When you say "the plug only accommodates live and neutral" do you mean that the cable is just 2 core or is there and earth core there but just not connected in the plug ?
Sometimes appliances have more than 1 earthing point to facilitate installation. Best to pull oven out and trace cable entry point and check the connections there, ie live and neutral and possibly an earth connected
Too many bodge jobs unfortunately without any thought on safety aspects
