Hiya,

Does you cooker have a timer?

Is the timer set to manual?

If it's not set to manual then the oven won't work.

If it's flashing, have you had a power cut?

 

Thanks

there is no timer on it! there was a spark inside and it tripped the power!

Hiya,

OK, the service manual I have for the Chesterfield shows a timer.

Can you post the actual model number from the label in the oven door recess and I'll see if I have anything for your machine.

 

Thanks

The label says s/n XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX There is no gas going to the main oven at all. Its not the clock, thats all ok.

Hiya,

OK, thanks for that.

 

The service manual I have shows a timer (the clock is the timer)

As it's all ok, it suggests a fault with the timer.

 

The timer has the relay on it that stops the gas solenoid opening.

 

Sorry, I'll opt out of the question as I can't prove the clock (timer) is the cause of the fault.

 

Sorry

The top oven / grill & hob still work so i don't see how it can be the timer! How would we double check this?!
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

The timer doesn't control the grill and hob, only the oven.

As I said, I can't prove it's faulty.

If it's set to manual, then it would need testing with a multimeter and possibly bypassing to see if it's the clock at fault

 

Are you able to take the appliance apart to gain access to the rear of the timer and the wiring to it?
