Re: how to replace grill element
Only the obvious ones, make sure the power is off and the oven is cool. Remove screws and pull straight out. Replacement element should look same/similar to the old one. Replacement element will likely smoke the first time it is powered up

The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick
after isolating electric. remove oven from housing ( 2 or 4 screws) remove back of appliance to access retaining nuts .( disconnect wires noting terminal position). grill is fixed to roof of oven with screws remove these and take out grill. refit in reverse order remember to reconnect wires .
This would appear to be the ring element around the fan that has failed and will need to be replaced.You will need to power off unit,then remove the back panel inside oven 4 screws in corners,Be careful with Thermostat held in place by clips above or on back panel.You may find 3 or 4 screws holding ring element.Gently pull towards you,being careful that the cables come with it.Check element with multimeter to see if open circuit if its ok then it may be a thermostat fault.If it is a faulty element,
get your replacement element,remove the cables off old one and put onto new one.Then push back into place and refix all.
Most likely you have a faulty fan element- this is a round element that goes around the fan at the back. To check- Disconnect from power(easiest way is to switch off oven at fuse board). Remove rear panel inside oven (held on by screws), and visually check element- often you will see a blow mark on the element. Element is easily changed, although sometimes requires oven to be removed to access element wires from the back. Proceed if you are a confident DIYer, otherwise call a local service agent. Elements are readily available for $75-$125 depending on the retailer. Can give further advice if you provide a model number. Good luck!!

screw at top of element is for support.. there are either 2 screws at the rear of element bracket holding it or access to behind the rear panel is required as there are 2 nuts holding the grill bracket to rear cavity. please make sure power has been disengaged before attemt to repair..
You need to check the heating element for continuity and the thermistor for continuity. Use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check.The element should not be any reading over 24 ohms for a 220-250V supply and not over 12 ohms for a 110Vac supply. A good tip is to take digital photos of the job before starting on removing and testing wiring etc so that you can refer back to it if you have to replace any items or forget which wires attach to any particular terminal etc. To test and replace the element:
Turning off the mains power to the oven.
Remove the lower back panel. Fan assisted ovens will have a coiled 2 or 3 turn element around the outside of the fan.
Remove the 2 power connectors to the grill element if one is fitted.
Check the element resistance reading on the main oven heating element and not the grill element.
The thermistor or fusible link is located on top of the oven cavity if fitted and has two wires attached to it - most likely to be red and black or both white wires.
Remove the earthing wire to the main oven heating element screw terminal.
Unscrew the grill element securing screws(s) - there will be 1 or 2 depending on the element fitted to your oven. Do this from inside the oven cavity itself.
Refit the new element (make sure it has the same mounting screw holes as the one you want to remove) then secure it.
Reconnect the earthing wire to the element screw post.
Make sure that neither of the element tags touch the chassis - check with a continuity tester of ohm meter and adjust if required.
Reconnect the power cables to the main oven heating element.
Reconnect the power cables to the grill element if one is fitted.
Reconnect the power and check that the element works correctly.
Disconnect the mains power again and replace the rear panel(s).
Reconnect the mains power and recheck that the oven, and if appropriate the grill, functions correctly.
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.
