Question about Ovens
Checked Power supply & breakers OK
Checked Fuses- all ok.
Was working & just stopped.
Now need to open up. Where would be an obvious place for a cable failure?
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.
