Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven

2 Answers

Oven fan keeps running even after off and door open

We have a GE Profile TrueTemp oven capable of convection and regular baking.  (JTP18B...).
After we bake and all heat is off, a fan keeps running and running and running...even after the door is open.
Otherwise, the oven works.
Is this normal?
Is there a chance an open/close-indicator switch for the door is not working properly?

Re: 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!

Re: Oven fan keeps running even after off and door open

Yes this should be normal. The cooling fan should be running until the oven cooling area reaches a cool temp, usually around 290 to 190 depending on factory setting. This is to keep the electronics from getting too hot and failing. With current ovens, it is normal to see the cooling fans running.

My top oven won't reach temperature. Convection and broil work, bake doesn't. Over a year ago I did a self clean...hasn't worked since. I really need it to work especially with Thanksgiving next week.

It does sound like the element may be bad. The control will cycle the bake and broil elements to even the heat in the oven. if the element is out the oven won't heat well.

Should the fan on my built in electric convection oven come on during normal 'bake' mode (ie not 'convect' mode ?

There is a fan for cooling down whole oven, it can turn on and off during the regular bake or broil cycle to cool down the oven on the outside. It's controlled by its own thermostat, so it will even stay on for awhile when you turn the bake off.

How do I use this oven? Is it working correctly?

It would seem that the oven is small enough that a fan to flow the heat from the unit would be in use for both convection and bake modes. Usually convection ovens will have a "burst" of fan action during the bake process and it is not a steady fanning of the air that would dry out your cookies, ect. I have a small oven / microwave and my larger oven is a GE that has the "burst" convection that I described. Might not be that much help, but it's hard without more info on your unit. sometimes the model is behind the oven door.

GE Profile Stove baking option not working

Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at

Baking with digital oven

First let me address the temp ... Buy a meat thermometer and test it against the temp set in the oven.  Though that isn't the most accurate, it should prove whether or not it is way way off.
Second.. convection baking takes considerably less time.... 
Third... elevation plays a key factor on baking but not so much on cooking meat.  Baking above 2500ft elevation takes 20% longer and above.
