Good afternoon,

Welcome to, sorry just saw your question sitting here.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that must be.

As everything else including elements, fan are working fine and it is not heating; this indicates oven temperature sensor (thermostat) is faulty and will need replacement.

Depending on the make and model number of appliance the cost of repair will be around £45 + repair charges.

Sorry about bad news.
