Question about Ovens
The oven has a thermal trip switch behind the back wall of the oven, it is accessed from under the back cover. It is a small plate like part with two terminals attached to it and it may have tripped out. It is attached to the back outside wall of the oven towards the top. Some thermal switches can be reset but most usually have to be changed. They come in different heat ranges, so be sure to match the new switch to the old one. You also need to find out why the switch tripped in the first place - it could be a faulty thermostat etc.
If you are handy you may be able to open the switch and click the little disc out again and reassemble the switch. Make sure to refit the disc the right way around. Ensure that the power to the oven is off or the plug is pulled out before attempting to remove the back cover.
