Question about Smeg A1A.1 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Electric oven fan

When cooking is finished the fan usually continues for a period of time too cool oven down and then switch off. Now the oven fan stays on permanently after switching oven off and the only way too stop the fan is to switch cooker off at the mains.

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.

I have a russel hobbs CJ/AL28 microwave,the fan has stopped working .I have removed it from appliance and it works independantely .what can be wrong withit?


With a basic microwave there is a minimum of electronics and the fan starts when the oven is switched on and continues working until cooking has finished. In that case the fan is supplied from the timer and the circuit will be simple to check using a multimeter.

The more upmarket microwaves contain a great deal more electronics and the fan will continue to run after cooking has finished until the circuitry has cooled to a predetermined temperature.
In that case the the checking, fault location and rectification is probably completely beyond even most service engineers - who typically would simply replace circuit boards until the fault is cured...

Bosch oven cooling fan is continuously on at the same speed and is on always no matter what the temperature is. Upper heating element does not turn red hot in broil mode.


The oven has internal fan at back of oven encircling the element that should get reshot when stat turned up high. Also there is cooling fan under lid to keep the wiring area cool.This should stay on for around ten - fifteen minutes after cooking finished. David "The Famous Forry"

The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.


Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

My microwave used to continue making sounds even when item was taken out and cooking time completed. I thought this was part of the mictowave cooling down (sim to fan oven). However, this noise has now...


All microwaves do have a "transmitter" tube called a magnetron. It has to put electrical power into microwaves. To do so it gets warm or even hot. As soon as the transmitter is to hot, it must be cooled down. Most of the time it can be cooled without a fan. But as long as the thermostat indicates it is to hot, the system will cool. Even when you switched the system off. Don't unplug the microwave when it is still hot. It could damage the magnetron.

Mine is a similar problem - light and fan BOTH stay on when the cooking/heating finishes! The door remains closed and the food/beverage cooks. However, when it's finished the light remains on and the


There are a number of interlock switches that the oven door activates when closed, sometimes one becomes defective causing the main fuse to blow in the microwave or continue to run when time is up.

Oven appears to remain on after the baking process is finished. It is a brand new Frigidaire double oven and we have just used it for the first time.


What is staying on? If you are hearing a fan staying on, don't worry about it. Some ovens have a cooling fan that continues to run until the oven cools down below a certain temperature.

I have a Competence B1180, it cuts out after irregular periods of time, although sometimes it may even complete a cooking cycle, if turned off for 10-15min it will re-start, but invariably cuts out again...


Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turnig then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
