Amana AOCS3040 not heating

I have an Amana AOCS3040 wall oven that is not heating on any element. There is power to the control panel, light, and fan works, but not heat. I checked the high limit, and it is closed, which is supposed to be (NC) according to the schematic. I also checked the fan limit and it was also closed, but it is supposed to be (NO). I don't think this has any affect on the heaters though. Anyone know what else I can check? Thanks.

    After some investigation, I finally found the issue. It turned out to be the
    DBL (double line break) relay solder connections. This relay is used to feed
    120V to all elements. There was no output voltage on the relay. At first, I
    thought that the relay was bad, so I removed it, and it checked out OK with
    24VAC coil voltage. Next I checked the voltage at the
    terminals on the board that supply the coil, and I measured 30VAC, so I soldered
    the coil back onto the board, and tried it, and it worked this time. All
    elements back to heating. 100 screws later, oven back together and in the wall.

    PS - fan limit turned out to be good (Open). need to remove a wire first to
    check it. Dah...

    Last night my Amana also stopped heating using any of the three
    functions. Everything else, light, clock, convection fan work fine.
    Any ideas?

    Hi - seems my Amana AOC3040ss is doing the same thing, not heating. & like yours, found a BAD connection on the first relay. However the relays are unmarked for control-voltage. I'm thinking replacing this relay might be smart as the pole is a bit burnt on the pcb. Is the control voltage 24v? (relay Omron, 30a, 250vac, G8P-UA-006202 & marked 2442H1... which I'll 'guess' the first 2 numbers denote the control voltage?? though could easily just be an internal p/n).

    thanks for any info

Sounds like the element shorted out. I recommend having someone look at it or go out and buy a new oven. Either way you will have to spend some money to get someone to get your oven repaired/replaced.

It is possible that a relay on the control board is bad. GE has a relay in the common circuit to the bake and broil element. this has been a problem in a few ovens I have repaired. Check for this it is usually an orange relay on the board.

We just purchased a home that was built in 2003. It has a stainless steel double oven. The doors don't close tight. Is there a way to adjust them so they do? Thanks

I have the same problem on my AOCS3040 oven....door will not shut tightly so it loses heat and is about 25 degrees off plus the escaped heat makes the control panel get very hot during cooking.

Noise exhaust fan on my Amana AOCS3040

The exhaust fan on my oven (Aosc3040) is loud also and has always been. Just hope nothing significant brakes because this model has been discontinued and it is difficult to get parts for it. I have been told by Amana that the life expentency of this oven is 10-13 years, so don't invest in anything that is not necessary. The glass door broke on mine and I cannot get a replacement piece. My kitchen looks terrible. It is a shame because the oven works great. Linda
