I have a neff B6774N0GB combi oven. Activated the hot air button and it has tripped the circuit breaker. Fan element examined and looks perfect. Oven is isolated from other appliances


The hot air function uses a great deal more current than the other functions. Check the tag on the oven for current requirements, and check the rating of the circuit breaker in use. If the breaker is rated lower than the ovens rated maximum current draw, it will trip under the load. If the rating of the breaker is above the ovens maximum current draw, and there is nothing else plugged into that circuit, the breaker may need replacement.

I have a Maytag Microwave/Hood MMV4203DS00. Twenty minutes after its last use as a microwave oven, the Vent Fan spontaneously went on and the Display Shows: VENT...FAN..--5E-- (or SE?). The microwave...


"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame assembly (which comes with a new keypad) would have to be ordered and replaced.

It's actually a pretty simple DIY repair.

The frame assembly is part number W10258190 and you can get it for $67.98 (subject to change) from the Pros here. You can also order the thermostat (part number WB27X10567 ) from them.

Their is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad as per the photo below.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

The exhaust fan does not come on despite the control panel saying otherwise...all other functions seem to be working...when I do run the oven I do not hear the fan running then too...


It is vital that this problem get fixed, the fan cools the magnetron "heats food" so it won't overheat and burn out. The cause could be an open winding in the motor, or there is no power getting to the fan, I recommend an appliance repair man to get to the root of the problem.

hello,

what this means is partial contact problem from the internal wire from the power supply.

however, what you need to do tofix up your oven back to live i to unscrew your your oven from the luck key (stroll) and then trace down the wire to the element i.e heat provider and the fan to see which wire has gone wrong .

please before you can carry out this function you will have to disconnect any form of power supply on the oven.

The fan on our Kenmore microwave oven is not working.


My husband took the unit off the wall looked down into the fan and found a dead mouse keeping the fan from spinning. We removed the dead mouse cleaned up the area. Turned on the oven. The fan worked perfectly. Then he rehung the microwave.
Thanks!

Kenmore 665 68610891- built-in 1998 model


Fan relay on circuit board stuck. Give it a tap (the relay), to free it up. Otherwise get the relay or driver transistor replaced. Easy fix. Take it to an electronic repair place, not the brand agent.(They,ll just replace the whole board).If this Item is under warranty you should not be wasting my time.:::Spiceweasel.au
