The main oven, grill and light have all stopped working on

Customer Question

The main oven, grill and light have all stopped working on my Delonghi DFS 090 DO range oven (7 years old). The smaller oven and gas hob is working fine. I've tested the Thermal Limiter for continuity and its fine.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the thermal tests good, the main function switch is most likely at fault. Have you tested the elements and do you have a meter to test the power to the elements when it should be heating?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've tried a new function switch, which did not resolve the problem. I've also tested the elements they are ok. Whilst turning the function switch on there is a slight flicker from the red indicator lamp some times but no other signs of any power.

Wiring look okay? The flickering light indicates a current loss somewhere.

What do I need to do to check a current loss ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

You will need to measure voltage from the elements back and see where it is dropping out when the oven is on.
