This will depend on the model, can you let me have the number?

If its a grill element, these may be put in from inside, look for the screws that hold it in place on the back wall

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the only number I can find is BI 80T 3WH. There are no visible screws. the element goes into 4 holes with a small plate in the rear of the oven. The front of the element (near the door) has a slotted wire rod running across the width holding it to the ceiling.

Hi Ronald

OK, I cant find any details with those numbers, sorry.

If the element isn't held from inside, the older type are held from the rear.

Disconnect the supply
Remove the back cover at the rear of the oven.
You will then see the retaining screws for the element.

Make a note of the wiring and remove the element.

The retaining rod across the ceiling is flexed to pull it out of one of the holes, so enabling you to remove the rod and the element.

If you need more help, please jut ask.
