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

    The bottom oven does not light when swithed on. How should it operate it so as to be able to bake.

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!

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.

We've got quite an old type of washing machine: a Hoover A2580 - S: It had been running well from 1991 to last summer, when it slowed down, so the condensator had to be replaced. It worked well for a year,...


It sounds like your diagnosis is correct. A failed bearing will cause the symptoms you describe. The bearing can be replaced but is a pretty big job. With the washing machine being almost 10 years old I would recommend looking around for a new one. The bearing replacement will usually run over 1/2 the cost of a new machine.

I have a 4 years old GE top loading washer - model number 2090D... it was fine till last night that it stop at the last ''drain and spin'' cycle... and I smell a burn smell too when I notice the washer...

  It may be possiblr by the way you explained the symptoms, that the tomer may have shorted out .That would be the most likely problem of the burning smell,and the case of no water entering the tub .

How old is the washer? Some washers you can pop the top on if so check your power cord as it enters the washer. There may be a loose or burnt wire at the terminal block. Some washers won't start if the lid switch isn't making. Check that also.
