Hi

Sorry for the delay in getting to your question. As to removing the element on these it could be either way, Either inside the oven or round the back. It depends on which type of element they use at the time as they like to use both types.

Anyway you need to empty the oven and remove the back panel in there.

From there you can see the element around the fan. Look at the bracket and see if theres screws on there. If so then you can remove the element from in there.

But if there isn't screws on the inside then you need to pull the oven out and remove the back panel

From there a the back you will see the wires going to the fan element. Like either side there and you will see either 2 screws or 7mm nut. Remove these then go round the front to the inside of the oven and you can remove the element from there and swap it over.

Check that out and see what you find from there.
