unfortunately that is not the model number, open the door on the oven or the microwave and look on the frame and look for a tag that has the model number and serial number listed on it, I will need that model number to help you further, thanks.

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 1 month ago.

ok so did it let you set the oven to bake? and what happened when you started it anything?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I can set the time all the bottons work but when i press start button and doesnt work
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 1 month ago.

ok on the rear of the oven behind the cover panel there is a one time oven cut out thermostat that kills power to the oven if it it is tripped or if it just went bad, you will have to pull the oven out and take the panel off and check that with a meter , if it has continuity it is good if not that is the problem. If that is good then the main board is the issue. I have listed both parts below:

Range High-Limit Thermostat

Part #:(###) ###-####- click here

The control board part number is(###) ###-####/p>

The control board is no longer being made by the manufacturer so you cant buy one new, you can buy them refurbished or you can send them off to have it rebuilt, its about 100 cheaper to send it in and have it rebuilt.

You can send it of to this company for repair - click here

Ebay has one listed refurbished for sale - click here
