Customer Question

I have a kenmore(NNN) NNN-NNNNslide in range and oven
It has worked fine for almost 7 years
last week i was baking and realized it stopped heating up.
Both the oven and broiler are not heating up.
I checked the breaker and it was not tripped. I also didn't heard a loud pop...?
I was told by another person it is the clock/circut board.
If so what is the part number to replace it?

There is a safety thermostat that is located on the unit it is item 141B in the diagram below, if this blows out this would cause the problem you are having, hopefully it is only this, because the computer is very expensive to replace, the part number for the safety thermostat isNNN-NN-NNNN You can order the parts you need from the following places,,,, or, all of these places offer easy returns and reasonable prices for their items.
