I have replaced my element in my Zanussi 7700x model. I had to remove the back cover as it was to difficult to do from inside. But just as I am about to put the back cover on after finishing the jobI, Ive spotted a green wire hanging and not connected to anything. It does have one of the connecter attached tho the end so I presume it goes somewhere. can anyone help me.

Re: Zanussi 7700x help
If you try the oven ,and everything seems to work o/k, then I would conclude that it is an earth wire that is disconnected.
In itself it will not effect the oven , but it does need to be connected to a convenient earth point or ground as it is sometimes called.
If the oven or one of it's functions does not work, then it is obviously anwire that controls something.

you usually have to remove a couple screws from the back panel to get to the element and in others u can remove it from within if u look inside u should be able to see if it has a screw holding it. and the connecting plugs can be removed from the element
You should be able to remove the element without removing the oven. Open the door and remove the back panel, normally 4 screws. This will expose the element. Then it should be 3 or so screws holding the element to the frame, remove these and slowly pull the element towards you carefully, then remove the 2 wires from behind and make sure they don't fall back into the oven as you will need to remove the back panel to get them. Then reverse process to install new element. Hope this helps.
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 you mean the fan element then take all the racks out of oven and at the back is a panel with 4 screws remove may need a tap with hammer and screwdriver to shock rust etc. then undo screws on element maybe 3 screws pull gently forward(electric off).Try to pull the spade connectors off without losing them into back of oven if you lose them then you will have to take out oven and remove back plate. refit new element.If it was the grill element just follow above and find behind back plate.Hope I helped.
If it is a fan assisted electric oven and the fan is working o/k, and the temp indicator lamp is lit, then you need to replace the oven element, located at rear of oven compartment behind removeable cover.

Hi, its likely that the fan motor isn't working. (most times is just build up of grease) If you're good with DIY, remove the inside panel that covers the element and the fan, undo he nut CLOCKWISE, pull the oven out, remove the the back cover, remove wiring from fan motor, clean the motor with WD40, and give it a few turns to see if turns freely. Reserve the process.
You need to replace a faulty main oven element.
This is done by removing the rear cover in the main oven,
there you will see the element, disconnect and replace.
It is not a difficult job , and is not too expensive.
Plz frate my solution.
Regardless of wether it is built in or free standing you will have to remove the rear panel, possibly the top cover as well.
The element may be fastened from the inside of the oven .or on the outside at the rear, depending on which way the screws have been fixed.
Undo the fixing screws, disconnect the wires taking note of the connections ,this is very important, and withdraw the element from inside the oven.
Fit new element in reverse order, it is a fairly straight forward repair to do..
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.
It is the oven element that has failed
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, just undo any screws that you can see and pull the element towards you, carefully detach the wires, but don't loose them inside or you will have remove the oven to get the wires back on.
Fit new element and Bob's your uncle ,you've cracked it.
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
The fan element was not working, bought one on ebay replaced it works ok now. Fairly easy to fix remove inside back cover, 4 screws, you will see the element remove 3 screws pull out element pull off 2 connectors careful not to lose the wires back through the holes. replace in reverse order.
