OK, we'll give that a shot.

I noticed that if the door is closed and latched, it seems to have some play on the upper right. I can push it in 1/8" on the upper right, where it's tight and won't move on the upper left. Is this a clue as well?

We generally use Cascade gel. We'll try running a few cycles with no detergeant. How much is the right amount?

Thanks to everyone for all the help! I purchased the new control board (and used the old overlay). Our range is fully functional again. :)

I thought it was interesting that the original board was made in Mexico, and the new one was made in China.

Willie, I appreciate the advice. In the end, I needed to get this done so we could use our oven for the holidays!

OK, so what you're saying is just buy a new control board?

220v Oven Elements don't use Neutral.
You'd need to disconnect one terminal of each element and then measure to chassis (ground) to see which leg of the main power is missing.
L2 is usually always connected to one side of each Element.
The Controller connects the other side L1.

OK, this was a big help. After disconnecting each end of the elements and taking measurements, I didn't have 120 V at the end of the elements that connect to the BROIL and BAKE connectors (upper right of the close-up photo posted by K Dog).

It's not hard to separate the electronic board from the plastic case and check the back/trace side of the circuit board for burnt solder joints at the relay legs and repair them if found to save the cost of replacing the board.

So do you think this board is repairable? Here are some photos:

Final question: if I simply replace the board, could there be something else wrong that would cause this to happen again?

Thanks for all your help!!!
