Revise that - left hand oven does not work

Ok if the ovens still work but theres no display on there then it can only be a faulty timer.

The display part will have failed on it im afraid.

Now there isnt much you can do on this other then replace the timer. As the power is getting to the timer hence the oven working so it can only be the timer itself im afraid.

Sorry but the timer will need to be replaced to cure this im afraid.

Ok if the left hand oven isnt working then this will be due to the clock.

It can still be the timer and will more then likey be but it can also be the thermal cut out. To check this out you need to remove the oven and take the back off to check the thermal cut out.

If we replace the timer will the left hand ovn then work

If you check the thermal out at the back and thats fine then yes replacing the timer will cure this.

Is timer replacement something we can do ourselves or does it require a Rangemaster engineer?

If you are good at diy repairs then go for it.

But you usually need to remove the hob top to access the timer unit.

But you dont need to get a Rangemaster engineer in as any domestic appliance company that do cooker repairs will be able to do this for you as they will be cheaper the Rangemaster which is part of the Stoves company.
