I have a White Westinghouse 100 cm range cooker. The model

Resolved Question:

I have a White Westinghouse 100 cm range cooker. The model number is ***** The fan for the oven does not go off, this happened after I had used the main oven. I am not sure if the cooker is repairable, or if the parts are still available. This has been the case for several weeks so we have to switch off and on at the mains as and when needed.

Hello, my name is George..

The appliance.. Is the appliance a Dual Fuel appliance or is it electric only?

The problem you have is that there is no information relating to the model still available.

Identifying the problem and the part numbers.. The parts will be available somewhere, or replacement parts will be available by matching the numbers from the broken parts.

The work.. Are you able to take the appliance apart, and do you have a multimeter handy?

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Yes it is dual fuel. No I am not able to take the appliance apart. I would need an engineer to do this

They are not able to help as they do not fix White Westinghouse and therefore do not have parts.

Ok Barbara.. let me make a fewcalls.. I know what the problem will be, it is just a case of getting someone near to where you are to do the job for you.

Ok the full model number is *****
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Barbara, can you check to define if this is the oven fan inside the oven that is causing this issue of if it is the cooling caity fan that blows through above the oven.

regards

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for phoning Barbara...

Just to recap; you have a few problems with your cooker..

1. The cooling fan is staying powered.. There are several things that could cause this... Component failure; wiring short, earth fault.

2. The fan in the oven is failing to operate.. This could be jammed, faulty, or not getting power.

The company I asked you to speak to you will come out and look at it for you provided you pay their callout fee.. This fee covers their time and costs in getting to you.. This is payable even if you decide that the cooker doesn't warrant repair.

Having said that, there are many universal parts available that could repair your cooker.. as I said earlier, it is a matter of locating the part numbers on the broken parts to find the replacements.

kind regards
George
