Andrew Smith : Does the oven have a timer?
Andrew Smith : Is it the left or right oven not working?
Yes - it has a timer, but the timer isn't on at the moment.
Andrew Smith : Which oven is not working?
Neither of the ovens is working. If I turn the dial on either oven, both oven indicator lights on the control panel light up, but neither of the two ovens work
Andrew Smith : and this has happened suddenly to both?
Yes - it was working fine this morning, but now neither are working
Andrew Smith : ok, what is the display showing?
Andrew Smith : Is there an A top left?
The display in the centre has the time on it and an icon of a dish with steam rising from it
There is no A in the top left
Andrew Smith : Do the grills work?
Grill works fine
The grill is separate from the ovens
Big oven on right, small oven on bottom left, grill on top left
Andrew Smith : It appears that the grill elements have failed - but I do not know why they would both fail at the same time?
Andrew Smith : *oven elements
The grill is fine - do you mean the oven elements?
I unscrewed the cover at the back of the ovens and looked at the oven elements and they seemed fine - at least to look at
Andrew Smith : Looking at the wiring diagram the only other way that this could have happened it that the shorting strips have disconnected from the mains connection at the rear

Andrew Smith : That is a link to the installation manual
Is that something I can fix myself or do I need to get a qualified technician in?
Thanks for the manual
Andrew Smith : Perhaps to be sure is to use a multimeter and confirm you have power to the elements before we try and work through this any further
I don't have a multimeter to hand.
Andrew Smith : Ok, best to call an electrician who can confirm the problem with a multimeter - whether it is a problem with the appliance or the connection wiring
