Re: Hotpoint EG900X rear round heating element
If the fan is working, but there is no heat from rear element, then the element needs replacing.
Remove inner rear cover of oven, you will see the element there, remove, and replace.

Assuming you are talking about the fan oven element, you should be able to feel heat from it , if you are not sure it is working, then you need to remove the rear cover of oven to expose the fan and the element, run it for a couple of minutes, then feel if it is hot, if not, it needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps.
If you have aHOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems. 1, If thefanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter. To gain access to theHOTPOINTelementyouwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan andelement,if you look closely at theelementyou will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but theelement is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.
2, If yourHOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your ovenfanmotoris working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but thefanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the ovenfanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved. 3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace yourHOTPOINToventhermostat
4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if yourHOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oventimer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
If the fan is working, but there is no heat, then it is the fan oven element that needs to be replaced.
It has nothing to do with timer on this occasion.
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the round element.
Undo fixing screws,and remove element, disconnect leads and fit onto new element, refit new elemrnt, replace cover, and 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.
