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?

    Our fan starts up by itself if just the light has been left on.  Won't turn off until the unit reached room temperature, that can be about 3 to 4 hours after heating up a couple of pizza slices.

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!

    Thank you! Toothbrush and vacuum cleaner worked to clean it. By the way, the fan should be relatively quiet. If it is noisy, push it back away from the fan blades. We had a noisy, long-running fan for years. Just fixed it with this suggestion and the one about pushing the screen away also found on fixya.

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.

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.

F9 error code while using the convection baking function


This is a lock switch error code. Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch. If the switch cannot be re adjusted, it must be replaced.

Never used Convection JTP 5650DI55


Did you try going to the GE website? If not, try it:

http://www.geappliances.com/

When you pull up the website, you can click on the blue down arrow located in the box at the top of the web page, next to the work SEARCH and click on "USE & CARE MANUALS. Put your model number into the next box to the right and hit GO.

If you are having trouble after entering what you believe is the proper model/serial number, you can look at the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section to determine whether you have actually entered the proper number.
