SYMPTOM Localised 'scorch' marks on the oven cavity faceplate and/or the door sub-assembly
following normal operation.
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: -
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.
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
