I have a Hotpoint fan oven just over two years old.
Today the wife shouted me and told me that it had stopped working. When I
got to it the clock was flashing, no fan and no heat.
I pressed some of the buttons and all was well. I am too stupid to
understand what the buttons do.
The wall plug is secure, no problem there.
This is the second time this has happened, last time was about three weeks
Would a split second power failure cause this?
The telly was on - no problems there.
The electric clocks did not fail.
Cheers for any advice.
Loose connection to the oven clock circuit?
The wife closes the oven door, momentarily breaks the connection and the
clock needs resetting. ISTR that the clock PCB is probably held into place
with blu-tac or similar
on some ovens.
You will not have any heat or inside light with the clock flashing. Most
ovens do not work until the clock is set. I guess it is a safety feature in
the case of a powercut. So a loose connection to the clocks PCB will reset
the clock and turn the oven off.
Son had similar problem when he had new oven/hob fitted ,seem the oven was
fed from the 30a DP switch for the old electric hob.
Said switch was at side of hob where SWMBO stored the pans.
When replacing cleaned pans they were pushed back to the wall sometimes
catching the switch momentarily switching off the oven causing the clock to
Worth a look before dismantling?
