hello ,do the top burners work ?and is it both bake and broil not working in the oven?thx Randy

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Randy, yes the top element's work and no bake or grill in oven. Oven light and fan work though.
Expert:  Randy 43 replied 1 year ago.

if the top burners work that means the power coming to the range is fine ,they both use 220volts ..if both bake and broil do not work ,its not likely both elements went out at the same time ..its most likely going to be the main control board ,the main relay on that board is gone ,or the wiring to that board relay is shorted or bad,if you remove the rear panel and look for any obvious shorts or bad connections to that board ,if all ok ?i would suspect the board , if you have a meter you can ohm out the elements and the high limit thermostat, if this occured after a self clean? elements and hi limit should all show continuity

my other post got deleted ,sorry

Expert:  Randy 43 replied 1 year ago.

if all else test ok ,power is good ,and no bad wiring to the board,then the main board would be faulty ,they share the line relay on the board

Expert:  Randy 43 replied 1 year ago.

elements wont both go bad at the same time ,and the top burners working verifies that power to range is good
