B3101 AEG oven cuts out after approx. 15 minutes - why?
Our AEG B3101 oven is about a year old. Recently when using the oven or the grill, it seems to cut out after about 15-20 minutes of use and the boith heater and fan stop. The LED display keeps going fine. If you turn it off and leave it for ten minutes you can then turn the oven or grill back on and it works fine for another 20 minutes.
I can't see any thermal cut out in the instructions in case or problems so something must be going wrong - any ideas what and where I cna locate it/test it?

This is probably the thermal cut-out causing the problem. not sure where it is located but possibly on the roof of the oven or in the rear casing near the fan. however, the cause may be lack of ventilation to the unit as a whole

Your cooling fan may not be working. either the fan is faulty or its controling device is not switching it on it also allows the fan to run on after the oven has been turned off. its located in the wiring loom behind the switches. part 899661926761-1 costs £26
It is a safety thermostat that is cutting the oven off, due to overheating.
It could be that the external cooling fan is not working, or the cut out itself is faulty.
Check to see if you can hear the fan working.
This is usually located on the top of the oven , at the rear of the oven, on the top .
Hope this helps.
There is a cooling fan in the cabinet of the oven which is not working either the fan is faulty or the controling cut in stat is, The fan should run when the grill is selected if does not it is more likely to be the fan/motor at fault.
Hi I am Vortash This sound like the thermostat cut out switch and if it is glowing hot then you have a serious DANGEROUS fault
it means that it is not disconnecting as it should and has shorted ot .. please get it changed immdeatly as it may short to the oven body causing it to become live .. now that should mean that the house fuse should blow .. but on the slight chance it don't you would be electrocuted if you touched the oven please call a domestic service engineer now Regards Vortash
Ther are a couple of possibilities that could be causing your problem.
A thing called the safety stat could be cutting the oven out, it is designed to cut off the oven in the case of overheating This is what brings on the cooling fan. Sometimes they cut out prematurly for example you may not have enough vetilation, check for restricted or blocked vents.
The stat itself could be faulty again causing the oven to cut out,and then as it cools down it resets itself and so on and so on.
The thing to do after you hve checked evrything else is toichange the stat.
It is usually located on the top of the outer oven compartment, it is about 1" or so long with a feed in and out of it
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and merry xmas.
