How to remove a fan/motor from a Zanussi oven

Hi,i am trying to remove a faulty fan/motor from my Zanussi oven model number ZDF 866 W,i have removed the back of the oven and tried loosening the nut which holds the fan blade itself,but it just appears to be turning and nothing is happening,the initial problem was a very noisy fan/motor,if i could remove the old one and replace it i think it would solve the problem,any help appreciated.

Regards
Eddie.

Turn the nut the other way (counter clockwise and this should tighten tohe loose fan (which is what is causing your noise). Be careful not to strip the thread !

You are probably trying to undo the nut the wrong way.
It is a left hand thread, so to undo it, you go clockwise, as though you were trying to tighten it, and vice versa to tighten it up again. If you can't unscrew the nut, you will have to grip the fan spindle with something whilst you undo the nut.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My zanussi FM9232 fan assisted oven is not heating up, the fan is working


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 Zanussi manual.
If you're 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.
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.

Faulty main oven


If the fan is working in the oven, and it is electrically heated, then it will be a faulty oven element.
This is located at the rear of the oven behind a removeable cover.

MAIN OVEN FAN STOPPED WORKING


Firstly switch off the stove isolator(switch)

1:I would suggest removing the back panel and checking the wires to the motor to see if any terminals have broken/fallen off(on the Zanussi ovens you should be able to see these easily).Also check that the armature can spin freely.

2:If OK, Switch isolator and stove back on and check for voltage (230v) to these terminals.

3:If No 1&2 solutions have not solved your problem please come back to me.

Hope I have resolved you question, but please leave positive feedback if so , as it still takes time to answer questions and it would just be nice to know if I have helped.

Fan not working


Hi, its likely that the fan motor isn't working. (most times is just build up of grease) If you're good with DIY, remove the inside panel that covers the element and the fan, undo he nut CLOCKWISE, pull the oven out, remove the the back cover, remove wiring from fan motor, clean the motor with WD40, and give it a few turns to see if turns freely. Reserve the process.
Cheers

Oven not working


This tutorial will show you how to check your Zanussi element and how to replace your Zanussi 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 Zanussi manual.
  2. If you're 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.

Remove Outer Glass Of Oven Door


On my Zanussi ZDF 866 it goes like this:-

Rest the door with its top edge on your work surface. Once the bottom two screws are removed, pull the outer glass away from the bottom edge of the door just enough so that the brackets fixed to the outer glass (into which those two screws went) clear the bottom edge of the door. Then pull the outer glass up towards you parallel to the door (there are now screws hoplding the top edge on this model).

It may need one side to be pulled and then the other to release it from the metal slot at the bottom.

I would recommend great care with this given that a) your door may be different, b) it could be held more tightly and c) you are dealing with glass. Recommend taking all precautions including eye protection and suitable gloves. Proceed slowly and carefully (this did not need much force on my door). If you're not sure at any stage, choose discretion and either give up or pay someone to do the job to avoid paying for a new glass or hurting yourself.
Hope this may help someone.

Oven fan


almost certainly a problem with the fan and motor. try moving fan blade with a small screwdrriver thro the holes in the back panel to see if it is jammed. after that you are faced with removing appliance, remove back panel and check motor continuity
