Good morning I have a Belling Formula 170 Model CHU 160

Customer Question

Good morning
I have a Belling Formula 170 Model CHU 160 Fan Oven. Both the Hob and Grill work, but the oven will not work. The clock/timer flashed then went blank and having looked at the instructions this is perhaps why the oven will not work. I have changed the fuse in the wall socket for the oven, but to no avail.
Any ideas before I go out and buy a new oven! Help
With thanks

OK I need you to give me the product code that is on the label it is quite long and should start with 4444............. once I have this I can look up the wiring diagram and see what we can do.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
Yes that is fine or this evening I will be back on her from about 1600 onwards, in your case its either going to be an internal fuse gone or the timer.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK I will see what I can find out, the model number is ***** only and a long number starting with 3, 4, 5 or 7. I need this to access the engineers website the alpha/numeric doesnt work. But lets see what I can find out during the day.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Apologies, but that was all I could see - will have another look tonight
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
I've asked my college back in the office to see if she can find anything but initially they couldnt either so have passed it on to technical for them to look.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK is this a fairly old cooker and can you tell me how many buttons the timer/programmer has?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hello
There are six buttons starting with the timer, auto, stop auto, hand (?) and minus and plus.
I hope this assists

Secondly have you got someone that can follow my instructions and join wires together? Excellent, if you can or have someone who can we can bypass the clock all together which will allow you to use in manual mode.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Ian
I am sorry, there is only myself and not sure I will be able to manage dealing with wires/electricity etc. - is it difficult?
Plus I work all day and am only there in the evening, with at the present time no access to the Internet (relaying cables etc.)
Thank you for your assistance, but looks like I will be paying a visit to Currys at the weekend!
With kindest

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK if you would like me to phone you and talk you through the repair I am happy to do so but if you feel it is a little beyond you I can recommend a local guy to come around and sort you out if you wish.
If on the other hand you have decided to buy new would you kindly rate the help given so far by selecting from the star system above. This allows me to close down the job whilst at the same time giving you free information free of charge.

In both cases indicate that you wish to him a timer bypassed as the part is no longer available. Make this quite clear, as I don't want the engineer turning up and saying they can't do it because the part is no longer available. It is possible that they wont want to do it, if so come back to me, its not a difficult job.

Thank you so much.Will come back to you if I have any problems.With kindest as always
