The board usually doesn't go bad like that, unless something else was shorted.

Did you check the Ignitor to the frame with an OHM Meter ?

Did not do that. Checked igniter for continuity. Not sure how to check igniter to frame. Would appreciate clarification.

With the Range un-plugged from the wall outlet, and the BA and BK wires disconnected at the Controller,
test from each wire to each of the Line Cord pins.
there should be a reading to only one Line Cord pin (the large flat pin) which should read somewhere between 40 OHMS and 400 OHMS.

Did it and no reading on the ohm meter.

Removed broiler and bake igniters. Get continuity on both.\Does that mean that the igniters are fine?

Something may be shorted to ground....

Any ideas as to what to check for the short to ground? We have visually looked at everything and no sign of anything.

Sounds like from what you're saying the board may have just had cold/bad solder joints from the factory and they finally burnt loose at the main load caring circuit of the relay contacts.

If you know how to solder, it would be a possible cheap fix to just resolder the burnt loose relay contact points on the board and it may work, (I do believe I remember in a previous post you said you did hear the relays click).

How about posting a picture of the burnt connections on the control board?

Eureka! Your theory about a bad solder joint on the board looks, at the moment, like a good one. Soldered board and turned on oven and broiler and they fired up.

Sorry we didn't take a picture of the burned board.

Thanks you guys for your patience and help.
