Thanks for your help but we never use the fan and it is as if the entire power in the oven shuts down except for the digital display and the noise it makes is disturbing im waiting for it to blow up or something but as i said it starts working again after about an hour or so

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.
I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.
The cooling fan will stay on for a long time after using the oven. It should shut off after a while. If it is running all night for instance there is a great possibility that a relay is stuck on the control board.
Does it keep heating food? You do not run it without the fan very long and maybe it will shut off or down when it senses the fan stopped and might stop cooking. You want to isolate it is the fan and not the magnatron (cooking device). It is pretty new for that but always a posibility.
Do you have a straight vent fan that you can turn on without cooking? try that and see what you get. If it does the same, I think you have a defective fan.
GE oven - SHUTS OFF ON IT'S OWN
I have a built-in GE Electric oven - model #JTP20B0F7BB. It shuts off in the middle of cooking sometimes, but not all of the time. It does it about 1 out of 4 times that I use the oven. Any help would be appreciated?
Hi,Everything operates normally, but the oven shuts off after varying amounts of
time. This could be a faulty magnetron, bad cooling fan (or just built up dust
and grime block ventilation grilles), bad thermal protector, faulty controller,
some other intermittent component, or bad connections.
If resetting it allows cooking to resume immediately, if even for a few
seconds, I would not suspect the magnetron or thermal problem as no cool
down time is required. It could be bad connections in the controller or elsewhere, a marginal door interlock switch, or a controller problem.
Jiggle the door to see if this will cause it to shut off.
If the magnetron was overheating, you would not be able to resume cooking
until it cooled and the thermal protector reset. If it just stopped working
(i.e., the filament opened), everything would appear normal but there would
be no heating. If the magnetron were shorting, there would likely be a loud
hum associated with the periods where there was no heat.
If it is not possible to resume cooking for a few minutes indicating that
something needs time to cool off, then the magnetron could be faulty but
check for the obvious cooling problems first: blocked or dirty ventilation
grill. Determine if the magnetron cooling fan is operating by listening for
its sound or looking through the ventilation opening in the back of the oven.
If it is not, there could be a broken or weak belt, gummed up or lack of
lubrication, other mechanical problems, a bad motor, or bad connections.
Extremely high power line voltage may also result in overheating on a
poorly designed or oven where the components are marginal.
Make sure the stirrer fan is turning normally. Should it gets stuck,
some models may sense this and shut down/restart.
After the oven is switched off, the after-run of the cooling fan is controlled by an electromechanical thermostat switch. The fan can switch back on, due to residual oven heat that accumulates within the oven's outer case and reactivates the cooling fan temperature switch.
Considering yours is making buzzing sounds and activates on and off, the fan's thermal switch may have dirty contacts or just be defective and require replacement.
