Oven cuts out after ten minutes and comes back after cooling down.
AEG B2100-4 built-in oven. Oven warms up and holds stable temperature but then trips out after 10 or fifteen minutes. The element, light and fan all shut down. If you allow the oven to cool down the poweer returns after about twenty minutes. It behaves like this all the time.
Hi there, we have had our oven for two and a half years now and it is doing just what you have described. I have checked other sites and it seems that there are so so many people with the same problem with the AEG built in over. Not good from such a big manufacturer!!!!John Porter, Scotland

The oven cooldown fan will sometimes run for 10 to 15 minutes after turning the oven off. This enables the outer shell of the oven to cool down. Most ovens also have an inbuilt thermal overload in the outer shell. If the temperature in the outer shell gets too hot it will open circuit the oven power until it cools down a bit.
I would suspect that the problem is caused by the external cooling fan located under the outside cooker cabinet housing, which continues to operate as the oven is cooling down if it is built in, you will have to remove it from the oven housing to access the fan
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.
Could be a sticking thermostat, or a safety stat operating, this cuts off the supply to the oven if it gets too hot for any reason, then when it cools down a bit the oven comes back on,
If it is built in, make sure it has plenty of ventilation, and check the vents to see if clear..
The safety stat is usually located at the top of the oven under the top cover.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate this solution.
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 turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
We have the same problem with our oven, AEG B2190-1.It started on on Christmas day[worst day of year]gets up to temperature after 10-15 minutes cuts out everything switches off until the oven has cooled down, The oven is only 18 months old. We have been told that it is a thermostat problem.
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
