Oven cuts out after ten minutes and comes back after cooling down.

AEG B2100-4 built-in oven. Oven warms up and holds stable temperature but then trips out after 10 or fifteen minutes. The element, light and fan all shut down. If you allow the oven to cool down the poweer returns after about twenty minutes. It behaves like this all the time.

Re: Oven cuts out after ten minutes and comes back after...

The control switch on our AEG B3000, a similar oven, had burned contacts which prevented the fan from running in one selector position where the fan was to run when the heating element cycled off. The tech replaced thermostat which was not problem at all. If the fan does not run in this mode the heat stays at the top of the oven near the thermostat and prevents proper heat build up. Switching to 100% convection fan mode solved problem until switch replaced and all switch positions worked again. Hope technician will now refund for thermostat which was perfectly fine. Always check thermostat in boiling water before replacing.

Hi, I have 90 AJC 06 GC. AEG single oven. At thhe moment when the oven is turned off the cooldown fan will not turn off so I have to turn it of at the main fuse box. Also sometimes the oven turns itself...

The oven cooldown fan will sometimes run for 10 to 15 minutes after turning the oven off. This enables the outer shell of the oven to cool down. Most ovens also have an inbuilt thermal overload in the outer shell. If the temperature in the outer shell gets too hot it will open circuit the oven power until it cools down a bit.

My AEG competence oven is making a loud buzzing noise coming from the top fan? The food tonight was either burnt or under cooked? The buzzing is also loud when switched off/cooling down? Any ideas please.

I would suspect that the problem is caused by the external cooling fan located under the outside cooker cabinet housing, which continues to operate as the oven is cooling down if it is built in, you will have to remove it from the oven housing to access the fan

My AEG B3101-4 oven works for about 30 mins, then seems to cut out... it won't work at all until it has cooled down, and then the cycle starts again... can you tell me which part is likely to need...

It is a safety thermostat that is cutting the oven off, due to overheating.
It could be that the external cooling fan is not working, or the cut out itself is faulty.
Check to see if you can hear the fan working.
This is usually located on the top of the oven , at the rear of the oven, on the top .
Hope this helps.

Aeg b3101 oven / grill cutting out

Ther are a couple of possibilities that could be causing your problem.
A thing called the safety stat could be cutting the oven out, it is designed to cut off the oven in the case of overheating This is what brings on the cooling fan. Sometimes they cut out prematurly for example you may not have enough vetilation, check for restricted or blocked vents.
The stat itself could be faulty again causing the oven to cut out,and then as it cools down it resets itself and so on and so on.
The thing to do after you hve checked evrything else is toichange the stat.
It is usually located on the top of the outer oven compartment, it is about 1" or so long with a feed in and out of it
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and merry xmas.

Could be a sticking thermostat, or a safety stat operating, this cuts off the supply to the oven if it gets too hot for any reason, then when it cools down a bit the oven comes back on,
If it is built in, make sure it has plenty of ventilation, and check the vents to see if clear..
The safety stat is usually located at the top of the oven under the top cover.
Hope this helps.

My oven turns off on me after only a minute never heating up fully

Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.

B3101 AEG oven cuts out after approx. 15 minutes - why?

this is probably the thermal cut-out causing the problem. not sure where it is located but possibly on the roof of the oven or in the rear casing near the fan. however, the cause may be lack of ventilation to the unit as a whole
