There was a power surge a few days ago and I lost a few items and one was the oven. I do have power going in at the 220 line. Is there a power unit on the oven that might have failed or did the control unit get hurt? Thank you
Answer Hello Adam,
You should check for 120Vac testing with a voltmeter from terminal P5-5 to terminal P5-8. If this isn't present, the safety thermostat 318004900 could be open. This safety thermostat has a reset button on it that has to be pressed and wiggled a bit to reset. The power has to be off to do this since 120Vac rides on one side even if it is open. If it is closed, 120Vac is on both sides. If the voltage is there, the electronic oven control 316418720 has failed.
Oven bake element went out during the auto clean cycle, now the broiler will not work. What do I need to do to correct this?
Answer Hello Ray. Make sure the thermal limiter 74008715 is good. If it is good, you will need to test the broil element and make sure it is good. If it test good, you will have to replace the control board on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How do I locate the bottom bake element on the stove which is hidden. The lower element quit heating.Thanks
Answer Hello Gary. Pull the unit out and remove the panel on the back of the unit to access and replace the element. Make sure the power is disconnected.
