Question about Stoves 720EF Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Hi, my Stoves 720EF is 16 years old. We have had no problems until today when we noticed that the main oven was not heating up. The light and fan come on, but no heat. The timer is not set. We have switched the device on and off again, but no change. Any views? Peter Sharp

ISOLATE MAINS POWER BEFORE WORKING ON ANY APPLIANCE
It sound like an element problem, but, you need to investigate, before we can go ahead to define the exact problem, the varistate control is working because the fan operates.
Remove the ovens, remove the rear and may have to remove the top, or sides, remove the bottm fan, you should be able to vue the element, look for Black Grey burnt blow out, not carbon or food spots, if you see or feel a rough spot on the element, it probabily is blown. Replace heating element. Seach in whitegoods.co.uk for part, you will need model and serial numbers.
Hope this has been helpful

    Thanks John. I don't think I want to take the whole appliance apart if I can avoid it. I did hear that you can access the element through a removable panel at the back of the oven on the 720EF. Do you think that is possible?

    Yes some are able to remove the element after removing the back but this depends on the shape of the element you may be able to unscrew but not remove without removing the fan, models vari.
    Give it a try.

Just moved, can not get stoves double oven to work light and fan comes on both ovens but no heat


On the main oven, does the circulating fan at the back of the oven start to rotate when you switch it on and does the fan oven neon illuminate as well.
For the top oven, the heating element is not very big so the oven takes a long time to warm up. Does the top oven neon illuminate when you switch this on as well?

Main oven not heating up , fan running ,temp light on but no heat


I suspect that the oven element has failed, to check this, remove cover at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the round oven element, it should feel hot after turning oven on to heat, if it is cold, replace it.

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.

Hi. I think I've had a power cut and my Stoves oven (about 10 years old) Is not working. The clock is flashing and the main oven won't switch on. I'm sure this has happened before but can't...


The clock is on auto because of power cut, you need to reset it to manual to enable the oven to work as normal. Refer to your user instructions.

Bottom oven is not working even though the top one is 720EF model


When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
I hope this helps.

Grill trips my electrics on Stoves 720EF


I had problems with tripping and it was a faulty RCB on the consumer unit. But it wasn't just one appliance causing the problem.
Have you isolated it to the top or bottom oven. If it is the main oven, then it could be anything associated with the operation of that component, i.e. the oven control knob,the oven thermostat, the element, the element fan, the overheat thermostat all could have insulation that is breaking down that could cause this problem.
Before you go and buy anything and if you have the time and patience and confident enough and know what you are doing, I would remove the oven from the cupboard, take off the top and back covers, note the wiring for the element, take the leads off the element and run the oven with the element disconnected and see what happens. That should prove whether it is the element or anything else.
BE CAREFUL.

When you turn the main oven on, does the oven fan switch on?
When you turn the main oven on does the cooling fan come on?
Does the dial illuminate when the oven is turned on?
Does the oven thermostat neon come on the the oven is switched on?
Have you had a power failure recently and have not set the clock?
Are you sure that the clock/timer is NOT set and in manual mode?

Stoves 720EF - main fan not working


When you say the main fan, do you mean the background cooling fan or do you mean the circulating fan in the bottom oven?
Do you have the handbook for this oven as the wiring diagrams are included in it. If you haven't, you can take a copy from my BT Digital Vault - all I need is an email address to register you.
Looking at the diagram, the power for the cooling fan comes via the timer board. If, as you say, the fan doesn't work at all, the timer board could have gone faulty.
