GE Profile Wall Oven JF915S0F1SS --- Noisy Convection Fan
« on: December 27, 2012, 08:46:59 PM »

Bought a used wall oven that was in great shape. Works fine, except on the convection mode, the convection fan is very noisy. I hear both the air noise of the fan as well as vibration in thie unit.

Looked at the fan, and there may be a bit of runout (e.g. not exactly balanced) but other than that, looks OK. None of the fan blades bent or anything.

Is there a common fix? I could replace the fan rotor itself, or the entire fan+motor?

A service manual would help ... any pointers?

Thanks for any help. This site has kept a number of appliances from the dump, and appreciate all the professional help available here.

Thanks.


The model number is what I said (at least what the sticker says), but doesn't come up will on the sites.  Similar models:  JS915SF1SS ('no 'zero' in it) seems to be similar.

I'm leaning on what you said; maybe a bent fan shaft or something. The motor bearings didn't feel 'wobbly'.

Any lead on a service manual?

Ooos., misspelled;   JK915SF1SS is a similar model that seems to be represented on the Parts Sites...

Advice was correct. Replace the motor and fan, and everthing's quiet now.  Turns out the motor bearings were a bit loose... looks like the front bearing, and allowed enough of  a wobble to make the thing sing. Easy fix, but took a while for the parts.
