Broil element over heated and broke. Replaced broil element but it doesn't heat up.
Answer Hello Jocko,
You will need to look for the thermal switch 318004900 and, with the power off, try to reset the little red button in the center of it. This is a common occurrence and the reset button is a bit hard to mash. This unit will have to be pulled out, power turned off, and the main top removed so you can access the part.
The self cleaning fan is staying on continuously. Does this run off of a temperature probe?
The fan will work via the fan interrupter switch which is located on the latch assembly. If the switch is stuck it will cause the cooling fan to run all the time. This would require the latch motor 318095956 to be replaced as the switch is not a separate component.
How do I get to the thermal fuse to check it ?, and can I reset it with the red button? Both elements went out at the same time. controls work, convection fan works, bottom oven works.
In order to access the thermal fuse for the unit, you will need to remove the unit from installation. There is a reset button on the thermal fuse that you can push. If the fuse trips again or will not reset then would need to be replaced.
Both broil & bake elements stopped working in upper oven; suddenly and simultaneously. Perhaps thermal fuse? How do I find & check?
Answer Hello Pat. Remove the top panel and test the thermal switch 318004900 for continuity. Should read closed. If good, replace the control board.
Neither element fires up, I have checked and did not find any tripped breaker how do I test to see if thermal switch is bad or is it possible for all
thermal fuses to be tripped? Or what else can cause this problem?
You will want to test the thermal fuse for continuity. If there is no continuity then the thermal fuse is bad. You can also test at the control board with the unit set to bake, check from Bake to L2 and if there is 240 vac at this point then the control board is faulty.
