Fan Noise - Non Convection Oven - Wall Oven

Possible Solutions

Is the oven currently in use or has a cycle recently completed?

It is normal for all wall ovens to have an automatic cooling fan that runs when the oven is in use and/or after a cycle completes.

It is normal:

  • For the automatic cooling fan to run when the oven is in use and/or after the cycle completes.

  • To hear the automatic cooling fan move air when the oven is in use and/or cycle completes. 

The automatic cooling fan:

  • It helps to cool the enclosed oven cavity and the electronic controls when the oven is in use and/or after the cycle completes.

  • Keeps the electronic controls cool during every oven function such as BAKE, BROIL or CLEAN.

Note: In many wall ovens, if the oven door is left open to cool the oven, the cooling fan will not shut off.

It is not normal for the cooling fan:

  • To make a rubbing/metal-on-metal noise when operating.
