Question about Stoves 900DFa Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Oven heats up then cuts out, no light etc then comes back tolife after 5/10 mins.

Saw you comment about the in line resistor, wondered oif you might know where I might get a new one and how do I fix it? Is it possible that the thermostat is faulty?
Thanks for your time
Peter

Check that the cooling fan is working by feeling for air flow between the front panel and the top of the oven door. If air flow not present suspect the cooling fan or the inline resistor (could be open circuit)

    I had this problem. If the cooling fan at the back top right is not running can hear/feel at fron as stated above. Then the top overheats and the overheat trips the shut the entire oven down - it will reset when cooled down - maybe an hour later - (remember to reset the clock ). The fan in may case was getting no power because the white ceramic in line resistor - rated 470ohm had burnt out internally. There is also a PCB board which controls the fan running which is mounted middle left at the back. The fan itself also could be faulty. Either way all easy fixes accessible by taking off back panel if you know your electical safety- No live working.

Sounds like it could be the thermal cut out switch - I am having a similar problem. The switch is about £10 delivered from the Stoves spares dept. I can't work out how to open the top to change the switch though! Have you managed to solve the problem and can you add anything re opening the top?!

    More likely a fan problem. Thermal switch is doing its job - operates after oven heats for about 20 mins because top has got too hot. See above

I'm wondering if my Jenn-Air Model JER8885QCS needs a new probe or not. It's a...


As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too hot or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity, disconnect the wires and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful..

Kenmore electric range model 790 oven stopped functioning, both broiler and bake. however, oven light still comes on.


I believe there is a thermal fuse (also called a TCO or Thermal Cut-Out) located either on the back of the oven, or between the top of the oven and the cooktop that has opened up. Did this happen after running a self-clean cycle?

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites


Hi, this sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Stoves 900DFa oven cuts out


Hi.

The most probable cause is failure in your panel cooling fan 9not the one inside your oven)

If the appliance switches on again after 15 - 20 minutes then the fault is most likely here.

Unfortunately as you have gas the you will need a Gas Safe Certified engineer to repair

Oven section not working


beaver, the F5-E5 is the code for self clean temp not achieved after 30 minutes. This makes sense since you are having trouble pre-heating your oven on regular bake. I believe your ignitor is not drawing enough amps to open the gas valve all the way. Sometimes these can be erratic, work sometimes, sometimes won't. Your part number for the oven ignitor is 9782065.
