I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

You say that the thermostat is good ! Did you test it ?

And have you ran the diagnostics on the unit yet?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
there are three thermostats. two just behind the control panel. one is for the cavity fan i think. the other is a l1 cut off. the third is the hi temp cutoff on the back.the probe ohms 1.1ki have no documentation.

Ok For some reason Just Answers web site seems slow today ,sorry for the delay.

The probe is what I was referring to as the thermostat , so if it is reading 1,100 ohms is is good

Which mean you have a issue with the main relay control board .

And it will need to be replaced.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

it is mounted under the cook top behind the display control /clock.

If you have any questions just let me know

my first post says its not the relay board. how do i know? i just put a brand new one in.not the relay board. not the thermostats, not the temp probe.

got a schematic? how do i run diagnostics?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 10 months ago.

Good info you had JUST said it was not the relay board you never said you had just replaced it!

Ok so to run a diagnostics to see if it has any hidden error codes .

To Enter Diagnostics Mode:

Before proceeding with any corrective action, perform the following steps to enter the Diagnostics mode.

1. To recall last failure code, if not displayed, press the OFF key to place the range in an idle state.

2. Press the OFF and START keys in the following order: OFF, OFF, START.

3. Verify the error code displayed on the control by observing for longer than 1 minute. If the error returns, use the applicable procedure listed below for the actual error code that is displayed.

And tell me what if any F error codes you are seeing .

You only have four components that make this unit heat . Which are the Display Control Board /Clock . the Main Relay Board /Appliance Manager , the Temp Sensor/Probe and the Heating Element.

And if the Display is still showing the set temperature when the Relay Board shuts the voltage off to the Element then it is not the Display Control Board.

If you have ohmed the Temp Senor/Probe out and get 1,100 ohms the Sensor is fine.

If the Element heats when it does get voltage , then it is not the Heating Element.

Which means it has to be internal of the Control Board!

Unless your not giving me the correct information .

So let`s run a diagnostics mode and see what error codes show up .

They can be from F0 to F6 and they will have an E number on the end ranging from E0 all the way to E5

i ran diagnostics. no error codes found. replaced oven sensor. still bad. gave up on this one.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 9 months ago.

ok so if the oven sensor was with in spec .

What is the part number of the control board that you replaced?

I`m showing a part number of WPW10181438 is that the part number that you have?

and where did you ohm the sensor out at?

was it on the control board connection or the quick connect on the sensor end of the harness.
