The broiler element goes on when I turn the oven on. Also goes into a F10 code. Thanks, Gerry
Answer Hello Gerry. Based on the information you provided, first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor. It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that checks good, then your control board is the problem. 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 replace the oven control 316557118 and everything works, but oven seems to heat higher than set point. Is there a calibration procedure for the oven control? I seem to remember something about it in the instructions with the control, but have misplaced that paperwork.
Answer Tn tuttle,
Here is the way to do an oven calibration for your unit.
* Press and hold Bake (upper oven or lower oven depending on model) for 10 seconds.
* The current calibration offset (temperature adjustment) should appear in the temperature display.
* Use the number keys (Up and Down arrows depending on model) to enter the desired amount of adjustment.
(Up to 35° and down to -35°)
* Press Self Clean to change the sign of the adjustment to a (-) if necessary. A positive adjustment will not display a
* Once the desired adjustment (-35° to 35°f) has been entered, press the Start pad to accept the change or the Cancel
key pad to reject the change.
**On some models: to calibrate oven temperature, press Bake. Set temperature to 550°. Press and hold Bake
for 10 seconds.**
Replaced control panel ,which was burnt ,the plug that has the bake to element is stuck. I found that I have a bad connection inside the plug as my oven wont heat up. I cannot see any snap or plug release. How do I get plug off without damage to the new panel. Control panel # is 316557118
The wire for the bake should be a single wire with a spade connector. If you are having trouble getting this off you can use the edge of a flat blade screw driver and gently pry it off. If it is one of the white connectors there would be a clip on the side that you push to release.
Hello, my oven has stopped heating up, burners on top still work fine. Took out elements, top and bottom, and probe ,had them tested everything fine w/ them. I read that it could be my oven control board, is this something I could do my self?
Yes, you can replace the oven control board. You will want to do a voltage check on the control board to make sure that it is bad. If you put the oven in bake and test for 240 vac from L1 to Bake, if there is 240 vac then the control is bad and if there is not then there is another issue such as a possible bad thermal fuse or thermal switch.
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.
