SOURCE: Broken oven
First, verify it is the problem. (A working element has a conductive core, or wire, all the way through it). If the core wire is broken, it is defective. To verify it is broken, use an Ohmmeter - if value is above 500 Ohms the core is likely broken. Replace it.
To test without an Ohm meter, use a flashlight bulb and flashlight batteries, some wire and run the loop through the element. If bulb lights, core is ok.
If broken, take it in to any small appliance store as most oven elements are VERY similar. Likely they will have one in stock. They will be cheaper than over the internet.

If the element has failed again in such a short time , then I would suspect that the fan is the culprit.
If the fan is not working, then the element overheats, and burns itself out.
The fact that the fan spins freely, proves nothing, as the fan can be still faulty.
The only way to prove if the fan is faulty, is to remove the oven from the housing, and remove the rear outer panel of oven,.test with a meter set to ac mains and test the fan motor terminals to see if there is power there when oven is set to heat, disconnect the element first. ,if there is ,and the fan is not running then the motor is faulty..
If there is no voltage there, then problem is elsewhere, and you will have to investigate furher.
Plz rate my solution.

There should be two screws at the inside back of oven. However, once you have the new element look for the holes in the new one

If fan is working o/k, then you need to fit a new oven element

Testimonial: "Possibly looking for a bit more info. My manual talks about top and bottom elements. I take it the grill is the top element."
You have to gain access to the element by removing the outer rear panel of oven, if it is built in, then this means removing it from the housing.
Once you have removed the cover, and possibly the top panel, you will see how the element is fitted.
It is a fairly straight forward repair to do.
Please rate my solution.
