We have a AEG touch control oven if you open the door during the cooking cycle to check progress or add some veg occasionally you get a lot of steam this will alter the heat setting ie 190 to 275 shut the door and the oven continues to cook at the higher setting (you then burn the food ) the more steam the more likely it is to happen
AEG say they cant do anything about this and this is operating normally has anyone else had this problem and what did they do
Thanks John

We have an AEG conventional oven with touch control and not had a problem - as with any conventional oven it all continues working even with the oven door open. We also have a matching touch control combi oven which stops cooking when the door is opened (as expected) - you just touch the start again after closing the door for cooking to continue. As with the big oven the cooking settings are not changed.

I am surprised that your oven shows this odd behaviour.

The problem is the oven temperature setting alters from say 190 to 275 you then shut the door and the oven then will heat up to the higher figure 275 this happens when there is a lot of steam AEG say this is normal

You then have to reset the setting to 190 or the food will burn

Try a little silicone spray on the touch pads. I suspect the problem is that the touch circuitry cannot discriminate between a finger and the condensation.
Our touch controlled hob is similarly confused by any spills on the touch surface.
