its a fix more than a solution but you can bypass the clock thus allowing the oven to operate again
unplug at the mains and remove the oven from the housing remove the two fastening screws from the metal lid on the top of the oven ,and remove the lid
you will see the timer back panel with 3 wires coming to it, 2 are black (switching line) and 1 is red (Live feed to timer )
If you pull the connectors from the 2 black wires from the timer board and connect the ends together using a connector block, the timer switch becomes inactive and allows the oven functions to operate again.
you will have no timer functions but its a cheap fix and who uses the timer any way
good luck Andy B
ps if anyone has a set of operating manuals for ths oven i would be glad of a copy

The part that needs replacing is the clock timer.
FIRST: ISOLATE THE CIRCUIT.
The front fascia is held on by three clips. Take off the two knobs and gently pry away the fascia fron the left, right and top centre.
The clock timer is held in by four plastic push clips at the top and bottom about 1cm in from the end. Push them in and pull the timer out.
There are now three wires on push clips attached at the back.
Do not take the colours for granted. On my oven just repaired the Live was Black and the Neutral was Red! The black marked 'C' is the input. The side by the trip switch is the output. The Red goes on the other side.
When the timer trips it causes the circuit between the input and output to break.
You have two options now:
Read the serial number of the timer and try and order it (expensive), swap the cables over.
Carefully run an electrical cable between the push clips on both black cables making sure you leave no exposed wire. Your timer and clock however will never work, the oven just does not care about it anymore.
Note: I am not an oven engineer, I am an electrical engineer in another field and have tested voltages and current and believe this to be safe. I have done this on my own oven.
