Ok. I turned the main oven on, the house fuse board tripped out shortly after. I reset the trip and turned the oven back on but nothing happened, no red indicator and no fan. I tried the secondary oven and that ran ok. The gas igniters work and the grill works.

Hello Michael, I have the pcb and have isolated the range.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi, the first thing is to remove the panel for the back so you can have access. Next before you unplug any wiring clips, please take a couple pics so you know for sure where they go back!Then you can release the old board from its mounting and unplug the wiring once you are sure you wont get confused on that.Let me know when you have gotten this far?Thank youTech MichaelI will be in and out today so I will reply as soon as I can on this;-)Usually my day odd lol.

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Ok just reply when you need me;-)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've removed three cover plates so far, revealing the rear of the two fan motors and assorted cables but no sign of the pcb.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
That board should be the one for the controls. Its on the face of the unit;-)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You mean the panel at the front of the range?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi yes, if thats the board they sent I hope.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, I removed the rear panels so I will replace them. Then I remove the panel at the front through which the burner controls are positioned and the timer is housed?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Correct;-)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think I'll call it a day for now and contact you again tomorrow.
