On some Maytags if the defrost thermostat in the freezer gets above its setting (around 50 degrees) the fans won't run. It shouldn't be like that very long...10 minutes tops then they'll come on all by themselves.

2004 Chevy Monte Carlo 3.4 the a/c stopped blowing,then it started overheating to the red within a couple miles,replaced the thermostat,the relay switch some days it overheats sometimes it runs fine

Are the cooling fans coming on ? What relay switch did you replace ?
The BCM will request low speed cooling fan operation from the PCM under the following conditions:
Engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 103?°C (217?°F).

When A/C is requested and the ambient temperature is more than 10?°C (50?°F).

A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1310 kPa (190 psi).

After the vehicle is shut off if the engine coolant temperature at key-off is more than 117?°C (243?°F) and system voltage is more than 12 volts. The fans will stay on for approximately 3 minutes.

The engine cooling fan system consists of 2 electrical cooling fans and 3 fan relays. The relays are arranged in a series/parallel configuration that allows the PCM to operate both fans together at low or high speeds. The cooling fans and fan relays receive battery positive voltage from the engine wiring harness junction block. The ground path is provided at G101.
During low speed operation, the PCM supplies the ground path for the low speed fan relay through the low speed cooling fan relay control circuit. This energizes the FAN CONT #1 relay coil, closes the relay contacts, and supplies battery positive voltage from the FAN CONT #1 fuse through the cooling fan motor supply voltage circuit to the right cooling fan. The ground path for the right cooling fan is through the FAN CONT #2 relay and the left cooling fan. The result is a series circuit with both fans running at low speed.
During high speed operation the PCM supplies the ground path for the FAN CONT #1 relay through the low speed cooling fan relay control circuit. After a 3-second delay, the PCM supplies a ground path for the FAN CONT #2 relay and the FAN CONT #3 relay through the high speed cooling fan relay control circuit. This energizes the FAN CONT #2 relay coil, closes the relay contacts, and provides a ground path for the right cooling fan. At the same time the FAN CONT #3 relay coil is energized closing the relay contacts and provides battery positive voltage from the FAN CONT #2 fuse on the cooling fan motor supply voltage circuit to the left cooling fan. During high speed fan operation, both engine cooling fans have there own ground path. The result is a parallel circuit with both fans running at high speed.

Unplug the fan on sensor. It should have one green wire and one black wire. Use a paper clip and jump the two wires. Turn the key to the run position, the engine does not need to be running. Does the fan come on? If not check the green wire for 12 volts and the black wire for ground. If there is no ground than run a new ground wire. If the is no power check the heater/air conditioning fuse in the under dash fuse block. If there is power and ground make sure both the cooling fan fuses are good and both the cooling fan relays are good.

Cont question on impala ck engine

Haven't yet checked the coolant temp sensor ? Does the vehicle shift good , engine run good ? If yes the coolant sensor isn't any problem . Is this your only problem ,The 25 amp mini fuse that keeps blowing is labled as fan cont #1 > You have a direct short to ground on the circuit that fues powers up . Do yo know how to find a short ? Videos on youtube for checking for shorts . It's probably a wiring problem . Insulation rubbed through , touching metal on the vehicle somewhere . Your vehicle cooling fans have two speeds low an high , that's it . Relay Driven Dual Cooling Fan Diagnostics

After the oven has been on for awhile it will start beepin the f3 code. We replaced the sensor and it just did it again. The difference now is I was able to turn the oven back on and it is working again....

Check for a bad connection or a bare wire touching the cabinet...check for 1100 ohm resistence at room temp of sensor. could be a bad one again,..or the board is acting up, but, check for bare wire

You don't say where you are.

You probably need a new thermostat. Cost for the part should be about $10. Labor to change it out should be $50 to $70, it takes less than an hour. Spring for fresh coolant, too.

The fans: the driver's side fan is activated by the A/C. I know, I know it's winter. But if you're running your defroster, you're running your a/c too. When the a/c is on, the fan can be on, too.

Get f-3 code after oven on for awhile

F3 is Open oven temperature sensor circuit, to fix this you need to read oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor ( approx 1000 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact, if wirings are ok, then replace the probe.

Oven fan does not turn off

assumming its the cooling fan( which is only supposed to run to cool the controls). as per my diagram which wasnt very clear there is no thermostat controlling the fan , looks as though it gets its pawer directly form control board/clock assy , perhaps a relay is stuck closed, i would look for t he wire diag on the back of unit and trace back the fan wires perhaps theres a thermostat not listedn my diag.
