Hello, My cooker (LOGIK LFTC60W16 oven with grill and 4 hobs had it maybe just over 2 years) stopped working about 2 weeks ago. I found out we have no cooker switch on the kitchen wall so checked the Circuit Breaker box. Everything was on. With no other option I left the cooker MCB switch in the off position and 2 days later I went back and 2 days later and turned it on and the cooker was working again for about 3-5 mins later the cooker lights saying it was on started flickering and it died again. I went back to the circuit breaker turn it off again and back on and it still would not work. I decided to leave the cooker MCB off for a whole week and turned it back on and again the cooker was working! Oven hobs and grill would all get hot. It was on for 10 mins and was fine. I went back a hour later and had it on for 3 mins and it was fine and then went back 2 hours later and again it wouldn’t turn on. Is there any idea of whats broken or in need of repair/replacement?

Could be anything. A bad connection could also give a fault like that. Find yourself an appliance repair person (not necessarily an electrician) and let them discover the problem.

i can fix that. no job too much for this cookie. give me a pm and i'll saddle the horse.
 
Hi Andrew, please in future for anything similar do not under any circumstances keep turning MCB on that keeps tripping. Obviously the circuit is not healthy somewhere and it's not like you can give it a rest and try again.....it can create bigger problems.
As suggested it could be something electronic PCB or fried wiring under hood.

How often have you had it on full whack in the two years you've had it?

Have you checked the elements are sound?

Thats the thing though. The MCB hasnt been tripping. That stays on no matter what.

Its only been used for about 45 mins max a day and not even daily.

Elements seem fine. Like I said when I got it on today it seemed to work fine...oven, grill and hobs all heated fine.

Is their any way I can test if its that?
Only if you gave an oscilloscope, a circuit diagram and a PHD in electronics theory.

It maybe a simple connection problem on the electrics side, or a fault with the cooker. You need a functionary to eliminate the obvious.
