It's no more difficult than fitting a plug,3 wires connect to fitting in wall,turn electric off pull cooker out ,disconnect wires,move cooker,put new cooker in place,connect wires all done.

Nope, piece of cake.

 

Probably 4 screws or so holding the oven to the unit, disconnect the wiring and it'll slide right out.

PM sent.

 

Likiest thing to fail is the element,typically about £25  for a new one.

If you take the old one to Sismans they would test it for you to confirm it's no good.

Typically 3 spade terminals and 1 fixing bolt/ screw

Electric ovens are usually just plugged in to a 13 amp socket.

Depends on the oven. A single one is, a double will be hard wired

As has been already said, its most likely a failed element but should you need to swap out the oven and its hard wired (ie not plugged in to a 13A socket) then ensure you tighten the hard wired connecting terminals firmly, loose connections can cause arcing and possibly a fire.

My free standing over is playing. Sometimes it switches on and sometimes not. I bought it second hand, but I am thinking about getting another second hand one from ebay.

The gap is just over 60cm, will a 50ch oven look odd? Maybe people just get some sort of strip to cover the gap?
