    Did you not take a pic before you disconnected the old one?

    Didn't have chance for pic, have tried Currrys, they told me to look on the internet. Hunting for weeks.

    Well that's helpful of Curry's!

    Own a multimeter?

    Don't think I need to tell you to take a pic next time whether you have time or not

    Need a pic of the wires too

    The wire colours are not brown , black, yellow and green/yellow by any chance are they?

    No multimeter. The wire colours are 2 blue, 1 black, 1 white, 1 green/brown. I'm almost at the point of guessing now.

    Well that's one down , the earth goes in the middle!

    The two blues will be neutral so put them both on either the left or right side (the cable length might be helpful here to tell you which side)

    The black one and the white one put on the two remaining connectors , guess which way around and you will only find out if you have it right when you turn the oven on and see which element is glowing , 50/50 chance!

    I'm assuming the earth is the middle prong is normally is and it will be marked with an earth symbol this is the important one , get it wrong and you will trip your electric

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I refitted the old one for trial and error, I had the 2 blue to the left, black in middle, white next to that with green/yellow far right. Connected like this both the hob and grill worked, when switched to oven it cut out. Oven is the broken part anyway but didn't used to cut out previously. Any help very welcome

    Green and Yellow is the earth and goes in the middle, you can see that the middle tag is spot welded to the element plate. Two blues one side then the other two one way or the other which ever makes it work.
    As sircerebus666 has already said.
