If there is 220 volts coming in but only 120 at the bake element and broil element and the over will not bake or broil, does that mean the control needs replaced?
Answer Hello Jim,
Most of the time this is correct, but there is always the possibility that there is another safety device in the circuit such as a thermal cutout. In this case the part number is 318005201. I believe it is located on the unit back near the temperature sensor. This is behind the main back panel. If this isn't the issue, the next most likely problem is the control 318185446.
Would replacing this help with oven/burner not heating up. oven was purchased in 2006 has worked since then. When I reset the breaker multiple times it beeps then when there is no beep during the reset, it works again. Very strange. Im wondering if there is a short in the controller.
Answer Hello Jeff. If the unit is getting 240 volts, and you can reset it and it work, then the control 318185448 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit. If it is not working properly, first check the voltage coming to the unit. If it is below 240 volts, and flipping the breaker on and off makes it work properly, then the issue is the breaker is bad and you will need to replace the breaker. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.

Would replacing this solve a f1 code?
Answer Hello Mike. Yes, based on the error code, you will need to replace the clock assembly 318185448. Hope this helps.
