My creda built in oven (forgot to bring the model number to work but is about 5 years old) has developed an intermittent fault. Without any use it switches itself on and off randomly. When it is off cutting and reinstating the power appears to make no difference (it remains off). It will power up again only when it is good an ready!
Power is getting to it (the above gas hob always has power to provide sparks) so I am assuming this would be a problem with an overheating sensor. However, when it does come back on I can use the oven without it tripping off (at least for 30 minutes).
Am I correct in assuming that it is a overheating sensor that is a fault here? If so could a fairly competent DIY'er (I have a little background in electronics) buy the correct sensor and replace it?
Thanks for your help.
