To undo the nut that secures the fan, unscrew it CLOCKWISE as though you were tightening it, as it is a left hand thread, and vice-versa for tightening it back up.
Please rate my solution.

On this one you need to take the fan blade off to get at the fan oven element


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.

the screw hole has corroded from steam and now the screw is to small there is a repair kit for this but a technician would have to repair it alternately you could screw in a slightly wider not longer screw but its only a temp fix.

My oven keeps tripping the electric


It will be the ring element, short circuit. This is the element that runs around the fan behind the backplate in the oven. It can be replaced by isolating from the mains, remove the 4-6 screws hold the backplate on. remove the two screws on the element brabket and one screw holding the element in position at approx 4 o' clock. Be very careful removing the element at the bracket, ease it out very slolwly so as not to detach the spade connector and wiring. A replacement can be obtained from ebay, espares etc or neff direct via there website (link to spares shop). Make sure the wiring goes back on the new element as it came off the old one. Replace screws and backplate and it should be sorted.
Hope this helps

Fitting a new heating element Neff U1721


You need to remove the element from inside the oven cavity, but it is a bit of a fiddle. Once you have removed the screws at both ends of the element you need to remove the fan blade to access the centre fixing screw. Once all srcews are remove you have to twist the element and pull forward to remove the wires from the hole on the left, then remove the wires and refit to new element.

Removing a Fan


It should not be neccessery to remove fan to fit new element, I have never had to do so, but if you need to remove the fan blade, then unscrew the nut clockwise, as though you were tightening it, holding the fan blade as you are undoing the nut
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Unable to remove the backplate off Neff oven


If there are no screws at the rear of the oven compartment that you can see to remove, then you will have remove the oven from the housing, and remove outer rear panel of oven to access the element.
Check the 4 fixings again, because on some ovens , they are not using coventional screws, they are are using what are called Torx screws, and you need a torx screwdriver or key to undo them.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Neff fan element


All of this can be done with the oven in situ. Take the back off if you like, but its un-necessary, dirty and time consuming. So here we go: Power off at mains. Remove 4 screws holding plate which guards the fan. You will be faced with the fan partially obscuring the top element retaining screw. At the centre of the fan spindle is a reverse threaded nut. WD40 the nut. Wait a minute or so and using a socket wrench and a flick of the wrist, the reverse thread nut should losen v easily. Having mastered the lock nut, tap the washer and it should become loose enough to remove by hand. If not, it just needs a little gentle persuasion with a flat head screwdriver where it sits on the fan itself. The grime will loosen and it will pop off. Squirt some WD40 onto the fan spindle, and wait a couple of minutes. Ignore any advice to lock onto the threaded spindle because if you damage it, your relatively cheap repair will become pretty expensive. Simply use a locking mole grip on the fan itself where the locking nut sits against it and pull and twist gently away from the spindle. You will be surprised how easy this is. Very little chance of damage. You can then access all 5 element retaining screws. Gently lever out the left foot of the element from the oven housing. Remove the spade connectors from the old element. Reversal of these instructions to fit the new element. Restore mains power. Reset clock or main oven will not work.

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
