Hiya,

Have you taken the fan off?

Have you taken the 3 screws behind the fan out?

 

Thanks

Yes the fan motor and cowl are free from the body of the oven and appears to be held only by the fan blade inside the oven.

Thanks

Hiya,

It's the fan blade I'm asking about.

You need to take that off.

 

The nut in the middle is a left hand thread.

 

Once you have the fan (blade) off, you'll have access to the screws. (if you haven't already got them out.

 

Once the fan and screws are removed, it will come out the rear.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks

That's the area I'm having difficulty. How do I stop the fan from turning while I remove the nut ?

Thanks

Hiya,

You hold the fan with your hand.

Then you turn the nut clockwise to slacken it.

 

Thanks

Hiya,

No problem.

 

I hate to harp on, but please, make sure you are turning the nut clockwise (it's left hand thread).

 

Thanks
