The munion heaters will get hot if the fan is not working to keep the box cold. The heater are there to keep the doors from freezing shut. The fan motor is bad from your description and will need replaced. I hope this helps. Please leave feed back. Thank you.

    The fan motors go bad all the time. I change a few a week. They are all made very cheaply. It does not matter how much you spend on a frig. They all use the same cheap parts. If you think it might be the wiring check it with a volt meter. I hope this helps.

Bosch oven cooling fan is continuously on at the same speed and is on always no matter what the temperature is. Upper heating element does not turn red hot in broil mode.

The oven has internal fan at back of oven encircling the element that should get reshot when stat turned up high. Also there is cooling fan under lid to keep the wiring area cool.This should stay on for around ten - fifteen minutes after cooking finished. David "The Famous Forry"

Everytime my charger is plugged in, my laptop decides to turn off. It gets really hot underneath. Do you think i'll need a new fan?

Check the vents. Quite often it's a build up of dust on the fan and surrounding area.
Give it a good blow out and see if that helps

Does the munion heater wire into the thermostat or in back of unit??

the munion heater needs to be hot all the time to prevent sweating so it should go to main power terminal strip if it has one ,or just to the main constant power box

Interior light stays on...light is directly beneath light is not cooling

HI. There is a door switch that controls the interior lights. This switch is also connected to the fan motor circuits. The actual door switches will be the lone culprits in your case. They are not functioning at this moment. This switch fault will effect the cooling process and cause an abnormally high temperature inside the unit, due to no Evap fan action and interior light heat.

Simply replace the door switches to correct the issue.

I suspect the cooling fan is burning/wearing out. Replaced the original bulb after 15 months of use. After the next 12 months similar noises and issues started again. Solution was to take off the cover for...

the fan has (maybe - check it) a filter screen between it and the outside air... cleaning this filter will increase airflow. cooling fans are really cheap and its a good idea to replace a fan that has had a hard job in a hot environment BEFORE it fails...
sorry, I dont know how to open the door though... maybe you'll have to take the entire case off... then you'll see how the door comes off for next time anyway - if you're "servicing" the set you could do worse than get the case off and clear the dust out.

Fan oven door, cooker surround and hob become burining hot when using fan oven

Sounds like a problem to me. Check your oven door gasket to make sure it's intact and also that the oven door is closing completely when this overheating occurs. Although some heat will rise, it shouldn't become "burning hot".
