My JBP90 GE Profile convection oven had the same problem. The problem, in my case was caused by the door switch that controls the interior oven light. It also controls the convection fan and possibly the convection heating element.

1. DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!
CONFIRM POWER IS DISCONNECTED BY OBSERVING DISPLAY GOING DARK
In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer

9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!

Convection oven not working properly???


your correct the only difference between a regular oven and a convection oven is that it has a fan.when you open the oven door the fan should be spinning to a stop if this is not the case you may have a problem with the fan.

Fes367dsa fan runs while baking but it is not a convection oven


Chris Lindstrom,

I understand that you have a fan running while you are baking. This is a totally normal function of your applliance. A cooling fan may automatically turn on and off to cool internal parts. It is normal, and the fan may continue to run even after oven is turned off.

Frigidaire Gallery convection oven fan won't stop when door opens


Sounds like one or more microswithes have either gone bad or the plunger that actuates them is broken or mis alligned. You should be able to atleast the plunger on the cavity of the oven where the door would press it in. After locating the switches get a multimeter and check each one for continuity. You can go to www.apdepot.com for an illistrated breakdown. Make sure you write your brand and model number down because you'll need them.

This is the convection fan. My hearland range does this too, after power loss in the house. I cancel it by starting and then stopping convection mode. ie. hit convection (fan icon) start (running man) and then cancel (X).

The fan has stopped orking on my new world oven


I have no worked on a new world oven, but i will assume you speak of a convection oven.
Typically convection ovens have a door switch a motor and a run/start capacitor which helps the motor "turn over". I suggest, you have the oven cool, remove anything blocking the convection motor. Take your hand and spin the wheel, then while its spinning turn it on. You may have to try counter or clockwise. If you cant spin it at all, you have a bad motor, if the motor starts up with your manual assistance, the capacitor is bad. If there is not even a hum, a door switch is faulty, that or the motor has a thermal overload (usually a red button on the motor that needs resetting).

Convection oven fan is making noise as if hitting fan shroud on start-up and when door is opened.


Either the blades have moved out on the shaft or there is excessive shaft play allowing it to hit when there is not much pressure as during start up and when the door is opened.

I have a similar problem with my electric Frigidaire convection oven, which flashes ERR F9 and beeps after finishing a cleaning cycle; if you haven't had to have it repaired professionally by now you might try cutting the circuit breaker to the oven for a few seconds and then turning it back on. My oven takes a few minutes to reset, after the circuit is turned back on, but then will unlock the door and let me reset the clock and continue cooking as normal. . . until the next time I set the clean cycle.

Jenn-Air Gas-Electric Grill Ranfe with Convection Oven M# SVD48600


if possible, squat down in front of the range and put your ear as close to the bottom of the control panel/top of the door when you close it. there is a small motor that pulls the door in when you use the self-cleaning function. perhaps that motor is running all the time? its quite, more of a humm. this could explain why its locking itself. other than that, my convection oven JennAir has a small fan in the back that runs when the oven is on, regular or convections mode. you can see this fan squirel cage in the back wall of the oven. if you were to pull the range out, you will notice (atleast on mine) that there is another much smaller fan on the backside of the range behind the removable metal panel. what the smaller fan is for, i have no idea. so there are two fans, plus if you have the down draft feature, thats 3 total. hope this helps somehow.
