Question about Ovens
I have a Baumatic 2450SS cooking theatre oven which has a blown base element.
I have acquired a replacement base element and was hoping to replace it.
However, it looks like the screws that hold the existing element to the back wall of the oven have had been shaved down so that I cannot unscrew them.
Is there any way that I am going to be able to replace the element? I'd rather not spend £700 on a new oven right now.
You would have to figure a way to get those screws out.
I'm not a mechanic, but I did have to replace an element for a friend. Is there some way to use something with a magnet that it would attach to in order to remove the screws?

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

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./

By the way that you have described it this is right things that i have learned is be careful taking out the screws i have seen them strip out or break and dont tighten them too much once it is snug turn it 1/4 turn more
also clean the area that it connects to really well so it does not short out the new element and Please do not forgett to unplug the oven ok
hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards michael
