Hi sorry to hear that. Did you mean the brand was STOVES?
How old is your oven?
Is this a gas model as I suspect?
And did you mean that once it shuts off prematurely, when it cools it will try to re light?
The more you can tell me clearly the better I can help.
Thank you

You are right, it is a Stoves gas cooker, double oven. I can light the oven and it stays on for a short time, and then goes off. It does not relight itself and never has done. I have to do it manually. The light on the timer comes on, but not the gas, until I turn the tap off then on again.

Thanks Rich for the clear explanation ;-)
What you have here is a failing thermo couple.
It is a safety device that will turn the gas off when it cant sense the flame, thinking that there may be gas flowing but no fire to burn it.
Its a good part lol.
But in your case that one needs replacing. Its not too difficult to do for someone who's handy and has some basic hand tools.
If you want I can source the part for you and even help you make the repair if you feel up to it?
Or you would need an appliance repairman to do this for you.
Please let me know, I will stick with you until this is fixed one way or the other, in case you have any further questions about this Rich.
since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)

I do wish you to help me to source the part and to give me some instruction in putting into the appliance. Will it be difficult to buy the part as I live in England. Also I shall have to pull the appliance out and turn the gas off and the electricity supply 240 v ac.

I will put the laptop near to me when I start work on the oven.

Please explain how I give a good recommendation to you and also the amount I have given will I think give me a week. Is this what you mean. Richard

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately the cooker has such a poor report of feedback with other people saying that it has so many faults with it , that it is not worth our time and trouble trying to rectify it. People say that flames have been seen coming out through the grill door melting the taps. I also have witnessed this. The cooker is unreliable, and I am not taking the chance with it.

Best wishes Richard

Hi Rich, in this case, I dont blame you and I do agree.
I wish you the best with you new purchase!
