I am about to replace the main oven element in my electric cooker. This will be the third time it has been replaced. I had others replace it before and they put in a 2000W element. Since it has blown again (in less than a year) and I intend to replace it myself I have checked the manual and it says the main oven element should be 2100W. I have gone online and purchased a genuine 2100W element and I am awaiting it's arrival.
I was wondering why my cooker had blown 2 elements in the last 3 years. Could it have been because of the lower rated element or is it my cooker is on the way out?
