We chose this to match our other appliances and based on experience This is our third Kitchen Aid wall oven. We had good luck with the first two, but this model is unacceptably noisy. The bottom oven is great as expected with the exception of the long cool-down fan (goes off quicker if you open the door), but the upper convection oven is just a bummer. The exhaust fan is very noisy when you turn it off, but the real problem is the convection fan in the back, which runs whether you're in convection mode or not. At times, the noise is sufficiently distracting that we leave the kitchen, a sad commentary on a $3000 oven.
We had the tech out to check it. He said the new ones do have the convection fan running all the time and … showed us in the manual where it says this. It seemed to behave for awhile, but once it reached full heat ((350 in this case), it went into agro noise mode. He fixed it by opening the door and pushing the closed button that turns the fan on and holding it for awhile -- letting out a lot of heat (and wasted electricity) into the room. He speculated that that the enclosed fan probably gets some kind of air pocket that makes it speed up and get noisy. I'd like to examine a refund, but it appears unlikely.See more See less
