Re: Wall Oven No Power
Yes the oven thermal fuse blew when the fan went off its also called a tcoswitch if you pull out the oven and take the top off there will be a tech sheet there that will give the location of the tco some are on top some are on back this can also happen if the oven is too tight in the cabinet not enough room around it to let the heat dissipate its a round metal disc with two wires on it

When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.
1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.
2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.
3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.
4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.
Calibrating the Oven
1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating. 2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.
3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.
4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.
Replacing the Oven Sensor
1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.
2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.
3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.
4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.
5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.
6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.
7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.
There does seem to be a fault, as the fan should run continuously even when the element goes off at the required temperature setting, and the light should atay on as well.
It suggests to me that there is a fault with the oven thermostat, or it is wired incorrectly.
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook-top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. I would also advise to inspect the junction point on the backside of the unit for a possible separation of the power cord as well. If all checks out ok, The main control board will be the culprit.
NOTE_ If your unit is equipped with a relay board, this will be the likely culprit, if all checks out ok. If there is no relay board present inside the unit, replace the maincontrol board.
That error means the main control board has a internal failure. The board will have to replaced to fix that issue. If you need detailed repair help with that visit the link below: Appliance Repair Help With Live Chat
