Where is the bake terminal physically located?
Have three connectors on back of control unit. P1 - 2 wires, P2 - 6 wires, P4 - 4 wires (red, yel, blk, blk). Diagram on back of unit says that P4 yellow is the oven igniter. Disconnecting connector, setting unit to 350 and probing for AC voltage gives voltage of 1.7VAC. Does this confirm dead controller? The broiler works fine by the way.
Thanks for the help!
Yikes - $260 for the control unit: 10 year old range, best to repair or replace?
Thank you for the positive rating. It was my pleasure helping you today. Please get back to me here at any time if you have additional questions :)
OK, the replacement controller has finally arrived. I haveinstalled and there is still no power to the igniter.
OK, Don't understand what I am seeing here.......
Tracing the power lead back to the P4-2 yellow wire on the back of the controller.
I get 23VAC before turning on the oven
turn on the oven.
About 10 seconds later, I hear the relay click and the voltage drops to 0VAC
Not sure what you are asking for here. Voltmeter is running from power lead at the igniter to ground (wall socket). The igniter is currently not connected
Done, no change to the results
Yes - Just went out to the garage to get my hot-neutral tester and it says that hot and neutral are reversed......that circuit has not been touched for at least 10 years. Should I go ahead and swap the hot-neutral?
OK - very different behavior now. 11VAC before turning on oven and 122VAC after relay kicks on
No heat from the igniter. It is getting 120V though
OK, will replace the valve. The swapped hot-neutral wires caused the no voltage to the igniter. Wonder how it worked for so long
I don't see a safety valve on the parts diagram. Do you have the part number?
