Daniel, I have a Neff integrated oven about 12 years old.

Customer Question

Hi Daniel, I have a Neff integrated oven about 12 years old. For a while now the oven light keeps going off randomly which seems to also turn the oven off. I guess this is a safety feature but it is slowly getting worse. Is there a micro-switch somewhere that can be replaced? I have looked closely at the door and can only think it is part of the hinge mechanism. Any thoughts?

Having looked at the diagrams for your appliance, I have come to the opinion that other than expensive major electrical parts, there are only two parts in your appliance that you can check yourself.

There is a thermal limiter; from the diagrams that it is just inside the rear panel.. This protects the appliance from excess heat in the cavity..
When the light and the oven stop working, turn off the appliance at the wall and as fast as you can, check the continuity through the component..
If there is continuity then the problem you have is an electronic failure elsewhere..
If there is no continuity, then check to see if the cooling fan under the lid is working properly.
