Question and Answers


jds8850bdb range control panel or electronic control needed?


I see that Aashe posted a link for a previous answer that covers a similar failure on this type of range. Shutting off the house circuit breaker for the range may reset that control so that it works properly. Leave that breaker off for 5 minutes before restoring power to the range.

That previous answer shows the challenge in determining which component is causing your problem. In that previous answer, the problem was determined to be the control key panel even though the electronic control board often causes these symptoms. I provided a resistance test for the key panel in the first image below. You can shut off the house circuit breaker for the range and access the ribbon cable on that key panel. Use that information to test the keys on that panel. NOTE: You will normally need precision probes (needle probes) to accurately test that key panel.

If all of the key panel switches are good, then you will need to replace that electronic control board. If the key panel is bad, then it will need to be replaced.

I added additional technical information for this range in the second image. It shows how to reset the control to factory settings. It shows other functions for that control. Diagnostic tests are also provided in that second image. That technical data may help you for this and/or other failures.

The third image shows access information for the control panel and the electronic control board. As noted above, shut off the house circuit breaker for the range before accessing internal components.

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