I have a Hotpoint Ultiima HUD61 cooker. Today the fuse box

This answer was rated:

Hi. I have a Hotpoint Ultiima HUD61 cooker. Today the fuse box tripped. Put back on again but and all seems to be working again.... BUT the fan from the fan oven appears to be on as you can feel cold air rising up from the outside of the top oven. What is causing this? What do I need to do?
JA: How old is your Hotpoint oven?
Customer: btw my name is Chris. about 6 years old
JA: How long has this been going on with your Hotpoint oven? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I only discovered today when the electricity fuse tripped.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not really. I have tested all the gas hobs and now that the electricity is on they ignite. Both top and bottom ovens turn on. The only thing I can think of to cause the electricity to trip is that the fan from the bottom oven remains on?

Chris, So the fan oven element is not working and you have not seen any error codes ?

It seems to have sorted itself out! The fan element is now working and switches off when you turn the oven off!

:) OK Glad it is sorted.

If the problem appears again let me know and I will assist you.

As it tripped it can be the fan oven element that is faulty, you may test it if trips again.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you Kevin for your help. Yes - if it trips again definitely suspect the fan oven element. Very odd as I don't use the main oven that often!

You are very welcome.

If it tripped again the fan oven element will need replacement.

However, you may be able to use grill without any issues.
