We have a double oven and it will not come on. We have checked the fuses and the burners all check out ok. The interior light comes on so why won't the oven come on? The panel is electronic not the dial type controls.

Beth for Model Number RBD245PDB8

ANSWER Hello Beth. First thing to do is turn off the breaker for 10 minutes. Sometimes an electronic controls' microprocessor will come to a point of stalemate. In other words, it needs to be rebooted. This doesn't always do it but about 30% of the time it does. Once this is done, if the issue still exists, I would drop the control panel and unplug the ribbon cable.Now, using a pencil eraser in the direction of the traces, erase across the connections. It is important to go in the same direction as the traces to prevent damage to them. Reconnect the ribbon cable and hook the panel back to the units' front and power it back up. If this corrects the issue, your ready to bake. If not, you're probably looking at replacing the thermal fuse 4451354. You can check to see if there's power getting to the control first. If there is power getting to the control, the control 8302967 has failed. If there isn't power getting to the control, it's the thermal fuse. Now to answer the question that's probably burning in your mind. If the thermal fuse is blown, how can the interior light come on? You see, we're dealing with a 240Vac unit. If the one 120Vac leg is open, there's still another 120Vac leg available. I hope this information aides in your repair. Have a great day!
