    It works very well and is quieter than the old fan it replaced. Fitting was ok but was complicated by the three screws inside the oven being caked with food residues. Do not undo any screws on the old motor itself. Getting the panel off the back of my oven model was also fiddly - take a photo or make notes. It needed two people to fit the new fan because it needs holding from the back while screwing in the oven from the front. Worth doing though.
  • Overall a very good experience

    Replacement part received quickly and after watching the espares vid was easy to fit. The only improvement could be an instruction on reconnecting the wiring to the motor as the replacement had the 2 terminals side by side in one location, while the original had the terminals on opposite sides of the motor coil. I guessed which way to connect and the fan turned in the correct direction so I assumed it was OK. The included pack of batteries and pen were a nice touch.

  • Q The motor I have removed has a connector on each side, the replacement has both on the same side. Which colour wire goes where? 2 Answers

      I found the same thing and tried the wires either way and it worked fine in either configuration and the fan always turned in the same direction regardless of the configuration.

      It shouldn't matter which way round the wires go.

      my old one had got some of the insulation lagging wrapped / burned round the spindle - which led to its failure. check the motor turns freely and has nothing jammed etc when you installed it

      Hi, my guess is that the wires are not all connected properly - I'd double check what you've already done and see if you've made any errors. Of course you must remember to unplug your cooker first and let it stand for at least ten minutes so it drains of all residual power!

      The fan should spin up quickly and run after switching off as shown in our video: For more information see our video:

  • Q Fuse tripping after use of fan and then switching off the oven 1 Answer

    Hi ! Our oven (AEG B8871-5) has started to trip the fuse box when switching off the oven - the oven operates ok and it's only when pressing the off switch it trips the switch. After some trial and error have isolated the issue to when using a mode that uses the fan. I don't think it's an element issue since get the problem when using either the top grill element or the main ring element. Also have tried the grill element with and without the fan and without the fan there is no problem. Any idea what's causing this and also what extra event occurs when switching off ? e.g. does the fan speed increase to cool off ? Thanks in advance, Richard

      Hi worthywow, I'm not exactly sure why there's a surge only when turning off the oven. The fan is only one-speed - it doesn't rotate faster when you turn the oven off. Aside from that, it's hard to diagnose without having a look! I'd advise getting someone in the know to come round and investigate.
