Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven
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?
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!

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.
