My control panel still works (displays time and temperature), however there is not power to the oven (no heat regardless of temperature that is set on control panel). The stove top elements all still work as well. Could the part 318120711 (thermal fuse) be the reason that the oven is not working? Thanks
Answer Hello Pat,
Begin by verifying 240Vac at the wall outlet, (assuming this is not a gas bake compartment). Then you should check all connections in the oven beginning at the terminal block, (where the power cord connects in the back of the unit). You can also check for voltage out to the connection for the bake and/or broil elements. Remember that there is two legs of 120Vac and it is much easier to troubleshoot for a lost leg with the circuit broken, (disconnect the output wire from the control to the element). This will enable you to backtrack either leg that is lost. We could go into detail with the model number from the units' I.D. tag. The thermal fuse could be the issue but reference to the wiring diagram would show us if this model has one in the wiring configuration.
Control board lights up and setting temperature works but elements don't heat on bake or broil or convect. Could the board still be bad even though the digital display lights work or the thermal overload sensor is bad, what do you think ?
Answer Mike , Yes, it is possible for a control 316272208 to be programmed but not supply power to the elements. Both power legs (L1 and L2) enter the control and are distributed to the elements. If the L2 relay on the control has failed there will be no L2 power to the elements and they wont heat, but the L1 power will allow the control to be programmed and display properly. The thermal overload sensor will produce the same results if it is "open" as well. You'll need to check and make sure you have 220-240 VAC at the terminal block on the range, then check the L1 and L2 voltage on the wires to the elements, and trace back to the control from there.
