Do you have a multimeter?

No.. and I am speaking to you from the UK.. the cooker is in France and I will have a go at it when I go over in August.
If you can suggest a possible selection of likely parts I will take a kit with me. I am not too bothered if I get a few unnecessary component's. I will change them anyway, possibly saving future problems...Cheers

OK buy a cheap multimeter with decent length probles for about £10. Should be able to measure AC volts and have a continuity beeper. Then parts --

Left hand oven - grill element

Main Oven is a little more tricky as it could be just a thermal fuse that has blown or the selector switch, thermostat, minute minder or oven element. Probably best to check things when you get there rather than spending lots on parts you dont really need.

Okay.. Thanks.. good start. Are these robust cookers?

Middle of the range, spare parts easy to get as is the technical information if needed. Could I now ask you to rate the information given to allow me to close the job down on my screen. Once done you can come back to me at anytime for further information on a free of charge basis - just log back onto this question and you will be routed to my desk. Thank you for using JA and have a good day. Ian
