My range threw an F code and buzzed then the oven element came on all by itself and went to the maximum temperature. I turned off the breaker but if turned back on, the oven element comes on automatically. Everything else is working fine. Would this be a short in the board.
Answer Hello Garry,
This will be a stuck relay on the control board. You will need to verify the model number on the units' I.D. tag for us to be able to acquire the correct part number for the control for your unit. You can re-post with the correct model number or give us a call at 1-877-477-7278. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
is the relay board the part I need to make my oven work? my clock and temp. doesn't work either but my burners work.
Answer Diana, Yes, the relay board 74001870 could be, and probably is the issue. That would be the component to start with. It transforms and supplies the low AC and DC voltages to the ERC/Clock, to illuminate the display and operate the circuits in the Clock / ERC to operate the relays and apply power to the elements to heat.
If my Maytag range and oven quit working, except for the light in the oven, is it the relay control board that needs to be replaced.
It tried several times to come back on, but is blacked out now.
Answer Lori, You'll need to make sure you have 240 VAC at the outlet and at the terminal block on the back of the range. Flip the breakers at the breaker box for the range off and on several times. If you have the voltage at the terminal block of the range, you'll need to raise the cooktop and check the Relay board 7428P009-60 for damaged or shorted relays and wires.
I have a Kenmore slide in range,after element burnt out I replaced it.I have done this 3 times in the last 12 years.After replacing,broiler,cook top,fan,lights work but element will not heat please advise,cant afford new range at this time.
The most likely cause of the bake element not working after replacing it would be a faulty relay board. You can test the relay board from bake to L2. If there is 240 vac at this point then the board is faulty and would need to be replaced.
