Humming or Fan Noise - Gas Double Oven Ranges

Possible Solutions

Fan or humming noise from the oven:

The oven is equipped with 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.

Is the convection fan operating/running during both non-convection and convection cycles?

It is normal operation for the convection fan:

  • To operate during preheat for both non-convection and convection functions.
  • Turn off when the oven door is opened.

The convection fan will come on approximately five (5) minutes into an oven function on all Gas convection models:

  • During preheat or when a convection cycle is selected.
