Question and Answers

Q:

how many of this relay (part # 318111501) do you show needed for my oven (model # 79099513301)? Sears direct says two (2). Only see one on the wiring schematic.

A:

I did some research on the part and I was unable to locate information that would be helpful with regards to your question at this time. Your expert will answer within two business days with detailed information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

It appears that the range uses one of those relays for the oven light and another one of those relays for the convection fan.

That is why Sears PartsDirect indicates that the range has 2 of those relays.

Thanks. either I didn't ask a clear question or those who are responding are not reading what I initially wrote. When I called Sears Parts Direct the agent told me that her instructions told her that the unit required 2 of part # 318111501. That's what prompted my question. That part # is referred to by Sears as the "oven light relay." The other relay is part # 318112701, a very different relay, and is the oven/broiler element relay. My theory is that if part *501 is not properly functioning, neither will the oven or broiler element work because part *701 goes through part *501 per the schematic (or at least that's how I'm reading it). When the Sears rep told me their specs require 2 of part #501 IN ADDITION TO part #701, that's when I became concerned and asked my question. My conclusion is that the material the Sears rep referred to is inaccurate or the Sears rep inaccurately read it.

I'll hopefully know in a few days when part # *501 arrives and is installed. Will keep you posted.

Hello d. Did you get that relay installed? Let us know if you get a chance.

A:

I did but both the broiler and main oven elements are not functioning. Unless I'm missing something, the only other possibility is the main control board (I have continuity in both the oven and broiler elements).

I posted a wiring diagram with the circuits for the oven elements traced in wire colors. You could have a wiring failure or a problem with the electronic control board. The pink wires run from the electronic control board to the DLB (Double Line Break) relay. If you just replaced that relay, then you could have a wiring failure in those pink wires. I recommend that you check that issue. The control board will send voltage to the DLB relay through those pink wires. If the wiring in the rest of the circuits to the bake and broil elements is okay, then you probably have a bad electronic control board. This is a somewhat complicated system to diagnose and repair. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Do you know what the voltage output from the board to the relay via the pink wires is supposed to be? Have replaced both relays and the control board. Convection heat fan activates but neither element for bake or broil heats up. When I press bake or broil there is a clicking sound from board about every 30-40 seconds - sounds like a relay tripping. Any ideas?

A:

my bad, I failed to reconnect one of the leads after replacing a defective "new" board that sears sent me. It is baking and broiling, but still getting the regular clicks on the back cycle every 30-40 seconds until it reaches the target temp selected. Is this clicking normal for the bake side of this oven board?

A:

It is likely that you are hearing a relay clicking for the bake and broil elements. Those elements are probably alternated during the preheat process. I don't have the exact programming for that control. On similar controls, the broil element is cycled on for 10 to 15 seconds per minute during the preheat process. What you are describing is probably normal.

I know that it can be difficult to replace parts without the right information. The image below will show you where both of the relay go. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks for your response though you really didn't either understand nor answer my question. The schematic shows two relays but they are different relays.

I can see here that you resubmitted this question, and that Lyle explains how one goes to the oven light and one goes to the convection fan. This is what the schematic shows as well. They are the same relay, which is why you need two of them. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

It is possible for an element to have some continuity and be bad. The bake element on your range should have between 16-50 ohms resistance.

Remember if you check voltage to a 230 volt element to read from element terminal to element terminal. If you read voltage to ground it is confusing. You need 230 volts ac across the element terminals for it to get hot.
