Oven control panel is dead it has no power

I was trying to bake bread I turned the oven on it made raddling noise. then there was fire in the oven like lightning the the one side of the botom heating element turned flaming red. I had to turn it of from the braker because it started melting. Then the top panel was dead now the oven doesn't work. I know we have to replace the bottom burner but what do I do about the control panel. I hate digital I miss the old fashion dials. If you can help I would appreaciate it.

Thank you

Yours is the first complaint I've read of an exploding heating element.
Do a little research to see if there is perhaps a safety recall on this problem; a Litton combination range (microwave built into the otherwise conventional oven) was repaired at no cost some 7 or 8 years after we bought it for a design defect involving the magnetron getting soiled by food that had spilled or boiled over and created a chance of fire while in use.
It's worth looking into since the replacement of the electronics is likely to be costly.

GE Range JSP68 shuts off while preheating


I have an aging JSP68. First, take out the range control (held in by just a couple of screws, disect it, clean it the best you can, dry it. Be careful not to break it because there is no replacement. Pay special attention to the membrane buttons. They tend to stick. Realize the broiler element turns on sporadically to reach the set temp quickly, the bake element should be solid on. Check the "header" (the long double strip of pins) connecting the range control. I had to resolder mine. Another insult was that I baked a bread recipe that required you put water in the oven to generate steam. The steam made this oven literally go bonkers. The relays started to chatter and just a half minute of this will destroy them. Also when you press bake keep it pressed for a few seconds while adjusting the temp to 170 then release. If you don't hear the bake relay click on, try again. Another thing you could try is to press all of the buttons once, this should help to unstick them if any are stuck.

The Taylor oven thermometer you bought is decent at best. It is most likely the sensor inside the oven. Has your clock displayed any fault codes? F, followed by a number? Changing the sensor will probably correct the problem.

My 4 top elements work but my oven doesn't.


Take the back cover off the range. Locate the bake element terminals near the bottom of the oven. Turn bake on and check for voltage. If no voltage then replace control board. If voltage is good, then unplug oven and check for continuity. If no continuity then replace bake element. Also, does broil element work or is it dead as well? If both oven elements are dead then the control board is most likely at fault.

Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305 Display doesn't show, oven wont work


Most definitely a bad control board and/or soldered components. (The part about cutting power to the oven was a dead giveaway)
There are low and high temperature solders, but usually solder melts at 370° F. If the oven is improperly insulated or ventilated you will have continued heat stress to the control board.

Bake element doesn't turn off


The relay controlling the element has likely failed and welded it self closed. This parts is normally built into the electronic control board, which costs somewhere around $200 to $300 to replace.

Try http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ for the part. If are not familiar with repairing appliances, you might want to refer this to a professional.

yes the oven thermal fuse blew when the fan went off its also called a tco switch if you pull out the oven and take the top off there will be a tech sheet there that will give the location of the tco some are on top some are on back this can also happen if the oven is too tight in the cabinet not enough room around it to let the heat dissipate its a round metal disc with two wires on it

Our Whirlpool oven just started doing the same thing!!!! The Delay Start Time (setting it for one minute ahead) and then Start works just fine.  But we fried the tops of three loaves of homemade bread!!!!
