Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - Can we just establish that you have heat when you select the normal oven operation?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
NO,I ONLY HAVE HEAT WHEN THE GRILL IS ON ,WHEN I SELECT FAN OVEN OPTION EVERYTHING WORKS BUT WITH NO HEAT(AS IF IT'S LOCKED ONTO DEFROST MODE,WHICH I DIDN'T KNOW WAS AN OPTION

Its not ~ that was why I asked the question, I think you have a faulty fan oven element, its not too difficult to change, are you happy to use hand tools and do you have a multimeter or mains tester?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
THAT WAS MY INITIAL THOUGHT THAT THE ELEMENT NEEDS REPLACING,BUT WHEN I READ THROUGH THE MANUAL IT TALKED ABOUT THE DEFROST WHICH THREW ME,I THOUGHT I WAS MISSING A SIMPLE SETTINGS SOLUTION AND DIDN'T WANT TO GO AHEAD AND REPLACE THE ELEMENT UNNECESSARILY.if that's the answer,thanks i can take it from here !
