How can I confirm if the oven part that has failed is the thermostat. I put in a new ignitor last month and everything worked fine. One day the igniter stop working and I replaced it again but the new igniter did not light up. Then I noticed that when the Thermostat dial is turned from off to a heat setting the red power light on the oven panel does not go on. I suspect that the igniter is not working because the thermostat has stopped working. Any way to confirm tha? FYI. I already order thermostat part Item Number: AP4275813 -- Manufacturer's Number: Y0087635 from you. Before I go ahead with installation I'm hoping you can provide some guidance.
ANSWER Paul, You're on track. First check and make sure the digital clock is working, and or the timer has not been set to the timed cook, by accident. The power to the thermostat is through the clock, if the clock is not in the "Manual" mode, the oven won't ignite or work. The next check will be to disconnect the wires from the igniter, attach your multi meter probes to the wires from the control(not the igniter) and select a bake temperature. If the clock is in the manual mode, and the thermostat switch is operative, you should read 120 VAC on the meter. Thanks
