The cooling fan is controlled by the EOC and a temperature sensor located at the top of the oven near the control panel. If the temperature is above a 100 degrees there the cooling fan will continue to run. If it does not turn off when the temperature goes below this, there is a problem with either the EOC or temperature sensor. Try turning off the power to your oven for at least an hour to reset the EOC, this may fix the problem.

The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.


Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

Fes367dsa fan runs while baking but it is not a convection oven


Chris Lindstrom,

I understand that you have a fan running while you are baking. This is a totally normal function of your applliance. A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to cool internal parts. It is normal, and the fan may continue to run even after oven is turned off.

-Best Regards-

Have a stoves 720 es main oven fan does not stay on to cool oven after switch off> also the oven will not trun back on when it is still hot or warm ? will


First things first. There are two fans. One in the bottom oven and one to provide background cooling. The background cooling fan turns on when anything is turned on. (Fan oven/top oven/grill). Just operate the top oven for a moment and this should cause the cooling fan to operate. There is a printed circuit board that controls the cooling fan and for how long the fan should stay on once everything has been turned off. (About 7 mins). If this fan is not running then the fan/motor could be faulty, or the circuit board or the resistor on the fan terminal block. The reason the oven will not turn back on is that the residual heat in the oven unit as a whole against the fan oven, is probably too high which causes the overheat device to operate.
You will have to take the oven out of the kitchen carcass, take the top and rear panels off and get an electrician to test and found out which item is not working/failed. Try espares for parts.

Why does the fan run on for so long after the oven is switched off?


There is a thermostat that controls the fan, until the oven cools to a preset level the fan will continue to run to cool things down.

F2E1 on stove after cooking on temps of 425-450 for 20mins stove shuts off and can not restart even if power is turned off and then started. must wait for stove to cool down and then press cancel and stove...


Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.

My oven is constantly blowing out air at the front? Why


Your oven has a fan to draw in cool air at the bottom of the front panel, pass it around the case, and then blow it out at a position towards the top of the oven. This is a completely different fan that is at the back of the oven itself.

The cooling fan is necessary as the materials in modern ovens are kept light and thin as possible to save weight and manufacturing costs, however the flipside of this is that if not cooled by the cooling fan, they would be damaged by the heat inside the oven itself.

The cooling fan will continue to run for some time after the oven is switched off, because it will wait until the oven has fully cooled down before stopping the cooling fan.

Self cleaning oven the fan will not go off after


Self cleaning ovens usually use very hot temperatures. Therefore if your fan is designed to help your oven cool, it will run until your oven is cool. Leave it running until your oven is cool and it should stop. It it does not let me know.

Fan runs for hours after use


The fan is in place to cool the electronics it will run after the unit is off it is possible you have a bad sensor on the fan circuit leaving it to run too long

Oven fan keeps running even after off and door open


3 to 4 hours is a long time. Get to the fans (behind the control panel) and check the screens for dust. Chances are the screens are clogged with dust and need to be cleaned so the fans can move air for cooling better. I had this problem on my GE JTP14, and after cleaning just one fan it can keep up with cooling the electronic area while the oven is running. It runs much less often.

Safety first! cut the breaker before removing anything with a nice conductive screwdriver! Hope this helps!
