Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. It's not likely a control board but it's possible. I recommend disconnecting the power cord and removing and testing the bake and broil elements to see if they are shorted. I added a YouTube video showing how to test the oven elements. You could also use a process of elimination too. Disconnect the power cord and disconnect the bake or broil element and the reconnect the power cord and turn on the oven to see if it continues to trip the breaker. If it doesn't trip then one of the two is shorted.

It would help having additional details in order to have a complete understanding of when it trips the breaker and/or how long it will operate before it trips. Is it tripping the breaker when the oven is turned on or when the surface elements are turned on? Does the breaker trip immediately when ever the oven is turned on or when a surface element is turned on? Does it matter which one is turned on?

If it trips immediately when the range is plugged in then a wire or component is likely shorted directly to ground. If it takes a while to trip the breaker then it could have a loose wire connection anywhere between the circuit breaker and range.

Reply with additional details for further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I eliminated the bake and broil elements by disconnecting them one at a time and plugging in the range. I turn the breaker on and it trips immediately no luck. The breaker trips immediately when I plug in the range. I don't have to turn it on. If I unplug the range, I can reset the breaker. Just as soon as I plug it in, the breaker trips. Can I start unplugging the burner controls and eliminate them as well? I just bought this last year. Any help is appreciated.

Rob: Keep disconnecting components one a time until it quits tripping the breaker. It sounds like either the RED or BLACK wires connected to the terminal block are shorted to the cabinet of the range. Remove the terminal block cover on the back of the range where the power cord is attached and the rear panel and follow the RED and BLACK wires to see if one of them is short to ground/cabinet. Be sure to have the range unplugged first.

One of the wires from the burners became disconnected and actually grounded on the frame of the range. At first, I thought it was supposed to be like that but after I saw the burn marks I knew it was not right. I replaced the connector end and plugged it back in. The range works fine now. Thanks a lot for your help. It only cost me $2.78 versus an expensive service call or even a new range.
