what will it shut off after it gets to 185?
no it won't go above 185
ok will it shut off?.or just stays at 185?
it just stays at 185
both elements are receiving the same voltage and the bottom won't heat but the top will heat slowly but won't go above 185
the continuity is the same on both elements
ok now this can only be two things that would cause this.one is the temperature sensore that is no faulty.or the actual oven control board
this is usually the temperature sensor.i recommend that it be replaced
how do you check the sensor
i will try it on broil to see if it the sensor
ok take your time.
the broil gets hotter if you turn the oven on you can here the contactors turning on and off but the bottom element wont heat at all
ok how you tested the heater element for continuity?
both elements are getting the same voltage but the top cycles between 110 on one leg to 110 on both the bottom pretty much stays at 110 on both legs
yes both have continuity
but wont get past 185 correct?
my wit said it got to 225 after being on for 1.5 to 2 hours
ok i would say to replace the temperture sensor
if you going to replace it yourself i can provide you with a part number if youd like?
are you still with me?
it says 17% of the time its the temp sensor and 72% of the time it is the heating element is there any way to check the element
are you using a digital multi meter?
no its at work but i can bring it home thursday
you should receive 1000 t0 1100 ohms of resistance
ok will have to wait and check that
check the temperature sensore as well
that would be it.good luck to you
if i have been heloful pressing accept is how i get paid.
do you have any other questions for me?
are you still out there?
im not sure what happened.im going to stepoff this chat for the night.remember to press accept before you go
