My lights turn on Range works but the oven and broil doesn't. Is this the relay or the Thermostat??

I had the same problem... Found burned etch line on the circuit board from relay (K3). I'm going to repair the etch and do a "smoke test"

Hi, if your Electric Oven will not Heat Up Check the Following:
Power Cord If the power cord fails you still may have the control portion working but no bake or some other functions. The reason this happens is the oven takes in 220 volts then splits that to 2 110 lines. Some for the controls, lights, bake and broils elements, and stove top. If your cord has failed on one half of the 220 line or the terminal block were the wires are connected may have melted or failed. You may need to replace the cord and terminal block.
Heating Element This is usually the problem. To Check this first turn oven on to a bake setting,say @350, check to see if element glows, if not shut oven off. If it is warm but does not glow it is getting power and the element needs to be replaced. If it does not get warm remove the element and check to see if it is getting power if it does get power replace the element. No power it is the main control that has failed. Check element for continuity, if none replace.
Temperature Sensor This is a long thin tube like part located usually in the top rear of the oven. It is held in by 2 screws. This can easily be removed by removing the 2 screws and carefully pulling it out. Usually there will be wires connected and insulation so you will need to work it out. Then unplug the connector and check with an ohmeter. It Should have around 1000-1100 ohms if not replace the sensor. Some will have a thin capillary tube attached in this case the problem will be in the control attached to this tube.
Main Control This can cause your oven not to heat. Sometimes the oven relay gets burned out, when this happens the control is unable to send power to the bake element. There will usually be separate relays for bake and broil if you have 2 different elements. If your heating element gets no power replace the control. If your control does not respond at all check to if youhave power entering the control. If you do and it does not respond replace the control. No power to the control Check or replace the power cord.

The control to tun the element on must be faulty, you will have to check it with an ohmmeter after youtake the wires off of jt make sure you draw a diagram of where the wires go when you put them back on Make sure to turn the power off before you start Hope this works for you good luck

It sounds like you are missing part of your input voltage.
I would take a voltage reading at the receptacle and confirm you are reading 220-240VAC. Some homes have the 220 service receptacles wired up with two 120 volt breakers to make up your 220 service. If your home is configured this way, you may have one of the breakers tripped. Or, the receptacle itself may be bad. If you confirm you have the correct voltage at the receptacle, your power cord may be bad.
The reason the clock and display will still appear to work is because the clock only uses 110-120VAC and is tapped off the source voltage. The surface burners and the oven heating elements, however, require the full 220 service.
If you are confused by this explanation, please post back and let me know. Hopefully, this is a problem that will not require any parts or a service call. If the power cord is bad, you can purchase a replacement at any hardware store. I hope this information is helpful.

Testimonial: "I will definitely check both the 120v wires in receptacle feeding power to the stove. The breaker in the house breaker box is a single 60amp breaker. "
Hi When an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it. Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion. Thank you for contacting fixya.com

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
