Bosch built in oven model no HBN13M260B, HBB-AP63-7, FD8709,
These are all the numbers I have

Hi and thank you for that information.

It could be the main board that has the problem but in almost every instance when this happens the thermal element is to blame, it is a cheap easy to replace part and I will help you all the way if you are handy and have some basic hand tools;-)

It turns the fan on when it thinks the temp is still high, and shuts it off when it has cooled.

It has only two wire clips to press on and pull off so no soldering is required ;-)

The best place to get that part (the fan thermal cut off) is:

I would call them to order this part as they will ship that to you the same day you call.

Please call espares: 0844 9777 888

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Thank you for your help Michael, been in touch with e-spares they are describing the (thermal cut off) as the (thermal cut out) is this the same? Also where will I find this located inside the oven? many thanks for your on-going help. regards John ***********

Hi John, yes thats the same part just a different terminology;-)

I will be here when you have the part lets hope it solves the issue and its not the main board which of course is a more expensive;-)

Thank you and have a great day.

Hi MichaelJust received the right part for my oven, they sent the wrong part initially, since ordering the part the problem with the oven seems to have resolved itself, so I will now wait to see when it happens again. In the meantime it would be helpful to have the approximate location of the part within the oven identified, is that possible?Yours Sincerely John

Hi John, it may have simply had a power glitch on the main control board but I doubt that.

More likley a loose connection at the board. But hold onto that part for, you may need it one day ;-)

This part is is above the ovens main cavity and accessible by removing the top.

But I would wait and see if it act up again because these boards will do this from time to time.

Have a nice weekend John.
