Cooling fan will not turn off

Model EOD43103x. Cooling fan does not activate when bottom oven on but wont switch off if using top oven even with no temperature set. I see there are 3 thermostats that control fan and a thermal limiter as well. Any ideas which one is best to look at first

SOURCE: Oven light always on, no heat

probably the clock not set properly - you have the oven on automatic. switch off at mains, wait 5 mins and set the clock according to the manual. if the over-temp stat has operated, the oven goes dead

SOURCE: Bosch HBN 455 Oven Cooling-Fan Issue

Our HBN655 had similar issues- the upper cooling fan would cycle on and off on a relatively quick duty cycle until the whole mess cooled off enough and it shut off.
My workaround is to turn the temperature dial off but leave the oven function dial on to BAKE. This seems to force the fan to stay on; then we shut it off a while later and avoid the annoying fan cycling.
(note- 2 years ago, our fan became intermittent, varying speed, etc... for about 2 months before it quit entirely. When that happened, the oven started to heat then the thermal cutout kicked in and the oven shut down entirely. We ended up replacing the fan and that fixed the bug... except now it's starting to act up again...)
(also note- the racks on this beast have a faulty design. if you have a heavy casserole and slide the rack out all the way, it tends push the sidewalls apart and the rack drops. I spoke with Bosch about this and they sent me new racks, no charge... so they know there's a problem. But the new racks don't fix the bug; they just make it harder to reproduce. I have actually had one rack fall with 2 piping hot casseroles on it. Fortunately no one was hurt.)

SOURCE: zanuisi top oven making noise

Yes , there is a cooling fan located at the top of the oven
It could be the fan blades catching, or a noisy fan bearing.
You would have to access it by removing the top oven cover to check., and yes it could be as a result of having it cleaned.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: My AEG competence oven is

I would suspect that the problem is caused by the external cooling fan located under the outside cooker cabinet housing, which continues to operate as the oven is cooling down if it is built in, you will have to remove it from the oven housing to access the fan

Top oven fan wont turn off unless I turn the cooker off at the mains


Cooling fan has the function to protect kitchen furniture from excessive temperature. The fan will cool the oven even you turn it off (not unplug from wall socket). This will happen only after the temperature decreasing below 70 degrees. If this does not happen then is faulty thermal cut-out which is located between wiring on the top and has 4 pins.

I have a eob6630 Electrolux cooker. Top element / bottom and work ok. But oven cuts out approx 20 mins when cookin. Then switches off. But comes back on when cools. Approx 20 mins. Can anyone advise about...


From my experience the most common reason for this failure is a thermal switch for cooling fan. It is located on the upper side between the wiring and its function is to switch off the cooling fan when the temperature drops even though the oven is already turned off. If the cooling fan does not work then it will increase the temperature on the cabinet and the main temperature limiter will switch off the oven.

Have a stoves 720 es main oven fan does not stay on to cool oven after switch off> also the oven will not trun back on when it is still hot or warm ? will


First things first. There are two fans. One in the bottom oven and one to provide background cooling. The background cooling fan turns on when anything is turned on. (Fan oven/top oven/grill). Just operate the top oven for a moment and this should cause the cooling fan to operate. There is a printed circuit board that controls the cooling fan and for how long the fan should stay on once everything has been turned off. (About 7 mins). If this fan is not running then the fan/motor could be faulty, or the circuit board or the resistor on the fan terminal block. The reason the oven will not turn back on is that the residual heat in the oven unit as a whole against the fan oven, is probably too high which causes the overheat device to operate.
You will have to take the oven out of the kitchen carcass, take the top and rear panels off and get an electrician to test and found out which item is not working/failed. Try espares for parts.

Bottom oven is not working even though the top one is 720EF model


When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
I hope this helps.

Stoves 720EF - main fan not working


When you say the main fan, do you mean the background cooling fan or do you mean the circulating fan in the bottom oven?
Do you have the handbook for this oven as the wiring diagrams are included in it. If you haven't, you can take a copy from my BT Digital Vault - all I need is an email address to register you.
Looking at the diagram, the power for the cooling fan comes via the timer board. If, as you say, the fan doesn't work at all, the timer board could have gone faulty.

Keeps going off when above 180 degrees, then back on again after 10-15 minutes ?!


Hi.
Without knowing your exact make and model I can only guess that your console cooling fan (sits at the top back of your oven) has failed. This is used to keep the the clock and controls from overheating. If it failes then a safety switch will activate and turn everything off in your cooker. when it cools down it will remake the contact and then switch everything back on again.

Hope this helps

My oven is constantly blowing out air at the front? Why


Your oven has a fan to draw in cool air at the bottom of the front panel, pass it around the case, and then blow it out at a position towards the top of the oven. This is a completely different fan that is at the back of the oven itself.

The cooling fan is necessary as the materials in modern ovens are kept light and thin as possible to save weight and manufacturing costs, however the flipside of this is that if not cooled by the cooling fan, they would be damaged by the heat inside the oven itself.

The cooling fan will continue to run for some time after the oven is switched off, because it will wait until the oven has fully cooled down before stopping the cooling fan.

I have a Competence B1180, it cuts out after irregular periods of time, although sometimes it may even complete a cooking cycle, if turned off for 10-15min it will re-start, but invariably cuts out again...


Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
