When checking the oven and broiler on a Kenmore ceramic top which side is L1 and L2?
Answer Hello Big Lou. Black off the terminal block is L1 and red is L2 in most cases.
This range top and clock work fine, but the oven nor the broiler will work. Does this sound like the oven control board?
Yes, this issue does sound like it could be a control board issue but you could test the unit by accessing the elements from the rear of the unit. Disconnect the power and take one wire off the bake element. Plug the unit back in and check for 120 volts on both wires that go to the element. If one side does not have power then check to make sure that the wiring is good and if it is on the L2 side then you will need to trace back to the terminal block. If the there is no power on the L1 side and the wiring checks ok then the control board is faulty and would need to be replaced.
I have the frigidaire FEF336ECC electric range model. The clock is working, and so are the lights. However, baking, broiling and the surface elements never heat up. There is obviously electricity otherwise the clock wouldn't display the time. How do I do about diagnosing the issue, and replacing the needed part?
This issue will be cause by an error on the L2 side of the circuit. The first place that you will want to check is at the terminal block. Check from each of the outer terminals to the center terminal for 120 vac. If one side does not have 120 vac then check at the power receptacle for 120 vac to neutral. If there is 120 vac to each leg then the power cord would be the issue. If there is only 1 leg that has 120 vac then there is a home electrical issue. If there is 120 vac on each leg of the terminal block then you will need to check your wiring in the unit.
My oven and broiler quit working. Everything else still works. I noticed main control for oven clock broiler makes a clicking noise. I checked elements they are good.
Based on the description it sounds like you will need to replace the clock on the unit. If you check from L1 to bake with unit on you should have 240 VAC and if not then the clock is bad.
