Neff u1271 oven not heating
Found the fault. It's the heat ring in the main oven.
MAKE SURE THE MAINS POWER IS OFF PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS WORK!!!!!
1.Simply remove the four screws that fix the fan surround in the main oven.
2.Remove the rear cover fixing screws and remove the rear cover. ( the cable passes through this so just rest it to one side ).
3.Remove the two push on spade connectors from the heater element ( positioned just down and to the right of the fan assembly ).
4.Remove the four heater element fixing screws from inside the main oven.
5. The tricky bit. . . There is one more fixing at the top of the fan in the main oven. I could not get the fan off its spindle, but the next step sorted this out.
6.Remove the three fan fixings from the rear of the oven. This allows the fan to wobble/move enough in the oven to remove the final heater fixing screw at the top of the fan.
7.Pull the heater element into the main oven. No doubt it has a very grey and flakey appearance to part of it!
8.Buy a new one and replace it in reverse order, remembering to replace all fixing screws as you go.
9. If you forget which way the cables on the heater element go, the one with the red marks on it goes to the left as you look at the back of the oven from the outside. ( nearest the fan assembly )
I know this all looks a bit long winded, but it really is quite simple if you follow the notes above!
Hope this helps someone. Might just save a ridiculous call out charge from the professionals!!!! Best of luck, Keith.
