    The live connections should be linked together, as indeed so should the neutrals......often you can see the brass links.
    Is the cooker totally dead? Often enough the clock has to be set before the thing will work.

    Hi,
    I have bought the same cooker, and very confused about wiring it.

    I bought it used, the seller has given me the cable as well. When I tried to connect it in the cooker, I noticed that the Live brown cable is longer than the blue one, and it seems to be connected before in the position 4, which is according to the manual should be connected to neutral one (blue) see picture.

    So my question is it possible that the seller was connecting the brown to neutral, and blue to live connection?

    Could that work?

    Can't tell anything from that blurred pic. but it appears you have a wiring diagram stuck to the cooker. Connect it as the diagram says.
    In answer to your question reversing the polarity will probably not stop it working but it should be connected properly.
