Good evening,

Welcome to

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that must be.

This indicates oven temperature sensor (thermostat) is faulty and will need replacement.

The control detects oven has not preheated hence, it remains stuck on preheat.

Based on the model number, cost of repair will be around £45 for part + repair charges.
