Hi there, i have an 80k series stanley range. Had been working fine until today. It turns on but does not fire. It spins the oil pump then trips. Anywhere know where to start? I changed a solenoid and or rings in the pump last year. Ehat checks should i do? Is there an easy way to check the solenoids?
Thanks steve

Check you actually have oil to ,pump after that there is a falt finding chart in your manual (available on line if you don't have it) just follow it methodically.

Is this balanced flue? If so, there is a pressure switch that isolates the solenoid. When you say you have no ignition, have you checked for a spark at the electrodes or do you have no oil at the nozzle?

Electrodes on these are inclined to turn in porcelain insulators and will not spark therefore won't light. When was it last serviced as these
are a pig to get set right with 2 burners crammed into a 1ft cubed area.

So you have oil but no spark. First, check electrodes are in the right position and connected. Secondly, isolate the power to the burner, remove the control box and put a link in between the live and transformer terminals. Switch power back on. If you get no spark, then transformer is goosed. If you get a spark, then remove the link, replace control box. If no spark, then control box is suspect. You have a spare control box on the cooker burner. You may also have a spare transformer there too, but it may be different.
