Fan ovens are great for cooking your meals more efficiently, allowing your appliance to heat up quickly and cook your food thoroughly. When one of the parts in your oven becomes faulty, this can seriously harm its performance, which means that you should replace the item as soon as possible to restore your appliance to its former glory.
The fan motor is a common part which causes issues for fan ovens when a fault is present, which is why we often receive enquiries from customers who are looking for an oven fan motor replacement. One of the most popular replacements in our selection of spares is this motor for the Hotpoint SY36X, thanks to the fact that it is compatible with a range of cookers from Hotpoint, Ariston and Creda.
How do I know if I need an oven fan motor replacement?
Signs that your fan motor needs replacing include your oven being noisy and working more slowly than usual, as well as the oven light/elements appearing to work efficiently but failing to heat.
How can I find the right oven fan motor replacement for the cooker I own?
If you're not sure which of our spares will suit your cooker model, simply use our handy search feature to locate parts that are compatible with your appliance. Select using the manufacturer and model number, then refine your search by selecting the part you need.

If you have a Hotpoint electric cooker and you're experiencing problems with the heating, the cause of your problem may be the thermostat. Thermostats are responsible for regulating the temperature in your cooker; when your oven element has reached the temperature you've specified, the thermostat will step in and tell the element to stop increasing the heat but if you're facing problems with your thermostat your element will just continue warming up.
This will cause your oven to overheat, burning your meals and possibly damaging the element itself. For this reason, it's vitally important to replace your thermostat as soon as possible if it's beginning to become faulty.

Do you know where your cooker model number is? Before you start browsing our website for cooker spares, we strongly recommend that you make a note of your appliance's model number.
We stock a huge number of parts here at Cooker Spare Parts, and since many of them look very similar to one another, it's a good idea to know exactly what kind of cooker you're trying to fix!
Bottom line: entering your manufacturer name and model number (e.g. Hotpoint DHS53X) when searching the Cooker Spare Parts website will ensure that we only show you parts that are compatible with your cooker.
Unfortunately, cooker manufacturers don't always make their model numbers easy to spot.
To find out your model number, you'll need to find the cooker's data badge. The model number will be included among the infromation on the badge.
A cooker's data badge which contains your cooker model number usually looks something like this:
In this example, the model number is SDF6 7HF.
So where's my cooker model number?
This is the tricky part because your cooker model number's location depends on what type of cooker you own. On most appliances, the data badge can be found in one of the following places:
- Behind the frame of the oven door
- On the side of the oven door
- Behind the flap at the base of the appliance
- On the side of the appliance
- On the back of the appliance
In some cases, you may have to move your cooker away from the wall in order to inspect its cooker model number. However, before you do that, we recommend visiting our Help Centre page and selecting your manufacturer from our drop-down list - this will give you more specific information about how to locate your appliance's model number.
If you're still struggling, give us a call on 02920 452 510 and our cooker experts will be happy to help you out.
I've found my model number! What next?
Now that you've got your cooker model number to hand, simply head to the Cooker Spare Parts homepage and enter your manufacturer name (e.g. Belling) and model number (e.g. DB90) in the boxes provided. We'll then show you a list of compatible parts, and you can either select the item you need from that list or narrow it down further by specifying a part type and/or searching for a specific keyword phrase.

If you have an Indesit oven and you're experiencing problems with overheating, it may well be that you need to replace your appliance's thermostat. Thermostats are responsible for regulating oven temperature; when your oven element reaches the temperature you've specified, the thermostat is supposed to cut in and tell the element to stop getting hotter, but if your thermostat is broken then the element will continue to warm up.
This will cause your oven to overheat, burning your meals and quite possibly damaging the element itself. For this reason, it's important to replace a broken thermostat as soon as possible.
Fortunately, that's exactly the sort of thing we can help with here at Cooker Spare Parts!

Electric ovens are generally easy to repair because there is not much that goes wrong with them. Repairing an electric oven often just means replacing a part or two, so in the first instance, all you have to do is diagnose which part needs replacing.
That said, if you don't know much about the inner workings of a cooker, it can be a little baffling when your oven breaks. To help you out, we have compiled a list of common faults to help you diagnose the issue with your electric oven and buy the right replacement part. After diagnosing the problem, you'll hopefully be able to understand why your electric oven isn't working and get it back up and running again.
The most common problem
If your electric oven isn't working, the most likely explanation is that the heating element is faulty. The element is the part of the oven that actually heats up, and it's relatively easy to replace.

There's no power reaching my oven.
No power to your cooker can be caused by a number of things:
- Check that the oven is switched on
- If plugged into a socket check that the fuse is still working
- If connected to the mains, check your main fuse board in the house, your electricity may have been interrupted during the day.
- If your oven has a digital timer, it might be stuck in automatic.
- If you have checked all of these possibilities call out an engineer.

- If you have checked the element but can see no damage it, check your thermal fuse or thermal switch. If these have gone you can buy a replacement here.
My oven keeps cutting out.
Your oven cutting out could be caused by two issues:
- The cooling fan might be faulty. If you find you need a replacement part, click here.
- The thermal switch is not working properly.
If your oven overheats and then cuts out, this is likely to be a problem with your thermostat.
My oven door won't close properly.
Having difficulty closing your oven door? Check the hinges and seal:
- Check the hinges have not broken and are still intact
- Check that the hinges have not become misaligned
- Door seals diminish with age and can become loose causing your oven door not to close properly. If this is the case your seal will need replacing, you can view our range of replacement seals here.
