I was just about to put two home made pizzas in the oven, and Pouf! the element went on the large fan oven. The pizzas had to be cooked in the small top oven, which I hardly ever use, as it is also the grill.
With instructions manual etc, a replacement element was soon ordered, and received back very quickly. Luckily there are two pair of hands, and two strong people. As we fitted the oven, ourselves over four years ago, Mr S knew how it all fitted together. Due to screws having been inserted with heads on the back, the element could not be replaced without taking the whole oven out, and removing the back panels. If only it had been fitted from the front, changing the element would have been a doddle. I am just the extra help with lifting out the oven, and passing tools etc, Mr S is the problem solver and fixer on this project.
I'm very happy to report that everything is in working order, and the first and celebratory loaves has now been baked.
