It´s a wall-mounted GE oven. The model number is XXXXX 15BOD1BB.
I do not have a volt meter, but I do have some basic tools. If I need to buy a voltage meter , then I´ll buy one. Will that be fully necesary?
OK! I´ll move on that and get back to you later. Is that ok?
I´m back! Got me an Analog Multimeter and hope I can work with it. First I need to study it and see how to use it.
I´ll let you know.
Well, I think I have an idea on how to use the meter. Never used one before.
There seems to be a white, red and black. The ends plug in to another ending like the cars do. I put the black lead into the black terminal and the red into the red terminal at the same time and it metered what I assume is 220. I gaged it to 250 and it metered a little less than 250.
I see there are two of those of those parts in the oven. The video showed the replacing of a thermo in a .dryer. Is that ok? How do check for continuity?
Now, the video did not chow how to test the thermo. It showed how to replace it. Remember I never done this before so I need your step by step guidance. What am I to look for on the meter? I assume I´m to put the two leads, red and black on the positive of the thermo and the negative. But what adjusment do I make to the meter for that reading?
This video was helpful. Remember I mentioned that I saw two parts looking alike? Well one metered 0 and the other caused the needle to barely move. So I assume that this last one needs to be replaced.
Well let me give you a complete report of what I did. Before replying a while ago, when I told you that one metered 0 and the other barely moved the needle, the red, white and black wires were not connected. However the switch in the brake box was on. Now after telling you about that, I went back and connected the wires and tested both parts that look alike. One gave me the same 0 (zero) reading and the other that I said did not move the needle now caused the fan to turn on. The part that you show me now, has a number that leads up to T10059. I could not reach to see the numbers before the T. So I suspect that this one is for the fan and the other that gave me the zero reading is the thermo you are talking about.
Yes, I get 120. Is it ok with you, Byan, if we can pick up from here tomorrow a.m.? I was just about to say it´s late.
OK! Thank you! Good night! Talk to you tomorrow.
I'm on if you have any other questions, thanks , Bryan
Hi Bryan! I have just one last question. Can I ask it without being billed since it has to do with this case? Let me know, please. Israel.
Thank yoou! I just view your message. The question has to do with the disconnecting of the old control. I actually ordered the new one through the link you provided me. I was able to disconnect each terminal on the control except 4. They are the ones that states TAB 1, TAB 2, TAB 8, TAB 9. I don´t know if a special tool is to be used or what. They have a white plastic covering the terminal. They don´t respond to just pulling. What do I do? Thanks for your answer.
