Replacing Grill element

Can anyone tell me, if I unscrew the old element for the grill will the connectors pull through so I can attach the new element, or do I have to remove the cooker from the unit and go in through the back? Thank You

Hello...The wires should pull thru...But be careful not to let them drop back in...If they do....you will have to go in thru the rear to retrieve them and that will be a hassle...when you replace the element..do it one wire at a time if possible but DO NOT let the wires drop back in...Let me know...I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

SOURCE: cleaning above the grill element

I would not advise you to remove the element unless you feel competent to do so.
Best thing to do is to put the grill full on and let all the fat and grease burn itself off.
you will not hurt anything by doing this.
Make sure you have the griil door open and your house door.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.

SOURCE: Smoke comes out of grill on electric cooker

hi, what you will probably find is that the grill over time has got grease on it and other contaminents from food you have cooked in the past the best thing to do is turn the grill on full and let the smoke burn out open windows etc as it will stink the whole place out it may take a while to get hot but just wait leave it on full and you should find it will burn off all the grease etc and then it will stop smoking.

If you turn it on full and then you get nothing happen after about 10min then turn it off and you would then need to think about getting the element replaced.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Grill element - 3 connectors, which one is earth?


The earth connector will be the one that is on the left of the element in the picture and the tag that is connected to the metal case of the element which LOOKS like the upper one. The central core is the heating element and it doesn't matter which is positive of negative as it is a simple circuit.

your first link is broken.

Zanussi built in oven and grill the element has gone but dont know how to get element out to replace any ideas thanks


Hello,
If you mean the fan element then take all the racks out of oven and at the back is a panel with 4 screws remove may need a tap with hammer and screwdriver to shock rust etc. then undo screws on element maybe 3 screws pull gently forward(electric off).Try to pull the spade connectors off without losing them into back of oven if you lose them then you will have to take out oven and remove back plate. refit new element.If it was the grill element just follow above and find behind back plate.Hope I helped.

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?


1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

Baumatic oven not heating up. Grill and fan fine.


if it is the b180, the answer (having just fixed this) is really simple.

The coily bit is the oven element - it will have gone. A new one from eBay cost me about 6 quid.
[WHEN IT ARRIVES !]

Turn the power off.
Inside the oven use a philips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws (KEEP THEM !)
You will see a coily thing and a fan.


You unscrew 3 more screws (2 on the left and 1 on the right).
(KEEP THESE TOO!)

now ... bit tricky, have the new one inside the oven and take each wire off one at a time and put it on the new element.

Screw it back on but DONT put the last panel back in.

Turn the oven on maximum for about 2 minutes and see it glow red.

Turn the oven off. Make a cup of tea and have a couple of biscuits while admiring how good you are and waiting for the element to cool down!!!

Put the final panel back in place. Whole thing (including a cup of tea) takes about half an hour.

I need to replace the bottom element in my oven


You need to check the heating element for continuity and the thermistor for continuity. Use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check. The element should not be any reading over 24 ohms for a 220-250V supply and not over 12 ohms for a 110Vac supply. A good tip is to take digital photos of the job before starting on removing and testing wiring etc so that you can refer back to it if you have to replace any items or forget which wires attach to any particular terminal etc.

To test and replace the element:

  1. Turning off the mains power to the oven.
  2. Remove the lower back panel. Fan assisted ovens will have a coiled 2 or 3 turn element around the outside of the fan.
  3. Remove the 2 power connectors to the grill element if one is fitted.
  4. Check the element resistance reading on the main oven heating element and not the grill element.
  5. The thermistor or fusible link is located on top of the oven cavity if fitted and has two wires attached to it - most likely to be red and black or both white wires.
  6. Remove the earthing wire to the main oven heating element screw terminal.
  7. Unscrew the grill element securing screws(s) - there will be 1 or 2 depending on the element fitted to your oven. Do this from inside the oven cavity itself.
  8. Refit the new element (make sure it has the same mounting screw holes as the one you want to remove) then secure it.
  9. Reconnect the earthing wire to the element screw post.
  10. Make sure that neither of the element tags touch the chassis - check with a continuity tester of ohm meter and adjust if required.
  11. Reconnect the power cables to the main oven heating element.
  12. Reconnect the power cables to the grill element if one is fitted.
  13. Reconnect the power and check that the element works correctly.
  14. Disconnect the mains power again and replace the rear panel(s).
  15. Reconnect the mains power and recheck that the oven, and if appropriate the grill, functions correctly.
