Hi all, I have an issue with my electric cooker and electric hob. I switched both off at the mains on the wall and now both are not working when I try to switch it on. I have checked the main electric box under the stairs which has not tripped. I was wondering if it may require a new MCB in the cooker slot on the box under the stairs or if it may be a loose connection on the wall switch.

Many thanks
Darren

:welcomeuhm:

When you say "will not switch on" are there normally any clocks or anything that should light up but are not lighting up?

Thanks Only Me, yes when I switch it on normally the clocks light up, but there is nothing and appears to be no power going to the cooker or hob. The hob and oven are integrated.

Not saying it's not that, but as likely to be an internal connection IMO.
Sometimes if there's a dicky switch or connection on high load gear, then the indicator will light until the load (oven /hotplates) is turned on. The indicator lights will go out then.

Could be several things... oven and hob are separate (though integrated) as I understand it and neither working ? both on the same switch???
