I have a Magic Chef electric range, Model 38FN-6TVW. It has an electronic control panel with the following controls:<BR itxtNodeId="275"><BR itxtNodeId="274">Timer - Clock - Cook Time - Clean - Stop Time - Broil - Bake <BR itxtNodeId="273"><BR itxtNodeId="272">The control buttons that aren't working are Clean, Broil, Bake. The other buttons are working. <BR itxtNodeId="271"><BR itxtNodeId="270">Recently, when turning on the oven via the control panel, the oven would start to heat up, and very shortly thereafter, it would turn off. By turning on the oven on a few more times, it would eventually stay on.<BR itxtNodeId="269"><BR itxtNodeId="268">Now, when pressing the Bake Temp control panel button, nothing happens at all. <BR itxtNodeId="267"><BR itxtNodeId="266">I believe this happened to us last year, around the same time of year. We've had lots of rain and it's very humid here. Once the humidity lowers, the controls work again.<BR itxtNodeId="265"><BR itxtNodeId="264">I have found a site that sells parts for this model, but not sure which part would need replacing. Here is where I found some parts listed: APWagner Appliance Parts Source<BR itxtNodeId="262"><BR itxtNodeId="261">The range is about 23 years old and I know I need a new one. I was just hoping that perhaps it might be something minor. How hard would it be to take the control panel apart to check for corroded wires?<BR itxtNodeId="260"><BR itxtNodeId="259">Thanking in advance for any help or comments, it is greatly appreciated. <BR itxtNodeId="253">GA_googleFillSlotWithSize("ca-pub-3927874040083090", "HouseRepairTalk_Forum_336x280_BTF", 336, 280);
