I have a Cucina DH53CK oven. Last night when I tried to turn

Customer Question

I have a Cucina DH53CK oven. Last night when I tried to turn it off I couldn't, the temperature dial turns 360 degrees and no amount of turning will switch either the oven light or fan off. We've resorted to switching the oven off at the wall. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a professional / a new oven?
The top oven similarly misbehaves but doesn't heat up or grill.

Hi ,it needs a new oven control thermostat. Its not easy to change, and would need a gas safe engineer to do as it means opening up the gas lines.
I would recommend a new oven as there are issues with top oven and grill

Thanks - it's not a gas oven though - it's electric and by Hotpoint - only bought 3 years ago...

OK , that's not long. With those issues I would still recommend replacing as you might be throwing good money after bad .

OK - well thanks, ***** *****'ve just found lots of simple videos showing me how to replace it and a part that will work for £35. I'll be trying that before shelling out on a new oven. Appreciate you trying to help.
