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.
This is a double electric wall oven. You set the temperature you want, but the heating never stops. It is both convect and coil, but the heating will not stop on either one at the desired set temperature. The other oven works correctly. Do I need a new thermostat or what?
You will want to do a resistance check on the oven probe 316217002. The resistance should be approximately 1090 ohms at room temp. If the probe does not read properly then you would want to replace the probe. If the probe checks ok then check the wiring for the probe back to the control board. If the wiring checks ok then replace the control board.
Where is the thermal switch PN318004900 located?
The thermal switch would be located on the back of the unit near the elements.
Hello,where is the thermal fuse located and how do I get to it.
The thermal fuses are located on the back of the unit. You will need to pull unit out and disconnect power. Remove the lower back panel and there will be 3 thermal fuses. You will want to check all of them for continuity. If no continuity then they are bad or push the red button to see if they have tripped.
