Whirlpool oven GMC275PRS01 does not hold steady temperature.
I may vary 20+ degrees above and below set temp. ie....set to 350 degree and it may go to 370 and then go to 320 and start back up to 370 again. What control board effects this??
Answer Hello Leo. The main board W10438710 is the board that turns the element on and off based on the reading from the oven temp sensor W10131825. However, the temperature inside the unit should fluctuate above and below the setting on the board. You can take the upper and lower numbers and add them together and divide by 2 and you should have a number around the setting you programmed the board to.
After a lightning storm the control board is completely blank. Won't beep & nothing works. Breakers were checked & are on. Can an individual change this part themselves without having to call a serviceman?
Yes the control board can be replaced without having to call a service technician. Here are the instructions from the manufacture for the control board 8301848. Hope this helps. 1. Disconnect the electrical power to the double oven. 2. Open the lower oven door. 3. Remove the bottom screw from each of the two side trim pieces. 4. To remove the side trim, pull the bottom out approximately 2?, and slide the top down to free it from the control panel. 5. Remove the screws from the oven control panel. 6. To remove the oven control panel, pull it out at the bottom, and lift and unhook it from the oven cabinet support at the top. 7. Disconnect the wire connectors from the control board and set the panel face down on a padded surface to protect the finish. 8. To remove the thermal fuse, disconnect it from the main harness connector. 9. To remove the oven control/display boards: a) Remove the mounting screws. b) Lift the ends of the locking arm and disconnect the ribbon cable from its connector. NOTE: The control and display boards are designed to be replaced as an assembly. 10. To remove the touch panel assembly: a) Push the window and flat ribbon cable area out of the control panel so you can grasp the edge of the touch panel on the other side. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the oven control panel, use the following procedure 1. Reconnect the wiring to the control board terminals. 2. Hook the ends of the control panel over the rubber tips of the brackets. 3. Push the bottom of the control panel in and position the plastic air duct under the lip of the panel. 4. Align the mounting holes and install the two side screws in the control panel.
Hi there, pretty sure we need a new control board for our double oven. The display mysteriously stopped "displaying" mid May. It has very randomly beeped & come back on! We are able to start the oven cycle & set the clock but then it goes out again. I am searching for part #8301848; I believe this to be the part needed? Any help or insight to this issue.
Answer Rick, The 8301848 (8301848) the "sister board" wouldn't be the issue at this point. That board is associated with the self clean door latch assembly, and shouldn't have anything to do with the programming or display of the oven. You will want to check the control transformer 9760587 there should be 120 VAC across the red wires going into the transformer, and 12 to 20 VDC across the blue wires coming out of the transformer to the control board. If the transformer tests proper, if there are no loose connections or wires, then you'll need to replace the oven control board W10406070.
