Question about Ovens

Convection oven fan blade keeps coming loose. I know it's held on with a left handed nut, and I've tightened it several times but it keeps coming loose. What can I do to keep it from spinning off the assembly?

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.

Our fan seems to make a loud rattling noise


Hello, Happy new year ! Now for the oven problem. Do you know if it is the convection fan in the oven cavity or the cooling fan in the cabinet ? If it is the conv. fan, it's quite likely just a loose fan blade. remove the rack's and then the cover of the fan and you should be able to inspect the fan blade and more specifically the retaining nut at the center. You can tighten it if loose,( carefully they tend to bend easy ) but be sure the fan itself isn't bent or damaged in some fashion. If that doesn't solve the problem let me know I'll try to direct you to the cooling fan, however it is much more involved and I typically suggest a pro tech. Hope this help's, good luck and thank's for visiting "fixya" today. Macmarkus :)

NEED TO FIT REPLACEMENT ELEMENT IN LOWER OVEN TOP SCREW BLOCKED BY FAN


To remove the fan unscrew the fixing nut clockwise as though you were tightening it, as it is a left hand thread, hold the fan blades at the same time to prevent the fan turning.
Ensure power is OFF.
Hope this helps.

Kitchenaid convection oven fan rattles/noisey


Sometimes the fan blade mounting nut gets loose. Remove the cover from the fan and see if the blade wobbles. If so,tighten the nut on the fan motor.

How to remove a fan/motor from a Zanussi oven


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.

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


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.
Thabks.

Yes, it can be fixed quite simply.
First check that the fan is not catching the cover or grill, if it is not remove panel covering fan and see if the fan blade is loose,on the shaft, they are usually held on by a left handed nut., so to tighten go the oppisite way to what you normally do, if that does not cure it, then your only solution is to replace the fan motor complete.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and a merry xmas.
