Question about Neff U1721 Double circotherm Electric Oven

1 Answer

No heat generated in lower oven

I have a NEFF U1721N2GB, and recently discovered the lower (main oven) had no heat. The lights and the fan both work. I'm guessing the main element has gone. However there are two types of element available for this oven, an 1800w element or an 1.7kw element.
Which one should I choose?

You are quite correct in saying that the element has failed.
As regards the wattage , it should be stamped on the fixing plate of the element, if you cannot see it there then opt for the lower wattage one, it will not make much difference to the oven ,as there is only100watt difference between the 2., and that is nothing to worry about.

Plz rate my solution to your prob.
Thanks.

Neff single oven won't heat up. Replaced the main element and grill heats but when switched to fan oven the fan and light comes on but no heat?


If the fan is working o/k, then the element is faulty, or it is not getting power to it, you need to test with a meter for a supply to it.

MAIN OVEN DOES NOT TURN ON HIGH


this could be the thermostat or the main oven element this sheet might help. For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS


1, If the fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the NEFF element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
2, If your NEFF fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your NEFF oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your NEFF oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

Lower oven not heating up everything else is working fine


hi, we have had the same problem. You can order the element from many places online, the cheapest is about £25 ranging up to £60 from neff themselves. Fitting it is ok the hardest part is getting the fan off to change the actual element. However, be warned, we are now on our 4th element and it just went again last night. Neff deny that this is a known fault that the elements keep going. However, at least 10 of our neighbours have had the same problem with their oven too!

Yes ,it is the element.

Can not remove element


Hi there. Dunno if you solved your problem but I had exactly the same. I did a bit of digging on this website and found the solution which worked. Basically, undo the three bolts holding the fan motor onto the back of the unit. This should allow enough play on the fan from the inside to wiggle (technical term) the bolt free and replace on the new element. Reposition and secure the motor. Hope this helps. Matt
