Resolved Question:

I have a Baumatic bom7240ss oven. Whilst using it I heard a 'pop' from the upper element, and now the oven unit does not work at all and there is no display. The hobs still work. I think I need to replace the upper element but just wondering if this likely to be the only problem given the whole display is also off? Thank you.

Hello Rachel, my name is***** the clock has stopped working it is likely that the oven has tripped the electric, blown a fuse, or opened a thermal cutout.. therefore, just replacing the element will not allow the oven to work.. Check the consumer unit fuse, also the fuse in the plug (if appropriate)

Thank you. What do you mean by consumer unit fuse? Do you think maybe I don't need to replace the element at all it or does the popping sound mean that it has gone?

The trip switch in the electricity control box for your house. The popping sound usually indicates that one or another of the elements have gone.. There three in your oven to my knowledge.

Thank you. There are no switches tripped. The oven has no plug but there's a switch on the wall. Does that mean there is an internal fuse somewhere?

The oven is hard-wired into the wall. I don't have a multimeter, do I need one? Where might the fuse be? Thank you.
