broiler works but bake element doesn't. Replaced heat sensor and bake element. Turn unit to bake and 350 degrees and checked voltage at the bake element and I am getting 120 volts on each side of element.
You will need to access the control board and check voltage. You will want to test from L2 to bake with the unit set for bake. If there is 240 vac at this point then the control board is faulty and would need to be replaced.
How do I get the knobs off the old part and then how do I put them on the new part?
The knobs for the clock timer are attached to a shaft and they are just rubber knobs. When you pull the rear cover of the control panel off and take the clock out, the shafts for the knobs should be exposed and you can push the knobs out.
Our oven is burning our food and we get an F1 code. Other than that, the oven is running and the clock and timer work. Any suggestions on which part to replace?
The F1 error code indicates a runaway temperature. You will want to test the oven sensor for resistance. The resistance value should be 1090 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor does not have this resistance then you will need to replace the sensor. If the sensor checks ok then you will need to replace the oven control.
I set the oven to 400°F on convection bake. The convection fan turns on. After half an hour the temperature on the EOC reads 260°F. A reading from a thermometer inside the oven reads 226°F. There is an occasional tick-tock noise from the vicinity of the EOC. The oven will get no hotter. Suggestions?
Answer Hello Mike,
Of course the first check is to flip the breaker off then back on to insure one side hasn't tripped. The next step is to open the control panel and check for both legs at the terminal block. If these tests pass, check at the board on the bake terminal. Since you will read 120Vac there regardless, if you turn the power off and dis-connect this wire, make sure the wire cannot touch any thing and turn the power back on. test from ground to the terminal on the control. This should read 120Vac. Now test to the wire. It should also read 120Vac, (the other leg of voltage). If the terminal on the clock reads no voltage, the issue is the relay on the clock 318010102. If the voltage is there but not on the wire, the issue is either the element 318255605 or the high temperature cutout 318003600.
I replace the controller board (I just got from you guys) but neither the broil or the bake element work.
Answer Hello Arvind. You need to test and see if the safety thermostat 318003600 is good on the unit and is reading closed for continuity. If it is open, you will need to replace the thermostat.
