Blanco fan forced gas oven will not ignite. Only the

Customer Question

Blanco fan forced gas oven will not ignite. Only the electric griller with fan comes on. I have turned the control to oven and the griller comes on. The same as when I turn the control to griller symbol which should come on and it does. The oven is not recognizing to light the gas jets. I have misplaced my manual so not familiar how to set the oven back up. I have played around with control window where it has + symbol, - symbol, manual and automatic, plus a bell symbol, plus hours and minutes. As mentioned, when I cooked a roast last I had it on griller by mistake, and a lot of smoke was coming out of the oven until I realised my mistake, but it would not ignite from then onwards, so had to resort to bbq to finish off the meat. I hope this is sufficient information to help problem.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect a thermal fuse may have opened with the griller selection only on. The smoke would indicate that it definitely got pretty warm in there so it probably opened as a safety.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

I don't see a thermal fuse for this model. The manual is available at the link below. Will the oven program and operate after programming?

I think this is too difficult for me to solve over the internet as my elderly husband has been in hospital and came home at the weekend, and I am now caring for him. I have now decided I would prefer to have a technician visit me. Thank you for your help, and please take my name off the monthly trial period and joining fee. I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused your organisation and kelly the technician. kind regards kathy
