Resolution

There is 2 main reasons the cooker fan will continue to run even after you have finished cooking.


1.One of these reasons is completely normal and actually part of our clever technology to ensure proper cooling. 

2.The other reason is likely to be fault or issue that needs rectifying by one of our authorized service engineers.


1. The fan you can hear is actually a cooling fan which is located at the back of the oven. When cooking has finished the cavity is still very hot. The fan will continue to run for a while after the oven has been turned off to assist the cooling process. The fan will stop automatically when the oven has cooled down sufficiently.  Depending on the cooking duration and the temperature chosen , the cooling fan operation time may vary. If the fan remains on after you've finished cooking for more than hour this could be a fault. (See below) 


2. If the fan remains on for an extended period time (longer than an hour) after you have finished cooking there is likely to be a fault with the temperature sensor. If faulty, it may incorrectly signal that the oven is still too hot. This will cause the fan to continue operating even if your oven is cold. If the temperature sensor is not working, you will need to replace it. This will require a visit from one of our authorized service engineers.
