    Electric oven 12th Jan 18 at 6:44 PM
    It may be a long shot but I will ask anyway.
    A couple of days ago my mothers electric oven stopped working, the oven was not getting hot. So I have replaced the element and still no luck. the fan is turning and the grill gets hot bit the oven does not. Any ideas what could be the issue before she calls an someone out to look at it?

    Is it this one

    £155 for a replacement. Circa £95 + parts for a call out?

    If the element was replaced correctly (no reason to suppose it wasn't) then I would be looking at the thermostat. If you turn it slowly can you hear it click? Next would be the wiring from the switch/thermostat to the element. For this you would need a multi-meter and a degree of competence/confidence to check for 240 volts at the cable connected to the element.

    It is all fixed, we replaced the element in the top of the oven, but we did not realise there is also and element that goes around the fan and it was this one that had broke. so the oven know has 2 new elements.
