Good day and Welcome to Justanswer,

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

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

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 13 days ago.

Have you checked the plug fuse or the trip switch ?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Ok.,.. trip switch. I've just flipped it back. And the clock works now...but I can't turn the oven on for some reason.
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 13 days ago.

OK, you will have to reset the clock so it works.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 13 days ago.

However, if it trips again, then this indicates a fault with the oven element that is faulty, and will need replacement.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
ok let me do that. ta. hold on.
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 13 days ago.

Sure, no problem.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
thanks. I think I;ve sorted. but if the bottom oven doesn't work after this....I need a new element? Correct?
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 13 days ago.

Yes, that is correct.

Glad it is sorted.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
