Hoping someone winth knowledge of electric ovens may be able to help.
We have just moved into a house, where there is a freestanding 'Belling 865' dual fuel cooker (gas hobs, electric fan oven).
There is a selector dial so you can choose whether you want oven/fan oven/grill etc and a temperature dial.
When fan oven is selected it takes ages to heat up (waiting for yellow thermostat light to go out) - prob more than 45 mins if it ever heasts up fully, then when the door is opened it loses nearly all the heat.
When the normal oven (without fan) is used, it heats up as expected and retains the heat better.
The instuctions say it is using the same elements for these functions (top and bottom heating elements), so i am a little confused.
We also have a receipt left with the oven stating a new element was fitted in March, due to 'no heat'.
Any ideas as to what is happening?
We may get a new oven soon anyway so dont really want to spend much/anything on it!
