Concerning the main oven of Zanussi ZOD35511XR and the top

This answer was rated:

Concerning the main oven of Zanussi ZOD35511XR and the top and bottom heat. Where are the elements-inside the cavity or covered by plates so that the heaters are outside the actual oven? Can top and bottom heat remain off, have top on, have bottom on, or both on? Finally, for oven cleaning we have bad experience of the top element being inside the oven, so we hope yours is outside!
Comments please
Thank you

Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Is this a proposed purchase?
Can you recheck that model number as its not listed, I can then check for you

Sorry. The number is ***** not XR (ZOD35511XK).

Yes we are evaluating for potential purchase.

The grill element in this is exposed. This also acts as the top element for conventional mode
This will be the case in all electric ovens

The lower element is hidden.

The fan element is hidden behind the back wall

This is all fairly standard for electric ovens
