Oven element replacement- Simpson eziset electric

I believe the element has blown on the base of my oven. There is a hole where the element appears to have cracked open so Im going to try and replace this myself. I have purchased the new element and had a brief look at the set up inside the oven- can anyone give me a general idea on how I might go about this? Do I have to access the elements from the back of the oven? Is it a case of just unscrewing old elements and screwing in new ones?

Hiya
firstly make sure the power is isolated before removing any panels.
sometimes the element will just screw out from the inside of the oven and should pull through into the oven compartment with the wires attached, simply remove the wires, replace the element and refit any panels.

hope this helps

please dnt forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

I have a 'Simpson 2001 Thermaflow Oven' and a few months ago, i was heating it up, and i heard a pop, from then on my oven has not heated up, i cannot seem to find what is wrong with it!! Please...


I would say that the oven element has blown. It is common especially if you have a fan forced model. Make sure the fan works before you go buying a new element as the replacement will fail early. Simpson ovens have to be removed from the wall cavity to replace the fan and the element. Make sure you tuen the power off before doing anything...
Give the parts supplier your model number so that you get the fight element ( and fan) if necessary.

Test element check for continuity across the terminals and it is getting power when switch onon. If both ok, chances are the front selector switch has blown.

Replace element or just buy a new wall oven?


It is a straightforward job to replace the element, a ,lot cheaper than buying a new oven, it is quite common for these to blow, and does not mean that there is anything else wrong with the oven.
Please rate my solution./
Thanks.

SMEG SA410X-S heat not coming on for fan forced cooking. The fan and light work, and the heat works fine for grilling.


The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch. If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.

It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
