Magic chef oven not working, Digital control display not working, burners work.
Unfortunately this issue would be caused by a faulty clock assembly. The clock assembly 12001603 has been discontinued by the manufacturer with no replacement available.
A surface element is dead and I get a F-5 code reading . Will it be sufficient to replace the burner element will I also have to replace the clock assembly?
Answer Hi Claude. F5 Watchdog and hardware conflict Replace clock (ERC). Part # 12001603. Ohm out the bake element part # 74003019 and make sure it is not open (INfinity) Or shorted to chassis ground (one terminal at a time). Thank You.
I just in stalled the new clock assembly as recommended, unfortunately I have the same results.
Any other ideas on what the problem could be.
Answer Hello Brian. Test the high limit 7403P160-60 and make sure it reads closed for continuity. Also, test the element, with the wires unhooked from the element, and make sure it reads closed for continuity. If both the high limit and element are good, you will need to look for a wiring problem in the range. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Is the clock/keypad part # 12001603 difficult to put in myself?
Answer Hello Sarah! To replace the clock 12001603 you will need to remove the control panel and all wiring going to the clock. Remove the screws that mount the clock to the panel. Keep track of which wire goes where so the new clock does not get wired wrong. Install in reverse order. Be sure to remove all power to the unit before repairing this part. Hope this helps!
