My electric oven wont come on when I turn in on to preheat. The control panel looks ok, the oven light comes on, the convection fan works, buit neither the main element or the broiler element come on.
I had the control panel replaced a year ago. any suggestions?

Re: ERD30S- oven wont turn on
Hi! jpdufilho Try tuning off the power to the unit for 20 minutes. If this does not fix the problem you may need a new control board/panel. If you have a lot of lightning in your area you should have several surge protectors in your house. All electronic devices need some type of surge suppression. InMrFixIt

As your oven is electric there is a heating element in the oven, have a look in the oven to find it and check the little plug in caps on the end to make sure they are not loose. If they,re ok check the switch on the front panel sometimes the knob comes loose on the spindle if that's all ok it may be the switch has failed. Good luck.
The way the oven works is like so: 1) User sets the desired temperature 2) Power is sent to the ignitor 3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current 4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven. 5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat. 6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature. (In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)
We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.
Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.
Need to check and see if you are getting 220 volts to the element or if the element is showing resistance with an ohm meter. Any resistance means it is ok. If you are not getting voltage to the elements and resistance is ok then the control board is bad. Note: Always check outlet for proper voltage first! Never know when a breaker has gone bad. Should have 220 volts from line 1 to line 2 and 110 volts from line 1 or line 2 to ground.
even if the ingitor glows, and the oven wont lite, the odds are that the ingitor is bad. it must draw 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. the only way to test the ignitor is with an amp probe.
replacing the ingnitor is about 90% a sure thing.
