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

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

TUTORIALS 1, If the Neff fan motorin 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 NEFFelement 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 elementyou will
probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however
there is no evidence of a fault but the elementis 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 motoris working you will
see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motoris not blowing the heat into the oven then
you need To replace the oven fan motoris 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 timerinto AUTO mode,
simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
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 )
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!
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
