The oven control board temp won't go above 250 deg and defaults to 175 deg to preheat when the bake button is pushed after a power failure. How do I test the control board (4453193) with a multi meter? Want to make sure that's the problem before I order a new control board.
Answer Todd, Sounds like the control board has reset to the "Celsius" temperature mode, after the power failure : The default is Fahrenheit (° F). 1. Press the BROIL pad for 5 seconds. The temperature will be displayed in degrees Celsius indicated by the "C"” in the temperature display.
2. To return the display to degrees Fahrenheit press the BROIL pad again for 5 seconds. “F” will show in the temperature display.
I've been advised that my electronic control board needs to be replaced. How do I access the board?
To replace the control board you would pull the unit out and disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the rear cover of the control panel and take the screws holding the control board on out. Install new board and reassemble.
I have replaced the microcomputer,(ap3177932). and the control panel,(ap3176848). Both are brand new, but I'm still getting the e1 f2 fault code. It will come up and every button works. The oven will kick on and count down the time to preheat. (along with the fan.) Then it will shut off and display the e1 f2 fault again. I tried the old computer and it did not show the fault codes. But the fan immediately kicked on and the oven wont countdown the preheat. Please help me figure out what is going on with my oven. Thank you. Carolyn
Answer Carolyn, You will need to check the insertion end of the keypad ribbon and make sure the end was not accidentally coverred with lubricant or plastic material on the production line. Check and make sure the ribbon is not creased or torn anywhere. Make sure the end of the ribbon is inserted into the microcomputer connector properly and tightly. " F2 E1 Keypad keytail not connected 1. Check keypad connector for firm connection.2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 sec., replace keypad.3. Replace control." After these checks, if the problem persists, re order a new control panel/keypad assembly. Thanks
