Only timer button works

My mother was watching the kids, she stated that she could not turn off the oven so she pushed all the bottoms. (thanks mom). Now nothing works on the stove, my husband checked the fuse and the timer button came on. Nothing else works! Any ideas?

Oven , light and fan not working new element fitted 2months


Sometimes the timer display fades but still working in background, if all dead now then probably means you need new timer as ovens shouldn't work if clocks not set to manual mode.
Try turning oven on then messing with buttons, usually the 2 left buttons and one far right should do trick.. push 2 left first, keeping them pressed push far right!

warmest regards

Bottom oven not working, nothing comes on at all, though the display is flashing AUTO, and cannot change this as do not have manual. Thanks


It sounds like the oven is not working as the electronic timer is in auto. mode. It must be in maunal mode for manual oven operation. Turn the oven on. Muck around with the buttons on the timer and try all different combinations. This may take 5 minutes or more. When you do hit the manual mode the oven indicator light will come on and the oven will work.

Dont know how to light oven with pilot light


So-- your oven DOES have a pilot light?
Most ovens today, use ignitors-- not pilots--

However, if yours does have a pilot, Here is how we used to light ours back home many years ago.

We pushed in on the oven's thermostatic (Temperature control) knob.
(Note-- that knob connected directly to the main gas valve-- so by pushing in on the knob, we were by-passing the safety's---

There was a little hole in the center of the oven-- bottom pan...

We had to have a match lit, and ready to go when we pushed in on the knob--

We inserted the burning (Wooden) match into the hole, and 'WHOOSH'!-- the pilot lit with a rush of gas and air-- It used to scare us kids!-- But Mom was brave!

I hope this helps--
But if you need more help, let us know--

I have an old whilpool kitchen range and I moved and the timer buttons got turned. How to set the timer buttons to get the stove burners and oven to work, lost the manual.


if you have a clock where the hands go around and smaller start and stop clocks, here's what to do. set the clock to current time, push in the stop button and turn it until it stays in, then push in the start button and turn it until it pops out. try this.

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.

Just brought a bosch oven and there no life in the bottom oven


If it has a timer, then make sure it is set manual and not auto, or the oven will not work.
Try pressing 2 buttons at the left of timer and one button on right of timer to set it to manual, if it does not work this way, then try another combination of buttons.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

MAJIC CHEF DOUBLE OVEN NOT WORKING


I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.

Wall Oven won't work


I tried randomly pushing 2 buttons at a time, and when I pushed "Timer Off/On" and "Cancel" together it unlocked and is now working fine. The following day it beeped a lot for an hour or so (must have been catching up on previous pushes) but now is back to normal.
