ariston cooker hood AH AF35 116455hi my extractor fan comes on works perfect for 5 mins then stops and wont start again for at least 15 mins, then restarts and does the same have checked wiring all seems ok regards
Cooker Hood FaultAEG 502D-d GB cooker hood appears to have no power to the light switch. Do you reckon it\'s the PCB Module? Do you know if there is a PCB installed?
On a quick look it seems there is not a control module in that one and that the individual switches can be changed, they are probably soldered in place though.
If you want more, prices and so on please give Dave a shout on spares@ukwhiteg oods.co.uk and he will be able to track it down for you more in more detail. If you can though, have a look inside the hood and there will be a rating plate sticker with a product code or PNC number and that will help ensure you get the exact correct switch.

The info you have is correct that seal is completely obsolete, no stock to be had anywhere and no alternatives that could be used either.
Faulty ovenI have a logik electric built in fan oven LBMFMX15 the fan stars up but there is no heat and the light does not come on
Sadly Logik is an own label brand that is exclusive to Currys and we have little info on them. But it does sound like a selector switch or power board faulty although which we wouldn\'t be able to tell you in advance, you would really need to investigate and try to work out what the problem is.

Britannia oven over heating.Hi.
Over heating Britannia (bought in 2000) -main- fan assisted oven. Small oven and cooling fan ok. It\'s had two main switches replaced out of warranty.
On start up, on any heat setting the fan starts then stops after a short time and never comes on again.
The round fan element heats up ok and we fitted a new thermostat supplied by Whitegoods but oven continues to over heat.
Water flashes off the outside of the door if splashed, its that hot, and the casing gets to hot to touch.
So...had new thermostat, fan initially works then stops and doesn\'t come on again but continues to over heat.
Any suggestions please.
