    Whether your oven is built in or freestanding, single or double, the first step of the repair is to remove the ‘back-plate’ from inside the fan oven. Elements used to heat fan-assisted ovens are, in most cases, located at the rear, behind the back plate. Back plates vary in how they are fixed in place, but normally they are held by between 2 and 6 screws.

    In most cases there will be no need to remove the oven in order to complete the repair. If the element is simply screwed in place with the screw heads showing then you are in luck. It is just a matter of removing these screws and disconnecting the wires. In these circumstances once the fixing screws have been removed the element will come away from its position. Be careful not to inadvertently pull off the electrical wires that are connected to the element as you pull the element free.

    In some instances manufacturers leave hardly enough wiring which can make it difficult to remove the connections. If you happen to pull off a connection the wire may remain in the rear of the oven and you will have to gain access to the rear.
