    Default Cooker timer wiring

    The cooker door latch broke & access to it was via the side panel.
    To remove the side panel, both the front & back also had to come off.
    Whilst changing the door latch, the control panel dropped from it position & 3 of the 4 wires came off the timer display & i have no idea where they originated.
    I have been googling it all afternoon & found no wiring info at all.
    Can anyone help ?
    The display unit is a Hotpoint/Ariston electric cooker same as this one>

    Without knowing too much about it I would say there will be 4 loose wires to connect. The incoming supply looks like it goes to CN1 and CN2 - doesn't matter which way, they are both labelled L/N, and the element to RL2, again not important as to orientation, then plug the unit back onto the pins.

    If you have a meter, and feel competent to do it, you could identify the supply and element. The supply will obviously be 240v and the element will show a resistance.

    Hope this makes sense.

    This
    Spoiler:
    video shows a similar arrangement on a hoover cooker. You will note that the live is commoned on this model - one crimp has 2 wires in it - this will be the live. It will go to one of the CN1/CN2 and one of the relay connections.

    The issue with that is the replacement control unit is 90.
    and putting 240v into an incorrect connection will most likely pop the control board and may even damage the cooker.

    I wouldnt risk it personally but maybe ask a hotpoint engineer on Facebook if you can find one?

    If the 240 is connected across the relay nothing will happen. It will be open circuit when de-energised. This can be checked with a meter across the 2 flag terminals by the relay.

    I have yet to try it, but going by the replies, this is my best educated guess.
    The red wire to the relay (top right) is definitely correct as that is the only one that didnt come off.
    None of the wires have continuity to each other.
    The only continuity on the board are the 2 Relay connections (on the right of pic)

    Therefore i have put the 2nd red (possibly feed) wire to the L/N connector (left of board)
    The Black/Blue which im assuming is Neutral to the other L/N connector (left of board)
    and the remaining white wire to the remaining connector on the relay. (Right of board)

    Not sure which way round the 2 on the left should go (Red & blue/black) or if it makes a difference.

    Doesn't matter which way, they are both labelled as L/N
