We are trying to replace our Control Board. It appears that some of the electrical connections are just "plug-in" and some appear to be soldered. Could you confirm my understanding here? If the ones appearing to be soldered are NOT soldered, then how are they disconnected from the old board and reattached to the new board?
Answer Hello K.G.,
You will need a pair of needle nosed pliers to pull a wire from the old board. Then locate the connector on the new board and connect it, making sure it is labeled the same as the old one. Now remove the next wire and connect it to the new board. Do this with each wire, one at a time and you will be done in no time with no wiring issues.
Control panel is dead, All power has been checked can I assume this is the issue ?
Answer Hello Jon. If there is power to the control board, and it does not work, you will need to replace the control board on the unit.
convection fan won't turn on after we heard a grinding sound then fan stopped. I bought/installed a new fan assembly but still won't turn on at all. Assuming a bad relay, but not sure where it is. Do I need to just replace the entire front electrical panel? And if so, is this something a pretty handy person can do himself?
Answer Michael, The model number indicates this is a "gas" slide in range. The convection fan will not operate for the first five(5) to seven(7) minutes or whenever the oven door is opened. You'll need to check for voltage to the fan motor on the blue wire, 10 minutes into a convection bake cycle. The ignition gasses and the heat have to equalize, before the fan can start and run. If there's no voltage, you'll need to check the wires from the control board to the fan motor, then replace the control board 5760M308-60, if all's OK. Yes, "a pretty handy person" with basic skills and tools will be able to replace the control.
