Hiya,
Can you post the E-Nr number of your appliance please?
It should be on a label in the door recess.

Hiya,
If you are looking to repair this yourself, you'll need to have decent diy skills, a multimeter (and the knowledge to use it) and torx screwdrivers to take the panels off of the oven.
.
The oven needs to come out for repair.
.
Isolate the power to it before working on it.
.
Take the top and rear panel off.
Locate the cooling fan and follow the wiring to it back.
You'll find it goes through a cut in thermostat.
.
This thermostat has failed in the closed position and is responsible for keeping the cooling fan running permanently.
.
Obtain and fit a new cut in thermostat (Neff refer to it as a temperature limiter).
.
Normally it will be open circuit.
When the oven heats up it goes closed circuit and brings the fan on.
It then keeps the fan running after the oven has been used until it cools down, when it again goes open circuit.
.
Check it out, see what you find and get back to me.
.
Obviously, if you cannot do the work yourself, you'll need to get someone in to do it for you.
.
Hope this helps
Thanks
