If an oven part doesn't get insanely hot on hotukdeals, I don't know what will.

Anyway, it's a week before Christmas and the worst possible* thing has happened; the oven's broken! I'm almost certain it's the element that's gone, so rather than paying £100+ for parts and labour I'm gonna have a go at repairing it myself. I was therefore pleased to find this compatible part for half price. Ordered with an additional £1.50 postage. I'll let you know how I get on...

*alright, it could be worse.

Is this not device specific, surely it's not a 1 fits all?
sorry ordered from appliancehelp on line with postage came to £6.94, not sure if it exacltly the same but it for indesit fan oven.
This kind of price is not at all uncommon. It's certainly not a HOT deal.
What is it with the week before Christmas, mine went last night and i ordered one off Amazon market place for £12 including next day delivery 5 mins ago. Not OEM but if it cooks a turkey i'll be happy.
The only way this is going to get "insanely hot" is to plug it in! Good price though so some warmth added! (_;)
I tend to use another firm whitegoods.co.uk who are incredibly comprehensive & have a great album of engineers "nightmares" ..so many ovens actually use the same piece for instance it's not surprising to see an element carry across around 200+ models...

Before calling out an engineer for a failed oven (often pretty simple fix) try a site like the op suggested, our oven has 3 elements, when you do a bit of looking they're de-mystified.

I think you mean ukwhitegoods.co.uk, the other one is a referral site
Fixed mine a few weeks ago for a lot cheaper than this...
Cheers, another prezzie for the Mrs to go with the oven gloves and egg timer.
I use elementreplacement but this is a good price....if it fits.

Same part number £10.88 including postage from ebay business seller.
These are all coming in from china now @ as low as a quid cost delivered.

Be warey of the measurement if replacing yours this is NOT universal. Oh and replacing this with out an qualified engineers receipt of work will fully invalidate your home insurance if it catches fire.

Was speaking to a fire investigator about 4 months ago and this guy lost his £350,000 house because he burn his electrics out replacing the element, Said it was Electrolux's fault, they proved that they never fitted the type of element to the cooker and his insurance wouldnt pay out, end of the day is it worth it.

If you go through buyspares.co.uk they can find a local agent engineer to repair the appliance for you via Repaircare network.
expensive ! I got one last year for my old NEFF cooker and it was about £9 from an Amazon seller .
Kankan makes a good point, there are lots of generic elements that fit, however i'd only replace like for like, often an element is only a couple of wires & screws to replace & fit, however unless you are "competent" , even something as basic as marking cables as you remove them will help) ..& thank god for digital cameras as a point of reference for how wiring should be seated again after fitting (to avoid hotspots etc...
approved spares are the way to go, that way you ensure a compliant part.

Thats a pattern part not a genuine, this will be coming in from some Italian/turkish/chinese source and you not going to know the quality bet these get some earth leakage.

Like the way they are quoting the Merloni part number and not telling you either way.

In some respects they are breaking the law, using the work quality and replacement, they should be clearly saying what element it is and pattern or genuine and they should actaully be stating "suitable to fit" and not say it fits if its a pattern part.

"We strongly recommend elements are fitted by suitably qualified person with the appliance disconnected from the mains supply."

This is contensious as it can be, they really should be saying this "must be" not "strongly recommends" as the appliance fits to the mains at 240v.

load of liability all round, if you want to take a risk buy one and DIY but I would never recommend it.
