Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My Tricity Bendix Strata SI 530 main oven does not work. The light in it also doesn't work. The top oven does though. Looking at the manual it suggests that the timer could be the problem, but there isn't one on this model. I'm not sure what I need to look at when I pull the cooker out to try and fix it. The light in the main oven doesn't come out, the manual says to slide a screwdriver behind it but that doesn't work. Any advice would be gladly appreciated!

    Thanks for your quick response. The red light indicator does come on but there is no heat in the oven. Are all of the things you have suggested inside the cooker or at the back? Is it something that someone who has little experience of cookers spot, or would it be better to pay someone to come out to look at it?

Areas to look are:
oven selector switch and thermostat
mains terminal block - where mains input is connected. these can quite often burn out.
overheat stat

    the oven light not coming on may be a red herring - maybe just the bulb
    by red light coming on i assume you mean the thermostat light.
    this points to a blown element. assuming it is a fan oven, there is a circular element round the fan hidden behind the oven back panel inside the oven.

    to check:
    remove the back panel inside the oven and the element will be exposed. a faulty element is often but not always immediately apparant - you can often see the damage.

    otherwise, pull the oven out and remove the rear panel outside. the terminals of the oven element will then be exposed. if you have a multimeter or can borrow one, check for continuity across the element but remove any connections to the element when you do this. if no multimeter. you can check by connecting mains direct to the element but be carefull!!!

    replacing the element is easy and the part not too expensive. it is usually held in by 2 - 7mm nuts on threaded posts on the element base plate.

    good luck and get back to me if you want

Hi i bought a Tricity Bendix TMC209 microwave combination oven yesterday but have no user manual. any ideas where to get one. please.


Tri City Bendix is now part of Electrolux. They do not have manuals on line for this product as yet but you should be able to request one using this link:
http://www.electrolux.co.uk/Support/Manuals/?modeld=TMC209

It does seem odd that this Combi Microwave unit has been in the market since Nov 2009 and there still are not any downloadable manuals on-line.

Main oven won't work


On ours you have to use the the timer controls; press the button with a hand symbol and the one next to it with a "-" symbol at the same time. Try a combination of the buttons on yours if this doesn't work. Weird, and took me months to figure!

Cooker


HI THERE SKI IS THE GLASS DOOR PANEL THE INSIDE DOOR GLASS OR THE OUTER DOOR GLASS PANEL AND IS IT THE MAIN OR TOP OVEN.

THE GLASS PANELS INTERNALLY ARE HEAT BONDED IN THE FACTORY AND CANNOT BE REPAIRED YOU WILL NEED A NEW DOOR GLASS.
IF INTERNAL ONE COME AWAY THEN U WILL HAVE TO HAVE A COMPLETE INNER PANEL.
