The timer must be working and must be in manual mode for the oven to operate. If the timer is blank it is probably faulty and you will need a new timer. If you don't need the timer/clock the timer can be by-passed inside the oven by someone who knows what their doing and the oven will work no problems.

I have a Zamussi ZUQ875 double oven. I have just replaced the bottom oven element after it went bang. Nothing tripped out but the digital display has gone out and cannot get main oven to work because

i suspect that you did cut power to the oven when you replaced the element. therefore the oven needs to be reset as new. there are quite a few pages of instructions on setting the timer so be prepared if you are going to to proceed with this "little" project.
I was able to locate your manual online here:

I suggest unplugging it for a few minutes...then plugging it back in. Hopefully if the electrical is good you will see the oven's timer flashing. then you can proceed with the instructions from page 7.
Otherwise, you may have a blown a short and should get a licensed electrician to look at it.
Another option would be to contact the

Or, find the bloke that installed it and invite him over for dinner and maybe he'll notice it's not working and will fix it for free! ;-)
Good luck mate!

I have a New World Twinline 4000 double oven which is approx 15 years old. The progammer has developed a fault and I cannot set the clock, therefore the oven won't switch on. Is this repairable because...

You need to take the timer out of the circuit (you will only be able to run the oven without timer).
1. Switch off the mains or disconnect the oven from mains.
2. Pull out the 5 buttons of timer. Might need to apply a bit of force but they should come out fairly easily.
3. Pull the two temperature adjustment knobs out.
4. The glass decorative plate is attached with some sort of clamps so if you pull it off the oven it should come off as well.
5. Take out the 3 screws on top of the oven above the wireing. You should be able to bend the metal panel up a bit.
6. Take out the 3 screws that secure the side panel by the front panel. You should bend the panel out here as well.
7. Now you should be able to see inside behind the timer unit. There are two clamps on each side of timer that keep it in place. From behind they can be pressed in so the timer can be pulled out towards the front.
8. Once done take a look at the wires that go into the timer unit. There are four: A, B, C, D. Disconnect all but make sure you mark them which is which.
9. You will not need wire A and B so put insulating tape on the metal connectors and let them hanging loose. The are the power source of the timer.
10. Cut the connectors off of wire C and D, and solder them together. Then put insulating tape over the bare soldered wire. The timer is now cut out of the circuit and can only be switched on/off by the temperature adjusting knob.
11. Tuck the wires back into the appliance making sure they are loose and well placed, possibly far from the oven side.
12. Lock the timer back in place if you want. It is going to be a dead weight doing nothing so it is not necessary to put it back.
12. Assemble the coverings in reverse order as described above.

You should be a working oven now with the annoying bit removed and being better off a few hundred quid.

My GE wall Oven Model #jctp18ba1bb is not working.the board is blankm the only thing that works is the oven light.Is there any kind of thermal fuses etc. in this oven.thge control board was replaced 8...

When you say board I assume you mean the electronic clock/timer. This timer directly affects the oven operation. Even if the internal oven fuse is blown or the thermal overload is tripped the electronic timer and oven light will always work. If the oven light works and the electronic timer/clock does not I'd say that the timer/clock is faulty.

Automatic button on lower oven

This is how I reset my U1420NOGB/FD7907 NEFF double electric oven that I inherited also without an instruction book.
There are 4 buttons in a row and then a timer knob that moves left and right.The first button is black,second has an arrow,,third has an arrow and fourth a hand symbol on it.Hold down together, the black button and the arrow button next to it.Without releasing either,twist the timer knob clockwise(to the right)until correct time is showing.Do not release the other buttons at all ,until time is ok.If you miss correct time keep going ,dont go backwards.When time is correct,,release black and arrow buttons and auto will stop flashng ,and oven work.If auto doesn,t stop flashing at this point press the button with hand symbol (manual)on it once.
