Bake Element - Part # 1055692 Mfg Part # 318255101

Bake Element

RepairClinic Item # 1055692

If the oven doesn't bake evenly, check the bake element. The bake element is a black tube near the bottom of the oven about as thick as a pencil. When it is operating normally, the bake element will glow red hot. If the oven doesn't bake evenly, the bake element may have burned out. It is often obvious to see where the bake element has burned out because there will be a hole in the element or blisters on the outside of the element. Test the bake element using an Ohm meter. If it has continuity it's OK. If not, it should be replaced.

Oven Control Board - Part # 1062443 Mfg Part # 316418552

Oven Control Board

RepairClinic Item # 1062443

The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't heat the problem is usually with the heating components. However, if the oven control board is bad, it might not send voltage to the heating components. To determine why the oven won't heat, first test the simpler components in the circuit. The oven control board can't be tested easily and will have to be replaced if it is defective.

Oven Sensor - Part # 1015027 Mfg Part # 316217002

Oven Sensor

RepairClinic Item # 1015027

If the oven doesn't bake evenly the oven sensor might be defective. The oven sensor works in conjunction with the oven control board - or clock - to regulate the temperature. The oven sensor is a simple electronic device which varies its resistance to electrical current as the temperature varies. If the oven doesn't bake evenly, this oven sensor resistance might be incorrect. For small variations, often there is a calibration feature at the control board. On many models there is a certain pattern of pushing buttons in order to calibrate the control board to the oven sensor resistance. Check the owners manual for more information.
