    Would you believe it Xmas day and cooker wont work. FFS. Anyway pulled it out and some terminals a bit burnt looking around function switch. Pulling wires about can make it work but not permenantly. Tried squirting WD40 on it and success. Turkey etc cooked albeit a bit late. Today I want to roast a gammon, switch oven on and nowt again. Give up then. Boiled gammon and its now finishing off in Combi Microwave oven on convection function. Hopefully it will turn out OK.
    Funny thing is I was looking on ebay last week for a better one. This one is white and doesnt match and no fan in it so today back on ebay. I have a bid on a stainless steel one that dont come from Currys.............

    Modern cooker switches are shit, tip, select function then temperature, function switches nowadays are made so cheap they melt...

    Dont think you can get anything that simple anymore. Last one we had wouldnt work unless the clock was on so every time a power cut happened, regular round here, you had to find the manual to learn how to set the clock.  God must be upset with me. 1498946960 
    Not found oven yet but someone was selling a new switch so thats on its way for 6 quid.

    Well new switch turned up and looked exactly the same but when I fitted it the knob went on the wrong way and all I could get was grill working. Waste of space then, and the grill anyway. God must be upset with me. 3025408739 Anyway looked on ebay Saturday and spotted an oven in Stamford. Brand new stainless steel fan oven for 25 notes. Well it was brand new 10 years ago but it had sat in his garage that long. Feck me, I got stuff in my garage still in wrapping from more than 10 years ago lol. Hit the buy it now button quicksmart and collected it on Sunday morning. By 6pm it had successfully cooked a nice joint of roast beef. Yum-yum.  God must be upset with me. 294053457
