Jenn-Air Oven Fan Won’t Turn Off — How To Fix

Below, we have listed the possible reasons why your Jenn-Air oven fan won’t turn off and what to do about them.

1. High Limit Thermostat

The high limit thermostat tells the oven fan when to turn on. If the thermostat fails, it will keep telling the fan to stay on even when the oven is completely cool. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to test and replace your Jenn-Air oven high limit thermostat…

Step 1: To avoid the risk of electrocution, disconnect the power to the oven. Do this by switching off the circuit breaker.

Step 2: If your oven is installed to a cabinet, it should be uninstalled. To do this, first open the oven door.

Step 3: There are screws on the sides of the oven’s front frame. Take out the screws using a Philips head screwdriver.

Step 4: Lift the oven out of the cabinet.

Step 5: Go to the rear of the oven.

Step 6: Using the same Philips head screwdriver, take out the screws which hold the access panel in place.

Step 7: Set the access panel aside.

Step 8: The high limit thermostat is on the upper rear. Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the high limit thermostat.

Step 9: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the lowest ohms setting.

Step 10: Touch the probes of the multimeter to the thermostat’s terminals. If the high limit thermostat doesn’t have continuity, it is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 11: Take out the screws which hold the high limit thermostat to the oven.

Step 12: Remove the high limit thermostat and get a replacement.

Step 13: Screw the new high limit thermostat to the oven’s rear.

Step 14: Connect the wires to the high limit thermostat.

Step 15: Reposition the oven’s back panel and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 16: Lift the oven back into the cabinet.

Step 17: Return the Philips head screws which hold the oven to the cabinet.

Step 18: Shut the oven door.

Step 19: Switch the oven’s circuit breaker back on.

2. Control Board

If the high limit thermostat is not faulty but your Jenn-Air oven fan won’t turn off, the control board is most likely faulty. The control board sends voltage to the fan. Once the oven cools down, the thermostat won’t send a signal to the board to keep sending voltage to the fan. If the control board fails, it will still send voltage even after receiving the signal.
