Problem with main fan oven - electric

The fan assisted electric oven will cut out when using for longer periods of time or at high temperatures. The oven turns off ( including the fan ) and cannot be turned on again. All other functions on the cooker still operate ( e.g. the small oven ). Note that this is not the normal temperature control/regulation. This is a complete power cut out to the main oven. When left for 30 mins ot 1 hour the oven can be operated again. This happens at around 30 to 40mins at the highest temperature and takes longer at lower temperatures - making it difficult to cook the Christmas Turkey! The cooker is 3 years old but this started to happen when it was around 12 months old. Any ideas would be appreciated Thanks Nibor

    Thanks - Based on your options I am sure its connected with casing fan or its tehremostat as I have never heard the sound of a secondary fan operating ( even when new ! ).

    I presume that this would be difficult to fix on my own

There is an overheat stat and this is operating and cutting out the oven. the causes are several but here are the main things to look for: oven stat is faulty causing the oven to overheat. you should check over the range to see if stat is reasonably accurate. overheat stat itself is faulty. there is another stat which turns on the casing fan. (this is the fan which is out of sight - not the fan inside the oven) if this stat is faulty and not turning on the casing fan, then the overheat stat will operate. the casing fan is faulty or jammed. lack of ventilation. see if you can narrow it down a bit and get back to me if you wish

    not too difficult to replace - normally accessible by taking rear casing off.

I have a Competence B1180, it cuts out after irregular periods of time, although sometimes it may even complete a cooking cycle, if turned off for 10-15min it will re-start, but invariably cuts out again...


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 turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.

Dear Sir, My parents have a President Double Oven Model SB431. It only has fan assisted oven, not conventional use. Is it possible to disconnect the fan so making it a normal oven?


It was as simple as the expert advised me.

Having removed the back panel on the cooker, the fan cover was removed and the electrical connection cut.

The fan no longer runs, and the oven is now a conventional oven again.

problem solved:)

Oven not getting hot


The fan oven element needs to be replaced in the Hotpoint 6150 cooker.
Access is by removing the inner rear cover of the oven, there you will see the element.
Replace with a new one.


It is possible the base element is faulty in the top oven of the Hotpoint EW95,
The other possibility is that the high speed grill element is only part working.You need to check both these elements.
If the fan is working o/k in the main oven , but not getting hot, then you need to replace the element.
If it does heat, then it could be a faulty thermostat or possibly selector switch.
Unless you have a good working knowledge of electrics and know how to use a meter, then I would suggest you call some one in.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Hello, my problem will soon be resolved by employing a professional smeg electrician who said I needed a new thermostat. Thank you for reading but I no longer need 'fixya' assistance this time around.

Oven light


This is done to regulate the temperature. Higher heat settings will let the element stay on longer, while lower settings will turn it off sooner. Even on high, the elements may turn off periodically because there is a switch called a temperature limiter. Its job is to keep the element from overheating.

Electric oven fan


This problem is caused by one of two components, depending on the model, there is a thermal cut in thermostat that keeps the fan running until the unit has cooled down and on some models there is a four wire timing device that keeps the fan running for a specific time after the temperature drops, the fault can only be casued by one of these components.
