During the self clean cycle the oven went blank, I removed the thermostat, part number ap3086326, and jumped it out. The panel display lit up and the oven door unlocked. I checked the thermostat part num ap3086326 for continuity. It had zero continuity. I am assuming that this part is bad. My question is, is it supposed to be open with no continuity or closed with continuity?
ANSWER Hello Joe. The thermostat 8300802 should read closed for continuity. If it is open, you will need to replace the thermostat. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
