Are you referring to the actual fan and light inside the oven?
Also what is the model of the cooker?

You say you put a fresh bit of 6mm in? from where to where?? is there a hardwired connection plate on the back of cooker?

It will be a foreign cooker and when it was disconnected there would have been a copper link between 2 or 3 other terminals, which u will be able to see in the terminal box.
The N is a common one usually, and if you cannot find the copper link, use the 6mm or supply cable and make the links out of that, but its awkward as theres not a lot of room to do it and make sure the clamps are good after as sometimes the terminal clamp on 2x 6mm are not brilliant, double check .

so you reckon that will be the problem? i just need to link out the neutral to the other terminal as the same as the live?

On hotpoint cookers (made by Indesit) the links are normaly as follows 1,2&3 to live..4&5 to Neutral.
