- Is it difficult to replace a fan oven element yourself?
Wot they all said, should be really easy. Check you can easily remove the existing one 1st then order up a replacement. I can utterly recommend the element man linky. Not only a great name which IMO is right up there with extractorfanworld and the ironing maiden as best names for a business ever, also has helpful humans behind the website able to patiently answer the most basic DIY questions.Posted 4 years agoCaptainSlowMember
On mine the element was at the back.
It was as simple as turning off the power (don’t forget that bit…). Remove the 4 screws holding on the backing plate inside the oven. Remove 3 screw holding in the element. Disconnect the element. Put the new element in and screw it all back together.
Turn on the electricity and ask your wife/life partner to test it with the back of their hand 😉
Then, providing it’s working again, test that it gets to the right temp afterwards by either using the sugar melting method or a thermometer (I used sugar).Posted 4 years agooldkit56Member
Hi, replaced the fan motor on girlfriends oven last week.Posted 4 years ago
Built in oven, took less than one hour.
Searched all over the web for a motor then remembered the local appliance spares shop about 400 yards away, got the right one for the job not a universal and cheaper than everywhere else.
Element shouldn’t be a lot more hassle.
Hope this helps.
Cheers Kit 🙂
