My wife was baking a pot roast in the radarange (convection mode) when it went dead, no lights or anything.  I checked the receptacle and circuit breakers, no problem.  We were on hold, waiting to talk to Amana customer service when all of a sudden it turned back on.  I am guessing that there is some kind of thermal shutdown and that the oven must have overheated.  I have looked through the manual and on the internet, but I have not found any information regarding this.  I was wondering if there was any experience out there with any of you.  We have Model AMV6167BDS.

Sorry to hear that, been there done that!

We originally had the Amana convection microwave, and it started to do exactly the same thing.
Then it kept shutting the recirculating fan off, but leaving the convection heater on, so the whole side of the microwave glowed red on the inside.  Blued the stainless inner shell.  I phoned them up and complained, said it was dangerous.
They said they'd fix it, but I still moaned and fussed, said it didn't look like a new unit anymore.  Turned out the model we had was obsolete, so they couldn't fix it.
We negotiated an exchange for a Mytag MMV 6180 WS (note Whirlpool owns Amana and Maytag and gave us options for either Whirlpool or Maytag as replacement).  The service guys came in and installed the Maytag but in doing so, butchered the overhead cabinet - the new supporting screws didn't go through the cabinet floor cross braces.  I told them it looked fine, just to get rid of them, then and after they left I uninstalled the unit and reworked the cabinet to install new supporting cross braces, to where I felt it was OK.

Works wonderfully now.  Done about 4,000 miles since then and still hasn't moved.

fulltimer5er, no I don't think we have any rumbling sounds in convection mode.
I don't think the turntable moves in convection, so my first thought would be a bad bearing or out of balance on the fan.
I'll have to stand in the kitchen next time the boss uses it and listen.
Note I usually get kicked out at that time, so I'll have to ask for special permission.
Have to move tomorrow, so it won't be until we settle, and that might be a couple of days.
If the boss remembers and confirms no odd noises, I'll post back before then.

Had the repair guy out it turns out the confection fan on the left side is belt driven and the plate the fan is mounted on has a bad bearing so parts on ordered thanks. Jim

Hi All, I'm not trying to highjack the thread, but since its about Amana MICR/CONVECTION ovens does anyone out there know where I could get those little brown plastic clips that hold up the grated platform?
Thanks,

We have the same model Cameo and convection oven as you do.  What are "brown plastic clips"? and what is the "grated platform"?  Our micro/convec oven has 2 white holders on each side that hold a stainless steel rack (like a regular oven rack) for convection cooking.

We're talking the same things I just used different words. My clips are brown instead of white and they do hold up the stainless grill. My clips are very loose and its just a matter of time before they fall out. Was hoping to find the before it happens.
Thanks,
Bob
