Greetings and Welcome to JustAnswer.

I am Andrew your Support Technician with over 30 years of experience, it can be very frustrating when electronic devices go wrong but from my experience misconfiguration are usually the problem and they can be quickly resolved with the right advice and assistance. Please allow me a few moments to investigate, I will respond at the earliest either requesting more information or providing further information.

Expert:  Andrew Balfour replied 10 days ago.

I have investigated the information you have provided and based on that information I have found If the oven fan is not spinning it could be down to a faulty motor. Other signs include excessive noise coming from the fan, and ineffective circulation of heat. A noisy fan is often caused by dry or worn out bearings in the motor which can usually be resolved by replacing the fan motor.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
