Question about Ovens
I turn on the oven just like always and no heat from broiler or oven. Fan comes on , display shows pre-heat and timer counts down like usual. I checked the power to both burners and not getting any power to either. It makes some clicking noises internally(sounds that I have heard before), but no heat. Any ideas? I have basic electric troubleshooting skills and a multimeter. I would guess the main circuit board if I were guessing, but please give me instructions on other things to check or if there is a way to rule out the main board. Thanks! I have the Whirlpool GMC305 electric oven combination and am faced with the exact problem with the broil or bake elements not heating up. The oven clicks like normal when I turned the oven on, the pre-heat timer began the countdown, and the fan turned on, but several minutes later I was surprised with no heat. I turned the oven off and back on, I tried the broiler, the auto-clean mode but no luck. I even turned the circuit breaker off and back on. I have not tested the power to both elements yet, but it have a feeling it is the same problem as HunterH-Any ideas would be great!
Check incoming electric first, pull it out and gain access to main wire terminal, With multimeter set to at least 250v AC , check your power across the wiring as such. black to white (110v), red to white(110v) and then black to red 230v. if that ok ok turn, then start ckin elements for continuty also there might be a thermostat( usually an 1 in. round component with 2 wires located right inbetween the elements that has gone bad, will show no continuity. ck that before electronic control the fact that its clickin sounds like the relays are workin properly
