Hey there, Shouldn't be too difficult. Just two nuts to remove. If unsure about reconnecting wiring, draw yourself a little diagram clearly indicating the colours. Let me know if you are having further problems.

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.

Hi.. We recently moved house and after unpacking our LG it started making funny rattling noises. looked inside and the Grill in the top was loose. one glass tube above it broke. Can I have this replaced?...


You are quite right. The element will probably earth to the chassis and take out your mains power trip not to mention the glass fragments that may fall inside the oven.
Changing the element is straight forward. They come as a pair of glass tubes and after a bit of bending on the top of the case to release the clips fit easily.
Hope that helps.

My bosch oven grill element is not working and my oven does not seem to be getting as hot as it should. any ideas what it could be.


More than likely the grill element has failed, and this could account for the oven not getting hot enough, as on some makes, the grill element is on at the same time as the oven element, so if the element has failed, then it will not be hot enough.
My advice would be fit a new grill element, and this hopefully will solve the problem of the oven not being hot enough.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Oven fan works but no heat- grill works fine i suppose its the resistance- where is it and how do i change it?


It will be the oven element that has failed.
It is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover which will give you access to the element.
It is a straight forward job to replace.

Thankyou.

Fan in main oven boken


Sounds as if your oven heating element has failed. You need to fit a new one.

Usually you have to get the back off, disconnect the old element, remove the fixxing screws and element, fit new one, reconnect and it should be fixed. Don't forget to switch the power off before starting work.

Oven problem


Check that the solar plus grill element is working properly by selecting full grill, the whole element should heat up, if only half element heats up , then you need to fit a new grill element complete.
If the grill element is o/k , then it is possible the top oven base element is faulty, to check that is working, put top oven on and after a few minutews feel the base of the top oven, and it should be hot to the touch if it is not, then the base element has probably failed , and you will need to fit a new one.
These are the possible reasons for it to heat up slowly.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I want to replace the top grill element in a zanussi zhq 575


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.
