Problem with Bosch Fan Assisted Oven


Postby PEGB1962 » Sat Dec 13, 2008 10:52 am

Help Please
I have a Bosch fan assisted electric oven (Model HBN4305.0B)
which has suddenly stopped working. No fan, grill, oven....nothing.
Any ideas on where to start looking to identifying the problem would be gratefully welcome.
Thanks

PEGB1962,
Your main consumer unit/fuseboard should be the first thing to check. If this is OK has the isolating switch to the oven been turned off.

The oven is probably plugged in to a 13 amp socket in the back of a nearby cupboard. Have you checked the plug's fuse?

Apologies I should have said.

There is power to the oven, the clock's lit

Thanks again

Bosch have advised that it could be either the element, stat or function switch.
Could anyone please tell me where these are located within the appliance and how I might test them

Thanks

No one here will be able to answer you question exactly because there are so many different appliances about and even repair people won't know until the back is off.

Firstly, I would cross off the element as the cause because the fan isn't running and both elements would not be faulty together. I would also discount the thermostat for the same reason. This leaves the function switch on the front panel (the knob you use to turn the oven on).

Before you dismantle that, I would remove the cover where the power enters the oven. The cover is usually fixed with two screws and behind it is the connector block. I would examine this for any electrical damage.

Ensure the supply is disconnected before removing the cover.
