Upper oven stopped heating, then a month later the lower oven crapped out. Thermostats are fine, heating elements are fine, clock is fine. The repairman said I needed a new control board, $310. I found it online for $210 and it arrived yesterday.

I took photos to be sure that I connected everything the same way I took it apart. Powered up, nothing. Not even the clock worked. Bad board maybe? No... I reconnected the old board and NOW THAT DOESN'T WORK EITHER.

Granted I'm a novice on appliance and electrical things, but this should be easy! What have I done wrong? YES, there is power getting to it, the stove top still works. Is there a reset switch? HELP!

on the Controller Terminals:

check for 120v AC between the Black Wire on L1

and the White Wire on N

(The White Wires on NB are different .... )

1. How do I check for 120v AC (sorry, I'm new at this)?
2. I have two black wires, one white. The blacks are attached to NB and L1, the white is attached to N.

The last one should be the black and white wires

I found my voltmeter. The N and L1 connections, the reading is 0 or the far left on the dial at 250 AC (there isn't a 125 option).

testing on the 250 scale is OK ...

check for voltage between Black Wire and the Oven chassis (a good ground)

I think I just made my problem worse. The needle stayed on the left for L1, but I got a hell of a spark when I tried it on NB. The voltmeter could be fried. So could the wires. I'm a lousy electrician.

shouldn't be any voltage on NB

shouldn't have sparked if there was voltage, and if the meter was set on the correct scale .. (Volts)

It's analog, set to ACV. It melted the metal on the probe. Time for me to give up and buy a new oven?

The meter still works! Definitely voltage on NB, mid range of the dial. L1, needle didn't move from the far left position. This was using the chassis as a ground.

Black wires on NB and L1 might be swapped

HOLY SH*****T, you're brilliant! The upper oven works now, but the lower doesn't (and there's a lot of clicking noise going on). Any more pearls of wisdom wise man? I am in your debt!

While each Oven is set to respective Element:


Upper Broil ...  Tan Wire on Relay:

disconnect and measure voltage of Relay Terminal to chassis (a good ground)

and voltage of Tan Wire to chassis (a good ground)

 


Lower Bake ...  Yellow Wire on Relay:

disconnect and measure voltage of Relay Terminal to chassis (a good ground)

and voltage of Yellow Wire to chassis (a good ground)
