Re: Belling Format cooling fan
I assume you mean the casing fan and not the fan inside the oven. this is controlled by a fan stat which is inside the casing. cheap part and easy to fit. iv forgotten the exact location but remember it located at the top

this one has a down draft grill on the top , does it not . if so fan is normal as you want it too continue to pull smoke down into filter bottom and not let it out all over kitchen , it times off as grill cools to a point not to let any more smoke out into kitchen
make sure you clean your down draft filter weekly more if your a daily user , these can become a real problem if left go
Is the control panel completely dead?? If the cooling fan under the cooktop was not working, in most cases the main control board or control transformer if it is separate will get heat damaged and need replaced. That cooling fan is there to keep everything from over heating mainly during clean but should come on during normal baking if it gets too hot under the cooktop.
Sounds like you have a oven probe or (if equipped) computer issue. From the looks of it, you dont have a computer on this model, so you probably have a thermostat stuck somewhere in there. The thermostat closes at the set temp, then opens when the unit cools. Sounds like this one is stuck in the closed position, allowing the fan to run all the time. You will have to look and see if you have a wiring diagram on the back of the unit, then find the fan wires and see which thermostat controls it. If no diagram, follow the wires out of the fan and see if on runs to a thermostat. Good luck and let me know if you need further info.
CREDA Kitchen Range -The cooling fan and oven fan run contiuously when the oven is turned off. The only way at present to stop them is to switch the stove off at the cooker supply box. When you switch it back on at the supply box, both the fans start start running again. How can I fix it ?
Many thanks Stu.
probably the fan jammed with crud but could be a faulty fan motor. remove the back panel inside the oven and the fan is exposed. try giving it a flick to see if it rotates freely. if no joy then the fan motor needs replacing. faily cheap part and not too hard to fit
It does seem a little long Pamie...but does this shorten if you leave the door open after use? If so, it could be that the fan thermostat is out of spec. Is this after just using the oven or after a cleaning...cleaning will run a fan or keep a lock on for several hours after the cleaning cycle.
as i recall, the fan is at the back just under the hob and is removable without removing the hobtop - just held in by 3-4 screws.
if i'm wrong and hobtop has to be raised, this is quite easy. take off the side panels and you will see 2 screws each side holding the hobtop on. don't confuse them with the screws which hold the plate retaining bracket in place but it is all quite obvious.
as a thought, are you sure the fan is faulty? the fact it is not operating doesn't mean it is faulty. the fan is turned on by a fan stat which may also be faulty.
This problem is caused by one of two components, depending on the model, there is a thermal cut in thermostat that keeps the fan running until the unit has cooled down and on some models there is a four wire timing device that keeps the fan running for a specific time after the temperature drops, the fault can only be casued by one of these components.
