Hi I'm John I will help you with the problem.

Did you check where the 220 volts connects to the oven ?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No, because this means taking out all the facing and pulling out the oven. You have a point, so maybe this is what I should do. The breaker is now off. Resetting the breaker did work 2 days ago but not now. Am concerned about safety. Mike
