If you got a fan assisted oven that has failed with a significant short it can also cause the Oven Selector switch to fail. This can primarily identified with the oven going bang, or the house hold circuit breaker tripping each time you turn on the oven.
Before you try to diagnose the problem further ensure that the power to device is off by locating and switching off the isolator switch. Normally found near to the appliance on the wall.
The Oven Selector switch can by located by removing the hotplate of the oven, this can be done by locating and removing the screws around the top and adjacent sides of the appliance. With these screws removed, you should be able to safely hinge the hotplate up and identify the oven selector switch. Be minded that the hotplate generally only hinges up at around 45 degrees.
With the oven selector switch located, if you identify scorching on the part or surrounding wires, it is an indication that this part has failed and needs replacing. Be minded that the Thermoset and Oven element should be checked as they have may have also failed in the process.
