Hi we have a Cannon C60etc free standing electric cooker and the oven is behaving a little bit erratically, ie you set it to 200 and it will beep and say its hot enough at 160 and variations on that theme. The way I check what its at when it beeps and says its reached temperature, ie you can turn the knob back and forth to see where it cuts in and out although with the playing about it is awkward.

The other way that we really know its not getting up to temperature is that the food is not cooking any where near the normal way so that some stuff just does not get hot enough or browned etc. Even on the highest setting its getting hot but no where near what it should get to.

I have had the control fail before several years ago and changed it, so when this problem occured this this time I changed it again as the fault seemed similar to me at first but now that I have changed it nothing has improved.

I'm thinking the only thing left that matters (obviously the elements are working as it gets hot, and I doubt a failing one would give such erratic results for so long without blowing....not sure if thats even possible anyway) is the thermostat.

I dont want to keep thowing money at this old cooker (about 8 years old or more I think) if we end up thinking its better to replace it but I think its obvious it must now be the thermostat, can somebody give me there opinion of this fault please?

Have I fogotton anything, or is this the next and only logical step left?

Any advice appreciated.

Just thinking out loud and not giving an expert opinion I would agree that the thermostat does sound like it is defective. But a quick look at spare thermostats they can be anything from £30 to £60 to buy the part. You need to consider how much more time this buys before replacing the whole cooker and I think I would advise dump it now and get a new cooker, you could be chucking more money at the existing cooker with no guarantee :thumbright:

Just looking online myself it appears that this has an electronic board to switch the oven.
You can get spares for the potentiometer (which the knob turns to set the temperature)
Also the temperature probe that "tells" the electronics what the temperature in the oven is.
If the electronics board is shot it needs programming to the cooker by a service engineer, and isn't an economical repair. according to this here https://bit.ly/2OrWVab
