If you have a convection oven, you'll likely know that the fan is a big component of this type of cooker. This is why today we will be looking at what to do if your convection oven fan is not working.
Convection ovens have a fan and exhaust system which allows the hot air to be distributed around the food evenly and then back out through the vent system. This allows the food to cook quickly and evenly in a way regular ovens do not provide. They are especially good for baking!
If you've found your convection oven fan is no longer working, you may be wondering what you can do. You don't want to replace your oven (as this can be costly) so a replacement convection oven fan should be your next step. Guaranteed to be a cheaper fix than buying a new oven.
If you want to double check it is your convection oven fan that's not working, turn on your oven and wait for a little while. The convection oven fan will not start up right away and will only start whirling once the oven has reached the desired temperature. If the fan does not start whirling once the oven has heated up, it is likely your convection oven fan is broken.
So, what can you do if your convection oven fan is broken?
Luckily, each part of your cooker can be replaced, including the oven fan. Here at CookerSpareParts, we have a wide range of replacement convection oven fans which should fit any model.

Are you having trouble lighting your oven? If your gas oven is failing to light, this could be due to a number of different problems. Appliances in the home are quite often subject to wear and tear and this will require a little troubleshooting to find the cause of the issue.
Reasons Why Your Oven Is Not Lighting
In order to find out why your oven is not lighting, take a look at our step-by-step guide.
- First, check the gas supply lines and the igniter. If your top igniter is working, but the oven cavity itself will not light, it is the oven igniter that may have a problem. This is not a problem with the gas.
- Secondly, check the gas tank. If the gas is low, this could be why your oven is not igniting.
- Check your cooker values are switched to the 'on' position.
- Locate your oven igniter and check it is clean. If the igniter is covered in dirt, this could be why your oven will not light. Gently clean the igniter and remove any debris.
- Find the pilot hole which emits the gas. Using a needle, insert it into the hole and gently clean away any buildup or debris that could be restricting the gas.
- Next, check if the igniter sparks. To do this, turn the gas off and press the ignition button. If you cannot hear the clicking noise or see any sparks, this is why your oven is not lighting and means the igniter needs replacing.
- Finally, inspect the wiring and look for any discrepancies. If any of the wires are loose, ensure you turn the oven off and then process to tighten the connection with a screwdriver.

Your oven thermostat is the part of the cooker which regulates the temperature. If you have a faulty oven thermostat, you will know about it. As the heat is no longer regulated, this could cause burnt or even undercooked food - and nobody wants that!
How To Tell if Your Oven Thermostat is Faulty
If you find your oven is not cooking your food properly, the fault is either with the oven heating element or the oven thermostat. The only way you can determine if it is your oven thermostat is by testing it.
You can test your faulty oven thermostat using the following steps.
- Unplug the oven from the wall.
- Depending on your oven type, the thermostat could be located behind the back panel, beneath the backsplash, under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. The thermostat is a thin piece of metal usually attached to a coil of wire.
- If you then remove the thermostat from the oven, you can use a multimeter to test it.
- Ensure the multimeter is calibrated and then turn the dial to the lowest ohm rating.
- Place the multimeter on the thermostat. If the thermostat has a reading of zero or as close to zero as possible, it is working fine. However, if it has no reading at all, your oven thermostat is faulty and will need replacing.
