Hiya,
Can you post the model number of the appliance please?
It should be on a label on the rear.

Thanks

Cannot get to the back of the cooker however the instruction booklet says model ml10frs

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.
.
Are you looking to repair this yourself?
If so, you will need to take the machine out.
Can you do this?

Thanks

I intend to get my husband to fix it. Im home alone at moment so cannot move it on my own. But yes it can come out of its gap

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, got you now.
It's a pretty common problem on these machines (I have the same machine) and it's not too expensive a repair.
It does involve taking the top and rear panels off.
.
I'll advise on the most common cause of the fault on your appliance.
There are other causes, such as broken or disconnected wiring.
.

The most likely cause of the fault you describe is going to be an open circuit thermal fuse. These are located behind the rear panel of the appliance.

.

Isolate the power to the appliance.

Pull the machine out and take the rear panels off.

Locate the fuses or cut outs.

Test them to see which has failed.

Obtain and fit replacements and your machine should be working again.

 

Here are pictures of the thermal fuse and of the thermal cut out.

This should help identify what is fitted to your machine.

The top one is the thermal fuse.

The bottom one is a thermal cut out.

 

If you have a thermal fuse, you'll likely need a kit to convert to a cut out as the fuses are no longer supplied. (an upgrade? )

 

You can get parts at http://www.4beko.co.uk/

 

Just search the model number (from the label on the rear of the appliance) and thermal.

that should bring up the current part for the machine.

 

Check it out, see what you find and get back to me if you need more help.

.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Hiya,
It's very unusual.

If it's been on fire I'd suspect some wiring damage and still the thermal fuse to perhaps have blown.
.
Can you post a photograph of the damage?

Thanks

I won't allow me to add the picture, not sure if its because im on the tablet and not the laptop? Which is a sshame Suzanne cos its a interesting photo

Hope this now works

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
Thanks for that.

That's pretty normal.
The heat from the oven does that to the insulation.
It's not been on fire and the fan motor appears ok too.
I don't see any burning/damage to the wiring.
.
You need to check the thermal fuses, as I advised previously, to find the cause of the fault.
.
Thanks
