Hotpoint fan oven motor removal

I am having difficulty removing the fan blade inside the oven. The ***** which holds the fan blade onto the motor shaft is difficult to release, i.e. it is locked on tight. My question is should I be trying to LOOSEN this ***** in an anti-clockwise direction or a clockwise direction, i.e. does it have a right or left hand thread.

Thanks for your help

Neff circo therm need to replace cooling fan


Isolate mains.Remove oven cavity back panel (4/6 phillips or 4/6 Torx 20 screws)Remove fan blade (reverse thread nut)....this is sometimes where you come unstuck, because the blade just won't budge.If that happens I normally then remove the back panel of the unit itself (doesn't need to come all the way off, I will usually leave the mains connections on and let it fall back as far as it will go safely...may have to loosen the cable clamp to get some slack on the mains)You will now see the other side if the fan motor.Remove the L and N (not pole sensitive so they can go on the new one either way).Remove the 3 Torx20 screws holding the fan in position. (some models have an extra spacer ring so be careful you don't lose them)Go back to the cavity and use something to give the motor shaft a whack to release the fan blade, bearing in mind that if it does budge the motor itself is going to fall out the back (stick an old towel etc to cushion the fall and protect the terminal block etc).The new fan usually comes with the blade attached, separate the parts, install the motor, attached electrical connection and then the fan blade, make sure its tight. At this point I would close up the back and just hold in place with one screw and test that the fan works. (don't forget that the oven will not operate when the clock is flashing, so set any time on the clock before selecting circotherm)If everything looks ok, get it back together and in housing and run upto 150 or 200 degrees as a last test.Good luck, let me know how you get on or if you need any further clarification. Please post the outcome as this will assist other users of the site looking for solutions to similar problems.All the Best.

The main oven fan in Hotpoint BD32B is sticking (tries to rotate but goes slow and stops). I need to either re-lubricate the existing fan or replace it. How do I remove the fan?


Remove the cover at the rear of the oven compartment, then holding the fan blade with one hand, undo the nut holding the fan on, it is a left hand thread, so turn the nut clockwise as though you were tightening it.
To remove the motor itself you will have to undo 3 screws securing the fan motor from inside the oven compartment, then remove the outer rear cover of oven to remove the motor.

Replace oven fan motor


Take out the shelves and side hangers. SWITCH OFF.
There is usually a panel at the back of the oven cavity, undo the screws around it to access the fan blade. At this point you should be able to determine if there is another panel that the fan mounts onto that comes out through the front. (unlikely). Undo the centre nut on the fan blade which is usually a left hand thread - turn clockwise to undo. Take off the fan blade.
Next you gotta get to the rear of the oven and remove the back panel to access the fan motor. Once inside note down where the wires go. Remove wires from motor.
Back inside the oven cavity you will find screws that hold the motor in place (often three). Have someone hold the motor while you undo them. The motor should now be withdrawn from the rear.
Replace motor in reverse order.

How do I remove the fan from an electrolux EGC652 oven


Hello,
The model no. does not seem correct.but it seems as if the hole in the fan blade which is normally D shaped has worn round.The thread on the shaft is Left handed and you will need to undo by turning clockwise. If you can get a vice grips at the back of the blade to hold the shaft then try again,or you will need to get into the back casing and try jamming the shaft at the motor housing you may need some help.Then if that works you will need to undo the 3 bolts holding the Motor body to the rear casing.The new fan would normally come with new bolts,blade and nut.To tighten fan blade nut use a 10mm socket hold the fan blade and tighten anticlockwise.Hope this is helpful.

Good luck.

Changing Smeg SA280X/1 fan motor, shaft nut stuck?


Most fan blades are held on by a single nut, which is usualy a left hand thread, so to unscrew it you turn it clockwise as though you are tightening it up.and to tighten it,anticlockwise..
If the spindle turns, then you will have to hold it with a pair of grips or similar.
Plz rate my solution.
Thabks.

Remove rear panel in back of oven, there you will see the fan,remove fan blade,usually left hand thread, and remove screws that hold fan, if they are not accessable from inside the oven then you will have to remove oven from housing, and remove rear outer panel to access fan screws and connections.

Can not remove element


Hi there. Dunno if you solved your problem but I had exactly the same. I did a bit of digging on this website and found the solution which worked. Basically, undo the three bolts holding the fan motor onto the back of the unit. This should allow enough play on the fan from the inside to wiggle (technical term) the bolt free and replace on the new element. Reposition and secure the motor. Hope this helps. Matt
