JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

still not working when I turn the Function knob to fan oven it is flashing ---c still you haven't solved the problem I can not use my oven !!!!!

KevinWhiteJA :

OK I thought you said its not there

KevinWhiteJA :

if it still comes up then the problem is with the timer control that is bad and will need replacement

KevinWhiteJA :

before replacing you can also take the fascia off

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

what not there ? when I try to set the function knob to oven it comes back I have to go out now as a friend is going to cook the fish pie we were suppose to have last night. I would like the money back if you can not solve it Please

KevinWhiteJA :

then disconnect the connector from the timer one by one and connect them back together

KevinWhiteJA :

If you want to replace the timer control yourself then let me know so that I can provide you with instructions

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

how do I disconnect the connector from the timer one by one

KevinWhiteJA :

take the fascia off the unit

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

do I need to take off the knobs I have taken out the screws from the top

KevinWhiteJA :

yes that is right

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

How do I get the knobs off

KevinWhiteJA :

you can just pull them off

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

Done that

KevinWhiteJA :

ok

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

KevinWhiteJA :

KevinWhiteJA :

make sure everything is unplugged

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

check the connectors where? behing the function knob there are 2 connectors

KevinWhiteJA :

just pull them off and then connect them back again

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

KevinWhiteJA :

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

Switched it on and flashing digital clock flashing

KevinWhiteJA :

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

putting knobs back on

KevinWhiteJA :

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

knobs back on function knob turned to Fan themo Knob back on and set at 150 digital display flashing ----c again

KevinWhiteJA :

select some other function

KevinWhiteJA :

and check if the same error appears

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

selected grill still flashing ---c could it be the urcit board and can I disconnect to use the oven

KevinWhiteJA :

no I dont think it is the circuity board

KevinWhiteJA :

it seems the oven is overheating and causing this error

KevinWhiteJA :

can you test the thermostat with a multimeter

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

no I am not an electrican

KevinWhiteJA :

you have also tried to reset it by pressing the ok and - button but that is not working as well

KevinWhiteJA :

I understand I was just asking if you can do that

KevinWhiteJA :

if not then it is better to get it done through a repair engineer

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

have pressed the ok - button for 15 seconds still flashing ---c

KevinWhiteJA :

a new timer will cost £65 and a new thermostat will cost £47

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

is this what you think it is?

KevinWhiteJA :

yes ?

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

if so would I be able to fit myself a

KevinWhiteJA :

I would still recommend someone should test it with a multimeter first

KevinWhiteJA :

it is unlikely that it will test fine

JACUSTOMER-u0gwbdjn- :

so I need a technicion to test

KevinWhiteJA :

a repair engineer can do this
