Question about Ovens
My oven stopped working on the fan bake setting. I removed the circular element that fits around the fan, bought a replacement and have tried to install it. There is a main slide-on connection to each end of the element, plus an extra connection at one end (earth?). I connected the new element in the same way as the old one -- I think. When I turned the power back on and turned the oven to fan bake, the stove switch in the fusebox flipped its power off. What have I done wrong?

Visually inspect the element for any kind of rupture on the shield covering the element. If it looks good the next step is the wire connections at the back of the element. Most likely is has a burnt wire.You will have to pull the back cover off to check this.

It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.
