My KitchenAid Range (model #KEDC205YWHO) oven heats very slowly.  Eventually reaches temperature (if not set too high).  I measured the voltage at the main coil while heating and read only 120v.  Looking at the same terminals with an occiliscope (sp?) I only see what appears to be a half chopped wave.  Is it possible that the triac has failed and is it replacable?  Or should i just get and replace the control module (seems to be about $200)?

 

Thanks

Have you checked the voltage to the oven to see if you have 240 volts to the range from the breaker box??  Or  for bad connections at the terminal block on the unit???

I do not have any paper on this unit.  Is a schematic for the control board available?  What i am thinking is that the coil is switched on using a triac and that the triac has failed in such a way that only half the cycles are applied to the coil (looking like 120v to my dvm) possible? If so and i can identify/get a replacement triac i could desolder the one on the board and replace.

I have exactly the same stove, and the same problem (it appears)! This "just happened" about a month ago ...  broiler element only getting 118V.

If you'd like to discuss off-line ... you can e-mail me at jeparker49@aol.com .... I'd appreciate any suggestions or recommendations ... short of shelling out $200 for a new control panel!!!
