Best way to access the relay board. Front, back, or top of the oven?
The best way to access the relay board is to try to go through the control panel but if you cannot access that way then from the top.
I have a double oven. Daughter loves to bake some time we use both but mainly one and rotate top and bottom. Started with the oven taking forever to get to set temp. Then the top oven quit heating when I was making dinner. Bottom still worked. week later while daughter making cookies the bottom quit. You can turn it on both bake and broil it says pre heat like normal but nothing happens. no heat on either setting. its like 10 years old never had to anything with it. Thank you
Answer Hello Rose,
You will want to check to make sure that the thermal switches have not tripped. The thermals would be located on the back of the unit by where the terminals are for the bake and broil. Check continuity of the switches and if there is no continuity then push red button, release and check continiuty. If still no continuity then the thermals are bad and need replaced. If they check good you will also want to do a resistance check on the oven sensors. They should read about 1090 ohms. If they do not read this at room temp then you will need to replace the sensors. You will also want to check voltage to the elements. With unit in bake mode you should have 240 vac to the elements. If no power then the control is bad and if there is power then the elements are bad. 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 drying cycles do not end. If left to run, the drying cycle runs forever. Switch does not shut dryer off.
Answer Hello Joe,
If there is a timer on the unit then this sounds like a timer issue. Power not cutting to the motor on the timer.
Top oven works fine but the bottom oven nothing. Works but convection fan does start up. Both circuit boards have been replaced 7 years ago and all was fine till now. Does the bottom circuit board need to be replaced again?
Answer Hello Ralph,
You may want to check your lower oven thermal fuse for continuity. If the thermal fails the lower oven will not work. Also check for voltage at the relay board to make sure that you are getting power to the board and out of the board. If you are not getting power out of board but have power to board then you would have a bad relay board.
Top Oven: Bake only gets to 135deg preheat, element does not get cherry red. Top Broil: element does not get cherry red.
Bottom Oven: Bake gets to temperature but element does not get cherry red. Bottom Broil element gets cherry red.
What do I need for the top overn?
Answer John, Your best approach would be to check the voltage across the elements in both the bake and broil selections in both ovens, and track the issue back from there. You'd need to be very carefull conducting these voltage tests. If the voltage is not correct, you'll need to lower the oven control panel, to access and check the oven relay boards 318022001and 318022002 as well as the wiring behind the control panel.
