I have noticed that the fan oven in our Stoves Range cooker is staying warm all the time.
The top and sides of the inside of the oven are warm to touch - sufficiently to make the racks warm (not so hot you can't touch them). Something is obviously not switching off properly despite the oven control being off - can you help please by telling me what is causing this?
I assume you mean if the main electrical isolation is switched to on , the oven heats up even though the oven switch is correctly set to off ......if this is the case you require a replacement thermostat for the upper or lower oven

The top cooling fan is not working which cools the electrics above the oven and the control panel at the front. It could be the fan is faulty , the pcb which controls it is faulty - inside back panel on right. There is also a resistor on the power to the fan which burns out. All easy do it yourself fixes if you are electrical competent.
There is a cooling fan In a STOVES 720 to keep the fabric of the oven cool. If this fails the overheat thermostats will cut in and shut the heating elements off. The cooling fan does in fact blow air out of various places in and around the doors. The top oven has a small element and takes a long time to warm up. If you are not confident that the thermostats are working correctly, then I suggest you purchase an oven thermometer from someone like Lakeland and see how that relate to what you are actually setting on the cooker dial. As I said the top oven leave a lot to be desired!
First things first. There are two fans. One in the bottom oven and one to provide background cooling. The background cooling fan turns on when anything is turned on. (Fan oven/top oven/grill). Just operate the top oven for a moment and this should cause the cooling fan to operate. There is a printed circuit board that controls the cooling fan and for how long the fan should stay on once everything has been turned off. (About 7 mins). If this fan is not running then the fan/motor could be faulty, or the circuit board or the resistor on the fan terminal block. The reason the oven will not turn back on is that the residual heat in the oven unit as a whole against the fan oven, is probably too high which causes the overheat device to operate.
You will have to take the oven out of the kitchen carcass, take the top and rear panels off and get an electrician to test and found out which item is not working/failed. Try espares for parts.
We had ours fitted by a Stoves engineer who said he had the same cooker. He also told us that sometimes the fan will stay on after you have finished using it. The reason is, there will still be heat coming from the cooker or grill after use. For that reason, the fan stays on for a bit afterwards. Its just a safety precaution so that the knobs dont get too hot.
most common fault is the cooling fan is failing to come on, whreas the fan will be okay ( check windings with ohmn meter ) it will normally have a ceramic 10k resitor in series with the live which goes open circiut
Either teh grill element or the oven heating element is fault or the thermostat or grill regulator, locate which element is warm, if the grill then it is most likely the regulator, if it is the oven it is the thermostat.
