Replacing trane control board

Is replacing the control board as easy as simply noting where all the wires run to on the old board, then putting the new board in and replacing the wires where they were on the old board on the new one? Thanks

If it is the same board and not an updated version. They do make changes quite often, but will supply the new wiring harness or adapters needed. If so just follow instructions that come with it.

No lights comeon the panel of my kenmore dishwashewr elite


The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console. It is a small silver colored device attached to a white plastic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:

1. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live voltages present.
2. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan on removing the entire door panel.
3. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
4. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it. Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly and tighten the wire lug screws securely.

NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you can't go wrong.

If you have any further questions, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.

PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

We just recieved our new kitchenaid heating element for the dishwasher, but it came with an electronic control or circuit board thing, and there is a note that both must be installed. We easily replaced...


Hi,
The control goes in the door...it is easy to get to.
Just take the screws out of the inside panel of the door, they are around the outside edge of the interior of the door. The panel will then lift off and the control will be near the top on the inside.
Make sure the power is turned off to the dishwasher and then one by one remove the wires from the old board and place them on the new board. then remove the old board and fasten in the new one. replace the panel and then give it a trial run.
Everything should be working just fine but some of the timing will be a bit different.

MY 1999 GMC JIMMY DO NOT BLOW HOT AIR, I TAKE TO FEW MECHANICS AND ANY ONE CANOT FIX\


It could be the thermostat,make sure the air is bled out of system after replacing.if it runs at a normal operating temp,then i would say it is your heater core,also if it has a reostat it could be bad,it is a little circuit board down by your blower motor,it has different thicknesses of wires coming off it like light bulb elements.

Kenmore oasis dryer model 110.6706 flashing F40 code is it the motor control board? I have already had this replaced 18 months ago


Just had one of those calls today......what I found this time was simply that the blue communication wire harness (I think it's a 3 wire, very easy to spot, runs from the side of each control board) had popped loose from the MCU. Inspect each connection for damage, and re-seat the connectors back into the controls. If that doesn't do it, you can measure for voltage (no fun with those tiny connectors) to the MCU. The code F-40 simply means loss of communication between the CCU and MCU. So it actually could be either board. Check it out and re-post if needed.

We had a power outage and the oven is now not working The burners are OK It is a gas oven


All the oven features are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board on your control panel. Even though it is a gas range, the igniters for both gas manifolds in the oven are electric. They are controlled by relays on the EOC. If BOTH oven features stopped working following a power outage, more than likely a power surge has either destroyed your EOC, or blown the input fuse (if equipped with one - most do not have a fuse). A visual inspection may reveal some burned components. These boards are highly susceptable to power surges from brown outs, lightning strikes and black outs. You can access the EOC by unplugging the range and removing the back of the control panel.

If you determine the board is defective, you will need to replace it in order to restore the features of your oven. NOTE: Most control boards do not come with the overlay. This is the plastic that covers the facing of the EOC with all the features on it. If you wish to save money, the old overlay can be used by carefully peeling it off the old board and installing it to the new one. Make sure you properly orient the overlay so that you are not installing on the EOC upside down.

To replace the EOC (if required), follow these steps:

1. Make sure the appliance is unplugged.
2. Remove the screws that hold the back of the control panel in place.
3. Take note of the wire color coding BEFORE removing any wires from the EOC. Most control boards will have the colors printed on the board by the terminals. If yours is not listed, either write the wire color codes down or use a digital camera to ensure you note the proper placement of the wires.
4. Remove the wires from the control board and the screws that hold it in place.

As noted before, most boards do not come with the overlay. Remove it from the old board if you wish to reuse it and install it to the replacement board.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back with your BRAND NAME and MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you. Some of these control boards can be expensive.

York furnace coding 9. which is ground or polarity fault. what do i look for?


I put a new control board in my York today and it was a different/newer board. I immediately had the 9 code thrown at me for grounding and polarity issue. All I had to do was switch the 2 gray wires on the transformer. The gray wires go the the 12 pin connector. The new board is wired differently.

Blower doesnt work at all. if you move the plug around it will work for a while, and how do you change the plug.


It is fairly easy to replace the cord, you will have to open the case. Follow the wire to the Control board. Cut the cord close to the control board, but leaving room to work with, at the wire ends, (leave 3in or so to work with) or undo any screws, match your new cord to the old by striping back the main insulation, checking the colors of the wires, match the wires color for color. Get some wire nuts from H-depot or Lowe. Twist the wires together, screw on the nut put back together pulg it up.

F1 Error code


i just had this same issues happen after running the self clean cycle. f1 error, fan would come on, fan would turn off. its not the control board, its the temperature probe. I picked up the part for 40 bucks and put it in myself. plugged the stove back in and it was good to go. the old temperature probe's wires melted during self clean. note to self: clean you over the old fashion way with some elbow grease.
