    SOURCE: cleaning above the grill element

    I would not advise you to remove the element unless you feel competent to do so.
    Best thing to do is to put the grill full on and let all the fat and grease burn itself off.
    you will not hurt anything by doing this.
    Make sure you have the griil door open and your house door.
    Plz rate my solution.

    Ha - I found the solution myself. You need to remove the 3 screws securing the fan motor. Once you've done this, you can wiggle the fan a few mm, far enough to be able to remove the top element screw.

    SOURCE: Replacement of fan oven element on Nef U1721

    Hi Steve...yes, these are a pain! Remove the centre fan nut (which is anti-threaded) then lever off the small locating washer underneath. If you are lucky, you will be able to now pull the fan blade off of the motor shaft. However, very often they won't budge!. If you try to knock it off, it is so easy to damage the fan motor (about £80!!). It is possible to leave the top bracket screwed to the oven and unclamp the element from it. I have come across three different typed of clamps so far. One is very easy to do. You can then remove the clamp from the new element and once the element is in place, use the old clamp. It's a fiddle but quite do-able. I have also come across these where the top clamp has been previously removed altogether by engineers on previous repairs! Hope this all helps a little....

    Fan and element not working

    hi not sure if you've had a reply but when my zanussi main oven stopped working i just changed the element (purchased from e bay).
    open oven door and the back you will see 4 screws(basically 4 corners) remove these screws and you will see the element, pretty straight forward to remove, obviously fan wont work until you have heat (hopefully fan ok) you can give this a go, cheaper than buying a new oven. i have done this twice. hope this helps.

    All oven grill and fan elements dead

    The oven will not warm if the clock is not set as the main oven is directly linked to it. You may want to check your wiring to the element you have changed as all elements use the same neutral path, meaning if you missed a wire off (especially if you pulled it out through the oven cavity) or have put them on the wrong tab it won't work. It could also be a duff element (the new one).Let me know if you need any further help.

    Fan oven element

    The test is fairly straight forward: Make sure the unit is off. Generally, there is a screw which holds the element in place near the connector. Remove it and the element will slide out. Now, use a resistance (Ohm) meter and measure the resistance across the terminals. If the unit is visibly damaged or you get no reading (use the 1 K ohm scale), change out the element. If the unit tests good, suspect the control or the wiring from the control to the element.

    Fan and grill works but not heating up

    If the fan is working o/k, then you need a new fan oven element fitting.
    Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, undo any screws you can see to remove rear cover.
    disconnect element taking care not to loose wires, and fit new element. test before you refit rear cover.

    Fan oven not heating, bosch hbn 202t

    the fan oven element is separate from the grill element. the problem is that the circular element round the fan is blown. remove the back panel of the oven and you will see the element. replacement is easy. on most bosch, the element is removable from inside the oven but for some you have to remove the oven and take off the back casing
