Neff fan element

Hello,

I have a Neff oven and am trying to change the fan element. there are 3 main screws attaching this to the back of the oven. 2 of them come off easily however the final screw is located behind the fan so it seems the only way to reach this is to remove the fan...

Any suggestions or experience of this yourselves? I am loath to remove the fan completely as it means opening the back of the over and also removing the motor that drives the fan.

Thanks,

Andy

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.

The usual method of fixing is 2 - 7mm nuts on posts coming out from the element base plate and 1 self tapping screw thro a small bracket on the periphery of the element. no need to remove fan

MAIN OVEN DOES NOT TURN ON HIGH


this could be the thermostat or the main oven element this sheet might help. For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS


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 NEFF element 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 element is 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 motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is 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 timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

Am trying to remove the element in my neff u1271n2gb oven but cannot get to the screw that is holding the clip that is attached to the element it is at the top mostly hidden behind the fan no-one seems to...


To undo the nut that secures the fan, unscrew it CLOCKWISE as though you were tightening it, as it is a left hand thread, and vice-versa for tightening it back up.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Problems with the fan on neff b1641 oven


Hi, from what you describing it can only be either the oven element (located behind the back plate inside the oven, hold by 6 screws, 2 at the top, 2 at the bottom and 2 on the sides). Switch off the cooker, remove this panel and have a look at the element, looking for unsual bends, corrosion, or burn marks. The other possibility is the safety stat located near the element connections at the back of the oven. Pull the oven out, remove the back chassis panel and inspect the stat.
Cheers

Changing an element on the main oven - Neff U1721 Double oven


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.
Thanks.

Fan oven element - HEEELLLLPPPPP !


one element, but you will need to open the rear of the oven to access and remove the 3 screws holding the fan and with a little bit of push and shoving you will be able to remove the screw behind the fan be careful the screw does not get stuck behind the fan. Putting the new element in will require bending the securing bracket slightly but don't worry it will straighten when you replace the screw behind the fan; which is easier to replace than when you remove it

Neff u1271 oven not heating


Found the fault. It's the heat ring in the main oven. MAKE SURE THE MAINS POWER IS OFF PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS WORK!!!!! 1.Simply remove the four screws that fix the fan surround in the main oven. 2.Remove the rear cover fixing screws and remove the rear cover. ( the cable passes through this so just rest it to one side ). 3.Remove the two push on spade connectors from the heater element ( positioned just down and to the right of the fan assembly ). 4.Remove the four heater element fixing screws from inside the main oven. 5. The tricky bit. . . There is one more fixing at the top of the fan in the main oven. I could not get the fan off its spindle, but the next step sorted this out. 6.Remove the three fan fixings from the rear of the oven. This allows the fan to wobble/move enough in the oven to remove the final heater fixing screw at the top of the fan. 7.Pull the heater element into the main oven. No doubt it has a very grey and flakey appearance to part of it! 8.Buy a new one and replace it in reverse order, remembering to replace all fixing screws as you go. 9. If you forget which way the cables on the heater element go, the one with the red marks on it goes to the left as you look at the back of the oven from the outside. ( nearest the fan assembly ) I know this all looks a bit long winded, but it really is quite simple if you follow the notes above! Hope this helps someone. Might just save a ridiculous call out charge from the professionals!!!! Best of luck, Keith.
