I have a Britannia range cooker, and it's making a funny

Customer Question

Hi - I have a Britannia range cooker, and it's making a funny 'burnt hair' smell soon after switching on the oven. I took the top off and discovered a burned connector - even the wire is a bit charred. It's on the back of the temperature selector dial/knob. My question is can you identify the part and tell me if I can fix it myself or whether I need a proper repair person
Make Britannia
Model SI-9T6-SLX-S
I have taken a pic of the offending part - can't attach it here though
Cheers
Matt

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to your queries - could you send me a picture of the burnt switch assembly and I will see if I can identify it for you.

OK that is an oven thermostat, can you confirm that it is for the main oven? The repair from what I can see in the will consist of cutting off the double black cable about an inch down, stripping the cable back and refitting a new connector and then removing and replacing the oven thermostat. Technically its an easy enough job its a one for one swop over. I will check tomorrow when I get to work for the part number for the thermostat, if you can just confirm it is the man oven thermostat.

Yes main oven. Sounds ok to fit. Would I need to solder, or does the wire just push in or something? We need this fixed before xmas(!) so might have to do it myself, if I can't get a repair man to do it soon. Salad for xmas dinner?!Matt

Whats your postcode just in case we need an engineer out to you. No you wont need to solder it on, a crimp connector will do.

Hi Matt,
This is the link we spoke about, as suggested ring them first to confirm that they actually have the item. If you get stuck give me a ring and I will try other companies for you - the part number for you thermostat is A49206 Copy and past the link below it takes you directly to your part, they are listing it as in stock (but)
