Hi Jane
Great

Ok In that case it sounds like its the circular element surrounding the fan.
Isolate from the power.
Remove the back panel inside the oven.
You will see the fan and the element.
Remove the retaining screws/bolts.
Carefully pull forward the element and the wiring.
Remove the wiring.
You may see damage to the element.
If you have a meter, check it for continuity, if its open circuit you will need to replace it.

If you need help locating the element, please let me know.

In the meantime,
