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!

yes it should do. when an element goes it melts together and it could cause a short circuit other causes could be loose wiring on element

It is possible that the main element has been damaged and it is causing an electrical short. Sometime the circular rigns fuse together and that may cause the short.

Without actually seeing your oven, it is impossible to tell what is causing this problem. What I would advise is talking to your local cooker specialist and they should be able to diagnose the problem for you. And that's where we come in! With thousands of oven spares, we're bound to have the part for you.
QMy oven has a top oven and a bottom oven. Which one is this element for? (I need one for the bottom oven!)4 Answers

This element is for the BOTTOM OVEN of a Zanussi ZHQ575. To replace, gently unclip the thermostat from the top right hand corner of the back plate, unscrew the back plate and old element, pull the spade connectors from the element taking care that the wires don't spring back into the holes. Push the connectors on to the new element and reattach the element and backplate to the cooker. Clip the thermostat back in place. Should take no more than about half an hour.

normally the top oven doesnt have a fan,the only element is for the grill.you can tell if that is working ,by turnig on and see it glowing ,therefore element would be in the bottom oven.but have you checked your thermostat! my advice is do the element first ,as these normally go first,they are very easy to fit ,and dont take much time at all. hope this helps.

This is definitely the one! You just unscrew the plate at the back and the old element, then pull the crimped wires off (this is the hardest bit - I used pliers) then reassemble.
If the lights all come on and it doesnt warm up then its definitely the element!
Have removed the old element but the clips keep popping off the new element so haven't yet screwed element in. How can I make the wire clips stay attached?
- 01 October 2013
If the clips you refer to are the spade connectors for the wires to the element it is possible to tighten these by gently squeezing the rolled end to reduce the gap. If the connectors are in poor condition they can be replaced by cutting off the old ones and obtaining new from most car spares shops.

QArrived in no time but can unscrew the front panel :-(((1 Answer
I have tried all morning to unscrew the front panel to access the element
I have tried WD40 and a lot of it but the screw are so stuck.
Did you ever came across with this before? Do you have any suggestion?
I really want to try to save some money and do it myself

I had a similar issue but with just 1 screw on my front panel. It has corroded into the clip at the back and in my effort to unscrew it the cross head just rounded out.
I used a dremil to cut the head of the screw into a flat so i could use a flat blade screw driver. After a bit of wigling about the screw came out and i replaced it with a new one.
