Replace Baumatic oven base element

I have a Baumatic 2450SS cooking theatre oven which has a blown base element.

I have acquired a replacement base element and was hoping to replace it.

However, it looks like the screws that hold the existing element to the back wall of the oven have had been shaved down so that I cannot unscrew them.

Is there any way that I am going to be able to replace the element? I'd rather not spend £700 on a new oven right now.

You would have to figure a way to get those screws out.
I'm not a mechanic, but I did have to replace an element for a friend. Is there some way to use something with a magnet that it would attach to in order to remove the screws?

firstly make sure the power is isolated before removing any panels.
sometimes the element will just screw out from the inside of the oven and should pull through into the oven compartment with the wires attached, simply remove the wires, replace the element and refit any panels.

hope this helps

SOURCE: replace element or just buy a new wall oven?

It is a straightforward job to replace the element, a ,lot cheaper than buying a new oven, it is quite common for these to blow, and does not mean that there is anything else wrong with the oven.
Please rate my solution./

SOURCE: I need to replace baking element on model

Hello there:
By the way that you have described it this is right things that i have learned is be careful taking out the screws i have seen them strip out or break and dont tighten them too much once it is snug turn it 1/4 turn more
also clean the area that it connects to really well so it does not short out the new element and Please do not forgett to unplug the oven ok
hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards michael

Why has baumatic B501SS oven covered in light gray coating inside when heated, now not working

It sound like the heating element burned out. Check the element and see if there is a burned spot or blister somewhere along the element. If so the element will need replacing.

Bottom oven not working

A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.

Baumatic b180 oven

The oven cabinet is likely built for several different models, which means that the case could have been built with an extra hole or two that aren't used on your model. This a normal manufacturing technique for mass-product factories. I see from the Baumatic website that several of their models do use a meat thermometer probe, but even if you bought a probe you couldn't use it your oven. Your model doesn't have the correct circuit board and control panel that the oven needs to use the probe. In any case, if you need to order parts from the manufacturer or would like a downloadable Owners Manual for your model, they are available at this website link: Hope that helps! ;)

Fan assist wont heat oven

the ring element may have blown. if it works ok with the top and bottom elements, (the convection oven) then it is likely the element surrounding the oven fan.
