The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.

Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

Sounds like the cooling fan bearings are worn, hence the noise after you turn the cooker off.This fan is in the top of the oven and helps to keep the inside cooker electrics cool and often keeps going for a while after you have turned the cooker off. Best to call an engineer to check this out for you!

The oven keeps turning its self off

It could be the thermal cutouts operating. First things first, is the cooling fan running and does it turn off about 10 mins after the ovens/grill are turned off? If it isn't running then the unit is overheating and the thermal cutouts will operate. If it is running normally, then the cutout could be switching in early due to them becoming old and ineffective. There are two cutouts in the oven. One controls the main oven and the other controls the top oven. However, the grill operates without the clock being set, i.e. it is independent of the clock. So, if both the top oven and grill stop working together, according to the wiring diagrams in the handbook, the only thing it could be is the thermal cutout for the top unit.
F.Y.I. The top oven switch controls both the grill and the oven elements. In other words, in its OFF position, the Grill works and the Oven doesn't and in its ON setting the Oven works and the Grill doesn't. However, I can't see this failing as you specify, but worth checking if you take the oven to bits. The Grill will only work if the oven door is down.
If you need to replace the cooling fan, you will have to take the whole unit out of the kitchen cupboard to gain access to the top and rear oven panels, which have to be removed to gain access to the cooling fan and wiring. If you do replace it, ensure all the vents for air circulation are free from dirt and grease before you put it all back.
Try espares for STOVES spares. If the item is not listed you can ask them for a quote.
Be aware that the cooling fan is controlled by a timer circuit board and an in-line resistor on the fan terminal block. Either or both of these two and or the fan could have failed if the fan is not running! Any competent electrician should be able to work out what has failed.
All the diagrams are in the Handbook. If you need a copy, supply an email address and I will send you a pdf copy.
If you do ask for a quote, I suggest you ask for prices for all the parts mentioned above, so once you have checked what has failed, you will have enough info on pricing and availability as to whether to proceed or not.

My stoves 720ef oven keeps cutting out after 20 minutes and will not turn back on, the grill continues to work ok. I know the timer is set to manual so I guess it must be a thermal trip. As I do not have a...

There are seperate thermal (overheat) cutout devices for both the top and bottom ovens. First check to see if the lower oven fan is running ok and is not restricted by grease or fat (there are 4 self tapping screws that hold the fan cover on) and the thermostat is switching off and on as it should. You should also check that the main background cooling fan is running and switches off a few mins after the ovens have turned off. If these check out ok, then it is possibly the lower oven thermal cutout.

Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.

Oven will not stay on .I believe it may be the timer

You have to ensure that the clock is set correctly with the time and it is in manual mode and nothing else is set on it.
Also that the background cooling fan has to be running as the oven overheat devices will kick in. This fan continues to run for about 10 mins, once the fan oven/top oven/grill is switched off. When it is running there should be a gentle draft of air coing out of the gap between the top and bottom oven doors.
Do you hear any relays operating when the fan oven turns off?

Fischer paykel double drawer motor runs constantly and will start

Is it the actual oven fan located on the back wall of the cavity behind the fan shroud or is it the cooling fan which is at the top of the cavity and blows air across the top of the oven? The cooling fan can't actually be seen.

Oven fan keeps running even after off and door open

3 to 4 hours is a long time. Get to the fans (behind the control panel) and check the screens for dust. Chances are the screens are clogged with dust and need to be cleaned so the fans can move air for cooling better. I had this problem on my GE JTP14, and after cleaning just one fan it can keep up with cooling the electronic area while the oven is running. It runs much less often.

Safety first! cut the breaker before removing anything with a nice conductive screwdriver! Hope this helps!

F2 typically means an overtemperature condition. The cause could be welded relay contacts,a stalled or blocked cooling fan, blocked air flow to the rear of the unit or high resistance in the oven sensor leads or connectors. Check to see if there is any accumulation of dust bunnies in the fan. Do you remember if the fan has been running? There could also be a bad thermal switch. This tells the fan when to turn on and off. Unless you have some technical expertise, you may not feel comfortable checking on some of these causes. Be sure and turn off the power before poking around the wires and connectors in the top of the oven. There is usually a sheet of trouble shooting instructions in the top section of your oven which will give you some assistance. Good Luck.
