Convection oven not working properly???

I've never had a convection oven before but I don't think my new oven one is working properly. I put a casserole in set for 400 degree for 30 minutes. It was barely warm. I change to regular bake, same temp and time and it cooked just fine. I noticed that when I cancelled the convection bake and started the regular bake it preheated from 300 degrees. I know that the over automatically reduces the temp by 25 degress in convection but it seems to me that it only got to 300 degrees ?? I'm pretty sure that the fan runs. Any ideas?

    I watched the fan thru the glass door and it appeared to "stutter". Like it was trying to work. I opened the door and gave the fan blades a bit of "help" by spinning it.

    It nows spins steadily but it seems really slow to me. How can I now if it's spinning at the speed it's supposed to be or even close. Shouldn't it be spinning really fast?

    I've used the oven twice in the traditional bake mode and tried to use the convection mode twice. As far as I'm concerned it is still brand new since the convection oven never baked anything.

    Knowing this do you still think the start switch is bad?

    Are you not reading my responses?

    I told you that I've used the oven a total of 4 times. Period. Twice traditional mode then twice in convection mode.

Your correct the only difference between a regular oven and a convection oven is that it has a fan.when you open the oven door the fan should be spinning to a stop if this is not the case you may have a problem with the fan.

    the start switch is bad in the old is your oven?another thing to check is make sure the fan blade isnt just spinning on the motor shaft{there may be a set screw that holds the blade to the shaft so its not loose}.if thats not the case you need a motor.

    from everything you told me i still belive the motor is the oven under warranty?if you definitely seen the blades 'stutter' and pushed the blades and they started working but not as fast.MOTOR MOTOR

    if you rarely use the convection mode the motor still gets hot from the heat of the oven regardless what mode your in.and prematurely motor failure.

    its the motor.they can be defective straight from the factory.i couldnt count how many times this has happened to me in my line of work.again you should have a warranty since you only used it 4 times.

Halogen tabletop oven

You can use any oven-safe dish that will fit inside the oven (preferably, with the low rack in place). I've seen 3 qt round casseroles that will fit when you aren't using the extender. (For example, this should fit: ) Some casseroles are sold with non-oven safe lids. Make sure that you check the temperature range for the specific dish. Some are only rated to 400 degrees F.

Unfortunately, I do not know of any sources that sell the accessories separately.

I hope this helps.

GE JVM1790WK convection microwave

I assume you've referred to your owner's manual to be sure you are operating the convection properly?

If for some reason you don't still have your owner's manual, you can get it here. See the tips on page page 30.

You can also do a hard reset by unplugging the oven for a couple of minutes, plugging it back in, then setting the clock and trying again.

If it's still not working, you may have a bad sensor or other problem.

I have a rival casserole crockpot model number,3050 slowcooker, 260watts, I was wondering if I can use the stoneware part in my gas oven? Thank you vicki

Yes, you can use the stoneware in your gas oven. I am using mine right now in my Convection Oven baking at 400 degrees. I use mine quite often in the oven for baked beaks, then transfer to my Crockpot.

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...

If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp

I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
