Greetings everyone:

A very frustrated KitchenAid owner of a 5 yr old fridge and oven:
1) My KA fridge is dead - waiting for mother board - Jake on the Fridge board has been kind, indicated this is a systemic fault in the model
2) My KA stove - oven is dead - fan broke - waiting for mother board. The fan was very noisy for 2 weeks, then stopped and entire oven would not turn on
Model YKSEG700ESS1 Serial R63210331

So, I am using an old beer fridge in the basement and a toaster oven - but $8,000 of KA appliances is sitting useless other than the stove top. I am very mad.

Q - Does anyone know if the fan in this model of stove is a systemic issue, or is it a random thing?

I would appreciate guidance here. Have been waiting months for motherboard/fan parts etc - this is totally nuts.

Thanks to all.

On the control board the convection fan motor runs from the P5-3(orange wire) connection to the white wire(neutral) you can check to see if you get 120 volts to it while you have the oven on convection bake. Just make sure you don't touch anything else while testing for 120 volts with the power on.

Here's your wiring diagram:

Hi there dear, outstanding Jake!!!!!!!!
Hope you and your family remain well and looking forward to spring and summer.
Apologies for the delayed response, now dealing with mold in the house! Sigh.
It is true, trouble comes in 3"s!

On your advice above, where are we supposed to access the control board?

I asked because it was the physical fan in the back of the oven that made much noise while running for many weeks, then it just stopped. Thereafter, when hitting the oven icon, we got an error message and the oven would not turn on.

So I wonder - it is not the fan more than the control panel?

Jake, your thoughts dearest sir.

Thanks and hugs!

Thanks, same to you.:)

Yes, then its likely that convection fan motor that has gone out.

Here's the convection fan motor for your model:

This video shows you how to access/replace it(disconnect power to your range first):

Hi there Jake!

My oven is now working and nice and quiet. I was a motor at the top of the oven on the left side, just behind the dials.
Jake, our technician, did not touch the fan at the back of the oven.
So pleased.
My 2nd great Jake (after you) advised me to contact KitchenAid Canada and ask for reimbursement because he sees much of this issue - meaning it is a systemic issue.
I showed my Jake, your posts and he is most impressed indeed and thankful for your care of us consumers!

Dear Jake, blessings to you and your family and this great public service blog.

Ok, so that would be the cooling fan motor that was the culprit, thanks for letting us know that.(y)

For others following your thread, here is the cooling fan motor for your model:
