JS968S0F4SS convection noise

When in convection mode the oven is quite noisy during fan operation (not a rattle more of a loud hum when the fan spins). I have checked the fan and it is not loose. Suggestions for potential sources of noise? The oven is around 8 years old and otherwise in excellent condition.

SOURCE: convection oven making rattling sound.

It is most likeky that the fan bearing is worn and thus causing the rattling sound. You will probably need to replace the fan. Check first that there is no obstacle in the way of the fan rotating.

Replacement of the fan will require the back of the oven to be removed giving access to the fan unit, which will need to have the wires disconnected and the fan assembly unbolted. Fitting is the reverse.

Always remember to switch off the power before working on electrical equipment.

Loud fan rattling in convection mode


On the repairs I have done, it has always been a bad fan motor bearing. The only way you are going to be able to tell is to tear it down to the fan assembly and feel if the fan blade or blower is loose. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Our fan seems to make a loud rattling noise


Hello, Happy new year ! Now for the oven problem. Do you know if it is the convection fan in the oven cavity or the cooling fan in the cabinet ? If it is the conv. fan, it's quite likely just a loose fan blade. remove the rack's and then the cover of the fan and you should be able to inspect the fan blade and more specifically the retaining nut at the center. You can tighten it if loose,( carefully they tend to bend easy ) but be sure the fan itself isn't bent or damaged in some fashion. If that doesn't solve the problem let me know I'll try to direct you to the cooling fan, however it is much more involved and I typically suggest a pro tech. Hope this help's, good luck and thank's for visiting "fixya" today. Macmarkus :)

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

Sometimes the fan blade mounting nut gets loose. Remove the cover from the fan and see if the blade wobbles. If so,tighten the nut on the fan motor.

Yes, it can be fixed quite simply.
First check that the fan is not catching the cover or grill, if it is not remove panel covering fan and see if the fan blade is loose,on the shaft, they are usually held on by a left handed nut., so to tighten go the oppisite way to what you normally do, if that does not cure it, then your only solution is to replace the fan motor complete.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and a merry xmas.
