Question and Answers

Q:

Elect. Range- No Bake/Broil after replacing burnt Bake Element. Cook Top works fine. Can't locate a Hi-Limit switch to check it out..ran wires..?

A:

I answered your previous question regarding this problem. Here is a link for that previous answer: I replaced a burnt Bake Element and I get nothing. No Bake, or Broil. I've looked for the Hi-Limit Switch, but cannot find one.

Unplug the range and remove the back panel. Trace the red wires attached to the terminal block if the information in the link provided above does not help you find that thermal high limit switch.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

The click that you hear is a relay closing on the control board to apply voltage to the element. Since you find no high limit switch, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the control board. If the wiring is okay, I recommend that you check the resistance through the bake element and broil element circuits. You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms through those circuits. If the wiring connections are okay and the circuits are good, then you will probably need to replace the control board to fix this problem. A technician would normally check the voltages going out of the control board but I do not recommend that you make this type of live voltage check. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

I am glad to hear that you got it fixed. Regarding the order of the failures, it is likely that the element failed and then shorted out of the control board. There is no way to tell for sure.

Q:

I replaced a burnt Bake Element and I get nothing. No Bake, or Broil. I've looked for the Hi-Limit Switch, but cannot find one.

A:

You could have a problem with the electronic oven control board or a tripped high limit switch. This range does have a high limit switch that will prevent the bake and broil elements from heating. I recommend that you unplug the range and check that component first. The wiring diagram in the first image below shows the high limit switch circled in green. It should have red wires going to it. A photograph of that part (74008715) is shown in the second image. You should find this component attached to the outside back wall of the oven. Move the range forward and remove the back panel to access this component. Press the red button to reset the switch. If it will not reset, it will need to be replaced. Here is a Sears PartsDirect.com link for that part: Limit switch .

If you reset this switch and still have a problem with the oven elements heating, I recommend that you check the continuity through that thermal switch using a volt/ohm meter (with the range unplugged ).

If the thermal switch is okay, then you will probably need to replace the electronic oven control board.

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 .
