Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'. Is this a self cleaning oven?
Yes it heats the inside up to 500 degrees and burns everything to dust. at a certain point as the temperature rises the door locks.
Hi Thanks for that, The door lock is for when you use this cleaning process only due to the extremely high temperatures. They are a little tempremental and sometimes do not lock as your is doing. They are quite expensive if you want to replace, around £59,and then you need an engineer to fit, another £50 i guess. If you want to order a part I can source the part for you. If it does not bother you too much and your aware the door is not locking ,maybe you will not go to the expense. Awaiting your reply,regards David.
my problem is that it needs cleaning and without the lock working the oven is fifthly.
I am happy to order the lock, its a lot cheaper than a new oven of a similar standard.
Is this not something I can fit?
You may be able to fit, I do not know your electric capability with your DIY ability. It will clean usually without the lock working but if not you should be able to googlr part and order online. Hope this helps regards David.
As a qualified electrician I think I have the required skills to do the job, can't say I want to but needs must! It definitely won't clean without the lock working that I can confirm!
I appreciate your help, if you want to supply me the part at least you will earn something for all your help, how can we achieve this?
Hi, sorry for the delay, been away.
If you can advice of part number and seller that would be great thank you.
Hi, Do you have the part number i need so I can try and source it please?
