How to Replace a Grill Element on Candy, Hoover, Kelvinator, Rosieres


Obtaining the right grill element on your Candy, Hoover, Kelvinator or Rosieres

To find your grill element for your cooker or oven you will need the full model number and on some models we will even need the serial number as the manufactures sometimes have fitted more than one type to a model series.



Grill elements are fitted to most cookers and built in ovens, In this video I will show you how to remove the grill element and replace it, there are two main types fitted to these makes  Candy, Hoover, Kelvinator, Rosieres a single grill element and a dual grill element.

The dual has an inner and out element in other words two circuits, although there is a 3rd type but it is not often used on these makes (infra-red or sometimes know as glow element) you might also like to see our other video on how to test grill elements this will teach you how to find out if it is faulty.

Replacing an Oven and Cooker Grill Element

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.

Normally there are two securing nuts or screws on the grill element fixing bracket that will release the element and allow removal by sliding the element forward in the oven, on some models there are 1 or 2 screws holding the element in the oven at the top.

You will need to remove the wiring on the element so for single grill elements this is not so important as there will only be a live, neutral and earth connection but on more complex elements with 4 or 5 terminals you need to put them back on correctly.
