Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good morning, when you tested voltage to the bake element did you remove a wire from at least one side of the element or did you just put your meter leads to ground and to one side at a time with both wires still connected to the element ?
I completely each element before testing it. I tested by putting my multimeter on one lead and then the other probe went to the oven wall.
Thats what I figured but also figured maybe the broiler only gets to split 120. Anyway, do I need a new controller?
I design electronics so if I can repair the controller I would like to try that to.
Broil it the element on top right? The element on top I removed and then turned on the broil function. When I heard the relay click I was measuring from one single lead to ground and got 57VAC. I moved to the other lead and got 57VAC. I never tried testing both leads at once. Ill go try that right now. Just 30 seconds.
116vac, thats between both wires, not ground at all. 57 from one wire to ground.
One more question on the relay. If I got 57vac on both sides then the relay must be passing voltage or I would get 0vac. Right? Oh, and if I want to replace the relay instead of the whole control do you have a part number?
when you go across the two bake wires with them disconnected from the element "one lead to each of your meter probes" do you get 220 volts when on bake ?
Yes. More like 235 but it seems right.
Are you talking about the broil or bake element? Can you be more specific on the last question you posted. I'm not sure how you want me to test.
So far I have tested bake element leads. I get 117 each lead to ground and 235 between the two bake elements. This is when oven it turned on bake.
The broil element I get 57vac each lead to ground with element removed and I get 120 or so between the leads and this is when the oven is on broil.
I have not tested the bake element on the broil setting and I have not tested the broil element on the bake setting.
be back in a hour or so. Have to take daughter to school and pick up my power washer.
Ok tried that and got about 200mV on each lead to ground. No 120 at all.
okay now try the same test with the broil on. mmmm Something is missing. strange
Broil element with broil on is 57vac from lead to ground and 120 between leads.
I'm trying to find wiring diagrams for this. give me a few minutes, thanks, Bryan
no problem. im working on something anyway.
Bryan I cant find the part number can you help me with that?

Thanks so much Bryan.
Will remove the little guy and see if I can find replacement relays. If not will buy a refurbed. Thanks again and have a great day.
