When you turn the larger oven on does the interior light/fan come on, or does it show now sign of life at all?

It shows no sign of life at all
Expert:  JamesI replied 3 months ago.

In that case it points to a fault with the function selector switch, I assum when you set the function switch to light only or right round to grill only your not seeing the light or the grill come on?

that us correct nothing happens at all. One googled response was that it was the Thermal Limiter but to be honest I don't want to start buying parts and messing about with the cooker
Expert:  JamesI replied 3 months ago.

Its not the limiter, that wouldnt cause the fan to stop running if anything it keeps the fan running to cool the oven down.

This is clearly a hardware fault on the oven, and as a high energy appliance it is advisable to get a competent person out to repair the oven.

Give me a minute and I can recommend some local engineers.
