Neff B1432 oven element and fan not working

My wife recently noticed sparking inside the electric oven, after which the element (around the fan) stopped working. On removing the backplate, I found the element snapped AND the fan not working. The fan turns freely if spun by hand. All other elctrics (hob spark, grill element, clock etc. seem fine. I have not removed the oven from its housing yet. Replacing the element alone is cheap and easy but what about replacing the fan too; is this mendable or am I looking at a new oven being the best bet? Barkecoa helped me with this problem 3 weeks ago (thank you) but the fan was not known about at that time. Would really appreciate your help again if possible.

If the element has failed again in such a short time , then I would suspect that the fan is the culprit.
If the fan is not working, then the element overheats, and burns itself out.
The fact that the fan spins freely, proves nothing, as the fan can be still faulty.
The only way to prove if the fan is faulty, is to remove the oven from the housing, and remove the rear outer panel of oven,.test with a meter set to ac mains and test the fan motor terminals to see if there is power there when oven is set to heat, disconnect the element first. ,if there is ,and the fan is not running then the motor is faulty..
If there is no voltage there, then problem is elsewhere, and you will have to investigate furher.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Common heating faults with Neff B1432 single oven


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the Neff 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.

Hi there, Neff B1432 was working perfectly this afternoon, but this evening when cooking 2 racks of lamb it wouldn't heat up higher than 50 degrees. Sounds like the thermostat...is this an easy job to...


Could be a faulty thermostat, but I would check that element is getting hot before commiting to replace the thermostat.
Run it for a few minutes and feel to see if you can feel hot air blowing from fan at rear of oven. If no heat present, thei it will be the elemnt that is faulty.

The fan comes on, but the oven does not heat up, this only happens when using the Circotherm setting, when using conventional heat it seems fine. Thanks for help.


I think you will find the fan element has failed, this will explain why it works o/k on coventional oven, as another element is used.
The fan element is located at rear of oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

Oven not heating up


If the oven fan is working o/k, then all you need to do is replace the oven element, a straightforward repair, and cost effective, if no fan, then could be expensive.

The heating element not working


Sounds like the actual element has broken (gone open circuit). I am sorry but you may have to buy a new one.

Nef B1432 (2000) not heating up properly


You possibly need to fit a new fan motor, as this will certainly cause temp variations, if it is not working properly.
If you remove the inner rear cover of bottom oven, you will see the element and the fan.Try spinning the fan by hand, it should revolve freely, and rotate on its own after spinning it by hand.
If it does not, then it needs replacing.
It is a fairly straight forward job to replace, just bear in mind that the fan is held on by a left handed nut, so to undo it , hold the fan blade, and unscrew the nut clockwise, as though you were tightening it up, and vice versa to tighten it.

You will have to remove the main rear cover of oven to access the the terminals and the fan motor.

Neff B1432 Oven Not Heating; oven light flickering


If the fan is working o/k then you need a new element fitting.
Remove the panel at the rear of the oven, there you will see the element, remove the fixing screws and ease the element forward,taking care not to lose the wires, disconnect the leads and fit new element.
The light flickering is probably the bulb not screwed in propely or a bad contact, nothing to worry about.
