De dietrich pyroletic fan oven door locked.

My oven is 8 years old and after using a pyroletic cleaning cycle the door has locked and will not open. I even tried running another shorter cycle to see if it would release it but unfortunately not. There is still power to the oven but I can't open the door. Any suggestions, I have not had any problems with the oven before this.
Thanks

SOURCE: Oven Light does not turn off

The problem is due to a faulty door switch, this is part of the door lock mechanism. The reason is that the oven thinks the door is open , this puts on the light and stops some of the oven functions ie the fan the fan element and probably the bottom element.
The answer is to fit a new door lock mechanism.

SOURCE: De Dietrich Oven - Clock tripping back to 00:00 means I cant turn on my oven!

its a fix more than a solution but you can bypass the clock thus allowing the oven to operate again
unplug at the mains and remove the oven from the housing remove the two fastening screws from the metal lid on the top of the oven ,and remove the lid
you will see the timer back panel with 3 wires coming to it, 2 are black (switching line) and 1 is red (Live feed to timer )
If you pull the connectors from the 2 black wires from the timer board and connect the ends together using a connector block, the timer switch becomes inactive and allows the oven functions to operate again.
you will have no timer functions but its a cheap fix and who uses the timer any way
good luck Andy B
ps if anyone has a set of operating manuals for ths oven i would be glad of a copy

SOURCE: De Dietrich oven not working!

I suspect that it is the oven lock that needs replacing. I bought a De Deitrich oven (pyroclean) in Sept 2007. The oven failed to heat in Aug 2009. The oven lock needed replacing which meant the unit had to be removed from the wall. It was replaced under guarantee but failed again in June 2010 and was replaced at a cost of €140 by enginneer. I am very dissappoined in the oven and expected to have no problems with it considering the DeDeitrich name. I would not recommend it to a friend. By the way the clock is easy to use if you follow the instructions exactly. Oven used by two careful owners only.

SOURCE: De Dietrich Oven - Clock tripping back to 00:00 means I cant turn

The part that needs replacing is the clock timer.

FIRST: ISOLATE THE CIRCUIT.

The front fascia is held on by three clips. Take off the two knobs and gently pry away the fascia fron the left, right and top centre.

The clock timer is held in by four plastic push clips at the top and bottom about 1cm in from the end. Push them in and pull the timer out.

There are now three wires on push clips attached at the back.

Do not take the colours for granted. On my oven just repaired the Live was Black and the Neutral was Red! The black marked 'C' is the input. The side by the trip switch is the output. The Red goes on the other side.

When the timer trips it causes the circuit between the input and output to break.

You have two options now:

Read the serial number of the timer and try and order it (expensive), swap the cables over.


Carefully run an electrical cable between the push clips on both black cables making sure you leave no exposed wire. Your timer and clock however will never work, the oven just does not care about it anymore.





Note: I am not an oven engineer, I am an electrical engineer in another field and have tested voltages and current and believe this to be safe. I have done this on my own oven.

Help! my Pyroclean De Dietrich oven is about 8 years old and the fan option has...


Before you choose to run you oven in the “Self Clean” mode be sure to read this.
After viewing many hundreds of range and oven problems there is one constant theme that comes through. “After running the self clean feature” on my oven I have this problem or that problem. Whether the oven is gas or electric does not seem to matter. The common thing is that the self cleaning feature was just used on the oven, and now it is not working, the glass broke, or you now, cannot even get the door open.

The basic idea of a self cleaning oven is to get the oven so hot that you incinerate everything that is in the oven. The heat from this process will burn up everything in the oven and sometimes things outside also. Even though the wiring and controls are built to withstand high heat, taking the oven to such high temperatures pushes everything to the limit. If something is not insulated perfectly or has shifted a bit then the heat causes it to fail. Repeated heating also wears the insulation out and causes it to break down. For this reason the self cleaning features should be used sparingly.

Manufacturers want to please the customer so even though they know that this can create problems they also know that this feature sells more products. It is in your best interest to not even use this feature if possible.

If you have a oven that will not unlock after the cycle you have a few things you can try.

First make sure that you wait long enough before you try to open the oven. If it has not cooled completely it will not open. Do not run a clean cycle when you do not have the time to let it cool completely before you need it. Sometimes if you cycle the power to your oven off and then on again you can reset the oven and it will open. Turn off the breaker to your oven for a good minute or two before reapplying the power again.

If this fails to work then check your manual for instructions or to get a factory service number. They should be able to give you the information you need to open your oven.

How do I fit the oven handle back on?


many have done this having never seen a De Dietrich stove /oven I can only guess that you need to separate the door halves to put the screw back in place . and I would use some LOCK TITE on it

De dietrich range cooker very noisy when oven on?


Have you checked the exhaust fans within the oven? These can make a lot of noise if something has come lose. They should be located at the top of your oven or on the back. I would check that.
Good luck

How do i unlock a de dietrich oven?


In order to unlock the oven you need to perform the following:
Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.
