The function of the fan oven element is to heat the oven cavity. When the cooker knob is turned on for your electric cooker, electricity will flow to the element which then proceeds to heat up. Once the element reaches the desired temperature, the electricity flow switches on and off to maintain the temperature.
If the internal element filament burns out, this can cause the element to short circuit - and will lead it to fail. Potential signs that the element has blown can be visual things, such as a split, bulge, or blow hole on the element.
eSpares has the replacement fan oven element, that could soon be yours, to help get your fan oven back to the required temperature - so you can continue to make your delicious meals!

there are two wires for the earth terminal coming from the back of the oven what do you do with these as they might touch the live connections when replacing

On most new ovens the earth connection has been removed. This is because on all ovens in the UK the chassis is earthed and screwing the element in place earths it.
If you do have an earth connection we suggest you insulate the end or follow back to the earth point and remove it as it is no longer required.

Simply remove the spade connection for the earth connection on the element, then fit a ring type crimp on the wire, pass 1 of the fixing screws through the hole in the ring terminal & replace the fixing screw to secure the element & this will re-fix the earth in the correct position.

QNEFF B1664 None of the heating elements work - also screws are tight won't come off2 Answers
All of the heating elements have stopped working - oven, grill, top'n'bottom heat - all dead. Oven otherwise functions as though it's working - fan comes on, lights etc. Do I need to replace all heating elements - is this just the oven heating element and top grill element.
I can't get any ofthe torx screws (T20) off the back plate? They are stuck solid.

Well, it turns out stupid oven had put itself in Demo Mode - with nothing to indicate it was in Demo Mode. Only when you turn Oven off at the fuse and turn it back on again, does it briefly show a message: 'Demo Settings On'.
It then took all sorts of experiments to turn the stupid Demo Mode Off.

Use a good screwdriver, for information see our video: How to diagnose problems with your oven: www.espares.co.uk/advice/1/2145
I have a NEFF B142W2GB, its around 3 years old. When I use the grill its ok, but when I put the oven on it runs for about 10 to 12 minuets and then it blows the 63A 30mA RCD in the consumer unit. Could it be the element.

Please consult an engineer for support before ordering any spares because we cannot give out technical advice unfortunately.

sounds like it could be - my oven element tripped the RCD when it went. Your element could be shorting only when it gets really hot and so when it trips and cools down again it is no longer a short circuit. So a new element is the likey answer but I am no expert - just a humble engineer. I bought the universal one and it is easy to fit - dont know about reliability - only had it a week.
The fixings on the terminal plate of my cooker element are different. One is a phillips self tapping screw but the other is a very slim headed bolt with a head approx 1mm thick. I cant get any purchase on this to remove it.
Any ideas how to remove?

I had the same problem. It is necessary to pull the oven out, remove the screws and take off the back plate. Obviously you have switched off at the supply point. You can then get access to a nut and undo it. I replaced my element with an M4 bolt. Make sure you fit the earthing wire when you put the washer and nut back on. Good luck. I hate espares

I assume 1mm thick means the depth not the width of the head. It could be a countersunk screw.
Assuming you have enough room, try using a good pair of "Mole Grips" to get the screw started.
If all else fails, try tapping with a centre punch at a 60 degree tangent, and replacing the screw
