Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Have you removed the appliance from its housing an checked the operation of the appliances cooling fan
Yes I mean oven.. but the word appliance is the word I choose to use.
Pull out the appliance from its cavity onto a secure standing and turn it on.. Check to see if after it has heated, the cooling fan at the rear of the oven operates.
Also, let me know what the model of the hob is.. This will be on the underneath of the hob and available to see when the oven is removed.
The fan you are referring to is the forced air fan... That is used to distribute the heat as evenly as possible throughout the oven interior..
The fan that I am referring to is at the rear of the appliance.. That is used for cooling the cavity, dispersing the heat from the cavity.
You do need to check the fan at the rear... If this is not working correctly then the heat will build-up to a point that the heat affects other appliances and units.
Yes it does cost more to contact me.. I will send you the request in-case you wish to do this.
Understood... I will await your response
Please rate the assistance I have given you so far.. I will then make my self available to whoever you find to assist you with this.
Image is in the link below.. you will find the fan under the top cover of the oven as pictured.
The the fault is not with the oven and will be with one of the following:
[POWER OFF] Take off the cover and physically check the cable tightness and condition where it is screwed to the terminal in the connection box.
A loose Live or Neutral cable will cause the fault that you are describing.
There are other continuity and drawage tests that you can do if you have the equipment
This can cause irregularities, but worst of all this is extremely unsafe. The earthing of a high power appliance is an absolute must.. Aside from the fact that it can throw-up unusual faults if it is not corrected, IT IS DANGEROUS. If a fault occurs within the insulation of a component inside the appliance and there is no earth attached to that appliance, the user can be fatally injured.
Yes, but if you had it installed professionally then there will already be one in place, or should I say there should be one in place. It is all part of the installation .. (Sufficient ventilation space surrounding the oven and sufficient protection from the oven.)

They are not bought as a stock item but are usually made by the fitter.
The insulation plate is usually either a sheet of wood (plyboard), or a sheet of metal. However, if metal is to be used then ensure it is thick enough to soak heat whilst staying cool.
The insulation sheet is purely a divider between the two appliances. Any joiner or handyman can do this task if following the installation routine of the manufacturer.
