stove on fire!!
I purchased my oven in Feb 2015. On Sunday night whilst cooking a roast I heard a loud pop coming from the kitchen. I went into the kitchen and the back of the oven was on fire , luckily we caught this just in time. I rang Belling and was told it was the fitting at the back of the oven and they would sent the part to me.I also was told to get the Electrician to make sure it was screwed in tight when they put the new part in.The last electrician who put it in made sure it was screwed in tight.I hope this doesn't happen again.I am awaiting on the...part and will have to find an electrician and pay for this to be done. The guy at Belling was so sure about what part was needed and he voice gave away that this problem has occurred before.I would be interested if anybody else has had this problem.Also I would like to comment on the booklet that came with the stove utter waste of time to read as it doesn't give clear instructions only very confusing instructions to use both ovens. I would never purchase this brand again!!

Very disappointed. Ceramic hob cracked in under three months from a very small incident - very thin glass top. No Warranty on glass top EVER and worth too much to replace - almost $1000. Oven door was bent/out of line from the box. Rang Harvey Norman and was told neither covered under warranty. Belling confirmed this. Oven temp seems to be too hot. Blackouts confuse it. Polished look on handles nice but sides of doors stain and mark badly. Very disappointed as was supposed to be feature in new kitchen layout.
I loved the look of this stove and it was great at the start but after 12 months the nobs one by one all broke. Staff at there centre were great and sent me some replacements but they have since broken again and Iv had to replace them myself. I found the cooking fine no issues. Loved having duel ovens.
This oven is great. I have had since Jan 2014 and absolutely love it. The double oven works well. Great to be able to cook main & dessert at the same time! I like that the bottom oven can be standard or fan-forced, which is great for browning up at the end if need be. I find that the temperature is even, good for cooking cakes which I do quite a bit. The electric top is good too. Normally not a fan, but only have electricity (no gas) so this is my only option. I really like the smooth surface and how it sits in like with my benchtop making it look really neat. The top oven is super handy and works really well too, including the grilling function.
Warranty and manufacturing issues!
I purchased a Belling FSE60MF last year as it seemed to tick all my requirements and at the time the reviews appeared to be good. Unfortunately the inside glass oven door panel exploded while I was cooking. I have always treated my stoves with care and have never had a stove door explode before. We rang Belling Australia only to be told that that part of the oven is not under warranty and that we must have done something to cause the event. After some discussion they decided to send us a new piece of glass. At no time was an exploding oven door...considered a fault by the distributor. I have written this review to let others know of the Belling Australia warranty. I have had lots of ovens over the years and have never had one explode before, what has changed? A couple of years on since purchasing my Belling and I am happy to say the oven door has remained stable. Unfortunatley the front hotplate no longer works as it should, and all the knobs have broken and are very expensive to replace. It had all my requirements for an upright stove. The oven door exploded.
Questions & Answers
We purchased our unit in 2011 and although we are a bit disappointed with the oven performance (my wife bakes a lot!) in general we have been happy especially the “speed” of the hob.
We have now lost the P mode on the right front and back elements. Crackling noise from the elements and no power, only on P. Can you please supply us with explanation of fault
Suggest you look at the answers to 'Mandy' and 'Chubb' for their questions about the same Belling stove model. Things can work loose: my top oven grill element did that recently [bought 2013] and the repair 'sparky' discovered a loose push-on connector - I'd already bought a spare element on the assumption that that couldn't happen as the tabs are usually so tight.

Hi, I am looking for the fan element for my Belling, apparently the element is 2000w but can only get 1600w.
according to the parts listing on line this element is no longer available, can anyone help?
Have you tried Belling Australia direct? I had to get an element for the top oven last week, and their prices were almost half those on the internet otherwise and they do know exactly which ones to get. The current COVID situation is holding up delivery, but worth it for the right part.
Hi Terry, Thank you for reaching out to Belling, I have just confirmed the following with our service technician - PN 083479700 is 2Kw and will fit this appliance, please let me know if you require any further information thank you
