Good afternoon,
I am sorry to hear about this.
How old is your oven/range?
Also did both the fan and ignition fail at the same time?
And is the ignition for the burners up top working or is it just the oven ignition that is not working?
Please explain in detail so I can help you effectively;-)

hi Micheal

the grill and the small oven work fine but not the fan oven and ignition to the gas burners, i did however smell a slight burning smell just before the oven fan stopped whilst cooking pizzas and also noticed the red thermostatic light that's on the fan oven dial control stopped working, so its seems to have lost power

Thank you for that.
Do you have a meter to test for power at the switch?
Did the fan and oven ignition fail at the same time or at different times?
