- Control Board
CustomerChris from VA
After hearing a pop about like a 2 liter bottle blowing its lid and the breaker tripping, on breaker reset received an F1 code on the oven.
Small flathead screwdriver and 5/16, (I believe as I'm typing from memory), driver.
Repair & Advice
After turning off the breaker AND unplugging the oven from its power source: 1) Remove the upper section of the back panel from the oven. 2) Remove the existing control board, (4 screws) from the oven. 3) The applique , (which does not come with the new part), must be carefully removed from the old board by peeling it away from the board itself. If unable to do so, a new applique is about $24. 4) Apply , (carefully), the applique to the new board. while still tacky from removal in previous step. 5) Finish removing the old control board from the ovens electrical connections. I did this by first using the small flathead to disconnect the multiwire harness plug from the board, being careful to not break the clips that hold the plug in place and making a mental note as to how the plug attaches, although I believe it will only connect one way. 6) Next I removed the individual wire connections from the old board one at a time and connected same, one at a time, to the appropriate connection on the new board until all, (4 or 5 wires), were transferred. You are now done with the old board*. 7) Now reconnect the multiwire connection to the new board remembering from Step 5 the plugin setup. 8) Reattach the board to the oven using the 4 screws removed earlier. 9) Reattach the upper back panel to the oven using the screws removed earlier. 10) Plug in the oven, reset the breaker and test the oven to insure proper working order. * I would be interested to find out if there is a market for the old board to get refurbished.
