If the unit has a board, there should be a fuse to protect it. Look for that. If you find it, and it is blown, BE SURE TO REPLACE IT WITH THE EXACT SAME FUSE/

Hi, If I was being called out to look at your range and you described to me what you said in your post, I would definetly bring an element. I suugest you tell that to your service person or purchase a new element. That is quite often the way the element's burn out, just as you described...a sparkler. Hope that help's. Good luck and thank's for visiting fixya. Macmarkus :)

My stove did the same thing after I cleaned it. I had to have the sensor replaced. That is what the F1 code is.

Suspect a bad oven element. Worse case is a bad oven relay on the clock control board.

The top element normally operates only when you turn the temperature control all the up to the broil setting as it is the broiling element. If it doesn't work at the broil setting, suspect a bad brioler element or a faulty temperature control.

Check to see if the oven elements work, take out the racks and check if the black tubes on the top and bottom have ripped.

With the oven OFF, check the resistance of the bake element with a ohmmeter on the lowest scale. Rx1. If your reading is infinate, replace the element as most elements will open circuit when they burn out. They don't short out.

Unplug the unit or flip the breaker switch (easier). After about 30 seconds, the latch will retract, allowing the door to close. Re-start the self-cleaning process.
