My oven doesn't seem to cool down and turn off fast enought. Last night I baked a casserole for an hour, I hit cancel to turn it off. The touch screen was dark, so it looked like it was off, yet for 2 hours... no exaggeration... 2 hours it blew hot air and the burners were still hot. It finally turnes itself off, but it always takes about 2-3 hours. I noticed the fan isn't on in the back when I turn it off... My question is, does the fan only come on when you are cooking with the convection features, or should it come on during oven cool down. It doesn't come on, so that may be my problem. I just don't know. I can't find my instructions. Am I doing something wrong?
"...but uses a bunch of air conditioning in the summer"
Well, it wouldn't actually use *less* air conditioning if it cooled down slower by itself. The total amount of heat released from the oven (and hence pumped out from the house by the air conditioning) would be the same, but over a longer time.
The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer

Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.
This is normal...there is a cooling fan built in to your oven designed to cool the facial controls when hot and can take some time to cool to an acceptable temper?ture that's why you can feel the air blowing,, usually above the oven door...if you switch off at the mains you are risking the plastic components on the facial melting. Just leave it to Run it is a very low wattage motor and costs very little to run
Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.
IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com The
only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the
clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the
clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self
clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven
to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you
Here are solution on how to clean up your oven below.
Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.
Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."
Let the oven do its work;it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods.
Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.
most ovens have what is called tempture sensor,its job is to read the tempture within your oven if this sensor is faulty then it sends the wrong signal to your display,you talk about a thermometer showing a different temp please do not put this thermometer in your oven some of these contain mercury and could explode in your oven.I would advise you to call a electrication and get him to test your tempture sensor.sorry i cant help you any better.adrian
power surges can short out the electonics in appliances. If you can locate where the tech sheet is and I would say its behind the control panel on top, look at the wiring diagram and see if there are any replaceable fuse's. Or a resetable fuse for the heating element. If not check to see if power is getting to the main control bord. If there is power there you may need to replace the control.
