I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to an oven which fails to heat up. I have found In most cases, if your fan oven is not heating up the problem will turn out to be that your fan oven element is faulty. However, instead of replacing the entire cooker, you can easily replace the oven element and save yourself a bit of money. In this scenario, you will need a professional assistant who can take care of the replacement for you and in such case, if you are unsure who to contact, I have attached additional instructions below.

  1. Go to
  2. In the search field, enter Appliance Engineer. 
  3. In the location search, enter your postal code for local results. 
  4. Lastly, call the services and book one that fits your budget.

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!
