Question about Frigidaire GLEF378 Electric Kitchen Range

Convection fan does not turn off when door opens

Whenever I use to open the oven door on my Frigidaire range during convection baking, the fan would shut off. All of a sudden it no longer does that. Should I be concerned? What would cause this? (the model number may not be correct) Thanks for any help.

    It is true that when I open the door, if I push in the door switch the fan will resume at its higher speed but with the latch out/door open, the fan only slows slightly.

Will a plain fan convection/microwave ROAST/BAKE as well as a "true" convection that has an extra heating element and fan convection/microwave


Most likely the Kenmore is actually made by Sharp. Most of the combination microwave/convection ovens are. I have one with a "Wolf" name on it, and it roasts/bakes very well.

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.

-Best Regards-

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.

How do I use this oven? Is it working correctly?


It would seem that the oven is small enough that a fan to flow the heat from the unit would be in use for both convection and bake modes. Usually convection ovens will have a "burst" of fan action during the bake process and it is not a steady fanning of the air that would dry out your cookies, ect. I have a small oven / microwave and my larger oven is a GE that has the "burst" convection that I described. Might not be that much help, but it's hard without more info on your unit. sometimes the model is behind the oven door.
