Hi James. Are we still connected?

Yes, we are still connected I am just waiting on the parts diagrams being sent to me.

A new function selector switch can be sourced here for around £15.

To fit it you need to pull the knob off at the front and remove the screw which go in the front of the control panel and screw into the switch which sits behind (the screws are hidden behind the control knob).

You will need to then remove the entire oven and switch off\isolate power and remove the top of the oven to get to behind the control panel at which case you can replace the switch.

Make sure you take a picture of where the wires go, as you will not be able to get a wiring diagram telling you where each wires goes should one come lose.
