Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

Have you seen any error codes/flashing lights?

Is it same on both ovens ?

Please DO NOT ACCEPT the PHONE CALL request.

That is auto generated and not sent by me.

Both ovens operate off the same power switch, there is no power getting to the oven therefore no flashing or warnings

I was thinking it might be a fuse issue but would not have a clue where to start looking

Are you still there

Thanks for that.

Sorry was away for few minutes.

As it is completely dead this indicates CLOCK Transformer is faulty and will need replacement.

The part is available here for around £30 + repair charges.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask!
