“Still good after 11 years, minor power-up problems”

Written on: 08/01/2020 by 53Lacroix (1 review written)

We got the Genus 900 brand new in 2009. It takes a bit of getting used to. Maybe we've been lucky reliability wise. It's extremely useful in the Genus quick cook mode. Bread is very quick to make with it. You have to pay attention to the temperature & time suggestion sheet as some settings work better than others, so need either temperature or time adjustment or both. You get to know what is needed eventually but we keep our crib sheet hung next to the cooker for quick checks. Occasionally we… Read Full Review

“QUITE GOOD OVERALL”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by RICH42 (2 reviews written)

Not many problems with this oven that I have had over 5 years. Door open aspect fixed quickly and no prob since. Circuit Board just blew now but have a warranty. Do these things have a timer to blow after warranty expirses? Genus aspect takes takes getting used to and tends to dry out food if not careful; just use a roasting bag. Overall genus good but does not work if used with an anti-spill cloth on the bottom… Read Full Review

“Stoves Genus 900 Oven user experience”

Written on: 18/11/2013

We bought this (our 1st ever new oven) in 2007. It definitely works differently to std ovens. Judging by some other reviews we seem to have been lucky - ours has been totally reliable. (You never know how much heavy use or how people treat their stuff or if it was badly installed) It's not mentioned in the manual but the "Genus" function seems to be some kind of microwave effect - except that it works with metal dishes which you can't put in a microwave. This might explain the "sparking"… Read Full Review

“Not so Genus”

Written on: 29/05/2013

Bought mine 6 yrs ago. the concept was fantastic the reality very poor. firstly getting used to the genus cost lots in wasted meat products finding the correct timing. the guide was close but not exact. Secondly the unbreakable one dial operation broke. could not set a time or temperature. kept jumping to its own level. door keeps breaking. sparks keep appearing. thunderstorms shut it down very sad and it cost £1100. had it repaired at least 2 times a year for 6 years… Read Full Review

“Does not live up to its looks and very noisy!”

Written on: 10/07/2012 by DalesDiva (1 review written)

Bought this in 2007 and immediately had problems, the door sign kept flashing. They came to repair, but a couple of months later door sign started flashing again. For the past few years we've got by using a match stuck into the connecting prongs, so they make contact. Another disadvantage is that it is very loud when in use. We have to turn up the radio every time or else we can't hear it. Last night the oven finally went kaput and I have just rung Stoves to find out about getting it fixed… Read Full Review

i bought this oven in march 2007. the genus mode is very good, it cooks food in half the time of the conventional oven. the problems are relibility. it has had numerous electronic boards. it turns it self off and will not come back on. if the oven has not been used for some time it has to be re-programmed. so the relibility it far from good… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2011

I have a 905F Great cooker when it works - PCB blew in October, still waiting for a new one, scheduled for late Feb if I'm lucky. Customer services are poor and although polite do little to resolve issues. I inadvertently ordered the wrong part, they are happy to refund(minus a £5 admin fee) but will take 3 weeks to send the address stickers by post and then another 3 from them recieving part to refund the cash by cheque! What is wrong with them? Farcical. I will never ever buy another Stoves… Read Full Review

This oven is completely useless. I have had it since November 1996, had everything changed 3 power supplies, 4 front pannels, door hinges, complete front oven door, new elements.

You cook in the conventional at 180 degrees it only reache 150, then it looks as though it does not know what to do as the temperature goes up and down to whatevey it wants to do, the grill comes on full, when your not around, very dangerous, turn this off from the wall is the best thing to do if your not around!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2010

I bought my oven in June last year and it worked well for 3 months. Since then it has had 3 new circuit boards and the grill and oven kept turning on and off even when not in use. I was told in May 2010 that they no longer made this model and would replacr it with the S7 900 MF on the 20th of July. A week before delivery they rang to say there was a delay in getting the parts and moved it to the 20th of August. By this time the grill did not work. Then once again they moved the delivery date to… Read Full Review

I never thougt that i`ll be write something about electric oven, but always used only microwave oven bucouse i want fast cooked my food and all. But now i tryed a double electric oven and it`s very cool. My food so delicious, i feel like a chef in a restaurant.

Minus when i cook it`s very hot on my kitchen, beter cook in the evening when the sun still down.

Written on: 03/03/2010

I bought my first Genus 900 in April 2007. It kept going wrong so was replaced by Stoves in September 2007 with an extended guarantee giving 3 years in total. The cooker has been great until Jan'10. I have had numerous service calls. The problems are not resolved. Stoves are now debating giving me a replacement. Needless to say I shall NOT be choosing a Genus 900!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2009 by SueDevon (1 review written)

Like a number of other reviewers I have had major problems with this Stoves Genus double oven. When it works it's great, but a couple of months after installation we came downstairs in the morning to discover the grill had turned itself on, there was a terrible buring smell and the oven and whole cabinet was hot. I hate to think what would have happened if we had been out. We called the engineer under warranty but had to wait nearly three weeks for a part (the circuit board I think) to arrive… Read Full Review

Gsgman's Response to SueDevon's Review

Written on: 08/12/2009

I too am experiencing the same issues with this oven a "Genus Multifunction Oven 900 Stainless Steel." Every time there is a power cut or the house consumer unit trips it causes a fault with the oven requiring a change of fuse or circuit boards. Today however Tues 08th Dec we awoke to the smell of burning and on investigation discovered the kitchen full of smoke, only to find the oven was red hot including the control panel and knob, so hot in fact that it had melted the cupboard door above. The oven unit had obviously switched itself on overnight. I no longer consider this to be a normal fault but a high risk fire hazard and have reported the incident to Trading Standards who said they will pass on for investigation under the sale of dangerous goods.
<br/>The engineer has just called and stated this is the first time he has seen this sort of heat damage and Stoves have agreed to a full refund which we then have to claim back from Sainsbury's from where we made the purchase.
<br/>Now we have to find a new oven before Xmas

Written on: 04/10/2009 by mosquito21 (1 review written)

We bought our Stoves Genus double oven when it first came out and it cost us a whopping £1,000. When it was delivered it wasn't working so Stoves replaced the whole oven 2 weeks later. Since then we have received 4 new control panels, a new grill unit for the top oven, had several other glitches and when we had a short power failure the other week the top grill turned itself on (even with the door closed) and it was only when I smelt burning and went to look that I realised this had happened… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2009

Our Genus 900 is effected by the slightest power supply glitch. It locks up. We need to turn the oven off at the fuse box for over an hour to reset the self test. We have had several computer boards replaced under warrantee. The local service is frustrated with this model, ours is not the only one. They can only keep changing out the boards. Now they are not even coming out to us anymore. We still have two months before our warrantee expires. We feel abandoned by Glen Dimplex… Read Full Review

I was very impressed with the full functions of the Stoves genus Electric Double oven. I love that I can cook Roasted veg or traditional roast in the fraction of the time. That you can cook a medium chicken in half an hour, now that is great for Sunday Roasts! Jacket potatoes are cooked in a fraction of the time. Cakes and other food also are accelerated meaning less time spent in the kitchen and more in the expectation and enjoyment of what is to come. its a trial and error choice on how long… Read Full Review

“Stoves genus Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven...”

Written on: 10/02/2009

Stoves genus Stainless Steel Electric Double Oven looks good and cooks well when working. Will never buy another Stoves cooker. Poor practical design and unreliable. Bad points are: Runners came apart. Ours broke down within a year of being new. Electronics problem. £ years later, same has happened and we are faced with a bill for a fault that seems to reoccur. Knobs on top melted. Anyone leaning on cooker inadvertently turns things on… Read Full Review
