Probably not a cable failure more likely to be a screw in a connector block which has not been tightened correctly.

Unless you are a competant person I would not advise going beyond what you have done so far.

I would start at the plug top and make sure that the screws are tight on all connections then use a multimeter on ohms across the Live & Neutral to see if there was any resistance showing.

If that was dead then (WITH THE POWER OFFI would go to the terminal block which connects the power cable to the cooker and check for continuity using a buzzer on both Live & Neutral cable

If there is continuity on both then it is a case of checking for internal fuses on the unit or a bad connection leading up to or on the connector strip which supplies the on/off switches for the various elements.

I recently lost the front two rings on a Halogen cooker which had worked fine until we took it out to put a new worktop down.

The problem was a metal link which for over two years had been laying across the contacts without beeing fastened down.

Why has our oven stopped working whilst cooking - nothing electrical seems to be working?


Did you check your electrical breakers? Maybe it tripped. Reset it by first switching it fully to the off position, then switch it to on.

No power after self cleaning


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:
1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.
5.
6.Even a bad relay door switch will hinder your oven from operating.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

Put an AC Amp meter (preferably a logging type) on to the unit for when using it. See if it exceeds that of the circuit breaker or fuse. Most of these appliances pull about the maximum allowable load from the mains supply. If the Amps never exceeded the rating of the breaker or fuse, this means the problem is with the electrical panel.

I have seen a defective heating element in appliances cause the tripping of a circuit breaker in the electrical panel. With age the element becomes a little lower in resistance at times, and thus is drawing slightly too much current. Replacing the element fixed it.

This oven needs the time set after a power failure. The LED display will read HELPME and there is a small knob on the left side you need to turn it to set to change the time and use the second knob from left side to + and once done leave the knob on manual. The oven can be timed to turn off but it the time is not set on it the oven and stove do not work.dux_training.jpg

Electrical output requirement for a buit-in oven and cooktop


Providing the existing switch outlet iscontrolled by a 30amp circuit fuse or trip, then there is no problem connecting the 2 appliances to the same switch.
If on the other hand, it is controlled by a 13 amp breaker, then you cannot connect both appliances to this, you would have to use 2 seperate sockets.
Hope this clarifys your question.

My wall oven's heating elements stopped working. Clock, enterior light still work.Model REG74BL*3


Sounds like one leg of the 220v ele. supply has tripped. All thats working, works off of one leg. The elements need both legs to heat. Find your breaker for the oven, reset breaker. It may look ok, but flip the breaker off and then back on. This should fix it.
