If you are not fitting genuine
elements, this is probably the reason they are failing so quickly.
You will pay a lot more for the genuine article, but they will last a lot longer.
Also make sure the fan is working o/k, as this can cause premature element failure.
please rate my solution.
Thanks.

    Remove the cover over the fan and element,, spin the fan by hand, and it should rotate freely for several revolutions without any resistance, it it feels stiff or does not rotate freely, then this is an indication that it could be failing.

As barkencoa says, cheap elements from ebay etc don't last long. I proved this myself when my Neff B1320 fan element blew. I replaced it with one for about £10 from ebay. It lasted about 11 months. Last replacement I fitted was from Currys Partmaster. So far it's ok after 6 months.

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

Common heating faults with Neff B1644 single oven


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the Neff fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the NEFF element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
2, If your NEFF fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see 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 then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and 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: no heat 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.

My neff fan oven keeps blowing it element is there something wrong wit it? I have a double oven and its the bottom one that keeps blowing


It is quite common for neff elements to fail, make sure you have fitted the correct wattage element to it, as there are more than 1 element that will fit it.

Neff Circotherm Double Oven keeps blowing elemrnts. Ie. only works a few times then only gets warm


I assume that you are fitting genuine elements, as opposed to cheap copy ones..
Make sure the fan is working o/k as well.
You also need to check the temp is correct, for this you need to have a oven thermometer to check it with.
Make sure the connections to the element are o/k as well.
Hope this helps with your problem.

The fans arn't working, have checked the element both visually and with a meter it's ok - any ideas? The cooker is approx 17 yers old, no identifable model on front, single oven


if the elements work but the fans dont are you talking about circotherm main oven fan or cooling fans ? there are 2 if its a double oven ,the age of your oven suggests they are gummed up with carbon after years of use and will have seized up.

hope this helps

3rd blown element


no connection between lights on fan. problem is that bulbs these days are poor quality (but cheap)
it is common for these circular elements to go. usually last about 2 years. worth checking tho that fan is turning at right speed
