Neff u1271 oven not heating

The fan oven is not heating. Turn the oven on the light by the knob comes on. The fan and the light in the oven come on but heat. Left for 20mins and still blowing cold air. Could this have something to do with the timer? It appears there is a different sign on the display. Or is it the element/thermostat! Many thanks Will

    I have replaced the element in my oven as the last one blew. The new element takes a long time to reach the desired temperature, about 30-40 mins to get to 200.

Found the fault. It's the heat ring in the main oven. MAKE SURE THE MAINS POWER IS OFF PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS WORK!!!!! 1.Simply remove the four screws that fix the fan surround in the main oven. 2.Remove the rear cover fixing screws and remove the rear cover. ( the cable passes through this so just rest it to one side ). 3.Remove the two push on spade connectors from the heater element ( positioned just down and to the right of the fan assembly ). 4.Remove the four heater element fixing screws from inside the main oven. 5. The tricky bit. . . There is one more fixing at the top of the fan in the main oven. I could not get the fan off its spindle, but the next step sorted this out. 6.Remove the three fan fixings from the rear of the oven. This allows the fan to wobble/move enough in the oven to remove the final heater fixing screw at the top of the fan. 7.Pull the heater element into the main oven. No doubt it has a very grey and flakey appearance to part of it! 8.Buy a new one and replace it in reverse order, remembering to replace all fixing screws as you go. 9. If you forget which way the cables on the heater element go, the one with the red marks on it goes to the left as you look at the back of the oven from the outside. ( nearest the fan assembly ) I know this all looks a bit long winded, but it really is quite simple if you follow the notes above! Hope this helps someone. Might just save a ridiculous call out charge from the professionals!!!! Best of luck, Keith.

Solution above was great and inspired me to buy the heater ring on line and follow the instructions.
I had no troble just remove the back cover to the fan, un screw the heater ring and connect the wires.

Cooke and Lewis multifunction single oven

if your referring to the light with the squiggle line above it ? this is the power on light (the squiggle line is the universal sign of power ) if your referring to the lights on the functions knob (left knob) there are tiny lights that come on behind these little pictures on there , the pictorgraph on the left side is for the broiler I do believe , this also gives one an option to use the convection fan to spread the heat about inside and evac the food cooking oils from inside the case , a light beep is a confirmation of a feature being issued to be used three long beeps happen when desired oven temp is reached , the knob only activates the feature after knob is set for more than 5 seconds there , this is a little fiddly bit as most folks don't think its workin and keep twisting it about never allowing the timer to complete its cycle

Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven

I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
  • 0 = Off
  • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
  • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
  • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
  • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.

Hi, My Bottom oven will not heat up the top oven is working fine. The light comes on when I turn the knob but I'm getting no heat please can you help? Regards, Sharon

If it is fan assisted and the fan is working then you need to replace the oven element located at the rear of the oven compartment.

Temp display shows 444

If everything on your B1691N0GB oven seems to be working, i.e. all the lights are on and fan comes on in fan oven setting, but there is no heat from fan oven, conventional oven or grill, try turning your oven off at the mains, then turn on again. If the temperature display then shows 444, your oven is locked. To unlock, make sure the central control knob is in the "out" position, then press the fan oven and light buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds or so, until 333 appears on the display. Your oven is now unlocked.
