Oven Control Board

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 turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.

Oven Thermostat

If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. Sometimes the electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.

Bake Element

If the oven won't turn off, 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 won't turn off the bake element may have burned out and shorted to a surface in the oven. It is often obvious to see where the bake element has shorted out because there will be a hole or break in the element. If the bake element has shorted to the inside of the oven it should be replaced.

If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately.
