Bosch oven cooling fan is continuously on at the same speed and is on always no matter what the temperature is. Upper heating element does not turn red hot in broil mode.

The oven has internal fan at back of oven encircling the element that should get reshot when stat turned up high. Also there is cooling fan under lid to keep the wiring area cool.This should stay on for around ten - fifteen minutes after cooking finished. David "The Famous Forry"

The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.

Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

Have a stoves 720 es main oven fan does not stay on to cool oven after switch off> also the oven will not trun back on when it is still hot or warm ? will

First things first. There are two fans. One in the bottom oven and one to provide background cooling. The background cooling fan turns on when anything is turned on. (Fan oven/top oven/grill). Just operate the top oven for a moment and this should cause the cooling fan to operate. There is a printed circuit board that controls the cooling fan and for how long the fan should stay on once everything has been turned off. (About 7 mins). If this fan is not running then the fan/motor could be faulty, or the circuit board or the resistor on the fan terminal block. The reason the oven will not turn back on is that the residual heat in the oven unit as a whole against the fan oven, is probably too high which causes the overheat device to operate.
You will have to take the oven out of the kitchen carcass, take the top and rear panels off and get an electrician to test and found out which item is not working/failed. Try espares for parts.

Fan staying on


Yes, this is normal. The fan stays on for a period of time to help cool the oven.

But if it stay too long then it means that there has been a problem on the wiring programming connected to the fan

I have a Competence B1180, it cuts out after irregular periods of time, although sometimes it may even complete a cooking cycle, if turned off for 10-15min it will re-start, but invariably cuts out again...

Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.

If it is the external fan that is staying on as opposed to the oven fan then it is probably a faulty thermostat that controls the cooling fan.

Bosch HBN 455 Oven Cooling-Fan Issue

After the oven is switched off, the after-run of the cooling fan is controlled by an electromechanical thermostat switch. The fan can switch back on, due to residual oven heat that accumulates within the oven's outer case and reactivates the cooling fan temperature switch. Considering yours is making buzzing sounds and activates on and off, the fan's thermal switch may have dirty contacts or just be defective and require replacement.
