Hello Forum.

 

I could use your input on this issue... Kitchenaid Superba wall oven (electric) #kems378sss04.

 

The call was for the Unit not heating properly in the bake cycle. So in diagnosing That cycle, I saw that in Preheat... Both elements came on as designed, but when the oven reached the set temp... the broiler element did Not shut off. (even after 20 mins). So i turned unit off, set to broil only (at 400 degrees) and with temp probe monitoring... watched temp reach 400, 410, 420, 440, 460... and was continuing to go up, so I shut it down. On the display, the unit showed the right setting (400), and showed the broil element light displayed at the ovens icon, and it NEVER went off or showed it was satisfied.

 

Now im pretty convinced its the electronic... I Think :confused: ... but just not sure (if im right on this)... WHICH electronic. Main Or ERC. And, IF not that... Then wut???

 

Anyone??? Anyone???...

More than likely it's a failed relay on what is usually called the "relay board" (the board on the side) http://www.repaircli...0119143/1373019
but with so many boards, I'd definitely get it from Repairclinic and return it if it happens to be something else.


btw, always check the element for grounding.
