this is a slide in electric. The lower element blew (as it had a few years ago). I replaced it and it did not heat. I called a repair man and he measured the voltage at the element as only 35volts and told me that the clock would be the problem. The clock is not available but is rebuildable so I after he left I pulled the stove top and discovered another board called the relay board part number 4094554. Is this the most likely problem? Or could it be the clock (everything else, including the clock display works)?
Answer Kirk, You would be better served to test or replace the relay board 74001870 first. It's more likely to have failed than the ERC/Clock. When the element failed, it caused a voltage spike on the circuit, and probably damaged the relay contacts on the board. Disconnect the yellow wire from the BA terminal and the purple wire from the BR terminal on the board. Select bake and a temperature and check for 120 VAC from the BA terminal to chassis ground. Repeat the process for the broil selection. You also need to check the L1 and L1b terminals for 120 VAC to chassis ground, Tghis will verify proper voltage to the relay board from the house power supply.
The bottom baking element burned out and I replaced it. Prior to changing the baking element the broiler element was working fine. Now neither elements are working since I changed the bottom element. What is your suggestion on how to fix my problem?
Answer Charles, Without a model number, we can't check the wiring diagram and circuitry. But on a range of this age and make, you'll need to make sure that the L2 power wire to the elenments did not get damaged, or broken, when the element shorted out. Then move on to the relay board, and see if you have 120 VAC out of the board to the element, when bake or brouils is selected.
The clock face on my range does not work any longer.
The range top elements work fine.
The oven also works but I cannot see the temp I am setting.
It seems the oven functions properly with the exception of the display not working.
Do you think this is a clock problem or relay board issue?
Answer Hello Joe. The clock assembly is bad and will need to be replaced. This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part. Customer Must Contact Corecentric Solutions, Inc.

How diificult is it to install AP4094554 control board on this unit? Do I need any special tools? Are there easily accessible screws on the face of the unit to remove and are there simply slide connectors to easily disconnect and reconnect to new board?
Answer Hi Sam. Remove the power. Then all the top elements. Then use a putty knife to release the 2- front clips on the top of the control panel at the front of the top. Use the prop rod to support the top once opened. Then it will be located in the center back of the unit. Follow the wiring diagram supplied in the frame below after removing the drawer. It also can be behind the control panel. Mark the wires before removal and just exchange one wire at a time. This will help as with taking a picture with your cell phone. It is part # 74001870. Thank You.
Clock was not coming on. Face of the clock broke could not adjust temp. Oven started beeping like it was telling you what you had in oven was done. Pushed the clear button 4 or 5 times to make it stop everything went off. Ordered new clock for oven from you guys. Put it in and nothing, almost as it is not getting any current to it would it be the board relay or something else ?
Answer Hi James. Are you getting the correct 240 vac to the back of the terminal block with 120 vac to the neutral from each outer leg of L-1 and L-2 ? Verify this first as you may need a electrician to help. Then , check to see if the connector pins are matched correctly. Did you find the wiring diagram behind the control assy. or after pulling the drawer out and looking to the inside frame area ? Are you able to select a command and set temperatures correctly ? If so, then there is a relay board that closes a relay to send the 120 vac to each element. It is part # 74001870. Thank You.
