There is an overheat stat in the oven which turns it off if overheating. the causes are several. 1 - oven thermostat is faulty and oven is reachingf too high a temp. 2 - there is a second fan in the casing to keep the casing cool. 3 - this second fan is turned on by a fan start stat which may be faulty and is not starting the cooling fan 4 - the overheat stat itself is faulty. it is a bit difficult to narrow it down from afar. get back to me if you want

Bosch oven cooling fan is continuously on at the same speed and is on always no matter what the temperature is. Upper heating element does not turn red hot in broil mode.

The oven has internal fan at back of oven encircling the element that should get reshot when stat turned up high. Also there is cooling fan under lid to keep the wiring area cool.This should stay on for around ten - fifteen minutes after cooking finished. David "The Famous Forry"

Where do I locate the fuses that controls the oven heating.

Hello Pat;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you go into self cleaning both of your burner element peak at there max temperature, well above 500 degrees F.

1.) Oven Element - Over time the elements will fail. Turn the upper element on. Inspect for sparking where there may be a crack in the element. Turn the upper element off, inspect for any cracks.

If there are no cracks then you lower element is fine.

2.) Each of your ovens have a independent thermocouple. Both may have failed due to the extreme heat. Oven thermocouples will fail on older units.

3.) Lets go to the source. You have what is called a infinite switch in your oven. This switch controls your oven temperature. If this switch fails then your oven will not work.

Ok, lets assume you or a friend are good with tools. With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms, In the back of your oven there is a sheet metal cover. Remover the cover, disconnect the two contacts on each thermocouple, and Ohm them out. (Power Off at your breaker box first) You should get a reading of '0' Ohms, anything else the thermal couples are bad.

But, I tend to believe, You have a bad infinity switch. You can also Ohm this out as above with a reading of '0' Ohms.

This component is about $35.00 USD.

If I were still working for Sears Home Services I would charge you $350.00- $450.00 for this service call. Send me your model number and let me see what you have.

Hi, I have 90 AJC 06 GC. AEG single oven. At thhe moment when the oven is turned off the cooldown fan will not turn off so I have to turn it of at the main fuse box. Also sometimes the oven turns itself...

The oven cooldown fan will sometimes run for 10 to 15 minutes after turning the oven off. This enables the outer shell of the oven to cool down. Most ovens also have an inbuilt thermal overload in the outer shell. If the temperature in the outer shell gets too hot it will open circuit the oven power until it cools down a bit.

How do i turn the fan off.

If you mean the oven fan that will turn off on control switch.I think you may be talking about the cooling fan.This is to cool the electrical panel on the top front of cooker. It comes on after the oven heats up and may stay running for 15 or 20 minutes after cooker is turned off it will turn off after the unit has cooled down sufficiently for the controller.
Hope I helped.

Good Luck.

Hi, I only just installed Baumatic single built in fan oven (B0616SS). I did as instructed and left on for 39 - 40 minutes at max 250 temp. I noticed that the oven door was very hot to touch, too hot! This...

Hello- This is a brand new model, but it works the same as the rest. Heat is produced by the elements. The fan has an element that glows when heating the air. --Convection oven glass gets hotter than normal fanless models.-- This is all normal operation of the oven.  To ensure full life of oven, avoid using the 'self-clean' feature. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' cycle. Please reply to this post if info is helpful- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Lock would not open after cleaning process has been canceled, oven is still hot

Don't open or try to open the oven door, until it has cooled down completely. The oven heats to a very hot temperature, usually 800 to 900 degrees. The door locks itself once it gets to a certain temperature, and will not allow the door to be opened until it cools below a certain temperature. On some units, this can take hours to cool down enough to unlock. If you try to force it before the cooldown is complete, it usually results in a repair call. If it still will not unlock when it is cool, turn your power to the oven off for 20 minutes, then turn on and reset your oven controls. Sometimes you have to put the oven back into the self-cleaning cycle, and then cancel it immediately to cycle the oven door lock. If it still won't unlock, call a repair company out to service this. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Cleaning oven got a warning beep and an F1 indicator in light panel

F1 error code normally means the oven temperature has exceeded the safe limit for the oven and the beep is to warn you to switch off until it has cooled down.

Normally this is caused by failure of the oven temperature control sensor which then fails to cut off the power to the heating element as it should.

Sometimes it is just a 'glitch' wich can be solved by turning off the power to the oven for a few minutes and then turning back on but if the problem persists you will need to replace the sensor.
