Your recent response to my last inquiry was as follows:
ANSWER Hello Malcolm, Based on the information provided you will want to check your sensor wires to make sure that they are not shorting out. If the sensor wires check ok then you would want to replace the control board. To check sensor wires you will check with sensor wires disconnected from board and from sensor. Check continuity through the wires. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I checked the wires for shorts as instructed - there were none. I then replaced the control board as instructed. Unfortunately, the oven is still behaving the same. It heats to set temp, beeps, then drops. Today we set it to 400degF to cook a pizza, and when we went to remove the pizza, we discovered the pizza was not completely cooked. When we reset the oven we discovered the temperature had dropped to 293degF (even though set to 400 degF). What else can possibly be wrong with this oven now that BOTH SENSOR AND OVEN CONTROL have been replaced.
ANSWER Hello Malcolm,
You will want to check to make sure that both elements are good. You can ohm out each element to check them. The Broild element should have a resistance of 16.4 ohms and the bake element should be 21.7 ohms. If they are not within range then the element is bad. If one of the elements is not within range it will cause temp to not be correct.
