    It's easy to replace.

    1. First check that it's not the fuse (if you have one of those ovens with fuses).
    2. If it's the fuse, replace and check.
    3. If it's not the fuse, switch off at mains. Make sure it's off by turning on a [working] plate and feel if it's warming up. Alternatively [best method] = use a multimeter.
    4. Move stove away from wall to gain access to rear.
    5. Some ovens/stove have a cover screwed onto the rear. Unscrew it, you should see lots of electrical wiring.
    6. Locate the grill element and its cabling. Make note (masking tape) which cable goes where, and unplug/unscrew. A torch will be handy here.
    7. The element itself is fastened with two screws inside. Loosen these, and carefully remove the element.
    8. Take element to the spares shop, get replacement. Also take a note of the oven make and model with.
    9. Refitting is a reversal of removal.


    If you're not comfortable working with ovens and electricity, you can get an electrician. Most spares shops usually have a technician who can do the same job. Phone around for pricing and callouts before the time though.


    edit : Had a look on our Defy oven - no fuses of any kind to be found :/

    It's generally the best to take the original part with when purchasing the replacement part - to ensure that the replacement part is actually the correct part.

    Otherwise you'll do the ping-pong thing.

    Defy fuses are on the top where the knobs are.

    I cannot find a service manual or manual for your stove. Under counter stoves works a little differently than normal standalone stoves and I have no idea if they have fuses or even where they are.

    See if you can get the manual or look at a model similar to your at a local store and ask the assistant to show you where the fuses are located.

    Other than that phone/email Bauer and ask them for a manual? It has worked for me in the past with companies.

    Have you tried contacting Bauer directly? I had our under-counter's fuse done that way 3 years ago, for a callout fee of course. Was easier/safer than trusting my clumsy DIY skill

    thanks. emailed bauer who refered me to Independent Appliance Services 086 110 1913 . these guys were not helpfull at all, the guy at the spares dep, said they were out of stock approx 1sec after i gave him the model number and put the phone down.

    i've emailed them *crosses fingers* for better service/response

    btw, once i take the grill element where would i go look apart from teh 2 places mentioned already
