Thank you for your reply.
Is it a relatively simple matter to replace the defective part please; will I have to change the entire unit and is it easy to remove the stainless steel cover over the control panel please, I can see 2 screws under the bottom and presumably there are 2 screws on the top hidden by cupboard trim please.
That's great - thank you.
Which part should I order please, is it the complete timer unit or just the selector switch unit. And where can I get the part please, I'm a complete novice as you may have deduced and don't know where to start.
It all sounds expensive but a new cooker is a heck of a lot more!!
Oh crumbs, now what do I do, can I get the part repaired perhaps, I surely cannot afford a new cooker.?
Thank you very much for holding my hand.
As suggested I contacted Bosch and they suggest that I need the switch only, part No 00173204 which is replaced by p/n 00173204. It looks as if I can remove it by pulling it out through the front and replace without taking the oven out of the cupboard. Does this sound right to you please and is it feasible please.
Thanks - back to Bosch and ask the question you suggested.
I take it that there is a problem with the PCP perhaps?
I take it that there is a problem with the PCB perhaps?
Thanks for your prompt response.
Do I take it that that the selector control goes through the p.c.b. or there is a "shaft" that it pushes on to and some contacts on the back of the board that have dropped off please?
It would help immensely if you could let me have a diagram or schematic to give me some guidance please. I feel very wobbly about taking this on but my financial situation precludes buying a new cooker.
