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.

My fan only runs sometimes


The fan is controlled by the door switch. If the unit is turned to the heating position the door switch turns on the fan, then a centrifugal switch in the fan motor provides power to the heating controls.

How do i fix the light socket to my Frigidaire Gallery 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Convection Range


Hi michell51238 - From what you are describing it sounds like the range may possibly have a faulty light switch or wiring failure that only a professional can repair. I personally recommend consulting a certified technician for a proper diagnosis and to move forward accurately.

Frigidaire Gallery convection oven fan won't stop when door opens


Sounds like one or more microswithes have either gone bad or the plunger that actuates them is broken or mis alligned. You should be able to atleast the plunger on the cavity of the oven where the door would press it in. After locating the switches get a multimeter and check each one for continuity. You can go to www.apdepot.com for an illistrated breakdown. Make sure you write your brand and model number down because you'll need them.

I have a Kitchen Aid range model KGST307GBS0. The


The door light switch was broken (upper right face of oven). The door switch is automatically activated when the door is opened to turn on the oven light. When the door is closed the switch is depressed to turn off the light. It seems the switch position is detected by the oven and if it is in the open position it will not allow the oven to function properly (reach temperature or allow the cleaning cycle to run). I temporarily locked the broken switch in the closed position, which allows the oven to function. A new switch was ordered for replacement.

The fan has stopped orking on my new world oven


I have no worked on a new world oven, but i will assume you speak of a convection oven.
Typically convection ovens have a door switch a motor and a run/start capacitor which helps the motor "turn over". I suggest, you have the oven cool, remove anything blocking the convection motor. Take your hand and spin the wheel, then while its spinning turn it on. You may have to try counter or clockwise. If you cant spin it at all, you have a bad motor, if the motor starts up with your manual assistance, the capacitor is bad. If there is not even a hum, a door switch is faulty, that or the motor has a thermal overload (usually a red button on the motor that needs resetting).

Having problems with fan assisted oven on leisure roma 100 cooker, it doesnt seem to work everything else seems to work fine, Can anyone help me


Often these fan assisted type ovens have a safety that keeps th fan off if it believes the door is open. Look for uneven door closing or cracks in the door to frame closure. Is this a commercial convection oven?

Jenn-Air Gas-Electric Grill Ranfe with Convection Oven M# SVD48600


if possible, squat down in front of the range and put your ear as close to the bottom of the control panel/top of the door when you close it. there is a small motor that pulls the door in when you use the self-cleaning function. perhaps that motor is running all the time? its quite, more of a humm. this could explain why its locking itself. other than that, my convection oven JennAir has a small fan in the back that runs when the oven is on, regular or convections mode. you can see this fan squirel cage in the back wall of the oven. if you were to pull the range out, you will notice (atleast on mine) that there is another much smaller fan on the backside of the range behind the removable metal panel. what the smaller fan is for, i have no idea. so there are two fans, plus if you have the down draft feature, thats 3 total. hope this helps somehow.

Convection oven fan continues to run even with door open and there is an electrical odor.


My JBP90 GE Profile convection oven had the same problem. The problem, in my case was caused by the door switch that controls the interior oven light. It also controls the convection fan and possibly the convection heating element.

1. DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!
CONFIRM POWER IS DISCONNECTED BY OBSERVING DISPLAY GOING DARK
In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer

9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!
