Question about Dacor ECS127 Epicure Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Faulty oven door

We have a Built-in oven and grill unit (Moffat 95 series) from Parkinson Cowan Ltd - on which the oven door won't close properly. As obviously this oven is quite old, we are wondering if it is possible for the door to be repaired or even replaced.
Are spares still available for this type of oven?
I look forward to hearing from you.

This IS SO EASY !! I have the DACOR tools, 5 minutes and you are done! It took me 8 years of frustration and I fixed it TODAY !!

Just open the door, latch the small hook that binds the two hinges together. Next try to slowly close the door until resistance. Just when you think you might break something push up another 2 inches. Now lower the door , unhook the latch to seperate the hinges (latches) nad PRESTO a snug fit !!

Are fan forced ovens meant to have hot air coming out from the top of the door? I have a built in chef fan forced wall oven

Unlikely there would be no air spilling through the door seal because it is an oven and not a watertight compartment. An oven door seal needs to be hard wearing and able to withstand high temperatures and hot grease which limits the materials used, that and the fact few domestic oven doors actually latch these days but are held closed by springs meaning the pressure against the seal is relatively light which means the door, the shut and the seal must be manufactured to a high degree of accuracy and properly adjusted.

If the amount or air leakage is excessive perhaps the door could be adjusted or the seal replaced. Try asking around to find someone with a similar oven so you can compare...

I have a Bosch wall oven in my unit but no user manual. The number on the door is bosch hbe632uau/03. Is it ok to close the door when using grill function or will the glass blow out?

if the grill section is behind the oven door then the door should be open
if there is a door for the grill section then the oven door can stay closed
to get a user manual ,go google and type in-- user manual for bosch oven model ( type in what you have) --( or leave it out if it doesn't recognize the model)
If a page is available with a pdf version you can down load it

My oven gets too hot and won't turn back down

Sounds like a problem with the oven thermostat. You will need to meter check it and see if it is closing at all. If not replace the thermostat.

Hi i cant find a parkinson cowan built in gas cooker

Used or brand new? In which country?

You won't find them new in shops as they're no longer made. But you *might* find a NOS (New, Old Stock) Alto GM60 from an online stockist, but the manufacturer's guarantee will be worthless and some spare parts will already be difficult/impossible to obtain. You'll also need to check before purchase whether it's for natural gas, lpg, butane or propane.

All late (approx. 1990 onwards) Parkinson Cowan models had appalling build quality and frequent electronic faults, so I strongly advise that you look for a current brand.

My grill won't light


Forgive me for asking this, but you have read the instructions haven't you?

If you have, and it's still not working, then the likelihood is that there is a fault, this could be one of the following:

Faulty solenoid valve to grill (some grills had a safety button fitted to stop you from closing the door if the grill was being used)
Blocked pipe inside unit

Either way you need to get a qualified gas engineer to take a look at it, if it's under warrranty call the manufacturers first!

I hope this helps
