My kenmore single wall oven no longer heats up. The control panel shows no errors, and when I put on the convection oven button the fan will spin but none of the electric burners heat up. The red button on the thermal relay is in the up position. When using an ohm meter I am able to get a reading, When I push the button down there is no reading. In addition there are no signs of anything being "fried" in the back.
Answer Hello Joe,
The first thing that you will want to check since all 3 elements are not working is to make sure that you have not lost 1 side of your power supply. Check at the terminal block across the outer 2 terminals to make sure that the unit has 240 vac. If you have 240 vac then you will want to check at the board between L1 and L2 in. If you have 240 vac at this point then you will want to check from L2 to Broil, Bake and convection with unit powered on to make sure that you are getting 240 vac. If not then replace control. It sounds like you are loosing 1 side of your feed. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The oven stop to warm, no problem with the surface elements.
We can use the control panel for the setting or to lock the door, but the bake and broil have no effect.
The power at the entry is here for the 2 lines (120V).
The top and lower elements seems fine (resistance 0.016), and there are ne power wich arrive to them (I connected my tester at the place of the element, turn on and the broiler on High).
The temperature probe is fine, 1100ohms for 77degF, the associate switch too.
The thermostat safety switch (AP3214146 / 318003606) seems to be the problem, the meter indicated 1, there no continuity.
So I bought a new one, it's arrived very quickly (thanks guy for this), I checked it and no continuity too.... Is it normal ? it's on the fan circuit, so perhaps this fuse close when it's warm ?
The time to wait an answer, I will unmount all and check the power at the exit of the control panel.

Answer Hello Florian. You will need to test all the thermostat switches 318005202 and 318003606. If they are good, you will test for 240 volts going from the control to the elements. If the power is not there, you will need to replace the control board. 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
