    Yesterday I had a "spring clean" done in my flat - I have a wall to wall carpet and several things which needed specialist cleaning.
    The woman doing the cleaning has turned off most electric devices when cleaning the flat, all radiators were unplugged and so on. But now I can't get my oven to work. There is a "main switch" for the kitchen which I had to turn back on, otherwise I don't know what to change.
    I have bought groceries and was preparing a great meal today, and the oven doesn't switch on. The light doesn't go on and there is no heat. I have emailed the cleaning company but obviously they're closed now.

    It's super frustrating!! The lamb and potatoes are all done, I'm so hungry and this thing doesn't work.

    Anyone have a clue about electronics? Is there something specific which has to be switched on for the oven to work?

    There is either an oven isolator or a fused spur somewhere in the kitchen. Probably behind something else.

    A spur looks like this:

    Yes, I have that, I have already switched it back on. It still doesn't work.

    The plates on top works, just not the oven.

    I know my cooker has a little clock built in and when the electric has been switched off this resets itself. The over then won't work until the timer/clock has been reset, even though the hobs do still work.

    Yeah our oven is like this, gas hobs and grill work but not the oven if someone screws with the time, see if there's some way to set the time on it or turn off it's requirement for a clock.
