Oven fan The fan to my oven keeps clicking on and off every 2-3 minutes (sometimes even more frequently), all day long. This is when it has not been in use for many hours or even the entire day. The oven is stone cold, yet the fan clicks on, runs for maybe 2 seconds, then clicks off. Twice last week, the display panel showed PF for power failure, and the clock had to be reset. There was no power failure anywhere else in the room or house.

Helt, there was a service flash on this model having to do with a wire in the wiring harness not made to specifications. Now, Im just going by the model number posted. Depending on your serial number your model could be included. What it sounds like is that your fan limit switch is gone wacky. This is located in the rear of the oven and tests would have to be done to determine if that switch is closing for some reason. There were other service flashes on this model concerning the thermal cut out mounted just below the vent causing it to open during cleaning. You might want to call for service and see if your appliance is covered under these service flashes. Catriver..post back.

My oven makes a huge whirring buzzing noise after 20/30 minutes of use. I replaced the cooling fan motor but that has not helped. Surely this is not normal?

It sounds like you're experiencing an issue with your SMEG DS96MFA7 oven where a noise occurs after some time of operation and continues even after the oven is turned off. Since you've already replaced the cooling fan and the noise persists, there are a few possibilities to consider:
  1. Heating Element: The heating element in your oven might be expanding and contracting as it heats up and cools down during operation. This can sometimes create noises, especially if the element has developed some internal damage.
  2. Cooling Fan Motor: While you've replaced the cooling fan, it's possible that the noise is coming from a different part of the fan assembly or from the fan motor itself. The noise might be due to vibrations, a misaligned part, or a problem with the motor bearings.
  3. Exhaust Fan or Circulation Fan: Some ovens have additional fans for exhaust or circulation purposes. If your oven has these fans, they might be causing the noise. Check if there are any additional fans present and inspect them for any issues.
  4. Expansion and Contraction: As the oven heats up during use and then cools down after being turned off, various components inside the oven can expand and contract. This can sometimes result in creaking or popping noises. This could include metal components, panels, or other parts.
  5. Loose or Vibrating Components: Check for any loose or vibrating components within the oven. Even a small loose panel or part can generate a significant amount of noise, especially as it vibrates against other surfaces.
  6. Gas Ignition System: If your oven uses gas, the ignition system could be causing clicking or ticking noises as it ignites and heats up.
  7. Electrical Components: Certain electrical components, such as relays or transformers, could also be causing the noise if they are malfunctioning or vibrating excessively.
Since diagnosing the exact source of the noise can be challenging, especially without being able to inspect the oven in person, I recommend the following steps:
  1. Carefully Inspect: When the noise occurs, try to pinpoint its source by listening closely and observing the oven's components. This might give you a better idea of where the noise is coming from.
  2. Contact Professional Help: If the noise persists and is affecting the functionality of the oven, it's advisable to contact a professional appliance repair technician. They have the expertise and tools to diagnose and fix the issue accurately.

Smeg oven: UK 80 MFX: Intermittent fault with circular fan element.

either a bad connection on the element terminals or faulty element

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.

Oven works well some days but occasionally will quit heating intermittently. Sometimes becoming frequently usually.

Dan, try cleaning or just replace the ovens temperature sensor, normally located on back wall, its like a copper wire with a small slim copper tube on the end.

Hobart convexion oven model CN90 . THE FAN MOTOR CUTS OFF AND ON WHEN IT IS IN USE WHAT CAUSE THIS I THOUGHT IT IS SUPPOSE TO RUN ALL THE TIME

No they usually run 2 minutes one way and 2 minutes in opposite direction to even out the baking.
Unless its erratic then something else is wrong.

Baumatic oven not heating up. Grill and fan fine.

if it is the b180, the answer (having just fixed this) is really simple.

The coily bit is the oven element - it will have gone. A new one from eBay cost me about 6 quid.
[WHEN IT ARRIVES !]

Turn the power off.
Inside the oven use a philips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws (KEEP THEM !)
You will see a coily thing and a fan.


You unscrew 3 more screws (2 on the left and 1 on the right).
(KEEP THESE TOO!)

now ... bit tricky, have the new one inside the oven and take each wire off one at a time and put it on the new element.

Screw it back on but DONT put the last panel back in.

Turn the oven on maximum for about 2 minutes and see it glow red.

Turn the oven off. Make a cup of tea and have a couple of biscuits while admiring how good you are and waiting for the element to cool down!!!

Put the final panel back in place. Whole thing (including a cup of tea) takes about half an hour.

3rd blown element

no connection between lights on fan. problem is that bulbs these days are poor quality (but cheap)
it is common for these circular elements to go. usually last about 2 years. worth checking tho that fan is turning at right speed

Oven fan keeps on clicking

There are two things that you can check. one is your circuit breaker itself and the other is the internal terminal block that the main wires feed into. the terminal block could have loose wires which will cuase an intermittant PF to appear on the oven, disconnect from power before checking. The voltage at the oven will have to be checked with a multimeter to verify the proper levels. Be sure to be extra careful around electrical connections while the oven is connected to power.
