I have an Amana Freestanding Electric Convection Range (Glass Top) M#ARTC7522CC, S#0012142291, Mfg #P1143817NCC. Yesterday I turned on my oven

on the convection setting and the convection fan did not come on. So I switched the rocker switch to the standard position and did my cooking as usual. Now, today I turned the rocker switch back to convection and turned the oven on and now the convection motor came on. Now the big problem is when I turn the oven off the convection fan now continues to stay on. The only way to get the convection fan to turn off is to switch my rocker switch back into the standard position. I've checked the wiring to the rocker switch and the convection fan and everything looks good. Do you think it is the control board (part #Y0315570), its coming up NLA or could it be something else? Please advise.

The wiring diagram shown above indicates that the fan will run whenever the switch is in the "on" position no matter whether the oven is on or not. If the switch for the fan is in the "off" position and the fan still runs then that switch is apparently bad and will need to be replaced. I do not see any other interlock switches in that circuit that will shut off the fan when the oven is off.

I'm confused with your response. You state the fan should be running consistantly when the switch is on, but is it still suppose to run even when the oven has been turned off? It never did before. The issue I have is the fan is running 24/7 even tho the oven has been turned off. I don't believe that is the correct operating procedure. Please advise?

The wiring diagram for that range is shown in the image below. The circuit for the convection fan is traced in green. According to that wiring diagram, the fan should run constantly when that switch is on. Opening the oven door will not shut off the fan motor. According to your description, that fan is working normally at this time. You could have an intermittent problem with that switch or the wiring in that circuit. I recommend that you

unplug the range

and check those issues if the fan stops working again.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
