Hi Collett are you here?
this sounds like the lement is all that is bad;-)
element sorry for the typo,
Yes. Everything else still works. Bit strange that it was the bottom element that's gone when it was the grill element in the roof that was left on. No doubt it will cost a fortune to fix.
Hi no really, the element is inexpensive and easy to replace;-)
if you have tools and would like to do this yourself i can help
the element is about the cheapest part that could fai as well
Thinking about diy option. Presumably screws at the front need undoing to get access to the element ? How long would it take ? What is the best place to buy an element from and it's likely cost ?
it is pretty easy to do if you are careful. And be sure not to lose the two wires that connect to the element back into the hole. If you do, then you will need to remove the unit from the wall and open the back cover.
But if you are careful that shouldnt happen
The job should take about 20 minutes if you have never done one before but I will still be here to assist you with that;-) no additional cost once you rate my service
Also do you need a source for that element?
Thanks for your help Michael. Will discuss with my wife this evening. Yes, will probably need a source for the element. If I save this conversation presumably I will have an email address to come back to you if we decide to takes things further ?
once you rate, i will send you a letter, you can get up with me anytime after that by simply replying to that message;-) Have a great day!
please rate kindly at this time Tech Michael
We haven't decided whether to replace the element or not.
Presumably we are at the point when you can send me fitting instructions so that I can proceed whenever I chose to ?
It's the bottom element that appears to have gone, not the top visible one. Checked the grill out and it's still works.
There is no drawer under the top oven. The floor appears to be sealed in place with a lip from the front faceplate keeping it secure. There are screws above and below the side hinges for the top door. It looks like the entire black stove enamel interior is one unit and needs to be removed to access the elements.
Going out now. Speak Saturday.
Have looked carefully at the Indesit Cooker. There appears to be four screws holding all the black stove enamel interior in place. However as the door hinges are attached to this the screws there would need removing two. Even if all this is done there appears to be insufficient space to remove the total cooker liner. Looks like the white facia behind the dials would need removing to give enough space. Alternatively perhaps there is way in round the back ? All looks rather complicated and time consuming to me so will probably leave it all alone.
have decided not to do anything as it seems to much hassle.
Thanks for your help.
Hello, my name is George..
Ensuring firstly that the clock is set to manual cooking.... Does the top element come on when you turn the element onto OVEN setting (not the grill setting)?
If not, then it is likely that the oven is not turning on and therefore it is more likely to be the thermostat control or thermal cut-out that is the problem. Which of these would be at fault I don't know as the parts would need testing with the correct tools to diagnose properly and for this you should call an engineer to assist.
If you need to find an engineer local to you then I can assist, just ask.
If the top element does come on when you select OVEN (not grill), then the base oven element of top oven can be accessed from the rear of the cooker by turning off the power to the appliance and removing the back panel.. The element is screwed in underneath the top oven cavity and is immediately accessible with the back panel of the cooker removed.
Here is a purchase link to the Base Grill Oven Element

If you need further advice on fitting this part I can assist.
Update on my twin oven Indesit. I turned it off at the socket for half an hour and then switched on the top oven. The light came on for a few minutes and both the top and bottom elements got warm. Then it switched itself off. This suggests it's the thermostat that has gone. How fiddly is this to replace ?
