Hi all

I need to replace an oven lower element. Only problem is its a oven from 1987 - a Gorenje Pacific. I emailed Gorenje and they simply said they can offer no help, parts, parts diagrams or anything; useless.

I found this wiring diagram online for the same model

Problem is I don't read electric diagrams well.

I see 2 different elements - which look identical to the broken one; problem is they are identical to themselves. Only difference is $ and one says 950-1100w.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GORENJE...30002-20-29185-000-2029185/262915598159?

or

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GORENJE...-RE1806-3130002-9522-EU030/262409938408?

Bearing in mind it is hardwired into the wall and has a griller top element, a top element and bottom element, which of them is a safer bet - I am thinking the 950-1100w, but it says they both fit the same models

Thanks

Sounds like companies here that only wants to sale new stuff. either that or they are just too lazy to look-up the product.

As for the element provide you have found the right part number it is a simple change out as it is just two wires. You should not even need pull the oven out to do this. Now of course I don't this oven physical setup, just going what I see here in the US.

The wiring diagrams just indicate that the input power source can three phase and two phase 415 vac or 240 single phase power. I would think residential wiring will be the single phase 240 vac or at least that is what most home in the US are wired for expect we do have 240/120 vac single phase circuits.

Hi Tyler,
Once upon a time you bought a product on price, the more you paid usually determined the quality of the product. Now we know all these products are made in the same Chinese factory, so whatever the quality they are all the same, be it good or bad. So now you can't shop for a quality product so you just buy on the cheapest price and $33 seems a good deal. The are still some exceptions like the commercial Honda engines and Makita power tools but you get my drift.

Tyler, read the description at the bottom of both those links you have posted, they appear to be the same part number, and as far as having an element with two wattage characteristics as in the ad 950-1100 watts, not possible.
The wattage of a heating element is calculated using its resistance it does not vary once it has been manufactured. It is not a difficult job to replace the element but be extremely careful because it is hardwired and you cannot unplug it, just turning off the control switch on the oven is not terribly satisfactory as far as your safety is concerned.
The safest thing to do is to turn off the main switch on your switchboard, it is possible to have the wiring to the stove wired incorrectly and if the switch on the stove is a single pole it only turns off one part of the supply and if the connection is wrong there could still be 240 volts at the element. Also if you have earth leakage safety control at your switchboard this can also make it dangerous.
I no longer do it but for approx 16 years of my working life I was an electrical serviceman, domestic electrical appliance repairs refrigerators, washing machines stoves etc etc.

Regards Geoff.

Thanks guys

This is actually a stove oven freestanding unit.

I will go for the $33 one.

Beech, I was thinking it was a dual filament element or something with a variable output haha. Thanks for the tips as a past electrician. I have 2 RCD's and separate switches for oven so will switch everything off to be safe.

Thanks again
