Well, our Stoves Vanette CG7000 is falling apart, and we can't afford to replace it. It was original equipment on the boat, which makes it 21 years old. A few months after we took possession in November 2016 we noticed that the oven wasn't cooking food in anywhere near the expected time. Investigation showed that the flame didn't get any higher regardless of the control knob setting, suggesting the thermostat had failed. We've learned to live with that - you just have to allow approximately 4x the stated cooking time because it seems stuck on low setting, which means planning two or more hours in advance if you want to cook a pie or something. Yesterday though, i had trouble keeping the grill alight, the flame died as soon as i released the knob. A bit of manipulation with the thermocouple suggests this is the fault because after a little bit of gentle pushing and poking i got the thing working again - but if it is disturbed the flame dies. I looked around the internet last year and could find little in the way of spare parts for this cooker, and the one oven thermostat i found was several hundred £. Does anybody know where parts for this model can still be sourced, and also of any documentation in the way of maintenance manuals anywhere around the Web? EDIT: the relevant model is possibly a GG7000, because this is all i can find on the Web, which means the original fitters misprinted this in the boat manual.
HI All, HNY! We have a vanette oven and grill. when we bought the boat in the summer we were told by the previous owner that it needed a new thermocouple. 6 months on and i finally bought one and fitted it! Sadly though it still doesn't work!! Bugger. It doesn't matter how long I keep the button pushed in, when I release it the grill turns off. Frustrating, especially as this probably means that the thermocouple i just pulled out was still working. Does anyone have any ideas what might be the problem? The thermocouple is new so nice and clean and no fat/oil deposits. The tip of it is in the flame of the burner when it is on. Not sure what else I can do? Cheers!
We bought our boat in November last year, and amongst many other things had the jets on the cooker checked and cleaned. We have a Vanette hob and a Vanette cooker, i can't give the model number atm because am not on the boat, but it's the equipment originally fitted to the boat in 1997. The oven has never really produced enough heat to cook efficiently requiring extra cooking time, but recently it's got worse to the point where it's not much use for cooking anything requiring high temperatures, merely for warming things up. I've done a bit of investigating and there are two separate gas pipes inside the cupboards, one leading to the hob and one to the oven and grill. Now curiously, not only does the hob work well, but so does the grill. It's only the oven that doesn't perform satisfactorily. We've cleaned the holes in the gas jet matrix to the best of our ability but to no avail. Now the thought did strike me that the oven is the only part of these appliances that would employ a thermostat, so maybe it's this that's at fault, but i'm not sure if or how this could be replaced. Certainly there is no noticeable to change to the flame when turning the control knob up from low to high. Another possible clue is that our surveyor noted that the gas regulator looked to be over ten years old and that it is good practice to replace every five years; however, our boat passed the BSS test a few months after purchase and, as previously mentioned, sufficient gas seems to reaching both the hob and grill for them to run satisfactorily. Any ideas?
