Upper cooling fan constantly running

Hi there the fan in the top of the oven above the elements runs all the time,the only way of stopping it is to switch of mains power at the wall. is there a reset procedure or an easily replaceable part(tstat or switch of somekind) many thanks

    When the oven has been on for a while on 180 or above when I turn it off the fan kicks in for a few mins to help cooling but then all power is cut to the whole oven. It comes back on automatically about 1.5 hours later when it has cooled down. Occasionally I get an F01 error and have to switch off at wall and then back on again

Hi, I've tried to programme my cooker on auto following the instructions, everything works apart from when the time comes to turn the oven off automatically it doesn't work. The buzzer goes...

Are you sure it's the oven still running and not the built in cooling fan...next time look at the fan at the rear of the oven if it's not turning it's off and you will be hearing the cooling fan

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.

Regards

The oven keeps turning its self off

It could be the thermal cutouts operating. First things first, is the cooling fan running and does it turn off about 10 mins after the ovens/grill are turned off? If it isn't running then the unit is overheating and the thermal cutouts will operate. If it is running normally, then the cutout could be switching in early due to them becoming old and ineffective. There are two cutouts in the oven. One controls the main oven and the other controls the top oven. However, the grill operates without the clock being set, i.e. it is independent of the clock. So, if both the top oven and grill stop working together, according to the wiring diagrams in the handbook, the only thing it could be is the thermal cutout for the top unit.
F.Y.I. The top oven switch controls both the grill and the oven elements. In other words, in its OFF position, the Grill works and the Oven doesn't and in its ON setting the Oven works and the Grill doesn't. However, I can't see this failing as you specify, but worth checking if you take the oven to bits. The Grill will only work if the oven door is down.
If you need to replace the cooling fan, you will have to take the whole unit out of the kitchen cupboard to gain access to the top and rear oven panels, which have to be removed to gain access to the cooling fan and wiring. If you do replace it, ensure all the vents for air circulation are free from dirt and grease before you put it all back.
Try espares for STOVES spares. If the item is not listed you can ask them for a quote.
Be aware that the cooling fan is controlled by a timer circuit board and an in-line resistor on the fan terminal block. Either or both of these two and or the fan could have failed if the fan is not running! Any competent electrician should be able to work out what has failed.
All the diagrams are in the Handbook. If you need a copy, supply an email address and I will send you a pdf copy.
If you do ask for a quote, I suggest you ask for prices for all the parts mentioned above, so once you have checked what has failed, you will have enough info on pricing and availability as to whether to proceed or not.

The oven and grill when in use switch themselves off after a while. They will switch themselves back on after a while.

F2E1 on stove after cooking on temps of 425-450 for 20mins stove shuts off and can not restart even if power is turned off and then started. must wait for stove to cool down and then press cancel and stove...

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.

My oven is constantly blowing out air at the front? Why

Your oven has a fan to draw in cool air at the bottom of the front panel, pass it around the case, and then blow it out at a position towards the top of the oven. This is a completely different fan that is at the back of the oven itself.

The cooling fan is necessary as the materials in modern ovens are kept light and thin as possible to save weight and manufacturing costs, however the flipside of this is that if not cooled by the cooling fan, they would be damaged by the heat inside the oven itself.

The cooling fan will continue to run for some time after the oven is switched off, because it will wait until the oven has fully cooled down before stopping the cooling fan.

Fischer paykel double drawer motor runs constantly and will start

Is it the actual oven fan located on the back wall of the cavity behind the fan shroud or is it the cooling fan which is at the top of the cavity and blows air across the top of the oven? The cooling fan can't actually be seen.
