Question about Neff U1721 Double circotherm Electric Oven

Fan oven element - HEEELLLLPPPPP !

Hope someone can help. I have a NEFF U1721 double oven. The fan oven has stopped heating & I assume that the element has gone (everything else works so the fuse ain't gone). My question is, is there only one element in the oven (ie at the back, surrounding the fan), or are there top/ side/ bottom elements too. Thanks for the help - I'm sick of luke warn food !!!. Matt, Northampton.

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

My Neff U1721 bottom oven has just stopped working - the fan still works, although is a bit noisy - what could be the problem/


Sound like the element has burnt out but if your fan is also noisy it is probley running slow which may have caused the element to overheat and burn out so it would be a good idea to replace the element and the fan motor

Common Heating faults Neff U1721 Electric 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.

Hi - have a Neff U1721 double oven, the element in main oven went bang cracked the element and blow a hole in fan cover. replaced the element but now temp light comes on but doesn't heat up, can you...


Test element check for continuity across the terminals and it is getting power when switch onon. If both ok, chances are the front selector switch has blown.

The fan and oven light in bottom oven works but not heat.


The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open
circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up )
If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )

Neff U1721 bottom oven not heating fan & light are ok


Yes it will need a new element, if the fan runs and temperature light comes on then the element is gone.

Lower oven not heating up everything else is working fine


hi, we have had the same problem. You can order the element from many places online, the cheapest is about £25 ranging up to £60 from neff themselves. Fitting it is ok the hardest part is getting the fan off to change the actual element. However, be warned, we are now on our 4th element and it just went again last night. Neff deny that this is a known fault that the elements keep going. However, at least 10 of our neighbours have had the same problem with their oven too!

Neff U1721 Double Oven - No Heat


If the fan is running then it is unlikely to be the clock/timer. Yopu need to check if there is voltage to the element but you MUST be careful to avoid an electric shock. There is sometimes a thermal cut out in line with the supply from the thermostat and that would need to be checked. If all OK the thermostat is the likely offender
