OSF600ven Clock sets OK but cannot turn oven on either

This answer was rated:

Clock sets OK but cannot turn oven on either on auto or manual
This oven stopped working after power cut
Please have you any advice
If the clock is set and not flashing then its possibley the timer itself that's faulty or the thermal cut out.
What you need to do is pull the oven out and remove the back panel and from there locate the thermal cut out. Its about the size of a 10p and will have 2 wires going to it.
Test this with a multi meter and see if faulty. If so then it will need to be replaced.
If that's ok then its possibley the timer itself at fault. Now if you don't use timer cooking then you can bypass this. If you wanted to do this then you need to take a picture of the back of the timer with the wires on it and post it on here and I can then tell you how to bypass it.

Cannot get back off - wiring too tight. Please let me have direct email to send photo as cannot attach photo to this message
Im afraid we cannot give email addresses as the site doesn't allow it. It will get crossed out and you wont see it im afraid. All contact is done on here.
Just upload it to a file sharing site and post the like on here. You can try then I can see it.
But is the picture the back of the timer as I need to be able to see it.

How do I post the link "here". The image is in MediaFire but cannot copy and paste it here.
Ok you just copy the link that media fire will have given you and paste it onto box were you write.
Do you know how to copy and paste on your computer?
If not then you highlight the link and then right click and click copy.
Then come back here and right click on you mouse and click paste and it will copy it onto there.

Great thinking that was ive seen it now.
To bypass the timer you need to join the wires that are in the bottom right corner which is the brown and white wires next to each other.
Join them together and that will bypass it and if it was the timer at fault the oven should work then.

Still not working I will have to get a local electritian to get the cooker out or the fittings and look at the thermal cut out
Ok if its not working still then its more then likely the thermal cut out at the back.
