Good afternoon,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

If you don’t mind, please allow me a few minutes to check its schematics and then type the answer.

In the meantime, if you want to add something please feel free to add and I will read it while I am typing my response.

I can’t see how both elements have gone at the same time do you
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Kevin are you still there?
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 17 days ago.

Yes, pulling its schematics took a bit of time.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 17 days ago.

Sorry just one question are you using left one or right one ?

Or it trips on both ?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
It is the left hand side, right hand side is working ok
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 17 days ago.

Thank you.

I believe either the element and/or the selector switch is faulty and will need replacement.

Are you willing to replace it yourself ?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Are the elements for the grill and oven one piece or are they separate
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I can replace the elements ok but just need to know if they separate or one unit
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 17 days ago.

There is a separate fan oven element and two elements for grill.

Can you test the elements with a multi-meter ?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
what resistance reading should I expect
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 17 days ago.

You can test them for open circuit and replace the one that has no continuity.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
