fan oven element video.1, If the fan motor . in 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 element .you 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. For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO
To remove the fan unscrew the fixing nut clockwise as though you were tightening it, as it is a left hand thread, hold the fan blades at the same time to prevent the fan turning. Ensure power is OFF.
Hope this helps.

You need to remove the element from inside the oven cavity, but it is a bit of a fiddle. Once you have removed the screws at both ends of the element you need to remove the fan blade to access the centre fixing screw. Once all srcews are remove you have to twist the element and pull forward to remove the wires from the hole on the left, then remove the wires and refit to new element.
Hi Steve...yes, these are a pain! Remove the centre fan nut (which is anti-threaded) then lever off the small locating washer underneath. If you are lucky, you will be able to now pull the fan blade off of the motor shaft. However, very often they won't budge!. If you try to knock it off, it is so easy to damage the fan motor (about £80!!). It is possible to leave the top bracket screwed to the oven and unclamp the element from it. I have come across three different typed of clamps so far. One is very easy to do. You can then remove the clamp from the new element and once the element is in place, use the old clamp. It's a fiddle but quite do-able. I have also come across these where the top clamp has been previously removed altogether by engineers on previous repairs! Hope this all helps a little....
It should not be neccessery to remove fan to fit new element, I have never had to do so, but if you need to remove the fan blade, then unscrew the nut clockwise, as though you were tightening it, holding the fan blade as you are undoing the nut
Plz rate my solution.
You should not need to remove fan to access the element fixing scew(s).
You may need what is called a torx screwdriver, if the screws are conventional screws, but some times a small screwdriver will undo them if they are not too tight.
let me know if you require any more assistance.
Plz rate my solution.
All of this can be done with the oven in situ. Take the back off if you like, but its un-necessary, dirty and time consuming. So here we go: Power off at mains. Remove 4 screws holding plate which guards the fan. You will be faced with the fan partially obscuring the top element retaining screw. At the centre of the fan spindle is a reverse threaded nut. WD40 the nut. Wait a minute or so and using a socket wrench and a flick of the wrist, the reverse thread nut should losen v easily. Having mastered the lock nut, tap the washer and it should become loose enough to remove by hand. If not, it just needs a little gentle persuasion with a flat head screwdriver where it sits on the fan itself. The grime will loosen and it will pop off. Squirt some WD40 onto the fan spindle, and wait a couple of minutes. Ignore any advice to lock onto the threaded spindle because if you damage it, your relatively cheap repair will become pretty expensive. Simply use a locking mole grip on the fan itself where the locking nut sits against it and pull and twist gently away from the spindle. You will be surprised how easy this is. Very little chance of damage. You can then access all 5 element retaining screws. Gently lever out the left foot of the element from the oven housing. Remove the spade connectors from the old element. Reversal of these instructions to fit the new element. Restore mains power. Reset clock or main oven will not work.
