I have a GE Monogram dual fuel range that uses an Oven hot

I have a GE Monogram dual fuel range that uses an Oven hot wire relay that is no longer manufactured or available: WB21X5362. This same part was also used in Kelvinator, Kenmore, and other electric ranges. It is rated at 240 VAC 15 amp. Since it is a relatively low power relay, is a there a way to replace it with some other device that will perform the same function? Do you have a source or cross reference for outdated parts that will give me a substitute.

We inherited a Maytag Perform electric range smooth top when

We inherited a Maytag Perform electric range smooth top when we bought the house. I figured it is 10+ years old. My husband ,not wearing his glasses, was pushing every button trying to get it to bake and then to Broil. He never paid attention to the control panel before. So now Nothing works! Can't fix the clock because it goes into Sabbath mode! When pushing any other button like Bake or Broil nada.What I have done is : a. Pull the plug ( a real PITA!!!) and B.turn off the range at the fuse box and C. waited 72 hours for Sabbath mode to turn off and come back. to normal. I know the control panel is probably toast and we need either a new control panel or a new range. Then I started to wonder if there is a set of buttons to push to restart it?

I have a Whirlpool electric range model YWFE710HOBS1 that we

I have a Whirlpool electric range model YWFE710HOBS1 that we purchased in Nov 2014. Last week and again today I preheated the oven to 350 degrees to bake cookies. Once the oven was preheated the tone sounded to indicate the temp was correct and I placed the items in the oven to "cook". Not more than 5 minutes later I smell smoke and I turned around to see that my cookies are "on fire" (not literally but definitely burned to a crisp). It is at this time I notice that the broiler elements are on, the oven was set on "Bake" not "Broil". Can notJA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Whirlpool was purchased New in Nov 14 - so about two years oldJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes, if possibleJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Cannot find anything in the owners manual to indicate how to troubleshoot the problem. Also note OT that if I allow oven to cool and reset the clock it will start but the broiler element stays on
