Question about Ovens
We recently moved into a house with above oven installed.
After a few test I came up with the following:
1. If any "fan assisted" setting is selected the oven takes more than an hour to heat up. After appr. 60 min. the temp was 60deg C and didn't seem to increase.
2. If any conventional (without fan) setting is selected the oven heats up to the set temp within 10min. (which I think is normal)
3. If after the 'set' temp is reached (as done in nr 2.) any "fan assisted" function is selected the temp drops down till again around 50 -60 deg. in a couple of minutes.
HELP or any suggestions would be appreciated.
SOURCE: Fan assist wont heat oven
the ring element may have blown. if it works ok with the top and bottom elements, (the convection oven) then it is likely the element surrounding the oven fan.

On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

first of all the yellow/orange light glowing is a known fault. it needs a slight wiring modification to fix it, however it dose not affect the operation of the oven nor is it dangerous.
now to the heating problem, there is a round element at the rear witch surrounds the fan. is this element getting hot? if not then it most likely needs replacing. it could be the thermostat but more likely the element.
