The fan oven that has stopped heating up is one of the most common problems that oven repair & cooker repair engineers are called to. The problem in most cases is simply a faulty fan oven element. To call out the manufacture (Candy, Hoover, Gasfire, kelvinator and Rosieres) to replace an oven element is going to cost you in the region of £75 – £125.

Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating

If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty.

When you turn the oven on the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element consult manual.

Note that in some cases the fan oven element fails and it will trip the consumer unit’s rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board). If so then it needs to be re-set, but if every time you turn the fan oven on it keeps tripping then this could be a faulty element that has gone to earth.

The following symptoms should be apparent when testing your Candy, Hoover, Gasfire, kelvinator and Rosieres oven or cooker:

  • Make sure your timer is not on auto.
  • Check to see if Fan oven is not heating up,
  • Check to see if fan in the oven is working fine,
  • Check to see if thermostat light is on.
  • On removal of the Fan Oven Element (see below) there may be visual signs of burning, blowing, or splitting but not in all cases. Is no sign of damage you will have to test with a meter.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for this excellent demonstration on how to fix the heating element.

    Unfortunately in my case I’ve not been able fix our oven. After following your guide when I came to unclipping the element terminals one of them appears to have burnt out and melted where it connects to the element.

    Do you know if this issue can be fixed (I suspect rewiring)? If it can, do you approx costs that would be involved? I can send a picture if it helps.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The oven gets warm but not hot enough. Does this mean it is the thermostat that needs replacing and is this possible?

    Hi- thanks for great video really helpful. Whilst I was replacing the oven i broke off the two fine wires to what I think is the fan motor. I have ‘tied’ one back together, and the oven and fan works, but I am concerned it isn’t safe? Can you reconnect the fine copper wires with a bit of electrical tape or do I need to replace the whole part?
