Question about Ovens
Switch on oven, all going fine for about 7 mins, then the fan stops working. I leave the oven on for a few more minutes and the fan starts up again briefly and then cuts out again. we have recently replaced the thermostat and have replaced the oven bulb as that stopped working. The oven gets a lot of use, it is on for at least 1 1/2 hours on week days and about 3 on a saturday and sunday. Do you have any ideas which could help with this problem. Thank you.

does it turn off after the oven has got upto temperature if it does it is probably that your thermostat has gone as this cuts off as a safety feature if your oven gets hotter than the thermo setting then it will shut off to protect from over heating or causing a fire hazzard with high temperature are you sure you havent changed the timer as well cus you can set a timer for your oven to switch on at certain time and to also switch off after a certain time if you still have the manuall have a look through the timer section if you do not have a manuall then check on your makers web site these should have a manuall online for you to check first i would check that the timer is not on if i can find you a manuall online i will post back hope this is some help.................

First thing you would want to check is, make sure you don't have any issues with the electrical connection to the oven first. Possible cuircut breaker issue.
Check these things first, you are probably going to find a loose connection somewhere. If that doesn't fix your problem.
Let me know and we can go from there.

Fitting new bulb would not cause fan to stop working.
If it is getting hot, then there is something wrong with fan, try spinning fan by hand, it should be free, and continue to spin under it's own momentum.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.

It is probably the overheat safety thermostat that is operating due to oven overheating.
Check to see if the top cooling fan is working, and if it is built in, make sure it has adequate ventilation.
Please rate my advice.

The symptons you describe are typical of the fan motor bearings failing. you could try spraying the bearings with WD40, but this would only be a temporary solution, in the end you will probably have to replace the fan motor complete.
Hope this helps.
