I will try and help with this problem Whirlpool AKP262/IX oven

After looking at the exploded diagram of this cooker it uses a unique fan motor assembly it is possible to use a universal but it's very complicated to fit it as you will have to make the mounting plate.  I suggest you use the genuine part is 481236118492 as it is easy for you to fit, there are videos below to assist you. And a full exploded diagram of your cooker with all the parts that fit this appliance


For your future reference I’ve included some Common faults with these Whirlpool AKP 262/1X single oven cookers to assist you in the future or anyone else reading this.

  • The oven will not turn on
    The first thing you need to check is that the oven timer is not on auto if it is turn it on to manual.
  • No Heat in Oven
    If the fan is running and the thermostat light comes on but you get no heat (or just the thermostat light on in non-fan ovens and cookers) then the probability is that the fan element or oven elements have failed.
  • Electricity trips (Rcd) when I turn the oven on or grill
    This is normally an element that has gone to earth, This is a well-known fault with electric ovens, the insulation breaks down in the elements and trips the RCD , best way is to stick a meter on each element and check that they have not got earth leaks on them. But this can also be a wiring fault.
  • The grill element doesn't work
    This would usually indicate that the grill element is faulty. Check these: Grill element, Oven changeover switch, Overheat thermostat, Main oven thermostat, if used to regulate the grill temperature.
  • The oven fan is not working or spinning correctly (slow) or is noisy
    The fan motor may need to be replaced see video on this also the cooling fan motor can cause same problems.
  • The oven overheats and burns everything
    Normally this is a simple thermostat failure which would manifest itself as this symptom.
  • The oven or cooker cuts out after it's been on for a while
    This is an overheating problem which can be caused by the fan motor or main oven thermostat or a faulty safety thermostat that will be causing the problem. It can also be caused by a failure of the cooling fan, where fitted, but usually these go noisy before failing, Safety thermostats are used to prevent the oven or cooker overheating and will shut the oven down.

    Normally I just turn the temp dial to desired temp then the function dial to fan oven and press ok and the oven starts.
