I experienced recently problem with the bake portion of my oven. Broil is ok. When I push the bake button and set the requested temperature it will work for a while (15-30 sec). The temperature will start like usual at 100°'s and climb a little bit and suddenly everything stops. Which part should be replaced? Oven bake element, oven temperature sensor or the control (elect. part AP4102784)? Thanks
Answer Hello Gilles,
You will need to test the temperature sensor for about 1100 ohms at about 70°F. If this tests good, test it again from the sensor harness at the board. This is of course it has one. If the issue were the element, I would not expect the same issue each time the unit is turned on as it would be making and breaking contact. You will also need to check for 120Vac being passed from the bake relay. In order to distinguish L1 from L2, this test will need to be done with the wire from the relay to the bake element disconnected. If 0Vac is read at the terminal on the relay on the board, the relay is at fault. If 120Vac is read at this terminal, either the wiring harness or the bake element has failed.
Trying to locate a relay switch for the control panel.
Answer Hello James. The part you are needing 3149045 has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
