main oven doesn't heat up on true fan setting, but fan is working.

main oven doesn't heat up on true fan setting, but fan is working. oven heats up on conventional cooking setting. AEG D41116M purchased from ***** ***** in june 2010

If the oven isnt heating up on true fan setting but the fan is still running then the fan element itself will be the fault.

Remove the shelfs inside the oven and remove the back panel in there.
There you will see the heater around the fan. Its held on by 2 screws. This is the part you need to replace.

You can replace the part from inside the oven so you dont need to remove the oven to fix this. Its all done from inside the oven.

If you want the part number for the heater element its 3871425124

So replace the heater in the oven and this will sort the fault out and get the oven working again.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

Thank you Daniel. I have ordered the part from Amazon and hope that my oven will be up and running again in a few days. You have saved me from buying a complete new oven! Thank goodness it happened today and not on Christmas Day!
