I fixed our element before we got our vair nice new range cooker it's dead easy. Top tip, use clothes pegs to stop the wires dropping behind the back wall.

I got a 3 year old cooker replaced by Argos, that was a Beko too hmm
They were very good about it actually, I did have to get a quote though from an electrician just saying what was wrong/had gone wrong previously.

I bought a new element on eBay for less than a tenner and changed it myself following a video I found online, it was pretty straightforward, just a bit tricky fitting myself into the confined space of the oven

Chilli con carne and rice

Mince and tatties

Chicken curry and rice

Vegetable pasta with a tomato sauce

Pan fried pork and couscous

That gives you 5 days to contact Beko

Found an online video to change mine. Took half an hour max. Had to do it twice before I worked out that I'd been the one knackering up the element by accidentally getting oven cleaner on it.

Do you have a brother/sister/uncle/aunt/friend/whatever that is handy with a screwdriver?

have got in touch with beko and argos but dont hold out much hope they left me a fortnight without it when it was under warranty. wish we hadnt bought it its been pants. dp is saying we can do it ourselves im dubious though as he has a tendancy not to admit when he doesnt know what hes doing grin

google how to change the element, you will find sites and videos to show you how, it's pretty straightforward, so fitting it would not cost you anything then.

found one on amazon about 13 pound, element man 20. worried about cost of someone fitting more than actual element. its the d533 model

I changed the heating element in our oven myself, it was really straightforward. One tip, take a photo of the old one and how it's wired up on your phone before you disconnect it. I found a you tube video of how to do it.

If you've had three elements in three years, I'd be expecting them to replace it for free.

Everything has to be fit for purpose for a certain length of time. Three years is well within this. Contact Trading Standards for information.

You need the element man. They are great and they despatch quickly too. Changing an element yourself isn't particularly difficult, but do turn it off at the switch first

MintyyAeroEgg Sat 20-Apr-13 20:14:28

google it!

Tiredmumno1 Sat 20-Apr-13 20:11:54

You can change the element yourself. The heating element should be approx £30 to buy

How much are you expecting it to cost?

You could buy a Halogen oven, they are £40 on ebay and cost less to use than your oven anyway. Both my husband and brother won't eat a pizza cooked in one (base doesn't go hard enough), but apart from that, I've never had any complaints, I liked mine until I dropped the lid on the floor and broke it blush, I'm even planning on buying another.
