Indesit Single Electric Fan Oven - grating noise from cooling fan

Switch the oven on and everything's fine, ie oven circulating fan comes on and the oven starts heating. However, when the oven gets hot it starts making a grating noise and the oven circulating fan stops. We thought the problem was the internal oven fan but when we took the back off the oven it is clear that it was something to do with the cooling fan on top. If we were to replace this item (is this simple to do?) would this solve the problem, or is the problem likely to be something else which is causing this result?

Hope you can help?

    Mine doesn't make the grating noise. It simply cuts out in the middle of cooking. The screen goes blank, light inside goes out but a fan continues to operate, blowing heat out from the sides and above the door of the oven. Seems like a design fault. Any ideas what needs replacing and how to get to it? Thanks.

SOURCE: Convection/Conventional in same unit SC302ZS

If this oven works the same as the 302T, the bake element is not used during convection mode, only the convection element.
The cooling fan must come on
The air switch must close
The convection element must be good
I would suspect the element first.
Post back and let me know what you find out.

usually this is because you have the connecter on the touch pad off by a pin or not seated well. sometimes all it takes is taking the front touch panel off, re seating the connectors, and putting it back together. these thermadores are very sensitive to it for some reason. if all else fails, take all of the small multi pin wire connectors off one by one and re seat them. it should take care of the problem if it wasnt there before you started. good luck!

SOURCE: Thermadore SC272P door won't open after self cleaning need to replace the lock, but first you need to get the darn think open. I looked at it, couldn't figure out how, and left it. My 14 yr old starting looking at it (after the kids had their TV, Ipod, etc taken away from him for the weekend.....) and he took a coat hanger from the side to pull the latch open.
The rest is straightforward sheet metal disassembly except for the front panel...label the connectors with a piece of tape before you pull the cables connecting the front panel (unless you are able to read a schematic). You can buy the part from

Noise when oven running and stops when oven stops

Is it a convectional oven? If so, this is the fan turning on to circulate the heat. Being an electric oven, there really shouldn't be any noise whats so ever when on. I suspect your have a convectional oven and the fan is making the noise...either because it is working fine...or because its not and needs to be replaced.

Should the fan on my built in electric convection oven come on during normal 'bake' mode (ie not 'convect' mode ?

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.

Oven set to 350F, using type k thermocouple , omega, left reading 370F, right side reading 389F, noticed the cooling fan is not running, baking problems, too ho.

You will not get an even temperature if the circulating fan is not working.

You need to check the fan control circuit and find out why the fan is not coming on, possibly a failed switch relay?

Indesit FIE 56 K.B GB oven The circulation fan is squeeking

The symptons you describe are typical of the fan motor bearings failing. you could try spraying the bearings with WD40, but this would only be a temporary solution, in the end you will probably have to replace the fan motor complete.
Hope this helps.

Ge oven turns off by itself, and sometimes gives

F2 Oven temp exceeds 590 w/ unlocked door High resistance or interference in oven temperature sensor. Replace oven temperature sensor F2
Note: Also see fan thermal switches Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem. · Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.
· Look for electrical noise interference in the oven temperature sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone, etc.).

It is correct. The exhaust fan comes on to exhaust any heat.
The oven fan is for more even baking.

Zanuisi top oven making noise

Yes , there is a cooling fan located at the top of the oven
It could be the fan blades catching, or a noisy fan bearing.
You would have to access it by removing the top oven cover to check., and yes it could be as a result of having it cleaned.
Plz rate my solution.
