Unplug the power cable from the existing socket and put it into another socket. If the machine starts working, you must change the socket. You should also check the condition of the plug to ensure that wires are properly connected and the fuse is still working. If you suspect that the power cord is damaged, you must replace the cable completely. This should solve the problem with your machine. However, if the machine does not work, then there must be a major problem with the electrical connections inside the machine. In such situations, it is best to get help from an appliance service company.

Before you call a technician, you should check the fuse and wires of the oven. If any wire needs soldering, do it immediately and check whether the problem is solved. Also, make sure there are no loose parts in the machine.
