I called for service regarding my problem of Feb. 10, 2007 (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.) Over the phone, service technician said it was the control panel and would cost approx. $500. for the part. I mentioned the service flashes and there was no direct answer given. My serial number is X60801006. Is my oven a lost cause?

Re: 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.

Sounds like the cooling fan bearings are worn, hence the noise after you turn the cooker off.This fan is in the top of the oven and helps to keep the inside cooker electrics cool and often keeps going for a while after you have turned the cooker off. Best to call an engineer to check this out for you!
One of the relay boards is a downdraft relay board....I would be
suspecting the main clock assembly as it is the one that shuts down and
controls everything. This might also increase the fan speed randomly, turn it on at random temperatures etc., You have to get a new board. You can find it here http://www.affordableappliance.com
Hi I am Vortash This sound like the thermostat cut out switch and if it is glowing hot then you have a serious DANGEROUS fault
it means that it is not disconnecting as it should and has shorted ot .. please get it changed immdeatly as it may short to the oven body causing it to become live .. now that should mean that the house fuse should blow .. but on the slight chance it don't you would be electrocuted if you touched the oven please call a domestic service engineer now Regards Vortash
We have a double ge wall oven. The vent fans had become really loud. I checked the price for new fans...$275 each! Plus service of $200. If your oven is not too old, go to GE service purchase a 1 year service contract for $93.00. Wait one one month till it takes effect. Call them and request service and the entire replacement is free.
So, you should have a "-s-" being displayed if you have the child lock on.
The switch for selecting the oven mode( oven, fan oven, grill etc)
-from its off position, turn it one click left so the light comes on, and then click it back to off. Do this three times in quick succession. The "-s-" should now have disappeared and you can use your oven again.
what you are describing is the cooling fan. That fan will come on to keep the electronic control panel cool. It is normal for tat to come on even if your done with the oven. I dont think is should be as loud as you describe. I would try the oven again and if it is still loud I would call for service because it is new. That fan will also come on when you use the self clean cycle.
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. Catriver..post back.
