Has anyone fitted a new 240 volt element , how is it accessible ,
Thank you Mr Brown , I now feel confident that I can do the job.the flue at the rear is encased in a thin metal insulated tube which needs to be opened. the 2 elements can be seen going into the left of this tube. they just slot into retaining tubes welded to the flue . you need to open up the insulation just enough to remove and replace the element. as i remember , the 240v element has an earth attached , and it doesn't matter which way round the other 2 wires go
Thank you Tezza ,I think now I have the info from yourself and Mr Brown I will be able to fit the element by taking the large vents off on the outside , regards ,GeorgertI changed mine a few months ago, I was hoping it would pull out without disturbing the insulation because I knew it slotted into a tube but no luck so I had to remove the fridge to gain access to the back, it is easy once you have access and exactly how Nigel said
Thanks again Mr Brown ,I understand I think it gives a decent week weather wise so I will sort it this week. I will let you know the outcome , cheers Georgeif you're going in from the back then you might not be able to get to the wiring easily , as there's no problem ascertaining polarity , then you should be able to cut and join the 2 wires. just keep the join as far from the flue as poss. oh and switch off before cutting !
Thanks for letting us know the outcome and well doneThank you both for your information ,I can now say " job done " .I managed to replace the element from the outside using the old wires ,all cleaned out and tested found working on all three. Thanks again. George.
