Introduction

This simple guide will point you to the faulty relay, a 5$ part, that will fix your oven.

Be careful and always unplug the oven from the wall outlet when working on it.

I didn't plan on making this guide prior to fixing the oven so don't hesitate to ask questions if needed.

This may apply to other ovens as well.

  1. This won't show you how to diagnose or open the back of your oven, you need enough skill to get here.
    • This won't show you how to diagnose or open the back of your oven, you need enough skill to get here.

    • The relay you need to replace is the big black one, circled in yellow, the T9AV5L12-12.

    • Disconnect all the cables from this assembly, they are all locking connectors so take your time.

    • You can remove the whole clock assembly by unscrewing the 4 screws marked in green.

    • Then remove the PWR board by removing the clips circled in red. Be careful, you have to pull out "locking" clips with pliers before you can press in the other locking clips. Once you see them you'll figure it out quickly.

    • Now desolder your old relay and solder the new one in. For my problem there was even a melted solder joint on one contact on the relay.

    • Reassemble and test your oven.

Do they have fuses?

OK so lets say that I am new to replacing a relay on a board. I get the concept but have never done it.

Is this something that can be done somewhat easily? or do i risk damaging the rest of the board?

I would appreciate if you have time to respond.

Also what was your problem with the stove initially?

My oven was not heating up, only the convection element worked (it's on 120VAC).

No 240VAC was present at either the bake or broil element. All elements tested good at 14-25 ohms.

It’s easy to replace the relay, just some good soldering work and nothing else can be damaged. Also the relay solder points are large, you wouldn’t need any magnifying equipement that you would need for smaller work.

Patrice, thanks very much for your article. I just fixed my oven control board, and I’d like to add a couple of points for other people who find this page.

(1) On my stove only two of the white connectors were locking. The others just needed wiggling out.

(2) The spade lug feeding L1 was a major pain to get off. The socket is of the locking kind, and in the end I had to open up the top halves of the socket to pull the supply wire away from the board. That was the hardest part of the job (for me today).

(3) I also had one melted joint. I replaced the relay (since I had it now anyway) but I tested the old relay after taking it out and it checks out OK.

I suspect had I just re-soldered the melted connection it would have been fine. (The melted connection is the common 220V leg of the relay, and given how small the 220V pins are, I am guessing that there is too much current through too small a pin and the solder just melts away eventually. A bad part choice by the control board designer, IMHO.)

will this solve a run away oven??????

I doubt it but i would still go through and pull the mainboard out, look on the backside and if you’re lucky it could be an obvious solder joint and/or relay that has failed.

Patrice and Jim,

Thanks so much for your help. I had this same problem and went back and forth from the computer to the oven testing all the elements and wiring. I ruled out the broil element and the wiring seemed fine so I was honing in on the EOC. I didn’t want to pay $200 for the EOC if there was just a bad relay so a google search with the word “relay” in it got me to this page. I removed the EOC from the range and with help from you guys was able to locate the melted solder joint. We (my son and I) re-soldered the pin and the oven is now working normally. We are beginners at soldering so I wouldn’t be surprised it if doesn’t last super long. At that point we’ll hopefully have a soldering wick and some more experience to clean up the joints a little better.

All that to say, thank you so much for this post and comments. We thanks God for people like you and our ability to find solutions and fix things that save us hundreds of dollars and give us the satisfaction of fixing things “on our own”.

In Him,

Adam
