I have a New world Double oven - NW90DFDO and the fan oven has stopped working up to temperature the fan and oven light are working but the temperature wont go above 50 is this a thermostat problem and can I change it ?
When you try the oven, the fan runs, does the temperature light on the front stay on too?

OK, thanks for that.
In that case, the most likely cause of the fault is the element has failed.

I'm advising on the most common cause of the problem you have.

Isolate the power to the appliance. Disconnect it from the electrical supply

The method of changing will depend on the element fitted at the time of manufacture.

There are 2 types, one is held from the front by screws, the other is held from the rear by nuts.

If the interior light is on the rear panel, take the light glass off first.

Take the rear panel inside the oven out.

This will reveal the element and the fan.

Take the screws holding the element in place out.

Bring the element and the wiring into the oven cavity.

(Be careful not to pull the wires off as you manouver the element into the cavity, if you do, you'll need to take the oven out, rear panel off to be able to retrieve the wires. Don't try the machine if you have lost a wire, retrieve it first).

If the element is not obviously blown, you need to test it with a multimeter to see if it's open circuit.

Swap the wiring on to the new element. (Don't lose the wires into the back or you'll need to take the appliance out and remove the panels to retrieve them).

Fit the element in place and replace the cover.

Turn the power back on and set the clock.
Try the oven again.

If there are no screws holding the element in place, take the cooker out and take the rear cover off.

You can now access the wiring and the nuts holding the element in place.

If the element tests ok, let me know.

Obviously, if you cannot do the work yourself, you'll need to get someone in to do it for you.

Hope this helps
