Rosieres 4040DB cooker - Problem with oven doors

I have a Rosieres 4040 DB freestanding cooker which is approx 12 years old. The oven doors don't close as snugly as they should especially the right hand side oven door which has the catalytic enamel insert and because of this the laminate of the kitchen base unit door next to it has been affected by this. The door hinges were replaced a couple of years ago. I have no complaints on the performance of this cooker and it is in excellent condition however I am replacing my kitchen units and worktops and would like to know if there anything you can suggest which perhaps might rectify this. I am really loathe to replace it.

    I too have a Rosieres 4040DB cooker and have the same problem. I was hoping that new oven seal and hinges might fix it. I'm concerned that you have already replaced the door hinges and the problem is still ac curing. Has anybody found a solution as yet? Would appreciate if you could post a solutions.

    my father in law cured the problem with the use of a metal kebab skewer!!. He bent the skewer into shape so that it fits onto the door top, and latches over the handle to lock the door shut... placing a cork on the point to protect yourself...yes it may look a bit heath robinson, but works perfectly, we have one on each door and can send over a pic if required....

I just got a Rosieres F200T oven for free but don't know what the degree knob means since it is numbered 1-9 and not the actual temps that I am looking for. I was searching online to see if anywhere...

Hello, Timcampbell82 -

I have tried to find a user's manual for a Rosieres F200T oven for you. I suspect the user's manual states what temperature each of the numbers for the degree knob represent.

So far, I have not found a manual online for you. I did find an online forum in French, with mention of a manual for the oven model, but the messages date from 2008:

You may wish to locate a business in your area which performs repairs for Rosieres ovens and ask if they can find a manual you can purchase for your model oven. Or, perhaps one of the repair technicians can tell you what temperature each number represents.

Best wishes.

Would just drop in and talk to some of the shop owners and find one that has contacts to dealers in France and England, most qualified service people can repair if they can get parts.
