Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

The display control board is what controls the fan. It uses the temperature input of the temp sensor inside the oven as well. Remove the 3-6" long oven sensor mounted inside the oven to the back wall with 2 screws. Test resistance through the sensor and it should be around 1080 ohms at room temperature. If not, replace the sensor. If it way out of range (more than 10%) then replace the sensor. Other than that, replace the display board which is part number###-##-####
