    We have a Hoover oven that is probably fairly old (maybe at least 10 years). We moved in a couple of years ago and the oven has tripped the breaker a couple of times but otherwise no issues.

    Today the oven cut out while we were using it. It was still on at the display but the fan and light had gone off and it had stopped putting out heat. We switched it off and back on. It was working again but seemed to be giving off a slightly weird smell for a few minutes.

    We don't want to use it again until we figure out what the fault is. Part of me thinks that we may as well just get a new one as the current one is most likely on its last legs. Is this a reasonable approach or are we better of getting an electrician to come and check everything over?

    For a new Hoover single oven and install it would be 370 quid which doesn't seem too bad.

    At that age I would just replace it with a new oven. The price depends on which oven you choose ,cheaper ones are available ,and so are more expensive ones..!!
