How loud is your Blue Star convection fan?

I love my Blue Star RNB. The only issue I have is that the convection fan is really loud. Not like background noise loud, but loud enough to be distracting. I don't know whether this is normal and before calling BS, I wanted to get feedback from BS owners first. How loud is yours?

This sounds abnormal. I have an RNB and the fan is not distracting. I need to look in the oven to see if it is running.

Agree with "mata". I have a 6 burner 36" RNB and I can hardly hear mine.

I called BS. They told me to first try to tighten the screws holding the fan cover on and to call back if still a problem. I tightened them and it sounds better but I definitely know it is running. Not that big a deal but maybe I will ask them to send someone out to check it.

Check to see if one or more of your oven racks is hitting against the fan shroud. This will cause a nasty vibration! Just pull the racks ever so slightly away from the fan cover and see if it goes away.

Out of level can most definately cause that too.

During my reno my bluestar was on a dolly and moved around a lot. It one point it was out of level and the fan was abnormally loud. After adjsting level it is back to normal. Mind you, mine is a 48", so there is probably more flex and twist in it than a 30 or even 36" would have. Worth a try tho.

Thanks ctydcm. I tried that but it is still pretty noisy.

Is it buzzing, vibrating or rattling or does it just sound like a fan? Mine sounds like a fan. I know it's when it is on, I can hear it. Sounds like a small fan inside my oven swirling the air around.

Use your phone or a camera to make a movie and post it somewhere. Since you can turn the fan on without turning on the heat stick the camera right up on in there.

No need to speculate!

The fan blades heat up and warp. That can cause the noise as well. You can remove the fan blades and re-align them .

Mine is very loud with occasional buzzing / vibration sounds. The service guy thought he fixed it by tightening the screws to the fan shroud.

I'll check out the location of the racks. It's still under warranty, so I should probably call it in (again).
