Question and Answers

Q:

What is the resistance reading on the bake and the broil elements and the specifics on the live wire check for the bake and broil wiring?

A:

Those elements should measure between 10 and 20 ohms of resistance. Based on the wattage ratings, the bake element should measure close to 16.5 ohms of resistance. The broil element should measure around 14.5 ohms of resistance. A few ohms above or below those readings would be normal.

I recommend that you check the bake and broil element circuits from the electronic control board in the console. Unplug the range and access the back of that control board. Remove the back panel of the console to access that control board. The first image below shows a wiring diagram with the circuits through the bake and broil elements traced in wire colors. The second image show a drawing of the control board with the wire connections marked. You can measure the resistance of the bake element through the yellow and orange wires. Measure the resistance through the broil element through the blue and orange wires. You can also check for a short to the metal cabinet ground of the range by measuring the resistance between each of those wires and the bare metal cabinet beside the control board. You should measure infinite resistance or Ol -- open load during that test for each of the wires (yellow, blue and orange to cabinet ground). If those circuits are okay, then you should have no further problems with the range after replacing that control board.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
