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

1 Answer

How do you open the top of a 900DFa?

I need to replace the thermal cut out switch, as the oven is randomly turning off and on. Does anyone know how to raise the cooking surface/hob part of the range cooker? I have released the fascia, so the front of the hob now lifts up a little, but the back seems securely fixed with no signs of screws etc that will release it. Very grateful if anyone can post a reply.

    Many thanks for the prompt reply, no securing screws there but that did allow a little more leeway to get access.

Take off side panels and i think you will find that is where the securing screws are

    I haev had this problem. The oven is badly designed as far as i can see. The side panels are attached with 2 screws front and back. However even with these removed it is difficult to get to the electrical control knobs at the front. It looks like you have to take off the top panel to do this - which is held on by screws under each gas burner. These seem to strip/break easily - so i gave p trying to get it off. In theory the gas jets and controls are then left behind . Shame Stoves did not design it with a front removal panel so you could get at the electric knobs fron the front!

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?

While cooking with my may tag gas oven it will completely turn off


Did the oven get extremely hot? If so a thermal switch probably opened causing shut down. Some of these will reset when the temp drops to a normal range. Other thermal switches fail and must be replaced for repair. You may still have another problem of oven temp run away possibly caused by the electronic controller or maybe the oven temp probe.

Overheating


The top cooling fan is not working which cools the electrics above the oven and the control panel at the front. It could be the fan is faulty , the pcb which controls it is faulty - inside back panel on right. There is also a resistor on the power to the fan which burns out. All easy do it yourself fixes if you are electrical competent.

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

Pull the range, remove the back cover and locate the thermal switch and the oven TOD. Check both parts for continuity. Replace any of them if it's open.

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


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?!
