Amana Convection Electric Range won't heat above 170°F

We have an Amana Convection Self-Cleaning Electric Range that appears to have an electronic control problem. Earlier this week, when the Bake button was selected, the digital temperature indicator goes to 170° from the 350° default in a couple of seconds. Then, it only heats up to 170°, it doesn't matter how high it is set it gravitates to the 170°. I tried resetting the oven by switching the breaker off and putting it back on but that doesn't reset anything except the clock.

The electronic control is suppose to have a self-diagnostic system that displays F-codes and beeps but nothing of that sort occurred (according to the owner's manual).

The Owner's Manual does not elaborate on troubleshooting beyond a few basic checks noted under the Before Calling for Service & Common Questions. The manual also doesn't have any diagrams showing where the fuses or the control board is.

Can the above low heating problem be solved by a simple part replacement and is such an item accessible from the back of the chassis or inside the touch pad panel?

Model Number: ZRTC8500WW
Manufacturing Number: P1143445NWW
Serial Number: 9709176838
Purchased - about: August 1998 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

It would have to be under warranty if this happened after only 1 week. I would contact the manufacturer.

SOURCE: Whirlpool electric range model # RF261PXSQ oven not heating

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.

Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

Oven won't heat.


Good Afternoon Gwen - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty bake or broil element. I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

Oven won't heat up


Hello Michele Smith - If neither elements do not heat but the top of the unit works, then they can possibly be faulty elements or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then you may have a bad control board that needs to be replaced. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

Hi there,
Most likely the door for your kitchen range has a sensor that is not allowing it to heat up because it detects that the door is not closed.
I would suggest you consult help from a certified technician by the manufacturer of your Kitchen range that way they would also be able to check other possible faults on your kitchen range and replacement parts would be 100% compatible.
