We cleaned the fan oven and now it doesnt work

We cleaned the fan oven and now every time we put it on after about a minute it blows all the electrics in the house and stops working. Can it be fixed or is it cheaper to just buy a new one?? We cleaned it over a week ago so we have let it dry out. The grill still works though??

Hi.

I have come accross this problem many times. ----always when it has been cleaned. Somehow the cleaner coats the element and creates a hot spot. This will cause it to trip the electric as soon a s its switched on or after the element has been on for a while!!

You may be able to remove the back cover ( the one you see when you open the oven door) and gain access to the element. Try and clean it with a damp cloth. If this fails then the only solution is a new element. You havent mentioned make so i cant price one up for you.

My email address is aardvark.repairs@btinternet.com if you weant more information.

My oven fan has recently started to make a very loud rattling noise for around 30 seconds once every few minutes while the oven is turned on in fan mode.


The fan needs be cleaned and lubricated. To do this: Turn off stove/oven. Remove fan cover plate. Remove fan. Clean and lubricate the shaft bearings with 3 way oil. Install fan and cover plate.

My oven is showing F6 EC TEMP on the screen how do I fix it? Please let me know.


F6: EC (Electrical Compartment) Temperature High

Fault is displayed when the EC thermocouple

exceeds 158?F (70?C). It is monitored once per
minute.

The electrical compartment is overheating. Remove the panel on the right side and clean out all the dust. Check the fan at the back and see if its blowing alot of air. Sometimes this fan can get so clogged up with dirt, it slows down the air flow.

When baking lots of hot air blowing from top vent


It is a good thing that the heat blows out. Electric oven didnt have anywhere to vent so the cpu boards got hot and burned up. So to correct this problem there is a little fan that blow out the heat so the cpu board doesnt over heat. thats all.. no worries mate

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.
