Question about Whirlpool RBD245PD Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Oven fan The fan to my oven keeps clicking on and off every 2-3 minutes (sometimes even more frequently), all day long. This is when it has not been in use for many hours or even the entire day. The oven is stone cold, yet the fan clicks on, runs for maybe 2 seconds, then clicks off. Twice last week, the display panel showed PF for power failure, and the clock had to be reset. There was no power failure anywhere else in the room or house.

Re: oven fan

Helt, there was a service flash on this model having to do with a wire in the wiring harness not made to specifications. Now, Im just going by the model number posted. Depending on your serial number your model could be included. What it sounds like is that your fan limit switch is gone wacky. This is located in the rear of the oven and tests would have to be done to determine if that switch is closing for some reason. There were other service flashes on this model concerning the thermal cut out mounted just below the vent causing it to open during cleaning. You might want to call for service and see if your appliance is covered under these service flashes. back.

Oven works well some days but occasionally will quit heating intermittently. Sometimes becoming frequently usually.

Dan, try cleaning or just replace the ovens temperature sensor, normally located on back wall, its like a copper wire with a small slim copper tube on the end.

Possibly the fan in the oven has developed a fault. Get an electrician to come and test the fan.

The worker should do tests on the oven to make sure everything is safe to use once any repairs are done.

I have a MEW6527DDS built in oven. This all happens when the oven is NOT in use: The fan goes on and off, sometimes for a second, sometimes for 10+, ALL.DAY.LONG! The 'click' sound you hear when...

Wow deffinately sounds like the control brd it sounds like a pretty good examination by somebody that is used to electric.It would be a very complicated troubleshoot over a message brd.The temp problem could be calibration issues or a bad thermistor not reading to the oven correctly.but intermittent kicking on off could be more.Maybe some programming issues usually shut the power off and back on to reset but if your turning off the breaker that would rule that out.Maybe turn of power and chek plugs and wire for loose connections.that would be a good start.

No they usually run 2 minutes one way and 2 minutes in opposite direction to even out the baking.
Unless its erratic then something else is wrong.

Baumatic oven not heating up. Grill and fan fine.

if it is the b180, the answer (having just fixed this) is really simple.

The coily bit is the oven element - it will have gone. A new one from eBay cost me about 6 quid.

Turn the power off.
Inside the oven use a philips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws (KEEP THEM !)
You will see a coily thing and a fan.

You unscrew 3 more screws (2 on the left and 1 on the right).

now ... bit tricky, have the new one inside the oven and take each wire off one at a time and put it on the new element.

Screw it back on but DONT put the last panel back in.

Turn the oven on maximum for about 2 minutes and see it glow red.

Turn the oven off. Make a cup of tea and have a couple of biscuits while admiring how good you are and waiting for the element to cool down!!!

Put the final panel back in place. Whole thing (including a cup of tea) takes about half an hour.

3rd blown element

no connection between lights on fan. problem is that bulbs these days are poor quality (but cheap)
it is common for these circular elements to go. usually last about 2 years. worth checking tho that fan is turning at right speed

Bosch HBN 455 Oven Cooling-Fan Issue

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.

Oven fan keeps on clicking

There are two things that you can check. one is your circuit breaker itself and the other is the internal terminal block that the main wires feed into. the terminal block could have loose wires which will cuase an intermittant PF to appear on the oven, disconnect from power before checking. The voltage at the oven will have to be checked with a multimeter to verify the proper levels. Be sure to be extra careful around electrical connections while the oven is connected to power.
