Re: No heat in the main oven


We had the same problem - turned out to be the fan oven element - simple to fit - remove the back plate around the fan (6 screws) to expose the element. Remove screws securing element and disconnect wires (mark wires before removing) Our replacement was £40, but take the original as there are quite a few variants - you will also need the full ENR number (on side of housing) However, be aware that if this does not work, the thermostat may also have blown with the element. We were lucky as replacing the elelment fixed the problem.

The fan in main oven only blow out cold air

The fan does not produce hot air. It just circulates it. The thermostat turns on the heating element and the fan moves the hot air around. Unless you have an odd working machine. Baked bread for years an it only moves air for even heat.

Fan oven blowing cold

The fan inside an oven is usually for convection cooking. It circulates air that is already heated. It is not a heater.

Hotpoint BD35 oven fan not working

The air you can hear blowing will be from the exterior cooling fan, and nothing to do with the main oven.
You need to check to seeif you have got a feed to the oven fan and element, the supply comes from the oven thermostat on the control panel.
Hope this helps.

Electric main oven fan blows out only cold air

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEOTUTORIALS Nefffan oven element video1, If the fan motor in the back of the oven is going round andthe temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heatthen you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easyto fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with aelectric meter.
To gain access to the NEFF element you willhave to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will seethe fan and element, if youlook closely at the element you willprobably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes howeverthere is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie:broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.
2, If your NEFF fanoven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the foodmore on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you willsee the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven thenyou need To replace the oven fan motor is a little moreexpensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heatingand burning everything then you will need to replace your NEFF oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your NEFF oven is not working at all ie: noheat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode,simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
