Question about Cadco OV-400 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Grinding noise every now and then

After the oven is turned on there is a sound coming from the back, kind of like somethin something is loose or rubbing. We have opened it up and looked at it and it seems fine. Could it be the motor on one of the fans?

Re: Grinding noise every now and then

If this is a self-cleaning model it is possible that the movement of the mechanical parts are at fault. Toward the back you should be able to find the motor and drive rod. Check these first and yes, there could be a loose or faulty fan motor.

How long is the sound there ?

Cooling fan makes a rattle noisy when the oven gets hot & after turning the oven off. Very very annoying.

I would suggest taking a look at the fan and seeing if any hardware has come loose. A loose holding screw will cause the fan to wobble in its cage and make noise like the one you're describing. If all the hardware is tight, try a dab of WD40 to get everything moving properly.

De dietrich range cooker very noisy when oven on?

Have you checked the exhaust fans within the oven? These can make a lot of noise if something has come lose. They should be located at the top of your oven or on the back. I would check that.
Good luck

My electric Oven keeps tripping the breaker off as well as making a popping noise while doing it and leaving a burning smell. When i turn the knobs to the burner on i hear a clicking noise coming from the...

Hi. YES you most definately have a short. The burning smell is coming from either the wire arcing and thus producing ozone and heat, or the insulation on the wire is being burnt. Take the back off the control unit to expose the wires and see if you can see where the wiring is burnt. It could be a loose connection, or something more serious.

If in doubt, call a professional repairman to check it out.

Seems like the blower motor is making a lot of grinding noise and the fan is not spinning quickly. also the fan continues to spin when the door is open.

the blower wheel has come loose from it's base, this happens a lot with ovens where aluminium foil is used, as the Moffat oven was designed to be the ultimate pastry oven, free flow air system was designed into it, I would start with the blower wheel as it is usually the cheaper of the 2 to buy.

GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off

This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.
