Question and Answers

Q:

Posted to Mark (expert) Does Mark Get An Email?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry I did not get the response you have posted. If the new pinion did not help, I suggest checking the shaft from the gearbox. I have only seen the shaft break a handful of times. You will need to use caution when doing this. First, remove the spark plug wire. Then hold the bail down and pull the drive lever. With these held pull on the starter rope. When the engine turns over the shaft should be turning. If they were turning, I would say the problem is in the pinions or the wheels have worn teeth. I think you would have noticed that. Used the images below to inspect the pinions. If they look ok, you can use some graphite powder to help keep the parts moving free.

If the new pinion is not working you can call the parts department for an exchange. The number should be on the packing list that came with the parts.

I have double checked the alerts for this question so i should be notified if you respond.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

Why won't my oven heat above 225 degrees and I've already replaced the element?

A:

In order for the bake operation to heat correctly, the bake and broil elements alternate operation. When the bake element is off, the broil element should be on and and when broil element is on, the bake element is off. So, in order for oven to heat properlly the broil element must also come on during bake. Place the oven in broil to see if the broil element is working. Based on your symptom the broil element may be bad or the control. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

The relay sequence cycling is set so that only one heating unit at a time can be turned on. The control cycles between the Bake and Broil units during all modes of operation except Broil (Broil unit only).

During the Clean Mode the Broil unit only is on until oven reaches 750°F. Control then alternates between bake and broil units throughout balance of clean cycle. The last 40 minutes of clean time is for cool down (no heating units will be on). NOTE: Check bake & broil unit voltage when the control is calling for heat. Allow enough time for control to switch between heating units (could be up to 2 mins).

Q:

Why won't the selector knob mark the selection?

A:

The likely failure is the "PCB" control board.

I recommend calling a service technician in order to properly diagnose and repair your microwave. We do not assist consumers working on microwaves for safety concerns. The microwave can store 15,000 volts of electricity even when the microwave is unplugged from the power source which can be lethal.
