How do you replace the thermostat on a wall unit?
Answer Hello leroy b. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
When "Oven Temp" selected and set, the "Bake" light illuminates and after a couple of seconds, the "On" light illuminates. Neither the top nor the bottom elements in the oven heat up, and no "clicking" sound is heard. For "Broil", the "Hi" light illuminates, the "clicking" sound is heard, and the top element heats rapidly. Is this a switch issue because the "clicking" sound is not heard? If it is, what is the part number and procedure for repair? Thanks!
Answer Dick, You most likely have a faulty relay on the ERC 7601P200-60 based on your post description (element not hot, and no clicking noise).
You do want to check the heating element for a "closed" circuit with a multimeter, and check the yellow wire from the ERC down to the bake element for damage.
My oven only has wires without the metal wire terminals, only the copper wires sticking out. Can I install the element without the terminals?
Answer Hello Annie, It would be necessary to install new wire terminals TJMA02875-1 to get a safe connection and then you can easily install the correct element for your model. Please provide your model number so we can determine which element is right for your oven. Thanks!
The bake element will not heat up. The temperature goes off and it beeps then shows F-3, F-7, F-2. What does this mean?
Answer Hello Sherry,
The error codes F-2 and F-3 are pointing to the temperature sensor 12001656 and control panel 12001603. The F-2 is a runaway temperature and the F-3 is an open temperature sensor. The F-7 is a bad (shorted) function key on the control panel. If you would like some illustrated instruction on this unit, post an e-mail address an we can send it to you. It cannot be posted in this format. The control panel 12001603 is discontinued and there is no satisfactory substitution listed.
