Hiya,

Isolate the power to the appliance.

Disconnect it from the electrical supply.

Take the oven out of it's housing.

Take the top off.

(Be careful, the metal is sharp).

At the front right, on top, is the main control board.

You'll see the word Service and an arrow pointing to an outlined area.

What is in the area?

Thanks

Hi, I've done this and I can see the word service and an arrow pointing to 5 resistors labelled 0 - 4.

Hiya,

Thanks for that.

Is there any burning or obvious damage on the board?

By the way, F03 indicates a failure of this board.

Thanks

Hi, Board looks fine - nothing obvious top or bottom.

Hiya,

OK, thanks for that.

Cut one end of resistors 2 and 3.

Lift them clear and insulate.

Reassemble the appliance and try it again.

If all is well, the appliance will work.

If you still get F03, I'm afraid you need a new board.

Hope this helps

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks

Good luck with the appliance.

If you could click on Accept for me, I'd be grateful.

Thanks
