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

Where the unit is stripping the RCD in the fuse box this suggests an earth leakage fault have you spilt anything on top or inside the appliance?

There hasn’t been any leakage but I did notice a corner piece had broken off on the top little golden piece of plastic covering an opening on side of oven

Did you get my last reply
Expert:  JamesI replied 9 days ago.

The appliance is most likely beyond economical repair since the fault would point towards the PCB based on its age, and due to the majority of parts showing as obsolete from Fagor.

You may wish to consider a fixed price repair such as the one here.
