How do I test the oven sensor at 350 deg? Do I remove it and place it in a 350 deg oven with leads sticking out of the door seal?
Answer Hello George. The way to test the sensor is to pull out the wall oven and remove the back panel. Then preheat the oven to 350°. Next turn off the oven, and unplug the sensor and test it. This is the best way to test the sensor W10131825. 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
When the oven is turned on I hear a strange, almost gurgling sound, from the oven and then it immediately pops the breaker. Any ideas on the problem?
Answer Ken, You most likely have a shorted bake element or wire to the element. You'll need to remove the door and oven racks. Turn off the power to the oven, and remove the two screws that mount the bake element to the oven back wall, and slowly draw it out of the wall towards you. Check the element and visible porton of the wiring for discoloration and damage. Thanks
Oven not heating goes thru preheat but never heats up. Tested Heating element and Thermo fuse (TOD) both good. Even replaced the Electronic Control Board, but still no heat. I did test the temperature sensor and didn't have continuity. Can the Sensor cause no heat??? Thanks
Answer Mike, An open circuit on an oven temp. sensor, usually produces an F1 or F3 error code in the oven control display. But a sensor could cause a no heat situation. You ought to check for 240 VAC across the two wires that attach to the bake element, when a bake cycle and temperature are selected, or program a broil cycle and check the broil element for a red glow after a few minutes. You'll have a better idea of which direction to go. Good Luck and Thanks
