Hi kyliebull,

Most ovens have a ventilator fan which keeps the oven housing cool. This will continue to run until the oven exterior temperature drops to 50 degrees C which, depending upon the cooking temperature used, could be 30 minutes or more. If the ventilator fan runs continuously, the temp sensor needs to be check. This problem often occurs when the temp sensor is registering a temperature over 600 degrees. The reason why the fan is continuously running is because the ERC thinks the oven is overheated and is trying to cool it down. It is probably a bad temperature sensor or oven relay board. You will need to test the temperature sensor with an OHM meter. They usually will read 1000-1100 OHMS at room temperature. If you get an open read or a incorrect OHM reading then I would replace the temperature sensor otherwise replace the power relay board if the temp sensor is reading correct. But try unplugging the power to the oven for over 10 minutes first and then plug it back in. This will reset the ERC and might fix the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I fix a continuously running upper oven fan


Without knowing the make and model, this is a guess, the fans usually run for some time after switch off, to allow cooling I am guessing this carries on until you isolate the mains. If so you have a thermostat problem. It would be easier to de-fine if there were more information.

Put an AC Amp meter (preferably a logging type) on to the unit for when using it. See if it exceeds that of the circuit breaker or fuse. Most of these appliances pull about the maximum allowable load from the mains supply. If the Amps never exceeded the rating of the breaker or fuse, this means the problem is with the electrical panel.

I have seen a defective heating element in appliances cause the tripping of a circuit breaker in the electrical panel. With age the element becomes a little lower in resistance at times, and thus is drawing slightly too much current. Replacing the element fixed it.

During cooking the oven goes off. There is often a lot of water/steam present. Sometimes after a while it comes back on?


It could be that the overheat thermostat is kicking in, albeit earlier than it should do. Have you checked to see that the oven thermostat is working correctly and is not heating the oven up too much ( does the neon go off and on) and is the oven cooling fan running ok in the background. If these two appear to be ok, then you may need to replace the overheat thermostat.
(The oven cooling fan should remain on for about 5 to 10 mins after either oven or grill has been used. If this isn't happening or it is not running correctly then that is why the overheat device is shutting the oven off). As a thought, are the top oven and grill working ok? if they are, then it narrows it down to either the oven thermostat or the overheat sensor.

Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.

Oven stopped working halfway through cooking. grill still works but top oven also stopped working


Sounds like to overheat device(s) kicked in. Is the background cooling fan still operating? i.e. that is the fan that continues to run for about 10 mins once everything on the device is switched off.
As well as hearing it, you should be able to feel a gentle draft of air coming out of the gap between the top and bottom doors.

Oven will not stay on .I believe it may be the timer


You have to ensure that the clock is set correctly with the time and it is in manual mode and nothing else is set on it.
Also that the background cooling fan has to be running as the oven overheat devices will kick in. This fan continues to run for about 10 mins, once the fan oven/top oven/grill is switched off. When it is running there should be a gentle draft of air coing out of the gap between the top and bottom oven doors.
Do you hear any relays operating when the fan oven turns off?

My stoves 720ef oven goes off if it turned up over 140 deg c also the grill in the top oven does not get red hot


Is the cooling fan running in the oven? Does it also continue to run when the oven controls are turned off to let the oven cool down?
There are ventilation grills below each door on the oven. You can see these when the doors are fully open, just look under each door to see if they are clear and not blocked up.

COOLING FAN DOES NOT STOP AFTER HOURS


Hi I am Vortash the cooling fan must be controlled by a thermostat , it appears that it has a problem on it and is not shutting off .
They are usually normally open contact switches that are on the top or the side of the oven ,they heat up close the connection and turn the fan on . yours sounds as if it is sticking . Other ovens are controlled by a rheostat a long tubed thermostat that goes to a main control consul on the oven , it controls the fan and responds to what the stat tells it .
It may be this controller is not turning the fan off afterwards , my suggestion is that unless you are electrically trained you get the help of a service engineer to check your oven out .... regards Vortash

The fan is in place to cool the electronics it will run after the unit is off it is possible you have a bad sensor on the fan circuit leaving it to run too long
