Hi,

Firstly, you don't need to replace your fan simply because it's noisy. It may be sufficient just to grease the spindle/bearings.

The fan is located at the back of the oven and CANNOT be accessed from inside the oven. If you open the oven door, you will see a grille at the back of the oven compartment - basically just some slots and holes cut into the back panel. Behind this grille is the heating coil/element, then another panel, behind which is the fan/fan motor. Basically, the fan is right at the back, dead-centre of the unit.

To access the fan, you will need to remove the oven from the wall cabinet and remove the back panel. To do this, you first need to unplug the oven or, if it's hardwired, detach the cable from the outlet - power off please! Next, remove the retaining screws at the on both sides of the oven at the front - these are only revealed when the door is open. You should now be able to remove the oven from the wall cabinet by pulling it forwards gradually and feeding the power cable through as you do it. I suggest getting someone to help you lift it out as they are fairly heavy and awkward to hold/carry. Also wear some old clothes as the bottom of the unit can be quite greasy!

Put the oven somewhere safe where you can access the back of the oven easily. The fan is covered by a removable back panel. Undo the screws (about 10) around the edges of the panel and partially pull the panel away - taking care not to snag any of the wiring behind the panel. You will also need to remove the connectors to the main power cable to remove the panel fully. Make a note of the connections (or take a photo) to ensure you reconnect it correctly!

You should now have clear access to the fan. Inpsect it visually to see if the blades are broken and try spinning it by hand to identify where the noise is coming from. If the blades are sound apply some HMP grease around the spindle which rotates the fan. This can be quite tricky, so it might be easier to liberally apply some spray lube around the area. Spin the fan by hand a little to work the lube in.

Next, test the oven before putting it back into the wall cabinet. This can be done by replacing the back panel and plugging the oven into a socket or extension cable. If the oven was hardwired, attach a plug to the end of the cable. Turn the oven on at the minimum temperature and let it run for 5-10 minutes to allow the lubricant to work through. If the noise has diminished or gone, reinstall the oven in reverse order of the above. After refitting, I suggest running the oven empty on a low-mid temperature until the smell of lubricant has gone.

If the fan is damaged - or you can't get rid of the noise by lubricating it - then you will need to buy a new motor and fan blade. Fitting these is easy with the back panel removed as they simply bolt/screw onto the back panel of the oven and the wires just slide on and off. If possible, take some photos before removing the old fan/motor to ensure correct fitting of the new parts.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Hope this helps.

JTP15 GE Oven - vibration noise


We have a double ge wall oven. The vent fans had become really loud. I checked the price for new fans...$275 each! Plus service of $200. If your oven is not too old, go to GE service purchase a 1 year service contract for $93.00. Wait one one month till it takes effect. Call them and request service and the entire replacement is free.

Oven makes a noise when I turn it on.


If it is a fan assisted oven , then it sounds like a noisy oven fan.
It could be a worn or dry bearing in the fan motor. if you open the oven door , you should be able to tell if it is the fan by listening to it carefully.
The other possibility is if it has a cooling fan in the back or on the top of the oven, it could also be that causing the prob, these are about the only things that could be making a noise, as there are no other moving parts that could make a noise.
PLz rate my solution.

Thanks.

It sounds like this is a common occurance among GE ovens.
Shut off the power at the box, then remove faceplate then remove the keypad.
after doing so, remove it from connector, and clean pins with an eraser.
Make sure the terminals are clean of debris, and check for a reset button on the back of the keypad.
I hope this helped you out.
