I thought mine was vibration as well and tried to tighten everything I could see without tearing the whole oven apart. Finally deciding it had to be the fan bearings, I decided to replace the fan. I called around and, of course, no one can come out "until 2 weeks from now" or "maybe next Thursday". Though I am strictly non-mechanical, I am curious. I did it and saved myself $150 labor. And it is easy. Here's how:

I have a Jennair JJW9527 single wall oven. The fan part number for this model is 741008383; this part is universal to a number of JA models. I got the part from the local appliance wholesale repair parts store (list is $113, I bargained the guy down 10% to $102.) Remove the door (Instructions elsewhere on how to do that, it's easy); there are 6 screws (3 on each side) holding the oven to the cabinet. Remove those and the 2 screws on the trim price below the oven. Now the oven can be pulled out of the wall. The unit itself weighs 138 lbs, not terribly heavy as it is being supported by the cabinet. I took a couple of 5 gallon Home Depot "HOMER" buckets, turned them upside down in front of the cabinet, and pulled the oven forward out of the wall enough for the back of the top to clear the top of the front of the cabinet and then leaned the front of the oven on my 2 buckets.
This way, the front of the oven is being supported by the buckets, the back is just inside the cabinet, and I can still work on it standing up without any discomfort. Remove the top lid, there are 16 sheet 1/4" head (?) sheet metal screws holding it on. Remove the lid and now you have access to the fan. Disconnect the wiring from the clips. The fan is held in place by a bracket with 2 screws on the base and 3 on the backside of the frame. Remove all 5 screws and lift out. Switch fans and reconnect bracket with vent side down. Reattach the bracket, reconnect the wiring, and replace the lid. Now, reposition the oven back into cavity and line up the install screws with holes in cabinet, reattach the oven door, and you are good to go.

Total time invested: maybe 60 minutes. Though I actually was thrilled I saved some serious money, I got a bigger rush realizing that Mr. Thumbs is not as dumb as he thought he was. Problem solved.

Fan noises are caused by contact of blades to housing, vibration of loose parts or bearings in motor. Check for these and oil fan shaft at bearing or oil holes. Is the noise from the vent or the oven itself.

It is making a loud noise as if it is catching onto something it comes and goes sometimes louder than first time it started


I'm guessing your problem is the fan in the oven. To fix: 1. with oven cold, remove back wall fan cover in oven. 2. remove fan. 3. clean and lubricate. 4. install fan. 5. install fan cover making sure fan is not touching. If cover does touch fan, gently bend cover away from fan and install.

JTP15 GE Oven - vibration noise


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.

I have an electrolux icon double wall oven. I turned on the self-clean function for 3hrs and it making a very loud noise during the cleaning process. Is that normal?


yes, if the humming is not the loud sound then the fan may need some lubrication or if it is tripping the circuit it will need replacing , but if it seems like it is a viberating noise from the fan , then it could be that its bearings are bad , but the whole fan motor would still need to be replaced , but if it sounds like it just may be a loose fan motor , then tightening up the screws on the motor would stop the vibrating sound and or the fan blades from scraping metal( another sound you may be hearing )

Oven fire, loud explosion sounding like a welding torch,flames. Very nervous!


Most likely an element burning out though it does sound a little more excessive than is the usual case. Was the fan oven on, in which case remoce the inner ear panel in the oven and check to see if the element surrounding the fan has burnt out

Noise exhaust fan on my Amana AOCS3040


The exhaust fan on my oven (Aosc3040) is loud also and has always been. Just hope nothing significant brakes because this model has been discontinued and it is difficult to get parts for it. I have been told by Amana that the life expentency of this oven is 10-13 years, so don't invest in anything that is not necessary. The glass door broke on mine and I cannot get a replacement piece. My kitchen looks terrible. It is a shame because the oven works great. Linda

Fan on during cooking


djpat, in looking at your schematic, it shows that the cooling fan will be on during bake and broil operations as well as cleaning. So this would be a normal operation. Catriver.

Noisy Oven when heating up & fan spinning


Neth, Im not familiar with this oven but I thing someone is handing you a line. I've been doing this for 30 years now and never saw a oven cavity arch when heating. The fact is that there is something wrong with the fan motor or fan blades itself. Call this cat back and have them honor your warranty...Catriver..post back.
