This is the first built in oven we have ever had. Compared to our old slot in over this is very space age. The features are great and we are getting on well. However, considering we have only had the oven 5 weeks we have had issues with it. Initially the clock was loosing a lot of time, we contacted the company and was given the local agent details. They arranged for an engineer to fit a new part to correct the issue, when fitted the oven then showed a fault. The engineer contacted the technical department at AEG who recommended changing both circuit boards but commented that the clock was not a clock but a clock for cooking, interestingly, as when the oven is on you cant see the clock only the timer. A further appointment was made and both circuit boards were changed. The clock now seems to be keeping time but that night we noticed we have no heat in the top oven. We contacted them again about this. We now have to wait further 5 days before an engineer can check the fault. Not a good advert for the product.
Heat activated catalytic cleaning
The catalytic lining absorbs the grease from cooking and is activated by regular heating to 220°C. The grease residue is oxidised leaving the catalytic surface clean.
