My top oven quit working. The stove is not that old.
Could it be the element? The bottom oven is working but not the top. How long do elements typically last?
ANSWER Hi Vicky. Remove all power to your unit. Remove the back. Unplug one wire on the broil element. Use the ohm meter and see if your element has resistance of 18-40 ohms. If it is open then replace it with part # 316415900. If Your control board/ clock does not send the 240vac to the element, then possibly a relay on the board is faulty. Replace it with part # 316418704.http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
