Could anyone please tell me if there is a way of bypassing the timer on my gas oven. The panel's only available function is to stop me igniting either the top oven or the bottom. Up until today, I could randomly press all the buttons on the panel, it would bleep and the auto-ignition would work. Is there a simple connector i can detach inside the panel. I'm no electrician but I am competent and skint

 There may be a way to by-pass your timer , but could not just disconnect someting as this would cut all power to the oven(s).  You would need to call a service company to come out to see if it could be by-passed. This is not something you would try yourself.  Pegi

Would need to see your wiring diagram to answer that question. Post it here and I'll review it for you.

ok! I've run the test on pg 24, which worked fine apart from the "auto" LED which may not mean anything as the lower left segment of the first eight was also out (adjacent to "auto"). Ran the second test on pg25 but unfortunately didn't get a single beep (the timer bleeped when i did the first test, so i know it can). Having looked at the wiring diagram, i think i've gone as far as i can without help from you guys. I have fitted electric gates, so i know a little about relays, resistors etc. So i think i am capable of following instructions. A new timer is £160, which is way out of my league. If it is possible, I somehow need to cancel any timer program which may be preventing the gas from flowing to the ovens and then rewire the ignitions so they work with the manual ignition switch.

The manual has a pictorial wiring diagram but not a functional schematic, so it's a little difficult to follow the circuitry.  However, it appears to be a standard spark-assisted ignition system.  There's no silver bullet method of by-passing the timer  without creating and installing a set of discreet switches that serves the same functions as the timer circuit.

So the only way that the valve releasing the gas to the upper and lower ovens can be controlled, is through this panel! Without major refurbishment that is. The ovens spark with the manual ignition but there's just no bloody gas.

That question cannot be answered with absolute certainty without looking at a schematic; however, my guess it that the ERC completes the circuit for the gas valve's bimetal, allowing it to release gas.  Can you visually trace the wires from the gas valve to the ERC?
