How to replace a grill element on an Aeg or Electrolux cooker or oven
Before you begin isolate the oven or cooker from the mains power and make sure that the power is off. Test the appliance when switched off (with a multi meter) so that you do not have any voltage as switches can sometimes be faulty.
Sometimes you do not need to remove the appliance from the kitchen housing as the grill can come out from within the oven. But on a lot of cookers and ovens you will need to take the back of the cooker to access the screws that hold the grill in place see the video on this.
If you have a built in oven it will have to be removed from the housing in order replace the grill element. Many people think this as a daunting task thinking that it is hard to remove the oven from its housing but, in almost every case it is simple.
