Maytag CHE9800BCB slide-in range oven was working fine, no complaints at all, and wife decided to use the self-cleaning mode. A couple hours after the self cleaning mode finished, the oven control panel would not work. No lights, no controls. Stove top knobs work, stove tops all work. Just no control panel and oven will not work. Instead of buying a new $1,500 slide-in electric range, I'd like to buy the relay board and replace. Before I purchase the relay board, any thoughts or past problems with anything else that could be the problem. This is just a plug-in type relay board, I'm assuming, I didn't see anything about soldering any joints or anything.
Answer Hello HungryJoe. You need to check and see if the thermostat 7403P307-60 on the back of the unit is bad. If so, it will cause the issue your having. 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 The thermostat has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
