The oven is very noisy. When operated a loud rattle is coming from the top section of the oven between the oven and hob. It sounds like a fan rubbing on something. After the oven has been on for >30 minutes the noise sometimes stops. When this happens it sounds like a fa is slowing down to a stop.
Is there a fan in there that can be replaced?

You can look at fan closely and see if there is a set screw holding the fan to the shaft. It could be loose causing the rattle. If that is not the problem then see if the shaft has a lot of play in it. It could be worn out and allowing the fan to rattle. If that is the case then replace the fan
The fan you refer to is the external cooling fan, if the oven is built ijn, you will have to remove it from the housing to access the fan, and then remove the top cover of cabinet and possibly the rear cover as well.
From what you describe is happening, I would say that it is the fan that is causing the noise, not neccesserily the oven fan, because there is an external cooling fan as well, and these are the only moving parts that could cause a noise.
Hope this helps.
On the repairs I have done, it has always been a bad fan motor bearing. The only way you are going to be able to tell is to tear it down to the fan assembly and feel if the fan blade or blower is loose. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
If the fan is working, but there is no heat in the oven at all, then it is going to be the element that is faulty, assuming it is an electric oven.
If the fan is rattling, then could be loose fan blade, or the bearings are failing.
Hope this helps.
If it is a fan assisted oven, then you are likely to have 2 fans, an external cooling fan, and a fan inside the oven for ciculating the hot air.
So to answer your query, yes it is a noisy fan you are going to have to establish which fan.
It could be a worn bearing, or the fan blade has come loose.
If it is a worn bearing, thge only cure is a new fan.
Hope this helps with your problem.
Yes, it can be fixed quite simply.
First check that the fan is not catching the cover or grill, if it is not remove panel covering fan and see if the fan blade is loose,on the shaft, they are usually held on by a left handed nut., so to tighten go the oppisite way to what you normally do, if that does not cure it, then your only solution is to replace the fan motor complete.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and a merry xmas.
