Any fault with the cooker is a major inconvenience and a blown element is no exception, so you'll want to get it fixed straight away. Fortunately, our quick finder makes locating the right element for your cooker easy and with next day delivery available you won't be kept waiting. There are two types of elements available:
Genuine replacement cooker elements
A genuine spare part is made by the original manufacturer of the cooker and is designed to work as a 'like for like' replacement.
Pattern replacement cooker elements
A pattern spare part is made by an alternative manufacturer and is designed to work with specific models of cooker. Pattern parts are manufactured to offer a comparable quality to the genuine part.
The fan or grill element can burn out at any time but it always seems to happen at the most inconvenient time. Fortunately it is quite a straight forward repair that most people should be able to complete.
First, you need to check that a blown element is the cause of the fault. A burnt out element is likely if your cooker no longer heats up. There will usually be visual clues of a fault on the element itself. These include signs of burning or spitting on the coils or connectors.
Before buying a replacement, confirm the element is definitely the problem by checking the controls are set properly and the appliance is plugged in. It is also worth checking the circuit breaker has not tripped or the fuse blown.
It's not just the element on the cooker that can need maintenance.

When you've diagnosed the problem with your cooker as a faulty grill or fan element the next step is to replace it. How you go about doing this will depend on the type of cooker you have, the following is general guidance for most electric cookers.
Replacing a fan oven element:
Always remember safety before attempting a repair. Unplug your cooker from the power supply and allow any hot components time to cool down sufficiently.
Locate the faulty element within your cooker and unscrew the mounting bracket which holds the element in place. Pull the element towards you until you can see the connecting wires and disconnect.
Make a note of where the wires attach, as this will help with connecting up the new element. Buy a new element using our quick finder and install by reconnecting the wires and fitting the replacement element into the housing.
