    Damn good going! Stuff is made down to a price now, less so back then I suppose.
    I expect oven elements are more prone to failure if they come into direct contact with splashing food.

    What with that and everyone having electric cars I reckon someone needs to get their finger out and get laid into some serious storage and solar farms. Ideally with the panels high enough off the ground so sheep can happily graze underneath.

    Oddly enough one of the elements in my parents electric oven failed on Christmas day and kept tripping the RCD. Fortunately I was able to disconnect the failed element so Christmas dinner was not spoiled, but it was very slow to heat up. I seem to remember we had to forgo Yorkshire puddings too as the oven could not be get hot enough.
    Forgo Yorkshire Puddings ?

    That's a torment nobody north of Birmingham should have to endure ! Christmas day too. You have my utmost sympathies

    I’d hope most people on here can replace an oven element, I’ve certainly done a few in the past but our current oven (Neff) has yet to fail. Previous Hotpoint did it on Xmas eve once, must to my disgust and expense. (Sound of minor explosion from kitchen... )

    In my time I've replaced brushes in a washing machine, heating elements in an oven, thermocouples in a boiler, and a microwave oven magnetron. Unfortunately circuit boards are not designed to be repaired but replaced as it makes the cost per board cheaper - and most things these days have a circuit board or two.
