    the power supply needs to be checked using a multimeter the multi should be on 500 volts put the red on one cable black on the other the reading should be 120 plus volts in america 230 plus from the south country it should be same count as the power from your wall plug ( multimeters are available from eletronics parts supply shops) if the voltage is the same then the motor is bad take it back if there is a voltage difference then there is a fault in the power supply to the motor

    let me know how you go

When i use oven ...after sometime the fan comes on with a noise and its very disturbing to poeple around. Otherwise it works fine. is this normal ? I don't like noisy fan coming on.

It sounds like you have a faulty fan motor it is important you replace it immediately or if it stops your element will blow costing a lot more, so just replace the fan motor should sort the problem

What would happen if fan is disconnected noisy and not wanted?

Your cooker may have at least two fans, one for heating the oven cavity and one for cooling the electrics etc inside the oven. If the fan is noisy, check to see the fan has not come loose on the motor (maybe left had thread) if the fan is ok, then the fan motor may need replacing!

Noisy fan and no heat

Kitchen aid is made by Whirlpool. There is a very good chance the then thermal fuse on the back of the oven has tripped. Whirlpools are very prone to this fuse tripping after a clean cycle. The noisy fan is just that a noisy fan it will probably need replacing. I have replace a couple of them over the years. When you pull the oven out to replace the thermal fuse replace the fan motor at the same tiome.

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

The fan has stopped going round

When the oven (fan) is in use, it circulates warm air round the oven. This air, depending on what you are cooking, may be laden with oil/grease. This builds up on the inside of the fan cover. There are four self tapping screws in each corner of the cover. Undo these and the cover should come straight off revealing the fan and heating element. (The screw holes are offset so you cannot put the cover back upside down). Be careful of the thermostat sensor immediately above the fan cover! Grease/dirt builds up round the vent holes on the cover and may stop the fan turning. The dirt will have to be removed. I use the Lakeland brush on oven cleaner - it works a treat and don't worry about the stay clean surfaces, it cleans those as well.
When you have the cover off, try turning the fan manually to see if it turns easily and has not seized. If it doesn't turn then you will have to take the entire oven out of the kitchen carcass to access the back of it. If it does turn, then switch the oven on and see if the fan turns. If it does, you have found the problem, if it doesn't, then it looks like you will need a new fan motor. Don't leave the oven on too long as the element will not be cooled by the airflow as the cover is off. Let things cool down before you attempt to put the cover back on to stop yourself being burnt on the fan element! Try espares for a new fan.

My Zanussi fan over has suddenly started to be noisy what could be causing this.

It is going to be a worn bearing/s in the fan motor, normally the only soilution is to replace the fan motor.

Fan has stopped working in main oven,element is fine recently replaced (2008).Is this terminal or can it be repaired

It is usually better to have a new fan fitted than to try to repair it unless it is something simple like a broken wire.

Creda Cordialle fan assisted oven is so noisy what can I do?

If it is the fan that is noisy, check for loose fan or the fan blades catching the cover, if all o/k, then it will probably be a worn fan bearing, only solution would be to replace the fan motor.

I have a Smeg SUK80MFX oven. When the oven is on the fan is very noisy. How difficult is it to replace the fan motor ?

Not too difficult, but you will need to remove the back of the oven from behind to get to change the fan.

Then its a case of disconnecting the wires, unbolting the fan, fitting the new one and reconnecting.

Remember to turn off the power bfore starting work.

Candy oven noisy fan

Noisy fan means bushes are worn. cant be repaired. needs replacement. Quote model of oven to spare parts supplier and replace. Make sure power is unplugged and not just switched off before repairs are done.
