QI am unable to release the nut that holds the fan in place.2 Answers
I am aware that it is opposite thread but the oven has been in use for 10 years or so, is there a particular method for releasing this nut. Not sure about using WD40 in the oven as the smell would linger.

It doesn't matter ,as if your changing the whole fan assembly you don't need any of the old fan,,) and wd40 is fine to use ,but clean off all parts left in oven ,

I've just removed mine from my cooker thats been used every day for more than ten years.
You are right to unscrew the nut by turning clock wise(this is opposite to normal).Hold the fan blade with one hand - maybe with a glove on and using a 10mm spanner undo the nut, it does not matter if you have to use excessive force or even shear the fan motor spindle as obviously you are removing the fan blade to replace the fan motor i presume.
QWhen i turn the oven on there is a delay thats getting longer before the fan starts. Does this mean it needs replacing?2 Answers

A Slower and slower start for the fan was symptomatic of the need for a new one. But beware - the element relies on the airflow to cool it Left un cooled it will eventually blow , as mine did , resulting in another 20 quid down the pan. Change the fan now and you might be lucky.

Sounds like you mighht have a loose conection or it on its way out. I would just wait till it packs in or open up back and check all spade conectors if it is not to much hastle for yourself
