SOURCE: Kenmore oven blows hot air out at top

The hot air is supposed to come out so you can heat other things. If the oven is loosing heat, try to see if vent has flap, or test the temp sensor

Fan oven will not turn off can only isolate at switch on wall all other switches working

Hello Eamon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The identity number that you provided is not a model number. If you took it off your user manual it is not the model number.

I need your model number. It is located on a label on the face of your oven or on the side of your oven door.

Send me your model number so I can look at the wiring diagram.

Your oven fan runs for 2 reasons:
1.) To circulate the hot air in your oven.
2.) To vent the hot air in your oven when the heat is too hot.

Send me your model number so I can see what you have and help you.

New Kenmore elite range blows cold air from oven vent when top burners are on. Is this normal

That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.

Why doesn't my oven door shut properly

What brand is this oven? I'll make a guess it is a Jenn-Air, because that brand has a weakness with the oven door hinges and receptors (receptacles), and they need to be replaced.

While oven on range top front is very hot

I do not know the unit but check if the oven vent is near the front. It is also possible the door seal on the top of the door is failing.

Hi newish oven,seems when all the ovens are off the fan is blowing cold air, any ideas?

cold air from the fan forced element area in the oven? or from the air vent just above the door? if its from the air vent then this is normal if your oven senses the outside cabinet is getting to hot it will bring on the fan and if its still to hot after u turn it off the fan will continue as its circuit doesnt run through the control knobbs meaning it wont turn off with the oven its controlled via a overload thermostat so the fan will remain on til it gets within its acceptable temp range and the thermostat will cut power to the fan, if it remains on for hours and hours or even days you will be looking at a new thermostat (cheap as dirt like only a few bucks) or worst case a controller

Hot steam is blowing out of the vent below control knobs. None of the surface burners are on, but the oven is.

This is normal. There is an oven vent along the bottom of the operator console on most free standing ranges. It should mention this in your owner's manual. Its also a good idea not to store items on top of the stove when you are using the oven, because of the heat escaping the oven vent.

Fan oven door, cooker surround and hob become burining hot when using fan oven

Sounds like a problem to me. Check your oven door gasket to make sure it's intact and also that the oven door is closing completely when this overheating occurs. Although some heat will rise, it shouldn't become "burning hot".
