If we use our oven to bake something, even for 20 minutes. The fan will run for hours like it's trying to cool the oven down. If I open the door and put my hand inside the after about 20 minutes from turning the oven off it's barely warm. Why does the fan continue to run? Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi - if you still have your user manual I think you will find that oven have a time delay designed into the electronics for cool down purposes after the cycles completed. If it does shutdown after say 1.5hrs, it may seem a bit long but its actually doing what its designed to do, it should not be heating but circulating the hot air thru the oven.
We use to have a similar problem with our F & P BI600 wall oven - what we've done is have the door slightly ajar to quicken the cool down process until one day the fan ran continously - then I had it disconnected.
I hope this may help with your situation, if its running continously then its best to disconnect the cool down fan, the bake fan is normally on a separate circuit and not affected.
If you mean the oven fan that will turn off on control switch.I think you may be talking about the cooling fan.This is to cool the electrical panel on the top front of cooker. It comes on after the oven heats up and may stay running for 15 or 20 minutes after cooker is turned off it will turn off after the unit has cooled down sufficiently for the controller.
Hope I helped.
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.
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!
oven has two fans. the second fan is out of sight and cools the casing. it is operated by a seperate stat. not unusual for it to run for up tohalf hour after switching off. if it runs for an excessive time may be a fault nwith fan stat
