Ok no worries. A picture has come through but its just the home screen of you phone from the looks of it.

But if you have emailed the picture through then I will normally get passed to me when they get to it.

Hi, I'm still waiting for help! I sent pictures this morning. Thanks
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Im not usually online during the day.

Looking at the pictures you posted it looks like you have the lower element disconnected, Is there a reason for this?

Also the grill at the top the pictures are a bit blurry but the wires are not touching the cabinet are they as it looks quite close to the metal work on the oven.

Hi DanielNo, the element isn't touching although it is quite close. Since taking the photo I have put the two lower wires on the and the grill works but the oven doesn't. That suggests I have out the terminals on the wrong way round. I will try that tomorrow when I'm back at the house.
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Looking at the picture at these elements you cannot wire them up wrong as its only a single circuit heater so theres only 2 tags on each heater and it doesn't matter which way round they go.

When you select the oven does the thermostat light come on for it?

No, but the grill works ok now.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Actually, the grill doesn't turn off now! Maybe the wires are on the wrong terminals, even though they are back on as before.
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago
These elements are only a single circuit heater so the wire doesn't matter which way round they go. As long as the earth wire is not connect to the main heater tags that won't cause no problems. As the heater only has 2 wires. So you have a different fault here.
Check the selector switch which you turn to select the oven and see if there's any signs of burning on there. As this can cause the fault you have as it's the switch that sends the power down to the elements.

Hi DanielThat makes sense. The grill is constantly on, whether or not the switch is turned, and the oven doesn't work at all. I'll check the switches next. Thanks

No worries let me know what you find.
