Door switch turns oven convection fan ''off'' when door closed

And vice versa....it turns convection fan ''on'' when door is opened. I attempted to reverse the two connection wires to the door switch (one red and one black), but same result no matter how the two wires are connected. I also have to open the door slightly in order to get the self-cleaning door lock to engage. Seems like some wire must be reversed in the electric control panel or the door switch that a repair person recently replaced is not compatible with this KitchenAid range, KitchenAid Model KERC507YAL0?

    It's a new switch. Before this switch was installed, the convection fan or self-cleaning oven would not engage at all.

    The wire connection appears intact and the switch is clearly communicating effectively to the control panel; it just tells it just the opposite of what it should be telling the control panel as to when the door is open or closed. The control panel seems to think the door is open when it is closed and thinks the door is closed when it is in fact open. Please be specific.

That means that there is a contact on the door switch wirings, you need to replace the wiring harness connecting to the door switch.

You will need to replace relay that controls the door function! This is the only way to fix this problem!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

How the wires on the door switch are connected would not make any difference since the function of the switch is to simply engage/join the two. I am inclined to think that what you posted is correct. The wires to the fan were fired wrong. In most units, the electronic control panel uses relays to actually do the switching of the fan. In the relay, there would be 2 pins, normally close and normally open. All that has to be done is to determine this single wire from the fan (the other would go to a common point), disconnect from its current position and connect to the other pin of the relay. Both pins would be near each other.

Pls postback result(s). Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

It can be possible that the door switch is faulty and needs replacement.

How do i make my convection fan turn off when i open the oven door


It sounds like there should be a switch on the door and it is malfunctioning. I would contact the manufacturer as it should be covered under warranty if it is malfunctioning. Especially for a $10,000 oven.

Our electric convection oven heats up and when you open the door and close again it no longer heats, fan stays on and the light goes on when door open and off when door is closed, any ideas?? Thanks


Hi, You can look at the micro switch on the oven door, sounds like it might have been installed on a normally open auxiliary rather than a normally closed aux. hope this helps

Sharp 930 AK Convection/Microwave Oven


When you close the oven door the latches operate a couple of interlock switches that control power. It may be that one of the door switches is bad or out of adjustment. It's also possible that one of the door latches is broken so it's not hitting the switch. There should be two door latches. Are they both there? This oven could be fixed by adjusting or replacing the interlock parts as needed. Because of concerns about microwave leakage from an improper door seal, you should have this oven serviced by a professional.

Sounds like a door switch problem or stuck relay contacts on the control PCB. Do the light and fan run too or just the T/T??

JVM1490 Low fan noise when not in use shuts off when door is open turns back on when door is closed?


it sounds as if your door switch is out of line. If this only happens when you close the door you may want to check they switches on the inside. one of them is either bad or you just may need to line it back up.
