Both the top and bottom oven will only work if a time (any time) has been set on the clock. Setting the time operates a contact to switch the power through. The only exception is the grill. This will work even if the time has not been set. So if the oven controls/lights and heating work, to me it means that the clock/timer is half working and the only thing that isn't is the display.
I haven't had the clock/timer to bits but a fellow blogger has said that in some timers there is an electrolytic capacitor that controls the display. When this fails as they are renowned for doing, the dispaly mal functions. If there is one then Maplin have some - VHR41W/43W and DT64U depending on value etc. Let us know how you get on.
If you need a new clock/timer they are around £80 from espares.

It looks like the clock has failed. Try leaving the power off for at least 10 mins, turn it back on at the main switch and then try it. If it still doesn't work Espares can get you a new one. Incidentally, if there is power to the oven, the grill will work even if the clock is not set.

No power to the double oven but the hob still works


The double oven will only work if a time is set on the clock. Any time will do, you just have to set a time. The grill/top oven is independent of the clock. If the clock is faulty espare can sorce them for you.

Normally the 720ef is the oven, the hob is a separate unit and in my case is a STOVES 600G gas unit. Your unit may have a built on hob but the handbook for the 720ef does not detail this. In my case the hob ID is on the lower right hand side of the unit.
I think you will find that the elements may have failed but you will need to identify the hob to ensure correct replacements. Normally the element rating is on the base of the element. The handbook will tell you how to take the thing to pieces. It is possible that the hob element controls have failed but unlikely for all three or it may be a combination of both parts. I think you may have to contact an electrician to test everything to sort this out.

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.

MY STOVES COOKER'S OVEN AND GRILL HAS STOPPED WORKING?THE HOB IS WORKING FINE.


The hob is normally totally independent of the oven. What is actually working or not working on the oven? i.e. does the grill still work, is the clock OK and can you set it, or is everything totally dead?

Grill works, but both ovens do not work.


Looking at the circuit diagram, it appears that there is a problem with the programmer. There is a contact that operates in it to provide power to both top and bottom ovens. The feed for the grill is prior to this contact, which explains why this is still working. Is the clock/programmmer set correctly? In some ovens, if the clock is not set then the ovens do not work. You should be able to hear the realy operating when the clock is set. If you need a copy of the handbook then if you supply an email address, I will send you a copy.

I have replaced a Kelvinator hob with a ceramic hob. It works but the owen is not working. What is the problem?


There are possibly a number of options. It could be that in wiring the hob in you have disturbed the wiring for the oven. Normally the oven works off the main oven control switch on the panel and the hob could be wired into something else.
Is the oven totally dead no power at all for everything, or is the clock running but the oven will not switch on?
