It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed which caused the house fuse to trip.
The replace the heating element will mean taking the back off the oven and removing the old heat element by undoing the fixing screws and the electrical connectors( normally this surrounds the fan assembly).
Fitting the new heat element should then be straight forward.
Remember to disconnect the power to the oven before removing the back.
Sounds as if your oven heating element has failed. You need to fit a new one.
Usually you have to get the back off, disconnect the old element, remove the fixxing screws and element, fit new one, reconnect and it should be fixed. Don't forget to switch the power off before starting work.
If the fan is working o/k, but there is no heat, then it is more than likely the element that has failed again.
The fact that you had it replaced a year ago, does not mean tha it will last a long tiime, it is quite common for them to fail in a relatively short space of time.
Take my advice and fit a new element.
If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown
The element is where you said and yes it can be replaced without removing the oven. Remove the bacplate from inside the oven and you will see the element and fan. Remove the screws from the element and gently pull it forward then remove the 2 wires and keep hold whilst you fit the new element. Replace screws in the element refit the backplate job done.
The oven fan element has failed, you need to fit a new one.
Remove inner rear panel of oven and you will see the round element at rear.Unscew screw(s) that secure element, disconnect leads, and fit new element.
Refit element cover.
Make sure you have power off to oven before you start.
