SYMPTOM Localised 'scorch' marks on the oven cavity faceplate and/or the door sub-assembly following normal operation. CAUSE Variation in the sealing gap between the door sub-assembly sealer plate and oven cavity faceplate could lead to localised scorching. This phenomenon can be aggravated by abnormal usage such as no-load operation.


Suggested repair methods are as follows: 1. Stainless Steel Cavities Providing the scorching is not of a severe nature: I. II. Rub the cavity faceplate down to remove marks. This can be achieved by use of a suitable grade of wire wool ensuring a uniform finish is obtained. Replace the door assembly.

2. Painted Cavities Unfortunately in these cases there maybe no option but to replace both oven cavity and door sub-assembly, dependant on scorching severity.

IMPORTANT Normal service procedures should follow any repair work i.e. leakage checks etc, and it is recommended that the oven is run for a sufficient period to confirm no repeat symptoms.
