    Hi All

    Hoping someone can help me out. I have a baumatic electric oven with 4 hobs etc. Yesterday whilst in use the Crabtree breaker tripped. I have had to replace this in the fuse box, since then the hobs work fine but the oven or grill no longer work, neither does the fan come on?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Have you set the clock / timer?

    Sounds silly, but it's a safety feature incorporated in many cookers, so an oven doesn't turn itself back on unexpectedly after a power cut.

    Do you know why the breaker tripped? Could it have been tripped by a failure of the grill or oven?

    elaborate. You have a row of individual switches. What is written on the one that tripped?

    And as tickly t said, set the timer. My gas oven has a minute minder that has the ability to switch off the appliance when the time expires. But for the appliance to start at all on re-power, the clock must be advanced by at least one minute (it doesnt have to be the right time) :LOL:
