Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries

Dales-Electronic :

You may be able to get at the switch panel but the control box will be much more difficult, if it were me I would remove the whole lot ~ much easier to work around it on the kitchen table than being bent backwards over an oven ~ Ian

Customer : Agreed, but due to a cock up on the tiling, not easy to remove.
Customer : is a matter of removing some of the screws!
Customer : ?

Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Sorry Kevin, you will need to remove the appliance from its situation in order to access the controls from behind the cover.

However, if it is the control circuit board that you have a problem with as opposed to the control, then that is accessible from behind a metal cover behind the filters.. (see image)
