Hi I have a stoves 720EF oven and grill, and the light bulbs need replacing. the instructions are not clear enough! It says to grasp the back edge of the light cover and move forward. There aren't any diagrams. have tried sliding the light cover forward, but it won't budge. Is this the correct way to change the bulb? If so is the anything that can be done to loosen the cover without damaging it?

As you have found out the covers are made of glass and can get very hot, so don't attempt this if the oven has been on for even a little while. You may not have noticed it but in the centre of the edge of the glass cover facing you when you look in the oven, there is a small recess in the glass adjacent to the oven wall. It is probably covered up by grease etc. It is in the centre about 1cm long and about 3mm deep. You will need a screwdriver ( an old blunt one is best so there is no sharp edges) that just fits into the recess length wise and then twist it. This should start to prise the cover away from the oven wall and then you can get your fingers behind it to pull it away. Note the cut out on the edge of the glas when refitting. This is to allow for the lamp holder. When you put it back, as long as the recess is towards the font of the oven, you should be ok.

Hi Guys I have a Stoves 720EF Double Oven and Grill. Whilst halfway through cooking some sausages on the grill this evening, the grill suddenly stopped working (plus the LED for the grill knob showing...


If the element and the indicator light both stopped working this suggests a problem with the power supply for the grill control. Either the grill control has no power going to it or it is faulty and requires replacement. If you are not sure what you are doing you'd better get a tech. to look at it, it can be fairly complicated for the untrained person.

Can't get the light out to replace it?


You have to use a blunt bladed screwdriver to prize the edge of the glass cover away from the oven side. You should see a small cutout in the middle of the edge of the glass that is facing you, to put the screwdriver in. When replacing the glass cover, there is depression in the glass to allow for the bulb. Ensure you put the lense back the correct way.

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?


1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

The bulbs are gone in my main fan oven.How do I remove the bulbs to replace them and where do I buy them? STOVES 720EF.


The lenses have to be removed to gain access to the bulbs. If you look carefully at the lense, the edge immediately in front of you will have a small lip that you can get a screwdriver blade under. do so and twist the blade carefully and the lense should just spring clear. Note that the lenses have cut outs on them to ensure clearance on the bulb, so replace them round the right way.
Oven bulbs are all the same quality, so as long as you buy an oven bulb and it is the same physical size and fitting (BC or SES), you should be ok.

Need to replace grille lamps


When you look at the glass lamp covers (lenses), you will see a little raised section either at the front or back of the lense, depending how the lense was replaced previously. You need to put the largest screwdriver blade you can under the lip and turn it slightly. The cover should move and then ease the screwdriver round the lense until the lense comes clear.
Note. Cooking gunge may may this action difficult as it will cause the lense to stick and also when you replace the lense, you will see on the inside of it there is a moulding cut away to clear the bulb. Make sure when the lense is replaced, the recess is positioned so that it clears the bulb. Whilst you have the lenses out, use the Lakeland brush on oven cleaner to give them a good clean. The end result makes a difference!

My stoves 720ef oven goes off if it turned up over 140 deg c also the grill in the top oven does not get red hot


Is the cooling fan running in the oven? Does it also continue to run when the oven controls are turned off to let the oven cool down?
There are ventilation grills below each door on the oven. You can see these when the doors are fully open, just look under each door to see if they are clear and not blocked up.

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.
