Hi is the oven actually heating during that 30 seconds before it trips out?

I assume so, but I've no way of being absolutely sure.
Hi I need for you to check on that once it runs for 30 seconds, open the door and check if it feels warm or hot? It will help us with this one;-)Thank youTech Michael

Ok. I turned the main oven on, the house fuse board tripped out shortly after. I reset the trip and turned the oven back on but nothing happened, no red indicator and no fan. I tried the secondary oven and that ran ok. The gas igniters work and the grill works.
Hi Thanks,This problem is the main control board that has shorted out and failed internally. That will need to be replaced. If you are handy I could help you make this repair, there is no soldering involved ;-) Just plug in wiring clips.The best place to get that main control board is : you have the part, I will help you make the swap, but if you don't feel you can do this one, you will need an engineer to replace that part for you.I wish I had better news for you I really do.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate kindly thus far, it won't cost you anything to rate my service to you kindly,There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)But it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise in this field.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank you and have a nice day!Tech Michael

Hello Michael, I have the pcb and have isolated the range.
Hi, the first thing is to remove the panel for the back so you can have access. Next before you unplug any wiring clips, please take a couple pics so you know for sure where they go back!Then you can release the old board from its mounting and unplug the wiring once you are sure you wont get confused on that.Let me know when you have gotten this far?Thank youTech MichaelI will be in and out today so I will reply as soon as I can on this;-)Usually my day odd lol.

Ok just reply when you need me;-)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've removed three cover plates so far, revealing the rear of the two fan motors and assorted cables but no sign of the pcb.
That board should be the one for the controls. Its on the face of the unit;-)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You mean the panel at the front of the range?
Hi yes, if thats the board they sent I hope.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok, I removed the rear panels so I will replace them. Then I remove the panel at the front through which the burner controls are positioned and the timer is housed?

I think I'll call it a day for now and contact you again tomorrow.
Ok I will be here.
