I have a Stoves double oven . The larger of the two is failing to ignite .
Help please!

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query.

Can you advise of the model of Stoves oven, and if you can hear the igniter clicking when you turn it on?

There isn't a clicking noise , unlike the small oven . Model no STS13900ps

I would prefer you to continue , other wise my phone bill will be huge unless you call me !

Sorry for the delay.

This would suggest the oven isnt meeting the pre-checks required to ignite.

If your not getting a spark the most likely cause is the gas valve, however will require a gas engineer to attend.

Please provide me with your postcode so I may recommend someone in your area.

Please give me a few minutes, to find a suitable engineer, if you prefer I can call you back with the information.

Due to your proximity to London the cheapest repair option is to use Stoves directly, they charge £139 (paid over 6 months) to repair the oven and that then gives you 6 months warranty for any further issues.

They can be contacted on 0344(###) ###-#### and then selecting option 2.
