My oven suddenly stopped working over the weekend. The stove top surface still works. But the clock, timer, oven, broiler do not come on.
Answer Hello Doris. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the control board is bad on the unit and will need to be replaced on the unit. If there is power to the control board and it does not come on, it is 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

Answer Hello Tim. Yes, based on the information you provided, you will need to replace the clock 316207511 on the unit.
I have a Kenmore Pro refridgerator that is about 3-4 years old. Recently the lights in the fridge went off. I replaced the blub but now the lights will only turn on in the fridge if I open the freezer door too. What is wrong and how can I fix it?
Answer Hi. Shut the control that has the " off " label. Remove the power. Carefully use a plastic putty knife to to pry out the fresh food light switch part # 240505801. Then you jumper the wires together momentarily to see if the light comes on. IF it does then you know the switch feed wires are good and the light bulb is OK. If the switch plunger sticks shut when the door is open, then replace it. You can also test the same for the freezer door switch part # 241547901. Testing momentarily with the power off and on. Do not turn the unit control back on until you are done diagnosing as this will allow the compressor to start back up one time. This way you still have power to test but you are not starting the comp. and having to short cycle the compressor over and over. Thank You.
Is it very complicated to install a contol panel to the above oven?
Answer Hello Shelly,
Pull the unit out from the wall and unplug it. Then remove the six screws holding the panel on at the top behind the control panel. At this point, I recommend to take a few pictures from different angles with your cell phone for reassembly reference. Remove the four screws holding the clock assembly in. Remove the four knobs and the two screws from behind each that secure the infinite switches in place. There should be a couple of little indicator lights for the surface. These slide off of the lens. Removal of any wires is completely unnecessary as the components can simply hang from the wires while the panel is being changed. The only exception to this is the rocker switch as it has to be removed from the front of the panel, so the wires must be removed from it. Remove the screws in the front and rear of each end of the panel which hold the end caps on.
Be sure to keep up with all of the parts and if necessary, place them in order so you can reassemble in the reverse order.
