I had to replace the bake element after it fused itself to the wall of the oven in what can only be described as a "thermal event". More like an arc weld, but you get the idea. (10 years old at this point). I ordered the new part, replaced it, and it fires right up and is solid. Now we put some banana bread in and set it to 350f. After about 10 minutes I smell burning. I open the door and the bake element is red hot- and the oven feels like it's 500f. I turned it off, let it cool, and retried at a lower temp. All was well. 2 or 3 times later, same symptom- set the preheat, walk away, and it's insanely hot. I metered the temp sensor at 1083ohms. Do I have a bad board?
Answer Jeff, It's highly likely, When the element shorted, the voltage spike could have damaged the internal contacts of the bake relay, The warped or weakened contacts could cause the oven to overheat.
When pushing the increase baking temp button, the temp only decreases. Cannot get temp to increase on the panel.
Answer Hello Rachel. The part you need to replace, 4451339, has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part. You can try removing the ribbon cable from the control board and cleaning it with a pencil eraser and some rubbing alcohol to see if that fixes it.
Oven goes into Lock after reaching about 300 and indicates error code E2 F3. Do you think this is the control board? If so, is replacing the control board in a RBS245 similar to the instructions I see listed for the RBS305? Remove screws at bottom, remove trim, remove board keeping track of harnesses?
Answer Hello Richard,
The procedures will be the same in these two models. The difference here is the internal circuitry and the features on the display. The E2-F3 is the fault code for the oven temperature too high (over 575° in cook mode). 1. Check sensor connection. 2. Measure sensor resistance (1080O at [70°F]; add 2O per degree). If resistance is not valid, replace sensor. 3. If sensor resistance and connections are good, then the oven cavity temperature must have exceeded a safe level. Check for welded-closed relays on the control.
Hello Nick. if the sensor is reading 850 at room temp, it is bad. However, it does not make the board turn off. It sounds like the control board and the sensor will need to be replaced on the unit. You can test L1 on the board and see if there is 120 volts AC there. If so, board is bad.
Thanks for the answer. I checked L1, L2, N, and E. All of them are 120V. The normal is 240V, right? Do I need to check the suppressor and how to check it? Thanks
Answer Hello Nick. No, L1 And L2 should be 120 volts. However, if you test across L1 and L2, then it becomes 240 volts.
