you don't have a lot of room to work or have a partner to assist. You can replace the whole thing or just the bearing and save the pulley for a rainy day if you want. I opted for the whole replacement. But I saved the old. cause ya neva know!

Why would the bottom oven of a defy gemini cordon bleu oven stop working but the top oven is fine?

The igniter is bad if it's a gas oven or the thermostat won't turn on the igniter. You can check by turnung the oven on and looking at the burner. If there is no orange glow then the igniter needs replacement.

Defy Gemini Cordon Bleu Oven

Hi, some ovens need to be reset with the timer to work manually. Set (turn) the timer (depending on the type of timer) till u hear a click (or pop of the button in a pushbutton timer). This worked for my non digital oven setting. Hope u are successful.

I bought a house with a Defy Gemini Petite Chef oven but it is not working. The oven flicker on Auto. How can I delete the Auto?

Most models won't work when on Auto. There are push buttons under the clock and one has a picture of a hand (Like a cop holding up his hand to say "Stop"). From left to right numbering the buttons 1-6, this is button 4 on your appliance. Press this button and it should go back to manual mode and allow you to use the oven.
You can download a manual for this appliance from here:

Or google " Gemini Petite Chef manual " and the first hit has the link
