Great features, but they do occasionally stuff up
I had to have the first oven taken back because the F&P tech guys didn't know what was wrong with it. A case of too much electronics - hard to work out where the fault is. The oven door "locked" and being Friday night and a long weekend, I had food in oven for 3 days before Tech guy came and "unjammed" it(electronic malfunction), then the electronic board where main controls are played up. A new board didn't fix the problem so they gave me a new oven. Internal lights stopped working after 2 weeks and clock/timer sometimes changes by itself b...ut actual oven is still working after 12 months. I like the design, but less electronics would probably make it easier to operate & fix. And the internal lights should be more long lasting - they blow very quickly (a manual switch for the lights would be better - take heed F&P)....
Ok, but a few issues.
Nice looking oven, decent size however extremely noisy. Machine, when unwrapped and fitted had marks all over stainless parts due to the plastic. This could never be ckeaned or removed so basically ruined the look of the machine. Didnt bother contacting retailer as they usually cant be bothered. Wont buy F &P again.
Its a very good oven. Looks so good abostly love the way it looks. It is so easy to use, was able to work it out so fast. It cooks good too, gets up to temperature fast and stays at that temperature doesnt go down and up so everything cooks well.
My oven has a noisy fan
My oven browns better on one side than the other and when the fan is switched on it makes a noise before it is fully heated. I need to turn it on the grill mode and then after 10 minutes turn on the fan and it works better and less noisy then.
Good oven but not great
It functions well. My only gripe is the fan. After the oven is turned off the fan goes on and on and on and on.....I know this is a safety function but it can keep whirling for a good hour after the oven is switched off. Kind of annoying and noisy.
Self Cleaning - What a waste of time
Firstly I love the look of the new oven and when I worked out which setting to use it cooks beautifully. Love the plug in thermometer and having variable settings to choose from. Things I don't like are:-
The timer is way too low to even hear
The oven fan stays on for up to an hour after I have turned it off even if I open the door to cool it down quicker.
It is very noisy.
The self cleaning function takes me three times longer to clean than a normal oven, you have to remove the door then the three glass panels and clean them all separatel...
Questions & Answers
Used the self clean option2 hours into the clean it beeps flashes A1 which is over heating. Why is it doing this ?
I’m quite concerned about the excessive heat I’ve read that this unit pumps out. Is it only post cook as it’s cooling down, or throughout the whole process?
Hi just having issues with self cleaning as soon as I turned it on only for 2nd time used it shows error code F207. Does anyone know what that is.. I've looked in manual & online only say tech fault?
you will have to call Fisher & Paykel - that's the trouble with those electronic panels, they are always stuffing up with error codes and not even F&P know the answer - they will just change your panel. I'm going back to knobs for my next oven!!
