    No this happens everytime we use the cooker, and we used the Oven numerous times, so its been run for more than an hour more than a few times.

    I have a Baumatic oven and the same problem - a petrol type smell when it's running.

    I can't find any solution online, or even mention of this problem.

I have just purchased a Neff U17M423GB built under double oven from JL. When I put it on preset timer for the bottom oven, the fan starts blowing cold air out of the vents above the top oven. When t

if this is gas it calls the induced draft motor to come on for 15 to 20 seconds to clear any residual gas before beginning the ignition process begins. Very normal and a safety feature.

My Neff eletric oven works on top and bottom heat, but does not heat up on the fan setting fan. It heats slightly and the fans works but it does not reach temperature.

You need to replace the oven element
This is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover, it is usually circular in shape

Smell has started in our 8 month old Neff oven. No obvious reason for it - pretty clean and no unusual food cooked. Any ideas ?

There may be a problem with the cooling or extraction fan on the oven. All Neff appliances come with a two year manufacturers warranty, so I would advise you call them out on 0844 892 8999. If you attempt a repair yourself, you could invalidate the warranty.
All the best.

Please help Fan not working in Neff U1451

Hi, the fan is one part and the bulb another. They are not connected. If the bulb isn't working simply unscrew the bulb lens and replace the bulb. About the fan motor, sometimes they cease up because the build up of grease at the back of the oven. You can try to remove the insid back plate that covers the element and fan, and try to rotate the fan manually. Try to clean it and test again. Last resource, it needs a new fan motor.

Unable to remove the fan blade on the neff u1721 oven (too tight)

The nut is a left hand thread, so unscrew it clockwise to release it, hold fan blade as you are doing this. Tighten anti- clockwise.

Fan oven element - HEEELLLLPPPPP !

one element, but you will need to open the rear of the oven to access and remove the 3 screws holding the fan and with a little bit of push and shoving you will be able to remove the screw behind the fan be careful the screw does not get stuck behind the fan. Putting the new element in will require bending the securing bracket slightly but don't worry it will straighten when you replace the screw behind the fan; which is easier to replace than when you remove it
