Hello, my name is George..
Are you saying that everything works except for the clock and the oven?
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
None of the electrics work nothing
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
First thing to check is that you are getting 240v across the live and neutral at the rear of the cooker
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok but can't do this now too late in the night will contact you tomorrow
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Ok..
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes there is power going to the cooker
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Have you got a multimeter, and have you got theknowledge to use it?If you have the capability, and the starting point would be to test that positive of one side of the terminal block is reaching the opposite side and then likewise for the neutral

No multimeter I'm screwed in i
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
How are you testing power then?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know there is power because 1 of the knobs you turn when turned the LED above flashes for 1 second then goes off
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Ok, then if you are sure that there is power getting to the selector then I would hazard to say that there is a connection that is faulty (probably interior side of the terminal block), giving power but so low or such a bad connection that it is not enough to power the clock or anything else.
You need to get a multimeter and test the power line to the clock from the terminal block.. Also the continuity of the neutral to the terminal block from the clock.
