Most likely the fan motor is burned out, go online and try to find a replacement.

The fan oven gets hot but food cooks more on one side than the other. Food needs to be turned for even cooking. Food also takes much longer to cook than stated on packaging.


packaging cooking times is only a guide... not exact

must be an electric range if it slow cooking

thats why professional cooks prefer gas

Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK


There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

I have a hotpoint freezer fza34 The red high temp


it could be that your fridge,freezer setting is not turned up high enough to keep the freezer cold enough.turn it up to setting number 5 at least and if that dont do it u could have a faulty thermostat.have it checked by a engineer.

Hi got a NEFF B1691 oven. Thing is the oven light, element and fan keep switching off during cooking is this correct functionality - if not what could be wrong? The temperature display remains functioning...


There does seem to be a fault, as the fan should run continuously even when the element goes off at the required temperature setting, and the light should atay on as well.
It suggests to me that there is a fault with the oven thermostat, or it is wired incorrectly.

I saw sparks? or small flame on back wall behind fan inside oven


It sounds likely that the fan motor is faulty,more so if the oven is heating to some extent.
You should be able to see or hear if the fan is working or not
Hope this helps with your prob.

I have a ge above range spacemaker xl1800 it seems to work fine except their is a rattling noise when its running it sounds like a bad fan or something comeing loose it seems like its comeing from under...


The noise you are hearing is due to the fan. The fan is used to cool the magnetron during cooking, and because this fan is not working the magnetron is overheating and the thermal protector is opening, killing power to the unit. All you need to fix this is a new fan blade. The fan blade(look for part #80) is slipping on the motor shaft ( the noise you are hearing).

GE XL 1800

If the blade is broken then you can buy a new one from---

GE FAN BLADE

Please ask for further clarifications.

A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you find it useful.

Thanks

Seems to be taking a long time to cook


To preheat oven just select the temp you intend to cook at and wait until the red light goes out,it is then preheated
Then you can put your food in and carrying on cooking.
Yes you do put it on fan symbol, but make sure it is on the right one , as some ovens have fan only as well as fan and heat.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Ignis Oven functions


Definately the control with 2 lines where the fan kicks in. The grill and oven elements will come on. The fan will disperse the heat from the grill element evenly and more quickly inside the oven. You will need to reduce cooking temperatures by about ten percent though,or youll burn your dinner. Also keep food down ,not too close to grill element at top of oven, middle is fine. Hope this helps. Regards..

Fan stopped working in JVM1533BD microwave


I assume you're talking about the hood fan which ventilates the cook top and blows air through the grille across the top. If so, it's okay to use the microwave with that not working, but if you boil something on the stove, an external fan is definitely needed to keep mositure from going up into the microwave controls. If the cooling fan INSIDE the microwave (behind the keypad) is not working, then you do NOT want to run it unit it is fixed. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
