Thanks for getting back so quick. The model # XXXXX XXXXX little hard to read but it looks like it is ACF4225AW. I should also mention that I have messed with the oven a bit. I like to make home made pizza's, and the recipe I use needs the oven at about 700*. The only way i can get that to work was to remove the locking door hook and turn it on clean. When I get to the temp I need I can still open the door. It works, just once you open the door it shuts the oven off which I'm sure is a safety mechanism, but i still get the pizza done in no time. But I was wondering if my unhooking the lock would have an effect on how the oven works. I wouldn't think so but I'm not the repairman. It does heat up good on "clean mode" though. Just not on the regular oven setting.Chuck
Well I changed the control board and proceeded to preheat and the same thing happened. I took about an hour and it was still 100* short of the set temp, the board is still clicking what sounds like on-and off. I don't think that was it. Can I send the board back? Now what? Chuck
The strange thing is that it heats up great on broil and on clean. But on oven it takes for ever and it's like a temp limit switch is clicking on and off.Maybe a fault in the lower heating element? Just guessing. Chuck
I put it on bake, I have the lower panel out so it was easy to feel that it was starting to heat. But within a minute I heard the clicking in the control board start. It won't really heat up that much before it shuts it off. Then off for a minute and back on for about five seconds then back off again. It doesn't do it in broil mode or clean mode just oven. I guess that would be why it takes so long to heat up in oven mode.
