Is the clock set to automatic cooking?
As you haven't said that it's been set for manual, we'll start with the clock.
As nothing at all is working it would suggest that the clock may well just need setting.
Click here for the user manual.
Check this first and let see how it goes setting the clock for manual cooking.
Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.
When it's first powered up it goes into automatic mode by default.
Can you confirm that the A isn't showing in the clock?
Thanks for that.
In that case, it would suggest that the thermal cut out has been activated.
Isolate the power to the appliance and take it out of it's built in location.
Take the top and rear panels off.
On the rear you should find a small item with 2 terminals attached to the oven housing.
Use a multimeter to determine if this is open or closed circuit.
If it's open circuit, to test further, take the wires and join them temporarily together, insulate and switch on. If the oven works this confirms that this item is at fault.
It should be on one of the Neutral wires and may be white (the colours can differ from the wiring diagrams).
Have a look, see what you find.
taken top and back off, checked thermal fuse (small white rectanglular block with 2 terminals which said "20W47ORT" on it - cables where purple for future reference)
and it's closed circuit.
Some good news it looks like new inside!
As stated in posting the only thing which "should" have happened to the oven during my holiday is it got cleaned, which makes me think the cleaner may have upset something inside the oven while cleaning it, guess either the elements or themocouple as thats pretty much all i can see in there...
Hope this helps?????
Sorry, It's not an element fault as that wouldn't stop the temperature light or the fan running.
It really sounds like a timer/clock fault.
On the rear of the timer/clock, how many wires are there?
Theres 6 connectors on the back of the timer circuit board made up of:-
2 off - Purple (single cable in each)
1 off - White and red striped (single cable)
1 off - orange cable and red cable (2 cables)
1 off - red cable and red cable (2 cables)
1 off - White cable and white cable (2 cables)
Sorry, the wiring colours don't match the wiring diagram.
Could you upload a photograph of the rear of the timer showing the wiring?
I should be able to work it out from there.
Working from the left on the picture.
Take the first 2 connectors off and temporarily join them together then insulate them.
Take the 3rd and 4th connectors off and temporarily join them together, then insulate them.
Apply power and try the oven again.
If the ovens work, the timer is faulty.
Connected two left hand side cables (purple) together
Connected next two cables (red/white and orange+red) together
switched on oven, turned thermostate up, switched on mains and put into manuel mode - no change to original problem
Sorry, but theres not much left to test i guess!!!!!!
Sorry, I'm at loss with this one.
Everything is testing fine.
I'll opt out of the question and open it to all experts again.
Perhaps someone will come up with something I've missed.
I can only suggest checking for more thermal cut outs on the appliance, although there's not one shown in the diagram I have.
Good luck with it.
OK, thanks for your help.
All the best,
