Hotpoint fan oven motor removal

Sorry for the delay in feed back but excellent advice. With a clockwise twist, the locked nut came off. Obviously I had been tighting it on even more before!!
Stage two of the problem! It looks as though the fan blade should just slide off the motor shaft, there are no obvious things holding it on. however, the fan blade refuses to slide off the shaft. Brute force does not move the blade at all. It has an appearance of being rusted on?
Any thoughts - advice to get me past stage two would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

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.

Fan in main oven does not come on when oven is switched on,there is a delay of sometimes up to fifteen minutes oven has often reached desired temp from element at back of oven without fan operating. When ...


The fan motor is obviously faulty, the only real solution is to fit a new fan, if you do not, then the element is in danger of burning out, do not delay replacing the fan motor.

Fan not working


Hi, its likely that the fan motor isn't working. (most times is just build up of grease) If you're good with DIY, remove the inside panel that covers the element and the fan, undo he nut CLOCKWISE, pull the oven out, remove the the back cover, remove wiring from fan motor, clean the motor with WD40, and give it a few turns to see if turns freely. Reserve the process.
Cheers

How to remove a fan/motor from a Zanussi oven


You are probably trying to undo the nut the wrong way.
It is a left hand thread, so to undo it, you go clockwise, as though you were trying to tighten it, and vice versa to tighten it up again. If you can't unscrew the nut, you will have to grip the fan spindle with something whilst you undo the nut.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

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.
