convection fan won't turn on after we heard a grinding sound then fan stopped. I bought/installed a new fan assembly but still won't turn on at all. Assuming a bad relay, but not sure where it is. Do I need to just replace the entire front electrical panel? And if so, is this something a pretty handy person can do himself?
Answer Michael, The model number indicates this is a "gas" slide in range. The convection fan will not operate for the first five(5) to seven(7) minutes or whenever the oven door is opened. You'll need to check for voltage to the fan motor on the blue wire, 10 minutes into a convection bake cycle. The ignition gasses and the heat have to equalize, before the fan can start and run. If there's no voltage, you'll need to check the wires from the control board to the fan motor, then replace the control board 5760M308-60, if all's OK. Yes, "a pretty handy person" with basic skills and tools will be able to replace the control.
Do I take the screws off under the clock first, then take the screws from behind the knobs next? Regards Robert
Answer Hello Robert. You should only need to remove the screws under the clock. The switches chould come off with the control panel assembly. Hope this helps.
