Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your appliance?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The only details I have are as follows: ILVA ROMA,90centimetre, Twin Range Cooker, PDW906E3. It is just over two years old.

Does the light inside either of the ovens come on?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Hi, just checked both ovens. The light comes on in the small oven

Right if the light only works on the small oven but not the large, and neither of them heat up or have a fan running it suggests a significant fault, most likely with the PCB. Since the ovens have separate controls knobs so that rules out the function selector switch, and have separate wiring and thermostats so the only part left in common is the PCB.
