Re: Oven Fan Not Working Correctly
I am assuming this is a convection oven. There are only so many possibilities for this. 1) Bad fan motor 2) bad wiring from the board to the fan motor, 3) bad relay on the board. I recently ran a call on one of these and found a tech had replaced the oven temp. sensor had pulled it through oven cavity and in doing so pulled the wires loose from the fan motor, shorting out the board. Both had to be replaced.

Your oven is fan assisted and that is the fan you can see behind the slots. Air is drawn into those slots and the fan forces air to circulate from the side of the oven. In recipes you need to reduce your temperatures by 10'C and your cook times by 10%. The fan gives very even cooking with no hot spots in the oven. This particularly useful baking cakes. I am a chef :>)
try plugging back in now, it shouldnt remember the last cycle it was in and should even try to test the lock/latch upon power up as part of a self diagnosis. fan would remain on only as long as unit emained hot(in order to keep the electronics cool)
The top cooling fan is not working which cools the electrics above the oven and the control panel at the front. It could be the fan is faulty , the pcb which controls it is faulty - inside back panel on right. There is also a resistor on the power to the fan which burns out. All easy do it yourself fixes if you are electrical competent.
cold air from the fan forced element area in the oven? or from the air vent just above the door? if its from the air vent then this is normal if your oven senses the outside cabinet is getting to hot it will bring on the fan and if its still to hot after u turn it off the fan will continue as its circuit doesnt run through the control knobbs meaning it wont turn off with the oven its controlled via a overload thermostat so the fan will remain on til it gets within its acceptable temp range and the thermostat will cut power to the fan, if it remains on for hours and hours or even days you will be looking at a new thermostat (cheap as dirt like only a few bucks) or worst case a controller
the lights flashing in a sequence indicates the error code. The error codes indicates what the problem is with your stove. Based on the response to your message, it sounds like their error code is 12, one then two. It is not clear what your error code is.
There is an explanation of the error codes on the wiring diagram that comes with the stove. I found the wiring diagram for my stove taped to the inside of the kick plate. The kick plate had to be removed to find it.
my oven is not working either. the error code I get is 34. I am told by a technician that error code indicates that the computer is not recognizing that the cooling fan is operating, which is why my oven will not work. When I try and order a new cooling fan from Thermador, the website says that it is temporarily out of stock. Obviously, other people are having the same problem I am.
The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.
