Default Re: Oven not heating

-I would say the same thing as the guys above. Dry out your oven and at least put a tarp over the oven in the rain.
-You could of gotten rain inside the oven, under the floor in the insulation. Give it a long slow fire and see if that helps.

"It would be too late now, but a slight slope to the outside also helps in draining this water away from the base of the oven."

David has a good point. Concrete is very porous and hard to keep sealed. If possible, grind the flat exposed part of your suspended slab so that you have positive drainage away from the dome.
