Question about De Dietrich DOP390 Pyrolytic Electric Single Oven
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.
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.

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.

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.
