Changing Smeg SA280X/1 fan motor, shaft nut stuck?

I am stuck with a simple issue I believe with a burnt out fan motor Sequence power off removed oven rear plate removed element used flat head screwdrive on the round nut at the front of the fan blade on the fan motor shaft used vice grips on small round nut in front of the fan blades fan now turns independently as it seems I have damaged something?
Problem is for the life of me I cannot remove the small nut at the front of the fan blade so as to be able to remove the fan blade then undo the fan motor 3 mounting screws
How do I remove that round nut or is it in fact two nuts counter locking each other
Which way to undo it? Whats the trick
Really appreciate your help as I am stuck with what appears to me to be a simple job to remove this round nut.
Cheers
Roger

    Worked after I also added some teflon lubricant and let it soak in.
    Having tried to undo it the wrong way did not help no doubt and caused the fan to shear from the nut.
    Am I correct in assuming that the nut is attached to the fan as I will now need to buy this part as well.

Most fan blades are held on by a single nut, which is usualy a left hand thread, so to unscrew it you turn it clockwise as though you are tightening it up.and to tighten it,anticlockwise..
If the spindle turns, then you will have to hold it with a pair of grips or similar.
Plz rate my solution.

    Hi Roger.

    The nut and fan blade assy are normally 2 seperate items.

    If you are replacing the fan motor, it should come with a new fan and fixing nut.

Replacing the circular element


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

How do I remove the fan from an electrolux EGC652 oven


Hello,
The model no. does not seem correct.but it seems as if the hole in the fan blade which is normally D shaped has worn round.The thread on the shaft is Left handed and you will need to undo by turning clockwise. If you can get a vice grips at the back of the blade to hold the shaft then try again,or you will need to get into the back casing and try jamming the shaft at the motor housing you may need some help.Then if that works you will need to undo the 3 bolts holding the Motor body to the rear casing.The new fan would normally come with new bolts,blade and nut.To tighten fan blade nut use a 10mm socket hold the fan blade and tighten anticlockwise.Hope this is helpful.

Good luck.

I have a Smeg SUK80MFX oven. When the oven is on the fan is very noisy. How difficult is it to replace the fan motor ?


Not too difficult, but you will need to remove the back of the oven from behind to get to change the fan.

Then its a case of disconnecting the wires, unbolting the fan, fitting the new one and reconnecting.

Remember to turn off the power bfore starting work.

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.

It would appear that the main oven element is not working. I had a power cut whilst using the oven recently and have only just realised that the oven will not heat up. Everything else is working ok. If it...


If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown
