  1. Hi Folks, I could really do with a bit of help in diagnosing a Bosch microwave issue The model is: HBC86P753B/01 Combi Oven and Microwave. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5d/7b/5d/5d7b5dd4a9d9cec46429852d96d23147.jpg The problem only affects the microwave section: The symptoms are as follows: I power on and select microwave at any power level setting, adjust timer to 1 minute and press start, The light comes on fan runs for about 3 seconds and then display resets back to clock. I am electronically qualified and aware of the high voltage risks, so dismantled to investigate yesterday. Magnetron shows no evidence of cracked magnets or distorted structure. Measures just under 1 ohm across heater with no leakage between either of the heater terminals and the case. If I run with the cover off, there are no sparks, unusual sounds or smells of burning. The conventional oven responds correctly to door switch when opened. This model uses an inverter PCB rather than the traditional capacitor and diode arrangement, so wondered if this module could be the cause. As the part is quite expensive, I thought it would be sensible to seek advice first. Are there any other items to check, or has anyone experience of this module failing? https://www.partmaster.co.uk/control-unit/product.pl?pid=1492093&query=HBC86P753B Many Thanks Regards Mike

  6. I have a GE JT915SOK5SS oven On bake it will only get in the range of about 250 degrees. IN convection, it will not get above 100. On Broil, it seems to work fine. I'm guessing it's the bottom element, but had the thought that it could be a sensor as well. Thought I'd post here before digging into it later today. (FWIW: I'd rate my skill level as high DIY. I've replaced parts on fridge, several on under cabinet ice maker, etc. and many electronics repairs. Oven is a first) thanks in advance.
  7. We've been selling our custom oven keypad replacement solution online for about nine months now and have run into this problem many times: The customer doesn't feel confident enough to install the part themselves. We have created pretty thorough installation manuals complete with detailed, high res photography to instruct them in what we already believe is a fairly simple operation. Nevertheless, appliance control parts appear to be intimidating to the average homeowner. Our product - The LinkBox: a small electronic module (typically half the size of an OEM control board) that installs on the backside of an oven touchpad next to the OEM control board. The module has a mounting bracket on it that mates with the mounting bracket for the OEM control board. It comes with a ribbon cable and two leads for L1 and N. The ribbon cable connects to the OEM control board in place of the OEM panel's ribbon cable. The L1 and N leads terminate in piggy-back terminals (or a special adapter depending on which model appliance the customer has) and are to be connected in parallel with incoming power to the OEM control board. It ships with a 7" tablet that will automatically boot into the user interface and establish a Bluetooth connection with the LinkBox when powered on. And that's it. When the customer wants to have this installed by a tech, we will refer them to you, and you can charge them a typical install fee or whatever you want! But it sounds like you get $50-$100 and a happy customer for about 10 minutes of work. At this moment, we are looking for techs in the following areas: Las Vegas, NV Maxton, NC Please let us know if you can help! -BoardFruit, Inc.

  12. We've seen a ton of Dacor built-in ovens fall victim to F1 and F7 error codes. The F1 can be caused by a number of different things: failed control boards, high resistance connections to the temperature sensors, and failed touchpads. F7 is only the result of failed touchpad. But, failed touchpads don't always yield error codes - other symptoms include erratic behavior ("ghost in the oven") and/or non-responsiveness. Unfortunately, OEM touchpads are no longer available, and the ones available through 3rd party resellers are at risk of being faulty. So when the touchpad fails, it looks the only option a homeowner has it replace their oven...their nice, built-in Dacor oven that cost them a hunk of change and perfectly fits in with their kitchen already. This does not make for happy campers. But not anymore! The BoardFruit LinkBox Keypad Replacement Kit is a slick new gadget that enables a user to interface with the OEM Dacor control board via touchscreen tablet in place of the failed OEM touchpad. And it's really easy to install. The module ships with a mounting bracket that tucks in right behind the OEM control board. Then, you just have to make three electrical connections: 1) Connect the large BoardFruit LinkBox ribbon cable to the OEM control board in place of the OEM panel's ribbon cable. 2) Connect the small BoardFruit LinkBox ribbon cable to the OEM relay board in pace of the once coming from the panel. 3) Make two piggy-back spade terminal connections on the OEM relay board which will supply 120VAC to the BoardFruit LinkBox. Close the oven up and flip the breaker back on (because you definitely turned it off before accessing the control cabinet, right?). Boot up the 7" tablet that shipped with the LinkBox and it will load straight into our app and make a wireless connection to the LinkBox (no wifi network required). Presto Chango! Now the oven has a modern new interface while simultaneously preserving the original kitchen aesthetic. Interested? You can check out our website here, but you should message me privately for the Appliantology discounted price. Enjoy! -BoardFruit
  13. Hello Fellow Sensei's this young grasshopper has been studying the forums and believe he may have found the issue. my Bosch Stove which loves to break down every now and then seems to not want to "convection" (Fan does not turn on) the oven gets up to temperature, the display shows that cool fan spinning around, however the fan itself does not spin. i am going to go on a limb and say that the fan motor needs to be replaced (because lets face it, what other reason could it be?) can you guys think of any other reasons besides the fan motor going? also a link to the actual "fan motor" in repair clinic would be fantastic. i seem to have found motor, but I think its for the exhaust which I think may be the wrong one at this link https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Bosch-Range-Stove-Oven-Vent-Fan-Motor/00491576/1052644?ss=a13b129&mr=1 also... a repair guide would be fantastic! drink on my friends. drink on
  14. Door lock is randomly locking and unlocking. when first called to house it was stuck locked. I took out door lock and replaced it. week or so had passed and customer called again complaining of same issue. I replaced EOC. got a call next day it is still doing it. Any ideas?
  15. This range lost functionality on part of the keypad (numbers and timers). We replaced the front panel with keypad and it worked again briefly. At one point there was some kind of noise (I was not around to witness this) and it worked again briefly. The repair part I received from a regional supply house had a suspicious look to the ribbon cable. It was slightly delaminated but had no obvious interaction between leads. I could not find a technical document that might have helped in troubleshooting continuity between leads and the switch circuitry. So we decided to try replacing the control board. No issues were encountered installing it but it did not resolve the problem. Now I'm back to concluding that perhaps the replacement keypad unit was defective. Are there any documents or tips that might assist in troubleshooting this before I go one more step in replace and test?

  20. Hello all! I have a Kenmore gas wall oven, model 911.30465894. This morning while preheating, the oven became very silent. When I started to preheat the oven, the fan came on and then it stopped after a few minutes. The oven continued to increase the heat to the desired temperature. I proceeded with cooking and after a few minutes, the fan came on again. Oven heats and cooks fine. Fan sounds normal when it runs. Fan stops running during cook time. Doesn't seem consistent with what it did prior to today. Prior to today, the fan would stay on until the oven cooled down after cooking. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Whirlpool Oven SF315PEMW1 Oven Died in middle of Thanksgiving Turkey, Stovetop still works. Control board Display Dead, 3 Capacitors Burst. Installed new Control Board, simple install 2 screws (not counting back cover) 3 unique connectors. Lights up with 12:00 displayed for time. Keypad responds as expected to all input. beeps when keys pressed. up down keys change time, timer and temp. Set time to 11:28 (Accurate at the time), hit start flashing : goes steady 20 min later time still shows 11:28 Set timer to 5:00 hit start - stays at 5:00 Set oven to 350, hit start, time shows 10:00 (preheat time) stays at 10:00 oven does not start tried broiler display shows 510 (temp?) oven does not start. I tried many variations of keystrokes, even read the manual, but it seemed the timer never started therefore none of the subsequent functions were initiated. At this point I assumed the DIY conclusion "They sent me a bad part" They overnighted a new board, Same results. Further aimless troubleshooting - No error codes ever displayed Tried unplugging then re plugging checked voltage in -123vAC Unplugged Oven connector leaving power to Board ( No change) Could this be 2 bad boards with the same defect - Unlikely Could this be operator error - yes, but what could I be missing??? Could this be installed incorrectly? I guess! but the wiring harness is pretty foolproof, 3 unique connectors only fit one way Could it be the wrong part? Possible but not likely, although the display is an exact match for the original boards, they are pretty obviously a different revision of the board (no longer uses the 3 capacitors that were on the old board). But this is the part number recommended when doing a part search by model number, and the part is packaged with "Whirlpool Corp Factory certified parts" Any thoughts or questions, please reply

  24. I have a Maytag dual wall oven, model CWE5800ACB, Series 19 (i.e., serial # begins with 19). Unit dates from prior to 2003 (when I bought the house). Recently, the bake element in the upper oven stopped heating. It failed in the middle of cooking and hasn't worked since. When I activate the bake setting, I hear the relay click immediately (twice actually, kind of like a tick-tock) and then I hear it click once about a minute or two later, and then again once every couple of minutes or so. Bake element does not heat at all. Temperature sensor seems to be working; the electronic display shows the oven temp as 75 degrees (i.e., approx room temp, 75 seems to be the minimum temp that the display indicates when the unit is turned on). I've pulled the bake element and checked the resistance; measured less than 50 ohms. I pulled out the electronic control unit, hoping to check the relays. The parts lists at the online parts shops indicated that the relays for this model are replaceable. Unfortunately, when I pulled the unit and inspected it, it looks like the relays are soldered onto the board; my guess is that the replaceable relays are for a newer rev of the unit. I did a search online for the part # on my control unit (7601P440-60), and it seems to be an older rev that is now obsolete and has no replacement part. Fortunately, there seem to be a couple places online that will refurbish this unit (price ranging from $100-$160): The Repair Shack, CoreCentric Solutions, and FixYourBoard.com Before sending out the unit for refurbishing, I was hoping to do a final test, so I know definitively what's at fault. From looking at the wiring chart and looking at the control unit, it appears that both the bake & broil circuits each have relays that are identical to each other. Thus it seems like I could swap the purple lead from E7 (BROIL) with the yellow lead from E5 (BAKE) and see if the bake element heats up when I activate the broil setting. That should prove that the relay on the unit is the culprit. Alternatively, I also considered jumping E5 (BAKE) and E6 (L1-B) to see if the element would start heating up. Not sure which of these tests is better, or if either/both are a problem. Any recommendations on which of these two tests to try before sending the control unit to be refurbished? Anything else I need to check? And any recommendations/advice regarding the 3 places listed above that advertise they can refurbish the unit (or referral to yet another place that can refurbish the unit)? BTW, I don't see any obvious sign of failure on the unit, no burns or scorches, everything looks normal. I realize that it might still be faulty, even with no obvious sign of failure. I just prefer diagnosing rather than guessing at the cause & throwing new parts at a problem. I've searched the forums for this and couldn't find this being discussed before; I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere. And thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  25. Introducing BoardFruit, Inc! We are hardware engineers with over ten years of specialization in appliance controls. We started out repairing control boards - mostly for ovens, refrigerators, and a few microwaves. Anybody who works on appliances knows well that the electronics do not last long. In fact, it appears they work just long enough to outlast manufacturer warranties and parts supply lines. When they do fail, replacement control boards are generally pretty hard to find, and expensive when available. You can get hard-to-source control boards repaired by a number of different operations around the country, but the success rate isn't the most reliable. Often, the homeowner's equipment can have a number of different parts failures, and the control board is just the tip of the iceberg. Even worse, nobody fixes touchpads. If a touchpad fails, and no replacements can be found, the whole appliance has to go to the landfill!! We are putting an end to this. Imagine: one control board package that can go into nearly any appliance and comes with its own remote touchpad. Anytime we think there might be a control failure or touchpad failure (think F1 error codes), we can just pop one of those babies in and find out real quick whether we've solved the appliance failure. Even better! What if that control board had on-board diagnostics that could tell you what else might be the problem in the appliance? Sounds too good to be true if you ask me. Unfortunately, it is....for now. But we are working on this! We actually do have our first product out right now. It's nowhere near as sophisticated as what I've just described, but it's still pretty cool, and it's keeping expensive Dacor ovens out of the landfill. We've made a slick little gadget that installs on the backside of a failed Dacor oven panel and connects to the OEM control board in place of the OEM touchpad. This little gadget also comes with a 7" touchscreen tablet booted with our custom software - a wireless, digital touchpad that restores full control of the Dacor oven to the homeowner. Check out the next blog post for more details!! This is our introduction to the Appliantology community. We hope to work together with anybody interested. We want your input, feedback, insults, and compliments. Oh, and hopefully you like our products enough to buy them, as well Cheers!
