My oven only heats to about 230 and I cant run it any higher.
Do I need a sensor or control board?
Answer Hello Leonard W.. You will need to check the elements and make sure they are good in the unit. It sounds like one is bad. If both are good, 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. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I my oven stop working inotice a part burned. Part #316429301 and replace with a new one. The oven still not working what can be the problem
Answer Noel, Are you sure there is 220-240 VAC at the wall outlet ? Do the cooktop burners operate ? If there's voltage or the top burners work, then yes your next check would most likely be an issue in the control 316557118
How hard is it to replace the clock/timer on this oven?
Answer Hello Tom. It is easy to replace the clock 316557118 in this model. You will disconnect the power and pull out the unit. Then remove the back cover off the control panel.
Kenmore stove, oven not working and clock stop working, blank screen!!! However, eyes are working!!!
Answer Hi Darryl, most likely your oven control 316557118 has failed. The top elements are control by your infinite switches so they were not affected. Thanks!
The wire running from the control panel to the back element is burned right at the control panel. What would cause this and can I just replace the control panel?
Answer Hello Matt,
Excessive current flow is what caused the wire to burn. You need to use a test meter to insure the wire isn't shorted to ground. If it isn't, check the component that the wire attaches to or a bad part. If it was shorted, it could be open now and also in need of replacement. As far as the control replacement goes, you need to determine what the terminal powers and the voltage which should be supplied from it and test to be sure it is supplying the proper voltage or return resistance. If it is operating properly, the terminal can be sanded to expose shiny metal and the spade connector on the end of the wire replaced and used as is.
