This is a Rangemaster Professional 90 model. Both ovens have just stopped working. Everything else including the grill is working. Any ideas please?
Do you have, and can you use, a multimeter?

No and no.

OK, you won't be able to test anything which means it's very unlikely you'll find the cause of the fault.

However, unplug the appliance.
Take the rear panels off.

Follow the wiring from the connection block on the rear.
1 or more will go through a small thermal cut out.

If you find it, temporarily bypass it by linking it out with a piece of wire.

Loosely refit the panels.
If it comes on, you need a new thermal cut out.

You'll also need to check the cooling fan is working.

Let me know what you find.

The cooker is built in so this calls for a bit of work to see if I can find a way of getting into the back! I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks.

No problem, just post when you can.

I am both ashamed and relieved to say that we have resolved the problem which was caused by the timer being on 'auto'! I am sorry to have wasted your time. At least we know where to come in the event of future problems. Please let me know what we owe you? Thanks.

Thanks for letting me know.

I had assumed the timer/clock was working.

Glad you sorted it out

Good luck with the appliance
