Question about Ovens
Amana Elec Wall Oven ACOS3040SS, about 10 years old.
Checked power supply, have 240 and 120V across leads to panel..
Clock works, Conv Fan works.
Bake, Broil, and Conv all start, hear relays clicking, then oven shuts down with a click.
Xformer looks "cooked".
Worried because had a bizarre Electric Company Service issue, where they kept dropping 240 leg to my house over several months. No clue if my oven has low voltage cutoff, think my oven may have been operating and pulling higher current with this service issue.
I am an engineer, comfortable with a multimeter, could use a wiring diagram and expert advice.
Should be the glow ignighter if ite worn or broken it will shut down everthing

Should be an easy fix. If the hot surface glow ignitor (HSI) does not
glow and all control selections and settings on the front control panel
are set correctly, chances are the HSI is burned out.
Replacing the HSI part is likely to solve the problem. A very common part that burns out or becomes weak needing replacement. Reading a few of the existing questions pertaining to ovens with like or similar problems will explain how to replace the HSI. The below link will also provide helpful information.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
