GE Monogram Convection Fan Cycling Off/On
Model Number: ZDP48N6DHSS Brand:
More than 10 years
On "Convection Bake" the convection fan will run for 3 minutes, and then shut off for 9. I previously had one model earlier (and very similar, same operation buttons) of this unit (a ZDP48N4GWSS) and it would run the fan 100% of the time it was on convection.
I timed the cycling more than once and it goes on/off for exactly 3:05 and 9:20 respectively; thought it was extremely odd it would repeat this schedule so precisely, and that the "on" time is exactly 1/3 of the "off" time.
Skimming over the schematic I see a "50% pulser" but not sure if it's in use during convection or not, if so could that be bad?
EDIT: These times were at 400 degrees. I tried it this AM completely cool. Convection on but oven thermostat off, it ran for 5min+ without turning off. I set the oven at 250 and turned convection on once it came up to temp, again it ran for 5min+ before I stopped timing. So oven temp must be a factor.
