A Main Oven Thermostat is quite straight forward to replace. There are three main areas to consider. 1/. the thermostat mounting, 2/. the connections to the electrical supply, and 3/. the positioning of the thermostat sensing capillary tube.
If you are not familiar with working with electricty leave it to a trained professional, it is much safer. If however you feel safe with electrical equipment simply isolate the appliance, disconnect is best, remove all screws to give access to the top and rear panels of the appliance and remove the front facia and control knob. The rest only involves removing the old thermostat and fitting the new one in reverse order. Make a hand written note of the position of the wires on the old one with reference to colour of wiring and M1, M2 or whatever coding is used on the thermostat body, be careful to unwind the capillary tubing so that it does not kink and position the sensor tube in it's mounting in such a way that it will not dislodge once the oven is at full temperature and the metal starts to anneal. Dress all wiring as per the original installation and replace any cable ties removed. Also dress the thermostat sensor capillary tubing such as to neaten the work and keep it away from any electrical contact. Ensure you test the appliance thoroughly before you leave it.
I hope this helps.

Hi Manunited99, I'd only fit a thermostat if you're fully confident you can do it. If not, I'd say you'd be best off hiring an electrician.
My oven heats up OK and when its reached the temperature the thermastat light goes out .
But if I use the fan assisted switch the oven temperature is never reached and Stays just a little warm .as if the thermastat isn't working, even though the thermastat light is on.
