Hi, Im Daniel and welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your oven, Hopefully i can help you on this.

You may get an offer for a phone request, Now im afraid i dont do them as i only do the online chat so if you dont want the phone request then just ignore it.

Can you post the make and model number please.

I seem to have lost the instructions manual but I believe it’s HOOVER HSO8650X Electric Oven

It looks like it turned off during the clean as there is still water in there so it didn’t finish

Ok what may have happened here is the safety thermostat has tripped out.

We see it alot on self clean ovens as they get very hot inside and it can cause the over heat thermostat to trip out.

So if you are looking at fixing yourself then you need to remove the oven panels and find the safety thermostat and check it with a test meter to see if faulty.

I have sorted it now, it was a tripped circuit as noticed nothing else was working
