Hi If the power supply to the oven is fine but nothing is comming on then its possibley either a burnt out mains connection box, thermal cut out or timer. What you need to do is pull the oven out. There you will see the mains connection box. Open this and check the wiring in there and see if theres any signs of burning on there. If thats fine then if you have a test meter or volt stick just check to see if theres voltage there. If there is then turn the power supply off and remove the back panel.From there you need to locate the thermal cut out. Its round and will have 2 wires going to it and is about the size of a 10p. Check this for signs of burning. If you have a multi meter then you need to test it for contonuity and replace if faulty. But if the thermal cut out and the mains connection box if fine then its possibley the timer at fault. For this you will find its not worth fixing on a 15 year old oven as if the part is still availble then it will be over £100 so not worth it on this. So check the above if you are able to and see what you find. Regards
