Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX going to help you out today.
I see you had the relay replaced a few years back. This is somewhat of an alarm in my head having worked on this model before and knowing that pre heat board will go bad and usually the relay is the cause. I would check the board it's located on the top right under the drip pan. Chances are the relay may be bad again along w/ pre heat board. If you have a multi-meter you can test both of these. (sometimes you can visually tell the relay is bad as it will swell up)
I do not see anything under the drip pan. Can you be more specific? Thanks
I'm having trouble pulling the service manual off my cpu I will opt out as I don't want to go off memory in assisting you. Another expert should be able to help. If I get manual up I will come back into question.
Thanks. How much do I have to spend on a multimeter? Once I purchase it, how do I test the relay?
There are 6 wires attached to the relay. 4 in the front and 2 in the back. Going from left to right the wires in the front are Red/black stripe, Gray, Red, Orange. The wires in the back are Yellow/Red stripe and White. Some of the wires close to the relay seem to have burnt marks on them. Which wires do I attach the multi-meter to? (the black and red wires from the multi-meter go to what wires on the relay?). Thanks.
I replaced the 4 female connectors in the front of the relay. I cut back the wires about 2-3 inches and the wires were still a grayish color (not copper). I sanded the wires to remove the grayish color before I put the connectors on. I tried the oven and it still does not work. Also the oven selector light did not go on (i did not have that problem before. The oven pre-heat light worked (that was not a problem before). Help!
When I took off the control panel, the gray wire on the selector had burned so badly it disconnected from the female connector. I reattached it and the both the bake and broil elements are now working. The only problem is the oven selector indicator light still is not working. So it looks like the major problem is fixed. Any advice on the oven selector light?
