    We'll be travelling back to travelworld to have our oven fixed - this will be our third attempt at getting the problem sorted and I'd like to ask if anyone else has had the problem we're having.

    The problem is that the gas lights and stays on for approx 10 mins then clicks and goes out. I felt that it was the thermostat but travelworld said it was the cooling fans and replaced both. On the first use the oven did exactly the same as before and cut out. Is there anything else it could be other than the thermostat?

    Yes, I posted a while ago about the oven (a Thetford OG72000). I still have the problem and don't want yet another wasted trip to the dealers as they're hundreds of miles away from us.

    If there's something other than the thermostat that could be wrong I'd like to be able to mention it to the dealer.

    If the oven is still in warranty contact Thretford they should !!!!! send an engineer.

    Good point Colin. We did ask Travelworld to send someone to us as we've been up to them twice for the same issue and they said their engineers weren't mobile :rolleyes:. I'll contact Thetford tomorrow. Thanks for that!

    I know another funster had a problem with a Thetford oven going out and the problem was a faulty thermocouple.

    I've just had a look at Thetford website. Looking at their dealer/service agents Travelworld MH's are NOT shown as agents in Telford so be careful what you say to Thetford. Look at their warranty statement. You can take your MH to any dealer/service near you.
