Hi, Delonghi oven is making a fan noise. Looks like it is coming from the top drum fan. Is there a lubrication issue? cheers

The fan behind the rear panel in the oven? (noticable when you turn the oven on) or the other fan on top of the cabinet that you cannot see and remains running some time even after switching off the oven?
Not the radial fan inside the oven. It's the drum fan on the top of the cabinet that you can see when you pull the control panel off. That's where the noise seems to be coming from although it spins freely and appears to be clean and free of debris. The noise has gone now after leaving the oven on so I am thinking it is not really an issue at all. I am wondering if there is a lubrication issue I can address.
The fan runs on an electric motor. You need to check the opposite end to the motor and see if it is a bearing, or just a bush.if it is a bearing, replace it,If it is a bush, you can then lubricate it*the fan motor itself could be on its way also*The oven may need to be pulled out for this, depending on your access etc..
