The fan in the right-hand oven has started making a terrible noise when the oven is switched on. As this oven only works in fan-assisted mode, I can't use it. Can I buy a new fan and replace it myself, or is that a bad idea?
This noise probably means that the fan is about to stop working, this is what happened to mine. You can easily buy replacement fan off E-bay (it seems easier to find the right fan on e-bay that any of the confusing supplier sites). You then just need to remove the inside oven back and the outside electrical to replace the fan.
Rangemaster cookers come with a standard 2 year warranty so why have you people not been back to rangemaster for your in warranty repairs ??? By the way this was a massive batch of faulty fans that were sent to Rangemaster by a supplier, the supplier has promptly been dropped by Rangemaster (18 months ago) who now fit German EBM fans, some of the best in the business.

I have a Rangemaster and like yours is dual fuel. Gas hob and electric oven. The large oven is fan assisted but the small oven, on the right hand side of the range) is self cleaning and not fan assisted. Hope that helps. http://www.pricerunner.co.uk/sp/rangemaster_classic_110.html
Note: Also see fan thermal switches
oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within
either a cooking or clean mode of operation. · Control senses oven temperature
above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode. · Control senses oven temperature
above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode. · Stalled cooling fan or airflow
Look for welded relay
contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode). · Look
for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally
closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating.
Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled,
etc. · Look
for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit
due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed
terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint
on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor. · Look
for electrical noise interference in the oven temperature
sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone, etc.).
The fan blade may have come loose from the shaft or the fan motor bearings are shot. Repair is accomplished by replacing the blade or motor. If the fan is not operating correctly the magnetron will star to overheat and the oven will shut down.
It is going to be a worn bearing, or a loose or broken fan blade.
It more than likely means that you are going to have to replace the fan motor complete
One thing you can try is to spray the motor bearings with WD40, this may help to quiten it down
Hope this helps.
Noisy fan means bushes are worn. cant be repaired. needs replacement. Quote model of oven to spare parts supplier and replace. Make sure power is unplugged and not just switched off before repairs are done.
I have a similar problem with my Zanussi and discovered there is a seperate element arounfd the fan wihich I think may be burnt out. Could be a similar fault have you investigated behind the panels in side the oven?
If it is a fan assisted oven , then it sounds like a noisy oven fan.
It could be a worn or dry bearing in the fan motor. if you open the oven door , you should be able to tell if it is the fan by listening to it carefully.
The other possibility is if it has a cooling fan in the back or on the top of the oven, it could also be that causing the prob, these are about the only things that could be making a noise, as there are no other moving parts that could make a noise.
PLz rate my solution.
