Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Expert:  Daniel replied 6 months ago.

Can you post the model number please. Its usually on a sticker on the inside of the door frame as you open the door.

If not then could you post a picture of the front of the oven so i can see the controls please.

Have you got the photo?
Expert:  Daniel replied 6 months ago.

Yes ive got the picture, Im just trying to find what model this is.

Is there a sticker on the inside of one of the doors with the model details on it?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No, unfortunately not.
Expert:  Daniel replied 6 months ago.

Ok when you turn the right dial for the oven on does the light inside the oven come on and is the fan in there running?

Also as to the clock is it set or flashing, Its hard to tell from the picture.

the fan runs and the light.comes on. It heats up quickly too. The timer flashes when I turn the oven on and I press the black button beside it to start the clock.
Expert:  Daniel replied 6 months ago.

Ok so the oven does work but its just not controling the heat. Or it could be if you turn the dial all the way round till it wont turn no more then thats maximum temperture which is 250 degress C. So if you turn the dial down about will it seem to control the heat better?

Im also still trying to figure out the model as well to see if i can find any info on it which will help indentify the markings on the control panel.

Both top and bottom ovens work, I was just wondering what the various turns of the knobs did in terms of temperature and whether there is a difference between fan and convection oven?
Expert:  Daniel replied 6 months ago.

Im sorry im not finding anything on this just by the picture im afraid. If i had the model number it will be easyer to find the info, So without that its very hard im afraid.

I will opt out and if another expert can help on this they will jump in.
