High Quality Compatible Half Moon Fan Oven Element - 1700W
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.

Perfect replacement for blown element, works perfectly. A little tricky to install but that's due to the oven design not the part.

This is the second element I have fitted to this Bosch oven so knew exactly what I was doing. The element appeared to be slightly twisted and I had difficulty getting the end with the male connections on it, through the aperture in the back of the oven. Having managed this and screwed the ends to the oven back, I found the top of the element was fouling the fan. The top fixing was not aligning with the hole at all. I took it out a couple of times and tried bending it slightly and got a slightly better fit, but in the end ground the ends of the fan blades down slightly to get the clearance. The top fixing is not in but everything is working fine. On my Bosch there is no need to remove the fan as a half moon cut out allows access to the top screw when positioned over it.
I could have sent the element back would have been without the oven for at least another week.
QMy NEFF fan assist oven will switch on as normal and after 5 mins it trips out at the main electric panel. I can use my grill / top oven normally. Is this caused by a faulty element or is it another fault ?3 Answers
The oven element was replaced in Jan. 2013

Re Scott's input, thanks for your comments but it is not usual for the thermostat to cause this problem. However some elements that have not been used for a while will absorb a little moisture from the atmosphere causing electrical leakage and tripping. However if the element is heated up it can clear this moisture and resolve the problem.

The most likely cause is a failing element but it may be necessary to replace it to prove this is the fault.
I had my oven element changed a year ago by a local chap. it has now gone again, so im trying to replace a new one bought from yourselves, saving money on the fix it man. I followed everything to the part of unscrewing the element. There is a screw at the top, behind the fan. The fan does not allow for this screw to be removed without removing the fan, how do I do this, the fan spins and the nut is solid. Help

Squirt it with wd40 - leave it for at least 30 mins then have another go - remember that the nut turns the opposite way to normal!

The cooker in the video is a different brand, but you can use similar techniques fitting yours to what's shown in the video.
QBought this part for a Neff U1721W2GB. Can I fit it without taking the oven out and opening up the back to unplug the wires ?1 Answer
Have tried doing this with the oven in place. As there is a screw holding the element behind the fan, I undid the nut for the fan but the fan won't just pull off - do I need to use more force ? Also, will the wires for the element pull through the slots so I can detach them ?

If your oven uses the 'cast' type of fan they can seize onto the motor shaft. Use a little penetrating oil on the shaft allow to work and then try 'tapping' the fan with a screwdriver handle to help shock it free on the shaft.
QBritish Gas fitted a new element to my NEFF Ui721 oven. The oven heats up but when you cook a joint it can't get up to temperature. Poor quality compatible element do you think?1 Answer

Yes sounds like it , if british gas supplied and fitted the element get them back out most parts have a 3 month guarantee. Also if your paying for it tell them like for like wont do ! you want the exact element fitting .
