Re: keep having to replace element
Not neccesscarily a problem with oven, as it is quite a common fault with fan ovens.
You could make sure that the fan is running properly, and is free to turn, and that the fan blades are not covered in grease etc',
Make sure that oven door seal is o/k, as hot air escaping here will lead to longer running times.

Usually the element is a circular shape which is situated near the fan, normally you will need to remove the back of the oven, Switch off the power at the wall first, locate the element and remove the fixing screws and electrical connections then fit the new element and reconnect.
Only attempt this replacement if you are confident to do so and have a basic electrical and mechanical knowledge.
If you are not fitting genuine
elements, this is probably the reason they are failing so quickly.
You will pay a lot more for the genuine article, but they will last a lot longer.
Also make sure the fan is working o/k, as this can cause premature element failure.

1. Bake or Broil element faulty. The oven cycles these on and off to reach and maintain the average setpoint temperature. If the elements heat poperly during the time they are ON, then they are OK (may be able to see them glow).
2. The temperature sensor probe is faulty. This can cause the oven to think it's hotter than it actually is.
3. The above two causes can be easily diagnosed by a technician with an ohm-meter. If they are both OK, then the problem is in the controller itself. If this is the case you may want to have us repair the controller. We see this fault quite often.
Hope this helps you out. Regards, Bruce www.fixyourboard.com
Switch power off first.
Remove the screws that secure the rear cover in the oven compartment.
There you will see the circular element, undo screws that secure element, slówly withdraw element towards you, disconnect leads, taking care not to lose them behind the aperture., fit leads onto new element, and refit element.
Refit cover and test.

no connection between lights on fan. problem is that bulbs these days are poor quality (but cheap) it is common for these circular elements to go. usually last about 2 years. worth checking tho that fan is turning at right speed
fan oven element has gone. it is a circular element and is located behind the back panel of the oven. some elements can be removed with the oven in place but for many you have to take the oven out and take off the rear casing. whichever, it is not a difficult job. element cost about £30
