Our techs at Western Appliance Repair in Boise completed an interesting service call today for a Whirlpool Oven.
These pictures show what disassembly is necessary to replace a bad cooling fan motor in a slide-in oven. The disassembly is quite severe to say the least. This is not a problem for us however. We can tackle a job like this one with ease.
When we arrived on site we ran a diagnostics program to confirm the blower was indeed not working. The blower was inoperable and when we actuated the control relays remotely we received no response. This suggests we may have a bad motor or, as we’ve seen in the past, a bad control board. In some cases the blower motor AND the main control board will need to be replaced due to compatibility issues. In this particular case however, the cooling fan was the only thing that was replaced.
After repair was completed and new fan installed, we ran a diagnostic program to verify proper fan operation. Our nice customer informed is that the oven has been working perfectly with no more error messages.
A job well done!
