Re: Replacing the element in a diplomat 5706 cooker
You will probably have to remove the rear panel of the oven, this is on the outside that I am referring to, and you will see the 2 securing scews for the element, you might have to push the insulation to one side to see the screws.
This should solve your problem.
Please good feedback if this helps.

That is complete RUBBISH the screws are accessible from the rear of the oven. At the back remove the screws holding the plate and you will see the element housing. Remove the two screws and the spade connections. Get someone to hold the new element in place for you and attached the screws. Fiddly job so be patient. Connect the spade connections and replace all plates front and rear. Should be the job!!! Someone hold the element in the cooker whilst someone connects at the back. Whatever you do, DON'T TAKE A DRILL TO YOUR COOKER!!
It is going to be a faulty oven element.
Remove the cover at the rear of the oven compartment, and see if there is a round heater element there, if there is, then it will be the element that needs to be replaced.
If no element there, then it will be either the top element of the oven , or rhe base element which is not visible, that is faulty.
If there is base element, then it can only be accessed from outside of the main oven by removing the outer panels, and is located at the bottom of the main oven.
Hope this helps.
make sure the oven is switched off.remove all trays etc from oven,remove 2 posidrive screws from bottom of fan plate,remove fan plate,the element is around the fan,remove 2 posi screws from where the element goes through the side of oven and the one screw that holds the top of the element to the back of the oven.slowly pull the element out and remove the 2 poz and neg spade connectors.refit as removed.
If the red light is coming on when you turn on the oven control then the thermostat is ok.You will need to remove the grids from inside the oven then remove the inside rear panel 4 screws, be carreful not to damage the thermostat as you remove the panel.When you have removed panel you will see the ring element,now remove the 3 screws holding in the element and gently pull it towards you,remove the 2 cables off element but do not let them fall into the back of cooker or you will have to remove the cooker and gain access to the rear of the cooker.Once you have element check with a multi-meter for continuity and replace if blown. Relacement is a reverse of removal.
If there is no slot for a screwdriver or cross point screwdriver, then, yes, it will be secured from the outside of the oven.
It will mean removing the rear panel, and possibly the top as well.
Hope this helps.
You need to replace the element. Very easy job remove the back plate from inside the oven (4 screws) and you will see a circular element held in place by one screw in the centre of the fixing plate. Remove the fixing screw then remove two wires and refit new element job done.
If you can see the element once you have removed the inside rear panel, then remove any screws that you can see, and ease the element forward, pull the wires off, but do not let them slip behind the rear wall of the oven, or it means removing the whole oven, to fit the wires back on.
If you cannot see the screws, or they are fastened from the rear, then it will have to come out of the housing.
Hope this helps.
