A rubber seal for an oven door is a cooker part which is responsible for keeping as much hot air in the oven as possible. You can find it attached to the metal inner part of your oven and the glass on your oven door. If you look closely, you will find that there are actually two types of rubber seals for an oven door.

If you regularly use your hobs on your cooker, finding out you have a faulty hob element is bad news for for you! Your ceramic hob element is vitally important as it is the cooker part that is responsible for producing the heat in your hobs, and therefore it's vitally important that you replace them as soon as they start to become faulty - you'll be able to tell if your element is faulty if there is any damage inside the element or the cut out (the part across the top of the element) has tripped. 

Here at Cooker Spare Parts we have a comprehensive range of hob elements for you to choose from, and we're confident they'll have your hob performing as well as it did when you first purchased it. 

If you've purchased a new ceramic hob element, but you're unsure how to fit it, we created this little guide to help you fit you fit your new element, and get your hob working again as quick as possible. 

How to Replace a Ceramic Hob Element

  1. Turn off the power to your oven. Before starting any work, please make sure your appliance is unplugged.
  2. Next, remove the top of your cooker. To do this, remove the four screw that are holding it in place. In some cooker models, you may also have to remove the rivet. If you don't have long nails, and you're having trouble removing the rivet - you can use a box cutter or pen knife, by easing it between the rivet and the oven top. Once there's a big enough gap, get a less sharp object, in between and ease it away from your hob top.
  3. Remove the warning light. Now that you've removed all four screws and rivets, you can remove the hob top from your cooker - but be careful as your cooker's warning light is still attached. Your warning light can easily be slipped out, allowing you to remove the hob top completely. 
  4. Remove the electrical connections to your element. Once you know which element is faulty, you can remove the electrical connections. These can be complicated to put back in, so we recommend you take note of them by taking a photo. These connections can also be quite stiff, so if required, we recommend you use a flat head screwdriver to gently ease them off. 
  5. Lift off the element. Once all the connections are disconnected, you can lift off the element by un-clipping the brackets from the cooker. 
  6. Remove the brackets. Your new element will not be supplied with brackets, so you're going to have to remove the brackets from your cooker and attach them to your new element. There are numbers along the element that will indicate where you should fit your bracket on to your element - you're going to have to match it with your old element. 
  7. Re-connect the element and the electrical connection to your cooker. Once you have fitted the brackets to your element, you can clip the element back into place, and reconnect the electrical connections using your photo as a reference - there may be a slight difference on where your black lead will fit onto your electrical connector, it should be connected to the connection where the coil of the element ends.
  8. Re fit the top of your hob. Now that all the electrical connections are in place, you can fit the your hob top back on to your cooker, ensuring your warning light fits back into its position.
  9. And there you have it; you've just replaced your ceramic hob element.

Have you found that your cooker is always overheating and your meals are turning out overcooked? Well one of the cooker parts that try to prevent this from happening is your Thermal Cut Out Switch - but what exactly is a thermal cut out switch?

What is A Thermal Cut-Out Switch

Your Thermal Cut Out Switch will cut out the power supply if your cooker exceeds a set temperature and excess heat starts to build up inside your cooker. This is a problem as there is a risk that some cooker part may become damaged if your cooker gets too hot - such as your oven element. If your cooker's element becomes faulty, your cooker will struggle to produce any heat, which is a major problem, and therefore it's vitally important that your Thermal Cut Out Switch is replaced as soon as you notice it has become faulty, to prevent your oven element from also becoming faulty.

Replacing your thermal switch will not only stop any other parts from becoming faulty, but will also save you money when it comes to your energy bills, which is an added bonus. If your cut out switch has become faulty, we have an terrific range of Thermal Switches and Door Switches that will prevent you're cooker from overheating and ensure your cooker is back to normal.

Your oven can be a complicated appliance, one that most of us use every day but know little about. If your oven becomes faulty it can be difficult to pin point the part of the oven that is causing the issue. So firstly, it's important to know the key components of your oven. The parts of your oven that may cause problems are oven elements, thermometers and the fan or motor. 

You may think there is no way you're capable of working out why your oven isn't working or being able to fix it - but it really isn't as complicated as you think. Here are Cooker Spare Parts we are here to help, so here is a little run down of the important parts of your cooker. We'll inform you of their role in your cooker, what will happen if it becomes faulty and how you can fix the problem. So let's get down to it. 

Oven Elements 

We start with possibly one of the most important parts of your cooker, the oven element! It's the cooker part that heats up and supplies the heat that will cook your meals. There are two types of oven elements - Fan Oven Elements and Oven Base Elements. A fan oven element is circular in shape and is fitted in front of your oven fan - this will allow the heat to be evenly spread around your oven cavity. An Oven Base Element fits to the bottom of your oven and distributes heat from there - however the hot air isn't as evenly spread as a fan oven element.

If your oven element is faulty, you may find that your oven is struggling to heat up or isn't heating up at all. This of course is a bit of a problem, as your cooker's main role is to produce heat that will enable you to cook your meals. If you're oven element is faulty, we recommend that you take a look at our fantastic selection of replacement oven elements. We're confident they'll have your oven performing better than ever before! 

Electric Thermostats and Regulators

Every electric cooker needs a thermostat! Without a fully working thermostat your oven's temperature won't be properly regulated. Your oven's thermostat is in charge of informing your oven element to stop heating up once it has reached the temperature you set it to. It also ensures that your oven remains at that temperature. If your oven thermostat or regulators are faulty, you may find that your oven will be overheating or even under heating - causing your food to be incorrectly cooked, and therefore should be replaced as soon as possible.

Here at Cooker Spare Parts we have a huge range of Electric Thermostats and Regulators that will ensure your cooker's temperature is regulated once again.

Oven Fan and Motors

We sell two types oven fans here at Cooker Spare Parts. The first oven fan we sell is responsible for evenly distributing the hot air in your oven cavity. It is situated behind your fan oven element at the back of your oven cavity. The other oven fan we have to offer is a cooling fan; and you can probably guess its role - your oven cooling fan's job is to prevent your oven from overheating and burning your meals. Both these oven fans are very important components to your cooker, and if they're faulty it's very important to replace them as soon as you can. To view our range of Oven Fans, please click here
