Question about Belling DB3 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

Open Question

I have a Belling Platinum db3 dual fuel cooker. The main oven turns itself off if I turn the temperature to 200 degrees for longer than a few minutes, and will not stay on even that long at higher temperatures. At lower temperatures, there does not seem to be a problem. Is this a thermostat problem? Can it be fixed DIY by buying a spare part (if so, where could I get the part and/or fixing instructions), or is it a professional job? I am in the UK

    I have just inherited one of these cookers having bought a house with one in...all the dial labels have worn away and I am having to use the manual t work out the positionings of the dial for temperature...I have noticed that the fan oven turns off by itself with no idea why or for how long it will stay in this state..however it is becoming more and more frustrating...and what with xmas around te corner I cant risk it. Can you tell me how you got on in the end

SOURCE: Problem with main fan oven - electric

there is an overheat stat and this is operating and cutting out the oven. the causes are several but here are the main things to look for: oven stat is faulty causing the oven to overheat. you should check over the range to see if stat is reasonably accurate. overheat stat itself is faulty. there is another stat which turns on the casing fan. (this is the fan which is out of sight - not the fan inside the oven) if this stat is faulty and not turning on the casing fan, then the overheat stat will operate. the casing fan is faulty or jammed. lack of ventilation. see if you can narrow it down a bit and get back to me if you wish

SOURCE: Belling DB3 Main oven door falling off its hinges

The same thing is happening with my oven. I have found a web page which sells the parts and removing the door and replacing the hinge would be easy enough. The design of the door however, may mean the problem just happens again.

Above the door on the oven frame thre is a sliding retaining plate held by a screw in a slotted opening. Release this screw and slide the plate to the right (for the main oven door) then the door can be lifted out. Once the door is out the glass can be slid out for cleaning. Be careful to replace the the glass face in the correct direction to the oven. Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: Belling DB3 Control Panel

Not easy. Briefly, in addition to the screws you mention, the cooker side panels need to be removed to give access to removal of the control panel side clamps. Then the indicator lamps have to be disconnected, and timer etc. buttons have to be pulled out to allow removal of the the control panel. Then the main control unit (timer etc.) needs to be unscrewed from behind the control panel.
Replacement is reversal of above.
Good luck!

Tip

Common faults with Belling DB3 Dual Fuel Range


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the Belling fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the BELLING element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
2, If your BELLING fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your BELLING oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your BELLING oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
