Model: MER5870BCW

Serial: 16177384AT

 

Neither bake nor broil is heating.  Found that I have 120 v on the side that comes from the board, but 0 v from the relay side.  Here is my problem:  There only seems to be 18 v coming out of the board to the relay.  Is this normal?  Further, when I check for continuity between the two black wires on the relay, I have an open connection.  My thinking is that this should be a coil and should have resistance.  See attached wiring diagram.  Do I need a relay or a board or both?

You have 120v at the relay (line voltage), 18v at the relay from the board telling the relay turn close and supply the voltage to the element. Sounds like a bad relay to me provided that the relay coil is 18v.

took me a bit to analyze this as I am in the midst of training myself on the wonderful world of electronics and schematics.... so thanks Strathy for the excercise. Amazingly, I came to the same conclusion as Spannerwrench. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. lol

My question to the masters is whether a board diagram would show the proper voltage output at the board's relay connector, or voltage listed on a block diagram of the relay or do you have to read the relay itself to see what voltage is required to energize the relay coil?

Having the exact same problem with an LG range that has the bake/broil relay and double line break relay on the same board.  Ordered the relay board and I'll let you know how it goes.  Had a Kitchenaid double oven once that kept blowing the main control.  Turned out the DLB relay was shorted and supplying 240 volts to the main control.
