How To Replace An Electric Range Oven Control Board
This DIY repair article explains the replacement of the oven control board for an electric range. The oven’s control board contains the digital screen, bake, and broil elements. If the range oven won’t bake or broil because the control board isn’t sending voltage to the heating elements, or if the display isn’t working, replace the board using a manufacturer-approved replacement part. Use this repair method to replace the oven control board for Kenmore ranges.
