Hi

Ok im afraid this isnt making sense as a fault.

As if the switch and thermostat has been replaced and the fan runs and the other heat setting work then the fan oven should work unless its faulty. As the heater only gets its power from the selector switch. So as thats new it rules the switch out.
As the other heat settings work then we can rule the thermostat and a thermal cut out as well.

This is all pointing towards a faulty heater element. Are you able to get access to a multi meter to test it? As this will show you if its faulty stright away as its all sounding like the heater element is the issue here if all the rest work and the switch and thermostat has been replaced as there isnt anything else it can be im afraid.

cant understand why heater element works on other settings but not with the fan going

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
The other setting is convection which uses different heaters. That setting uses the outer part of the top element and a base element under the cavity of the oven. Were as the fan setting uses a different element which is aroun the fan itself.

If you remove the back panel inside the oven there you will see the other element around the fan there.

Thats why the other setting work as they use a different element then the fan assist setting.
