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.
