my bottom part of my oven is not heating up,the top is

im guessing the heating element has gone

it's electric

it's a slide into the unit one,quite easy to buy and install

Have you looked somewhere like espares online to see whether they stock the element for your oven? They probably have a tutorial to show you what to do unless it isn't something you can do yourself.

I've replaced the element on my fan oven. There are lots of videos on YouTube to show you how and if you have the make and model of your oven you can get the element from an electrical spares shop (mine cost £25).
My tip is to take photos of all the wiring before you disconnect anything then you know how to put it all back together.

Dh and I replaced ours once. It was about twenty quid from espares and nit technically difficult at all, fiddly though.

I did mine myself.
Bought the new element from eBay and watched a youtube video on how it was done.
Quite simple but a fiddle.
£15 job done.
Dont forget to turn the electricity OFF before you start.
