Question about Jenn-Air JJW8230D Electric Double Oven
The ovens are 5 years old and have always had this problem.
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.
