Question about Ovens
The Ram 2000 is a whirlpool product, and aprts are very hard to find. The Ram model is now considered a trash compactor vs an Oven. It may be time to let it go quite honestly. I know what your thinking...I'm the same way. Take care.

To start you need to replace the fan motor.
The fan motor is tested energizing (jumping wires and powering up). If the fan motor works, replace wiring harness after testing contacts on OEC (control).
Along with the fan motor you may need to replace temperature probe.
If the oven is reaching a too high temperature, and the knob is getting very hot, then the temperature probe may be shorted.
A shorted probe is difficult to test, because testing must be done at high temp, the probe will read normally at room (low impedance). The easiest thing to do is replacing it when the oven does not stop at limit temperature.
If the oven does not have all function, and does not bake, test also the heating element.
The lower element is the baking element.
The element is tested disconnecting its wiring, and touching with the multimeter probe its contacts.
If the element read no continuity (infinite Ohms because the circuit is open), then the element must be replaced.
If the Oven had been used at too high temperatures, check also the wiring harness, and the control contacts. Elevate temperature may damage wiring and connector.
To get the parts I would need the complete model number (the one in service tag).
I think this oven model type is APSF/02/WH , built by Wirlpool.
In that case here parts:Next Dimension APSFO/02/WH (854184015010) Parts.
