Question about Neff H7871A2GB 800 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Removing the microwave door

We have the British version of the above Neff oven. We had an accident with some hot gravy which entered the cavity between the two glass panels which make up the oven door. I asked Neff UK how to split the door so that I could clean up the glass inside. They said to book a service call. I need to remove the door from the oven casing so that I can dismantle it and clean it. The door appears to be screwed together with torx bolts. Question (a) Is it safe to split the door? (b) Is it easy to separate the door sections once the door is off? I can get the oven out of its cabinet and have already renewed the oven light. Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks.

Re: Removing the microwave door

In many cases, microwave door panels are held together by hidden hooks or catches that ave to be separated by a thin, strong tool such as a putty knife. I've attached a photo that should serve as a good example.

Removing door assembly and replacing related parts of Neff B7740N0GB
It is helpful to have access to the spare parts diagram from the Neff website to visualise this procedure.
To work on the door it is best to remove it from the oven. With door partly open lift the whole door upward. The hinges slot freely into the body of the oven but are on very strong springs and it can take some effort to lift them clear of the body of the oven. Take care not to break the black plastic locking hooks.
Place the door on a flat surface front down, resting on the handle. The raised plastic back is clipped into place. Use a thin flexible tool to wriggle between the plastic back and main body of door, start on sides and bottom and gradually unclip. Once the sides and back are clear the top should come away easily. Note the part by the hinges is very thin and fragile.
Lifting away this back piece will reveal six small screws holding the microwave screen assembly to the front door panel. There are two larger screws that link through to the handle. Undo them all. The microwave screen assembly (which includes the hinges) is now attached to the front door panel with a series of fragile plastic clips hooking over the assembly. Gently ease these clips away, once the bottom clips are released the assembly should come away easily.
The microwave screen and glass door panels can now be cleaned, be gentle cleaning the microwave screen and ensure all is dry and smear free before reassembly.
The black plastic locking hooks can be replaced, these are attached to the microwave screen assembly with a spring and two hooks that slot into holes in the side of the microwave screen assembly.
To reassemble, reverse the procedure, ensuring that the panels are snapped back into place and screwed in securely.
To replace the reassembled door into the oven. The hinges need to be pulled back and held in that position but there will be a lot of resistance from the springs. Get a couple of medium size allen keys. Pull each hinge back to reveal a small gap between the hinge and the door assembly. Drop the shorter end of the allen keys into this gap, these should hold the hinge open while you fit it back into the main oven. Once the hinges are in the oven, with the door open still, retrieve the allen keys. If the door does not seem to want to shut the hinges are not fully located, try lifting the door and jiggling it to encourage the hinges to fully locate.

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.

All controls,lights,fans are normal. Turntable, microwave, convection do not work. Internal fuse?

There typically is an internal ceramic fuse. It is usually near where the power cord enters the oven, or behind the control panel (on over the range units).

The problem you are describing, though, sounds like it may be an open thermal protector on the cavity. Most are diamond shaped, with two wires. Unless the cavity is extremely hot, it should show continuity.

Cannot find the lamp on my h5972 model microwve

Isolate from mains, open oven door, look on left side of cavity you will see a rectangular panel with a screw at the top, remove the screw (torx20) the lamp is a small halogen bulb (like a christmas light). wear a pair of latex type clothes, pull out the old bulb (it looks like a small piece of glass with two small wires poking out). Replacement part is 491743. Probably best to get the new bulb first so you now what you're looking for.

Sparking inside microwave door

There is exposed metal, when magnetron is running it will arc if there is exposed metal in the interior cavity which is more common, I have not seen this inside microwave door, inspect door carefully when you open it to see if there are bare spots. The manufacture use to sell microwave cavity paint to prevent this very problem, if this is not corrected it will short out the magnetron.

How to replace inner glass panel on Neff H7871 microwave

Hi Bill, I am having a same problem I have managed to order the glass from:-

1. Open the door.

2. Take out the 2 screws just behind the handle, on the inside of the door, the door should flop down at the handle end.

3. Hold the door handle and pull the door out. It is only housed in by a slip in hooks at the bottom end.

4. Once you remove the door you will see the inner metal mesh and the inner door behind it.

5. Remove the 16 screws holding the inner glass with a special star type screw driver bit no T30.

6. Once you done that the glass housing holding the inner glass can be carefully prised free and taken off the inner door assembley.

7. Once you done that remove and inner glass, and be carefull to leave the glass glass seal intact, clean around the frame housing and the seal then replace the new inner glass and reverse the process.

PS. Becareful of the inner door once you've removed the outer door, as the hinges holding the inner door tend to shut quickly as there is less weight on the hinges.

It will do the job if you follow these instructions.Good Luck. AL

My h5470nogb/03 900 watt microwave cuts out after 20 seconds what is the problem please

Possibly the magnetron is not producing power and as the cavity temperature is not rising, it cuts out.
Is there an error code in the display?

Panasonic 1200 watt microwave shuts down in 10-15 seconds

Check the door switches to make sure they are not faulty, otherwise it may be the inverter.

IS the microwave in a cavity? If so, you need to have at least 15cm (6in) space above the microwave, 10cm (4in) behind the microwave, and 5cm (2in) on either side, as the latest Inverter microwaves run very hot and need a lot of ventilation.

Glass continually shattering on combination neff oven

That's a huge gap.

You might ask their customer service people to authorize the replacement of the whole door or the glass and the inner door panel where the gap is.

If they won't help you, you could clean it thoroughly, then carefully caulk the gap with high temperature caulk.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
