It appears your ERC/CLOCK has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

I have a double whirlpool fan oven. The fan doesn't always work, seems to stick. What do I need to do to get it working? We've had it less than 3 years but I've never cleaned it. Is this why it doesn't...


Do you mean the fan inside the oven box in the back wall. This is the fan for the Convection bake etc. If so this is how it works..

a) Bake feature - that fan does not come on

b) Convection bake - that fan comes on during bake cycle

So that fan works for several features but not for all. It helps to circulate the hot air inside better for a more even, fast bake.

Do you mean the fan in the control board area. It is there to get the hot air trapped in the oven walls out. Not the heat inside the oven bake box area. This fan works differently depending the model and/or brand. Some models fan works from the time you start. Some models fan comes on only when that area reaches a certain high temperature.

When trying to thermal/radiant bake, convection fan at the rear does not stop turning after the preheat. Why doesn't this happen? Isn't it then convection baking?


Most wall ovens have a cooling fan that comes on when the oven has been on for some time. It is separate from the convection operation. It should shut off after the oven has been off for a time.

Oven not working


It sounds like the element/s have blown, especially if the fan is still working o/k.
You cannot always tell by looking at them if they are faulty or not.
Only way to be sure is to test them with a meter.
Hope this helps.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

How do I use this oven? Is it working correctly?


It would seem that the oven is small enough that a fan to flow the heat from the unit would be in use for both convection and bake modes. Usually convection ovens will have a "burst" of fan action during the bake process and it is not a steady fanning of the air that would dry out your cookies, ect. I have a small oven / microwave and my larger oven is a GE that has the "burst" convection that I described. Might not be that much help, but it's hard without more info on your unit. sometimes the model is behind the oven door.

Ge profile oven/convection oven humming when on convection settin


ensure that your convection fan is turning
a hum on this model usualy means that the convection motor can seize up a bit
sometimes all you need to do is redjust the fan blade

My upper oven/ convection function on my dacor ecs230b will not heat


Bake and convection bake settings both use the bottom bake element to heat. It would be unusual for bake to work without conv. bake working. You also have pure convection which uses a different element surrounding the conv. fan on the back of the unit. If you press a feature and nothing happens it's the touch pad. If it comes on then turns back off it's probably the ERC (clock). If it comes on and wont heat only in pure conv. possibly an upper relay board or element problem.
