The Thermo fan function is a great energy saver while giving magnificent baking results with the heat sources (heating elements) coming on less frequently to produce a even hot air flow in the oven.

Now the reason for this post is tell you more about the Thermo-fan in the oven and quick a way of spotting when fan is busy failing.

  • One of the many great features of the Thermo-oven is that you can bake on all the shelves and the baking result will be consisted. Once you start noticing different shades of brown on the cookies or the potato-bake is a bit sloppy on one-side, then you know the fan are no longer distributing the hot-air effectively and evenly 
  • The oven is getting hot but no air is blowing inside the oven or
  • The fan is blowing but it sounds like a Boeing is taking-off inside the oven 
  • If the oven-door are closing properly and the oven seal are not broken but the baking results aren't up to pare - then it could only be the fan becoming slower and weaker

Once the temperature start going haywire and the oven is playing up clients also start noticing that their oven doors aren't that hot. Don't worry about this it is just another great feature of the Defy 731 - it has a Air cooled oven door.

The Oven-door has little air-slots in the door that when the hot air starts to rise, it pulls cold air from the bottom though the double oven door glass. This constant flow of  fresh air  movement keep the door cool while keeping the hot-thermo-air inside.

I better stop raving about the Defy 731 stove because you might think I am getting paid for this post but it's just that I love with this simple looking stove with all her hidden features!
