SAFE SERVICING PRACTICES - ALL APPLIANCES
To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, it is important that Safe Servicing
Practices be observed. The following are some limited examples of safe practices:
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to
complete it in a safe and satisfactory manner.
2. Before servicing or moving an appliance:
• Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet, trip the circuit breaker to
the OFF position, or remove the fuse.
• Turn off the gas supply.
• Turn off the water supply.
3. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
4. USE ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE.
SUBSTITUTIONS MAY DEFEAT COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY
STANDARDS SET FOR HOME APPLIANCES.
5. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN,
or GREEN with YELLOW STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current
carrying conductors. It is EXTREMELY important that the service technician
reestablish all safety grounds prior to completion of service. Failure to do so
will create a hazard.
6. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp
edges, high-temperature components, and moving parts
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc. are
adequately spaced away from all metal parts and panels
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely
connected
• All panels are properly and securely reassembled

MAXIMUM SURFACE TEMPERATURES (allowed for gas and electric ranges)
When Electrolux tests side panels and doors for skin temperature, certain U.L. and/or A.G.A. guide
lines must be followed.
1. Product must be undamaged, correctly assembled and have the correct oven temperature.
2. All skin temperatures are based on a room temperature of 77°F (25°C) and an oven set temperature of
400°F.
3. Oven must be cycling at 400°F for one hour before test is conducted.
4. Pyrometers, (temperature testers), must be of high quality and properly adjusted.
5. An increase or decrease of 1°F in the room ambient temperature, will allow a 1°F increase or decrease
in the maximum allowable surface temperature of the range.

Normal Installation Steps:
1. Anti-Tip Bracket Installation Instructions
A. Locate the Bracket Using the Template - (Bracket
may be located on either the left or right side of the
range. Use the information below to locate the
bracket if template is not available). Mark the floor
or wall where left or right side of the range will be
located. If rear of range is against the wall or no
further than 1-1/4" from wall when installed, you
may use the wall or floor mount method. If molding
is installed and does not allow the bracket to fit
flush against the wall, remove molding or mount
bracket to the floor. For wall mount, locate the
bracket by placing the back edge of the template
against the rear wall and the side edge of template
on the mark made referencing the side of the
range. Place bracket on top of template and mark
location of the screw holes in wall. If rear of range
is further than 1-1/4" from the wall when installed,
attach bracket to the floor. For floor mount, locate
the bracket by placing back edge of the template
where the rear of the range will be located. Mark
the location of the screw holes, shown in template.
B. Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten Bracket - Drill a 1/8"
pilot hole where screws are to be located. If bracket
is to be mounted to the wall, drill pilot hole at an
approximate 20° downward angle. If bracket is to be
mounted to masonry or ceramic floors, drill a 5/32"
pilot hole 1-3/4" deep. The screws provided may be
used in wood or concrete material. Use a 5/16" nutdriver or flat head screwdriver to secure the bracket
in place.

pressure. A convertible pressure regulator is connected
to the manifold and MUST be connected in series with
the gas supply line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has
been used, follow instructions provided with the kit for
converting the pressure regulator to LP/Propane use.
Care must be taken during installation of range not to
obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to
the regulator should be no more than 14 inches of water
column pressure. The inlet pressure to the regulator
must be at least 1 inch greater than regulator manifold
pressure. Examples: If regulator is set for natural gas
4 inch manifold pressure, inlet pressure must be at
least 5 inches; if regulator has been converted for LP/
Propane gas 10 inch manifold pressure, inlet pressure
must be at least 11 inches.
Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted
according to the instructions in step 4g.
The gas supply line should be 1/2" or 3/4" I.D.
C. Level and Position Range
Level range by adjusting the (4) leveling legs with a
wrench. Note: A minimum clearance of 1/8" is
required between the bottom of the range and the
leveling leg to allow room for the bracket. Use a spirit
level to check your adjustments. Slide range back
into position. Visually check that rear leveling leg is
inserted into and fully secured by the Anti-Tip
Bracket by removing lower panel or storage drawer.
For models with a warmer drawer or broiler
compartment, grasp the top rear edge of the range
and carefully attempt to tilt it forward.

See Page 22.
7. Electric Ignition Surface Burners
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after
range and supply line connectors have been carefully
checked for leaks and range has been connected to
electric power.
a) To check for proper lighting, push in and turn
a surface burner knob counterclockwise to the
LITE position. You will hear the igniter sparking.
b) The surface burner should light when gas is
available to the top burner. Purge air from supply
lines by leaving knob in the LITE position until
burner ignites. Each burner should light within
four (4) seconds in normal operation after air has
been purged from supply lines.
c) Visually check that burner has lit. Once the
burner lights, the control knob should be turned
out of the LITE position.
d) There are separate electrodes (igniters) for each
burner. Try each knob separately until all burner
valves have been checked.
The oven burner is equipped with an electric control
system as well as an electric oven burner igniter. If your
model is equipped with a waist-high broil burner, it will
also have an electric burner igniter. These control systems
require no adjustment. When the oven is set to operate,
current will flow to the igniter. It will "glow" similar to a
light bulb. When the igniter has reached a temperature
sufficient to ignite gas, the electrically controlled oven
valve will open and flame will appear at the oven burner.
There is a time lapse from 30 to 60 seconds after the
thermostat is turned ON before the flame appears at the
oven burner. When the oven reaches the dial setting, the
glowing igniter will go off. The burner flame will go "out"
in 20 to 30 seconds after the igniter goes "OFF." To
maintain any given oven temperature, this cycle will
continue as long as the dial (or display) is set to operate.
After removing all packing materials and literature
from the oven:
a) Set oven to BAKE at 300ºF. See Use & Care
Manual for operating instructions.
b) Within 60 seconds the oven burner should
ignite. Check for proper flame, and allow the
burner to cycle once. Reset controls to off.
c) If your model is equipped with a waist-high
broiler, set oven to BROIL. See Use & Care
Manual for operating instructions.
d) Within 60 seconds the broil burner should ignite.
Check for proper flame. Reset controls to off.

• Before installing the range in area covered
with linoleum or any other synthetic floor
covering, make sure the floor covering can
withstand heat at least 90°F above room
temperature without shrinking, warping or
discoloring. Do not install the range over
carpeting unless you place an insulating pad
or sheet of ¼” thick plywood between the
range and carpeting.
• Make sure the wall coverings around the
range can withstand the heat generated by
the range.
• Do not obstruct the flow of combustion air at the
oven vent nor around the base or beneath the
lower front panel of the range. Avoid touching
the vent openings or nearby surfaces as they
may become hot. This range requires fresh air
for proper burner combustion.
• Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above the range. Children could be
seriously burned climbing on the range to reach
items.
• To eliminate the need to reach over the surface burners, cabinet storage space above the
burners should be avoided.
• Adjust surface burner flame size so it does
not extend beyond the edge of the cooking
utensil. Excessive flame is hazardous.
• Do not use the oven as a storage space. This
creates a potentially hazardous situation.
• Never use your range for warming or heating
the room. Prolonged use of the range without
adequate ventilation can be hazardous.
To reduce the risk of
tipping of the range, the
range must be secured
by properly installed antitip bracket (s) provided
with the range. To check
if the bracket(s) is
installed properly, grasp
the top rear edge of the
range and carefully tilt it
forward to make sure the
range is anchored.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids near this or any
other appliance. Explosions or fires could result.
• Remove broiler pan and other utensils and wipe
up excess spillage before self-cleaning the oven
(if equipped).
27
Do not make any attempt to operate the electric ignition oven during an electrical power failure. Resumption of electric power
when OVEN TEMP and OVEN SET controls are in
any position other than OFF will result in automatic
ignition of the oven or broiler burner.
For checking the regulator, the inlet pressure must
be at least 1" water column pressure greater than the
regulator manifold outlet setting. If the regulator is
set for 4" of manifold pressure, the inlet pressure
must be at least 5". If the regulator is set for 10", the
inlet pressure must be at least 11".
In case of a power outage, you can light the surface burners on your range with a match. Hold a
lighted match to the burner, then slowly turn the
knob to the LITE position. Use extreme caution
when lighting burners this way.
The gas supply line into the range should be ½” or
¾” I.D. flexible metal appliance connector five feet
in length.
Surface burner in use when electrical power failure
occurs will continue to operate normally.
Seal any openings in the wall behind the range and
in the floor under the range when hookups are completed.
The oven burner and broil burner on your range
are lighted by electrical ignition. The oven and
broiler cannot be operated in the event of a
power failure.

C. Because solid pipe restricts moving the range we
recommended use of A.G.A. design certified flexible metal appliance connector. Connect flexible
appliance to flare union.
A convertible pressure regulator is connected in series with the manifold of the range and must remain
in series with the supply line regardless of whether
natural or LP gas is being used.
D. Move range into approximate position and connect flexible appliance connector to gas supply
line with proper flare union adaptor. The adaptor
supplied with the flexible connector must be used.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to the regulator must be no more than 14" of
water column (W.C.) pressure.

greater than the branch circuit rating. Such extension cords are obtainable through your local service organization.
Grounding Instructions
IMPORTANT Please read carefully.
For personal safety, this appliance must be
properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a
3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong grounding wall receptacle (see Figure
16) to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from the appliance.
Refer to the Use and Care Guide packaged with the
range for operating instructions and for care and
cleaning of your range.
Do not touch the burners. They may be hot enough
to cause burns.
1. Check the igniters
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after range and supply line connectors have been
carefully checked for leaks and range has been
connected to electric power.
Note: If range is to be operated on L.P. gas, conversion of regulator and adjustment of burner
spuds is necessary before ignition check.
a) Surface Burner Igniters
To check for proper lighting, push in and turn a
surface burner knob to the LITE position. The
surface burner should light when gas is available to top burner. Each burner should light
within 4 seconds in normal operation after air
has been purged from supply lines. Once the
burner lights, knob should be rotated out of the
LITE position. Try each valve separately until
all burners have been checked out.
The wall receptacle and circuit should be checked
by a qualified electrician to make sure the receptacle is properly grounded.

34
SECTION B - GAS FLOW
The home gas supply is connected to the range at the
pressure regulator located at the rear of the range.
The pressure regulator has two outlets; one is connected
to the manifold pipe, the other to the oven safety valve.The
outlet to the oven safety valve is equipped with a manual
shut-off valve so that gas to the oven safety valve may be
turned off at the regulator.
The gas travels from the other outlet of the pressure
regulator through a supply tube to the manifold pipe.
The manifold pipe is a rigid steel pipe used to distribute gas to the four top burner valves.
35
The top burner valves are mounted to the manifold pipe
and are used to control the gas flow to the top burners.
The valve goes from closed to completely open by manually rotating the valve stem from 0 to 270 angular degrees. Gas flow goes from zero to maximum flow at 90
degrees, and from maximum to minimum as the valve
stem is turned from 90 to 270 degrees. When the top
burner valve is turned on, gas passes through the valve
into the supply tube connecting the sealed burner.
The sealed burner contains the orifice that controls the
maximum amount of gas to the burner head.
The sample of orifice sizes are as follows:
Burner Type
Natural
Liquid Propane
Simmer Burner
5,000 BTU
1.08 mm
4,500 BTU
0.66 mm
Standard Burner

1.54 mm
7,500 BTU
0.89 mm
Power Burner
11,000 BTU
1.63 mm
10,000 BTU
1.00 mm
As the gas passes between the orifice and the burner
head, air is mixed with the gas to form a combustible
mixture. The burner head disperses the gas air mixture to the burner ports where ignition occurs.
The burner cap must be in place for the burner to operate.
The second outlet of the pressure regulator is connected
to an electric dual safety valve. Unless the manual shutoff on the pressure regulator is in the off position, gas
is present at the safety valve at all times. The safety
valve has two outlets that are controlled by separate,
electrically heated, bimetal strips. One outlet has a spud
covering a mixer pin that injects gas into the oven
burner. The second outlet is connected by a tube to
supply gas to the broiler burner.
The oven burner is ported and allows an even amount of
gas to flow from both sides of the burner. When gas is
injected into the burner by the safety valve, it passes
into the venturi to draw primary air through the air
shutter opening. The gas and air are mixed in the venturi
and passed through the burner ports to be ignited by the
silicon carbide oven igniter.
When supplied to the broil burner, gas and air are mixed
at the throat of the burner venturi. This mixture is
distributed inside a plenum and passes through a fine
mesh screen to be ignited by the silicon carbide broiler
igniter.
ELECTRIC CIRCUITS
Range models with spark ignition for the top burners
and silicon carbide igniters for both the bake and broil
burners use electricity for oven light circuit, electronic
oven control circuit, warmer zone element, warmer
drawer element, top burner ignition, bake burner
ignition circuit, and broil burner ignition circuit. These
items operate on line to neutral voltage, and their
circuits are connected in parallel. The range is connected to a 120 VAC, 15 amp household outlet, by a
three prong plug and line cord. The other end of the
cord branches into red wires carrying line one to the
circuits, white wires that supply neutral for the circuits,
and one green wire connected to the chassis for safety
grounding.
36
4. If the gas pressure is correct either both orifices are
too small or a restriction is in the tubing.
HOW THE GAS FLOW SYSTEM WORKS
Gas flow systems on gas ranges are designed to operate on one of two gas pressures - 4 inches of water
column for natural gas and 10 inches of water column for
LP gas. To obtain these operate pressures two things
are needed. Input pressure must be at least a 1/2 inch
above the operating pressure and a supply line that has
the volume necessary to support these pressure under
full flow. If the gas supply is correct, it is the job of the
pressure regulator to increase or decrease the volume of
gas in the range system to maintain these set pressures under different gas flows. A fixed orifice for each
burner then controls the maximum flow to the burner. In
the tubing between the pressure regulator and the orifices is either an electric or mechanical valve that allows
the gas to one of the burners to be turned on an off.
When a valve is turned on, the orifice injects gas into the
burner. As the gas enters the burner it passes by an
opening that allows air to be pulled into and mix with the
gas to form a combustible mixture. The faster the gas
enters the burner the more air is drawn in. If the gas to
air mixture is between 4% and 14% gas the mixture is
combustible. The closer the mixture is 9% gas to 91%
air, the cleaner the flame.
Burner flame is yellow tipped:
1. Not enough air to gas ratio. Either gas pressure is
low, or there is a restriction in the tubing, or the
wrong size orifice has been installed.
2. Turn on another burner. If the flame on the second
burner is normal then there is a restriction in the
tubing or the orifice is the wrong size.
3. If the second flame is yellow tipped also check the
gas pressure under flow. If the gas pressure is low
check the gas supply to the range under flow. If the
gas supply to the range is between 4 1/2 and 14
inches if installed on natural gas, or 11 inches if
installed on LP gas, change the pressure regulator.
4. If the gas pressure is correct, either both orifices are
too small or there is a restriction in the tubing.
Top Burner flame lifts off and roars when oven
burner is on:
TROUBLESHOOTING
Burner flame is too large:
1. Either the orifice is too large or the gas pressure is
too high.
2. Turn on another burner. If the flame on the second
burner is normal the orifice is too large. If the second
flame is large check the gas pressure under flow. If
the gas pressure is high change the pressure
regulator. If the gas pressure is correct check the
size of both orifices.
Burner flame is too small:
1. Either the orifice is too small or the gas pressure is
too low.
2. Turn on another burner. If the flame on the second
burner is normal the orifice is too small or there is a
restriction is the tubing to the burner.
3
Note: Always check the gas pressure on the furthest
orifice from the pressure regulator.
If the second flame is small check the gas pressure
under flow. If the gas pressure is low check the gas
supply to the range under flow. If the gas supply to
the range is between 4 1/2 and 14 inches if installed
on natural gas, or 11 inches if installed on LP gas,
change the pressure regulator.

the oven vent area for any opening from the oven
that would allow leakage or any voids in the

TOP BURNER SPARK IGNITION SYSTEM
How it works:
The top burner spark ignition system is made up of a
switch installed around the shaft of each valve, a spark
module and an igniter installed next to the burner heads
on seal burner models or between two burners on
standard top burners. 120 VAC is applied to the switches
whenever power is connected to the range. The switches
are connected in parallel so when any of the switches
are closed, 120 VAC is applied to the spark module.
The spark module output is connected to the igniters.
When electrical power is applied to the spark module
the module builds up an electrical charge across the
output terminal that is connected to the igniters. When
the electrical charge builds to a point that it can break
down the dielectric (air) between either the igniter and
the burner on sealed burner models or the igniter tips on
standard burner model, the igniter sparks to light the
burner.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Igniter does not spark when any of the switches
are turned to the lite position:
1. Check electrical power to range.
2. Turn the gas off to the range. Remove the back cover
and with the switches turn to lite position measure
the input voltage to the sparkmodule. If the meter
reads zero the wire to the switches or from the
switches is broken. If the meter reads 120 VAC go
to step 3.
3. Remove power from the range and disconnect the
wires from the output terminals of the spark module.
Reconnect power and turn one of the valves to the
lite position. If the spark module makes a snapping
noise, the wiring to the igniters is defective. If no
snapping is heard the spark module is defective.
Igniter system works normally for all but one valve:
1. Defective igniter switch on that valve.
Igniter sparks at normal rate with all valves turned
off:
1. Shorted switch or wire. Check each switch with an
Ohmmeter.
Igniter sparks intermittently with all valves turned
off:
1. Defective spark module.

HOW THE ES 100 OPERATES
The ES 100 electronic oven control system is made up
of two parts that control electrical power to the oven
igniter and valve.
1.
Electronic oven control.
2.
Oven temperature sensor.
When the bake pad is touched, and a temperature is set
with the up or down arrows the oven relay on the board
closes, and applies line to neutral voltage across the
oven circuit. The oven circuit is a series circuit made up
of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter
that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the oven burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat
of the oven igniter and the oven begins to heat up. In the
tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient thermistor
that increases in resistance as the oven temperature
increases. The microprocessor reads the resistance of
the oven sensor, and compares it with a programmed
temperature set into the control. When the resistance of
the oven sensor indicates the temperature in the oven is
about 10 degrees above the programmed temperature,
the microprocessor opens the relay. This removes
power from the oven circuit and closes the safety valve.
When power is removed from the oven circuit the oven
temperature begins to lower. As the oven temperature
40
lowers the resistance of the oven sensor decreases.
When the oven drops to about 10 degrees below the
programmed temperature the resistance of the sensor
tells the microprocessor to close the relay contacts, and
provide power to the oven circuit.
Note:
Note:
120 VAC is at the oven igniter as long as the
control calls for heat.
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20 degrees. The important
thing is the average temperature in the
oven. The average temperature in the
center of the oven should be within 10
degrees of the programmed temperature.
The calibration of the ES100 system cannot be
adjusted:
1. If the oven temperature test off. Check the resistance
of the oven sensor circuit against the chart below. If
the sensor circuit check good replace the control.

BROIL
When the broil pad is touched, and high or low is set with
the up or down arrows, the oven relay on the board
closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the oven
circuit. The oven circuit is a series circuit made up of the
electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that
reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first

enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon

igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat of
the igniter and the oven begins to heat up. In the tip of
the oven sensor is a positive coefficient thermistor that
increases in resistance as the oven temperature
increases. The microprocessor reads the resistance of
the oven sensor, and compares it with a programmed
temperature set into the control for HI or LO settings and
will cycle the burner when the temperature is reached.
CALIBRATION
To check oven calibration:
1. Place a thermometer or thermocouple in the center
of the oven.
2. Program the oven temperature for 350 degrees.
Allow the oven to cycle three times.
3. Average the highest and lowest reading. The average
should be within 10 degrees of 350.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The ES 100 has some self diagnostics built into the
microprocessor to help in troubleshooting the system.
When a failure occurs one of two codes will appear in all
the display windows: F1 or F3.
F1 code:
F1 indicates a malfunction in the control itself, and the
control should be replaced.
F3 code:
F3 indicates a defective sensor, electronic oven control
or the wiring in between. To determine which part is
defective:
1. Disconnect the 6 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 1 and 2 in the plug (not on the control board).
If the meter reads around the value of the oven
temperature sensor resistance chart the oven
control is defective. If the meter reads less than 800
Ohms or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.
3. Disconnect the harness from the oven sensor and
measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If the
reading is the same as that in step two the oven
sensor is defective. If the reading is correct with
the chart the harness is defective.

If the control appears to be operating normally,
and the oven heats in bake but not in broil, or the
oven heats in broil but not bake, replace the control.
Control will not program:
If the control will not program check for an open sensor
circuit. If the sensor circuit is good replace the control.
Blank Display:
If the display on the oven control is blank, with the
range connected to electrical power:
1. Go to the back of the control and measure the
voltage drop between pins 5 and 4 of the 6 pin plug.
If the meter reads line to neutral voltage (120 VAC)
the control is defective. If the meter reads zero the
wiring in the range is defective.
No heat:
If the control appears to be operating normally,
but the oven does not heat in bake or broil:
1. Program the control for bake and check to see if
the oven igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not glowing
go to step 2. If the igniter is glowing check the
manual gas shut-off for the oven to be sure gas is
being supply to the safety valve. Then remove the
igniter, connect it to 120 VAC and measure the
current flow through the igniter. If the current flow is
less than 3.2 amps replace the igniter. If the current
flow is 3.2 or more check the wiring in the oven
circuit for a poor connection.

Go to the back of the oven control, disconnect the
six pin plug and measure the voltage drop between
pins 5 and 6. If the meter reads 120 VAC the control
is defective. If the meter reads zero the igniter, safety
valve or the wiring in the oven circuit is open. Go to
step 3.
3. Disconnect power to the range, disconnect the wires
from the igniter and check it for continuity with an
Ohmmeter. If the meter reads open replace the
igniter. If the meter shows continuity check the

HOW THE ES 200 OPERATES
To Set the Controls for a Self-Clean Cycle:
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil burners,
and the locking of the door in clean.
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
1.
Electronic oven control.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
2.
Oven temperature sensor.
3.
Oven door lock mechanism.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the

seconds for the oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle
is completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
1. The time of day or “End” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will
continue to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and
the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can be
opened.
BAKE
When the bake pad is touched, and a temperature is
set with the up or down arrows, the bake relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across
the oven bake circuit and the preheat and oven indicator
lights on the control illuminate. The bake circuit is a
series circuit made up of the electronic oven control, a
silicon carbide igniter that reduces in resistance as it
heats up, and a current sensitive oven safety valve that
needs a minimum of 3.2 amps of current to open. When
electrical power is first applied to the circuit the resistance
of the igniter is high enough that the current flow in the
circuit is below the amount needed to open the safety
valve. As electrical current flows through the igniter it
causes the silicon carbide material to heat reducing the
resistance of the igniter and increasing the current flow
in the circuit. When the temperature of the igniter
reaches around 1800 degrees F the current flow in the
circuit exceeds 3.2 amps. The oven safety valve opens
allowing gas to flow into the bake burner. The gas is then
ignited by the heat of the bake igniter and the oven begins
to heat up. In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive
coefficient thermistor that increases in resistance as the
oven temperature increases. The microprocessor reads
46
the resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with
a programmed temperature set into the control. When
the resistance of the oven sensor indicates temperature
in the oven is about 10 degrees above the programmed
temperature the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit. After the first cycle the preheat indicator light on
the control goes out indicating the oven is preheated.
Note:
Full power is on the oven igniter as long as
the control calls for heat.
Note:
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20 degrees. The important
thing is the average temperature in the
oven. The average temperature in the
center of the oven should be within 10
degrees of the programmed temperature.
BROIL
When the broil pad is touched, and high or low is set with
the up or down arrows, the broil relay on the board
closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the broil
circuit and oven indicator lights on the control will
illuminate. The broil circuit is a series circuit made up of
the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that
reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit, the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the broil burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat
of the broil igniter and the oven begins to heat up. In the
tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient thermistor
that increases in resistance as the oven temperature
increases. The microprocessor reads the resistance of
the oven sensor and compares it with a programmed
temperature set into the control for HI or LO and will cycle
the burner when the temperature is reached.
47
CLEAN
When the clean pad is touched and a clean time is set,
(if the oven door is closed closing the contacts COM to
NO of the door switch), the door lock relay on the
electronic oven control closes providing line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) to the lock motor. “Cln” appears in the
display and the door lock indicator light blinks. The lock
motor starts to rotate closing the contacts of the door
lock switch. When the motor rotates one half turn the
contacts of the door lock switch reopen sending a
signal to the control telling it that the door is locked, and
to open the contacts of the lock relay. The door lock
indicator light glows steady and the control closes the
bake relay providing power to the bake circuit. The
clean temperature is preset into the control at around
860 degrees. It takes about 45 minutes for the oven to
reach 860 degrees. When the temperature is reached
the control cycles the bake burner off and on to maintain
the temperature until the clean time is completed. When
the clean time is completed, the control removes power
from the bake circuit and the oven cools down. When the
temperature in the oven goes below 500 degrees the
control closes the contacts of the lock relay. The lock
motor turns 180 degrees closing and reopening the
contacts of the lock switch and unlocking the door and
turning off the door lock indicator light. The open
contacts of the lock switch tell the control that the door
is unlocked and to open the contacts of the lock relay.
CALIBRATION
To check oven calibration:
1. Place a thermometer or thermocouple in the center
of the oven.
2. Program the oven temperature for 350 degrees.
Allow the oven to cycle three times.
3. Average the highest and lowest reading. The average
should be within 10 degrees of 350.
To change the calibration:
1. Touch the bake pad on the control, and using the up
arrow set the oven temperature to maximum 550
degrees.
2. Within 3 seconds touch and hold the bake pad
(usually about 5 seconds) until “00” appear in the
display.
Note:
If any numbers other than “00” appear in
the display, the control has been calibrated
in the field before.
3. By using the up or down arrows the calibration
temperature can be changed + or - 35 degrees.
4. When the desired calibration is reached, touch the
cancel pad to return the control to normal operation.
If the control will not program check for an open sensor
circuit. If the sensor circuit is good replace the control.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The ES 200 has some self diagnostics built into the
microprocessor to help in troubleshooting the system.
When a failure occurs one of three codes will appear
in all the display windows: F1, F3 or F9.
F1 code:
F1 indicates a malfunction in the control itself, and the
control should be replaced.
F3 code:
F3 indicates a defective sensor, electronic oven control
or the wiring in between. To determine which part is
defective:
1. Disconnect the 15 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 12 and 13 in the plug (not on the control
board). If the meter reads around the value of the
oven temperature sensor resistance chart, the oven
control is defective. If the meter reads less than 800
Ohms or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.
3. Disconnect the harness from the oven sensor and
measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If the
reading is the same as that in step two the oven
sensor is defective. If the reading is correct with
the chart the harness is defective.

and the lock motor.
If the display on the oven control is blank, with the
range connected to electrical power:
1. Go to the back of the control, disconnect the 15 pin
plug and measure the voltage drop between pins 4
and 5 in the plug. If the meter reads line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) the control is defective. If the
meter reads zero the wiring in the range is defective.
No heat:
If the control appears to be operating normally,
but the bake and broil burners do not heat:
1. Program the control for bake and check to see if
the bake igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not
glowing, go to step 3. If the igniter is glowing check
the manual gas shut-off for the oven to be sure gas
is being supplied to the safety valve. Then remove
the bake igniter, connect it to 120 VAC and measure
the current flow through the igniter. If the current
flow is less than 3.2 amps replace the igniter. If the
current flow is 3.2 or more check the wiring in the
bake circuit for a poor connection.
2. Program the control for broil and check to see if the
broil igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not glowing
go to step 4. If the igniter is glowing remove the
igniter, connect it to 120 VAC and measure the
current flow through the igniter. If the current flow is

SELF-CLEANING OVEN
Adhere to the following cleaning precautions:
•
DO NOT use oven cleaners or oven protective
coatings in or around any part of the self-cleaning
oven.
•
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for a
good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage
or remove the gasket.
•
DO NOT use any cleaning materials on the oven
door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.
•
Remove the broiler pan and insert, all utensils
and any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
•
Oven racks may be left in the oven or may be
removed. If they go through the clean cycle their
color will turn slightly blue and the finish will be dull.
After the cycle is complete and the oven has cooled,

rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth
containing a small amount of baby oil or salad oil
(this will make the racks glide easier into the rack
position).
•
Remove any excess spillovers in the oven cavity
before starting the self-cleaning cycle. To clean,
use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large spillovers
can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to
high temperatures. DO NOT allow food spills with
a high sugar or acid content (such as milk, tomatoes,
sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on
the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after
cleaning.
continue to illuminate.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 hour and

seconds for the oven door to lock).
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions
have been corrected.
CAUTION: Use care when opening the oven door after
the self-cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven
when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to
escape.
CAUTION: DO NOT force the oven door open. This
can damage the automatic door locking system. Use
caution when opening the door after the self-cleaning
cycle is completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
HOW THE ES 300 CONTROL SYSTEM WORKS
The ES 300 electronic oven control system is made up
of four parts that control the bake and broil burners, the
speed bake fan on some models, and the locking of the
door in clean.
1.
Electronic oven control.
2.
Oven temperature sensor.
6. The "LOCK" light will illuminate until the cleaning
cycle is completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
3.
Oven door lock mechanism.
4.
Speed bake switch.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
BAKE
1. The time of day or “End” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will
When the bake pad is touched, and a temperature is set
with the up or down arrows, the bake relay on the board
55
closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the oven
bake circuit. The preheat and oven indicator lights on the
control will illuminate. The bake circuit is a series circuit
made up of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide
igniter that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a
current sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum
of 3.2 amps of current to open. When electrical power is
first applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is
high enough that the current flow in the circuit is below
the amount needed to open the safety valve. As
electrical current flows through the igniter it causes the
silicon carbide material to heat reducing the resistance
of the igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the bake burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat
of the bake igniter and the oven begins to heat up. In the
tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient thermistor
that increases in resistance as the oven temperature
increases. The microprocessor reads the resistance of
the oven sensor, and compares it with a programmed
temperature set into the control. When the resistance of
the oven sensor indicates the temperature in the oven is
about 10 degrees above the programmed temperature
the microprocessor opens the relay, which removes
power from the bake circuit and closes the safety valve.
When power is removed from the bake circuit the oven
temperature begins to lower. As the oven temperature
lowers, the resistance of the oven sensor decreases.
When the oven drops to about 10 degrees below the
programmed temperature the resistance of the sensor
tells the microprocessor to close the relay contacts, and
provide power to the bake circuit. After the first cycle the
preheat indicator light on the control goes out indicating
the oven is preheated.
the contacts of the speed bake relay on the board. When
the contacts do close it provides line to neutral (120 AC)
to the speed bake fan in the oven. The fan will now
operate continuously until Clear Off is touched. Also,
if the oven door is opened during a speed bake operation
the fan stops and then restarts when the door is closed.
BROIL
When the broil pad is touched, and high or low is set
with the up or down arrows, the broil relay on the board
closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the broil
circuit and oven indicator lights on the control will
illuminate. The broil circuit is a series circuit made up of
the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that
reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the broil burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat
of the broil igniter and the oven begins to heat up. In the
tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient thermistor
that increases in resistance as the oven temperature
increases. The microprocessor reads the resistance of
the oven sensor, and compares it with a programmed
temperature set into the control for HI or LO and will cycle
the burner when the temperature is reached.
CLEAN
Note:
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20 degrees. The important
thing is the average temperature in the
oven. The average temperature in the
center of the oven should be within 10
degrees of the programmed temperature.
TIME BAKE
The time bake function allows the oven to be programmed
to stop baking at a set time, or to delay the start and
stop baking at a set time. The stop time cannot be set
for more than 11 hours and 59 minutes ahead of the
time of day.
SPEED BAKE
Speed bake operates the same as the bake cycle.
However, when the speed bake switch is turned on the
electronic oven control waits for 6 minutes before closing
When the clean pad is touched and a clean time is set
(if the oven door is closed closing the contacts COM to
NO of the door switch), the door lock relay on the
electronic oven control closes providing line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) to the lock motor. The lock motor
starts to rotates closing the contacts of the door lock
switch. When the motor rotates one half turn, the
contacts of the door lock switch reopen sending a
signal to the control telling it that the door is locked, and
to open the contacts of the lock relay. The control then
closes the bake relay providing power to the bake burner.
The clean temperature is preset into the control at
around 860 degrees. It takes about 45 minutes for the
oven to reach 860 degrees. When the temperature is
reached the control cycles the bake burner off and on to
maintain the temperature until the clean time is completed.
When the clean time is completed the control remove
power from the bake circuitand the oven cools down.
When the temperature in the oven goes below 500
56
degrees, the control closes the contacts of the lock
relay. The lock motor turns 180 degrees closing and
reopening the contacts of the lock switch and unlocking
the door. The open contacts of the lock switch tells the
control that the door is unlocked and to open the
contacts of the lock relay.
CALIBRATION
1. Disconnect the 15 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 12 and 13 in the plug (not on the control
board). If the meter reads around the value of the
oven temperature sensor resistance chart the oven
control is defective. If the meter reads less than 800
Ohms or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.
To check oven calibration:
RTD
1. Place a thermometer or thermocouple in the center
of the oven.
Temperature
2. Program the oven temperature for 350 degrees.
Allow the oven to cycle three times.
3. Average the highest and lowest reading. The average
should be within 10 degrees of 350.
To change the calibration:
1. Touch the bake pad on the control, and using the up
arrow set the oven temperature to maximum 550
degrees.
2. Within 3 seconds touch and hold the bake pad
(usually about 5 seconds) until “00” appear in the
display.
Note:
If any numbers other than “00” appear in
the display, the control has been calibrated
in the field before.

a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for
heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results).
During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range
can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave
small children unattended near the appliance; they may
be burned if they touch the hot oven door surfaces.
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use care when
opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand
to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow
hot air or steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY

PREHEAT
When the preheat pad is touched, and a temperature is
programmed with the number pads, the broil relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the
broil circuit for the first six minutes. The display will show
“Pre” and “Bake”. The broil circuit is a series circuit made
up of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter
that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The broil section of the safety valve opens
allowing gas to flow into the broil burner. The gas is then
ignited by the heat of the broil igniter and the oven begins
to heat up. After six minutes the control turns the broil
circuit off and activates the bake circuit. The bake circuit
is a series circuit made up of the electronic oven control,
a silicon carbide igniter that reduces in resistance as it
66
heats up, and a current sensitive oven safety valve that
needs a minimum of 3.2 amps of current to open. When
electrical power is first applied to the circuit the resistance
of the igniter is high enough that the current flow in the
circuit is below the amount needed to open the safety
valve. As electrical current flows through the igniter it
causes the silicon carbide material to heat reducing the
resistance of the igniter and increasing the current flow
in the circuit. When the temperature of the igniter
reaches around 1800 degrees F the current flow in the
circuit exceeds 3.2 amps. The bake section of the safety
valve opens allowing gas to flow into the bake burner. The
gas is then ignited by the heat of the bake igniter and the
oven begins to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates temperature in
the oven is about 10 degrees above the programmed
temperature the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit. After the first cycle the “Pre” will disappear in the
display indicating the oven is preheated.
Note:
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20 degrees. The important
thing is the average temperature in the
oven. The average temperature in the
center of the oven should be within 10
degrees of the programmed temperature.
BAKE
When the Bake pad is touched, and a temperature is
programmed with the number pads, the bake relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the
bake circuit and “Bake” will appear in the display. The
bake circuit is a series circuit made up of the electronic
oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that reduces in
resistance as it heats up, and a current sensitive oven
safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2 amps of current
to open. When electrical power is first applied to the
circuit the resistance of the igniter is high enough that the
current flow in the circuit is below the amount needed to
open the safety valve. As electrical current flows through
the igniter it causes the silicon carbide material to heat
67
reducing the resistance of the igniter and increasing the
current flow in the circuit. When the temperature of the
igniter reaches around 1800 degrees F the current flow
in the circuit exceeds 3.2 amps. The bake section of the
safety valve opens allowing gas to flow into the bake
burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat of the bake
igniter and the oven begins to heat up
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates temperature in
the oven is about 10 degrees above the programmed
temperature the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit.
TIME BAKE
The time bake function allows the oven to be programmed
to stop bake at a set time, or to delay the start and stop
baking at a set time. The stop time cannot be set for
more than 11 hours and 59 minutes ahead of the time
of day.
CONVECTION BAKE
When the convection bake pad is touched and a
temperature is set two things happen that do not
happen in normal bake. The electronic oven control
automatically raises the temperature 15 degrees and
after five minutes, the control turns the fan and the assist
element on. The delay is needed for the oven flame to
have proper venting stack action. After five minutes, and
if the oven door is closed, the convection relay on the
electronic oven control closes providing line to neutral
voltage to the convection fan motor and the convection
assist element. This relay remains closed until the
program is canceled or is interrupted by the opening of
the oven door. If interrupted by the opening of the oven
door, the relay will automatically close when the door is
closed.
CONVECTION ROAST
Convection roast operates the same as convection
bake except the control does not operate above the set
temperature and the temperature differential is larger.
BROIL
When the Broil pad is touched, and a temperature is set
between 400 and 550 degrees F (usually 550 degrees),
the broil relay on the board closes, applying line to
neutral voltage to the oven broil circuit and “Broil” will
appear in the display. The broil circuit is a series circuit
made up of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide
igniter that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a
current sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum
of 3.2 amps of current to open. When electrical power is
first applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is
high enough that the current flow in the circuit is below
the amount needed to open the safety valve. As
electrical current flows through the igniter it causes the
silicon carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance
of the igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The broil section of the safety valve opens
allowing gas to flow into the broil burner. The gas is then
ignited by the heat of the broil igniter and the oven begins
to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor in the tip of
the oven sensor is a positive thermistor that increases in
resistance as the oven temperature increases. The
microprocessor reads the resistance of the oven sensor
and compares it with a programmed temperature set into
the control. The broil burner will cycle when the set
temperature is reached.
CLEAN
When the Clean pad is touched and a clean time is set
(and if the oven door is closed closing the contacts COM
to NO of the door switch), the door lock relay on the
electronic oven control closes providing line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) to the lock motor. The lock motor
starts to rotate closing the contacts of the door lock
switch. When the motor rotates one half turn, the
contacts of the door lock switch reopen sending a signal
to the control telling it that the door is locked and to open
the contacts of the lock relay. The control then closes
the bake relay providing power to the bake circuit. The
clean temperature is preset into the control at around
860 degrees. It take about 45 minutes for the oven to
reach 860 degrees. When the temperature is reached
the control cycles the bake circuit off and on to maintain
the temperature until the clean time is completed. When
the clean time is completed, the control removes power
from the bake circuit and the oven cools down. When the
temperature in the oven goes below 500 degrees the
control closes the contacts of the lock relay. The lock
motor turns 180 degrees closing and reopening the
contacts of the lock switch and unlocking the door. The
open contacts of the lock switch tell the control that the
door is unlocked and to open the contacts of the lock
relay.
CALIBRATION
To check oven calibration:
1. Place a thermometer or thermocouple in the center
of the oven.
2. Program the oven temperature for 350°F. Allow the
oven to cycle three times.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The ES 400 has some self diagnostics built into the
microprocessor to help in troubleshooting the system.
When a failure occurs one of three codes will appear in
all the display windows: F1, F3, or F9.
F1 code:
F1 indicates a malfunction in the control itself, and the
control should be replaced.
68
F3 code:
F3 indicates a defective sensor, electronic oven control
or the wiring in between. To determine which part is
defective:
1. Disconnect the 15 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 14 and 15 in the plug (not on the control
board). If the meter reads around value of the oven
temperature sensor resistance chart the oven control
is defective. If the meter reads less than 800 Ohms
or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.

Preheat:
Bake:
This Preheat mode will bring the oven up to temperature
and then beep to let you know when to add your food.
Preheating the oven is recommended when baking breads
and cakes. Use this mode when recipes call for preheating. Preheating the oven allows the center of the oven
temperature to reach maximum performance by turning
on the broil burner first for top heat and then switching to
the bake burner before food is added. It is not necessary
when roasting or cooking casseroles. The oven can be
programmed to preheat at any temperature from 170°F
to 550°F.
Use this mode when preheating is not necessary, such
as roasting or cooking casseroles. The oven can be
programmed to bake at any temperature from 170°F to

Self-Clean:
When planning to use the oven directly after a self-clean
cycle remember to allow time for the oven to cool down
and the oven door to unlock. This normally takes about
one hour. So to self-clean for 3 hours will actually take
about 4 hours to complete.
*We recommend a 2 hour self-clean cycle for light soils,
a 3 hour cycle for average soils, and a 4 hour cycle for
heavy soils (to assure satisfactory results).
During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range
can become very hot to the touch. DO NOT leave
small children unattended near the appliance; they may
be burned if they touch the hot oven door surfaces.
DO NOT force the oven door open. This can damage the
automatic door locking system. Use care when
opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle. Stand
to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow
hot air or steam to escape. The oven may still be VERY
HOT.

HOW THE ES 450 OPERATES
Stopping or Interrupting a Self-Cleaning Cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a self-cleaning
cycle due to excessive smoke or fire in the oven:
The ES 450 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil burners, and
the locking of the door in clean.
1. Press Clear Off.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for approximately 1
hour and the “DOOR LOCKED” icon is no longer
displayed, then the oven door may be opened.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
To Set the Controls for the Self-Cleaning Cycle To
Start at a Delayed Time and Shut off Automatically
(example 3 hour self-clean cycle to finish at 9:00):
PREHEAT
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day and
the ovendoor is closed.
2. Press Clean. “CLEAN” will flash and “3:00” (default
3 hour clean cycle) will show in the display. If a 2 or
4 hour clean is desired use the number pads to
enter the time. Set the cleaning time based on the
3. Oven door lock mechanism.
When the preheat pad is touched, and a temperature is
programmed with the number pads, the broil relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the
broil circuit for the first six minutes. The display will show
“Pre” and “Bake”. The broil circuit is a series circuit made
up of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter
that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
78
applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The broil section of the safety valve opens
allowing gas to flow into the broil burner. The gas is then
ignited by the heat of the broil igniter and the oven begins
to heat up. After six minutes the control turns the broil
circuit off and activates the bake circuit. The bake circuit
is a series circuit made up of the electronic oven control,
a silicon carbide igniter that reduces in resistance as it
heats up, and a current sensitive oven safety valve that
needs a minimum of 3.2 amps of current to open. When
electrical power is first applied to the circuit the resistance
of the igniter is high enough that the current flow in the
circuit is below the amount needed to open the safety
valve. As electrical current flows through the igniter it
causes the silicon carbide material to heat reducing the
resistance of the igniter and increasing the current flow
in the circuit. When the temperature of the igniter
reaches around 1800 degrees F the current flow in the
circuit exceeds 3.2 amps. The bake section of the safety
valve opens allowing gas to flow into the bake burner. The
gas is then ignited by the heat of the bake igniter and the
oven begins to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates temperature in
the oven is about 10 degrees above the programmed
temperature the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit. After the first cycle the “Pre” will disappear in the
display indicating the oven is preheated.
Note:
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20 degrees. The important
thing is the average temperature in the
oven. The average temperature in the
center of the oven should be within 10
degrees of the programmed temperature.
79
BAKE
When the Bake pad is touched, and a temperature is
programmed with the number pads, the bake relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the
bake circuit and “Bake” will appear in the display. The
bake circuit is a series circuit made up of the electronic
oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that reduces in
resistance as it heats up, and a current sensitive oven
safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2 amps of current
to open. When electrical power is first applied to the
circuit the resistance of the igniter is high enough that the
current flow in the circuit is below the amount needed to
open the safety valve. As electrical current flows through
the igniter it causes the silicon carbide material to heat
reducing the resistance of the igniter and increasing the
current flow in the circuit. When the temperature of the
igniter reaches around 1800 degrees F the current flow
in the circuit exceeds 3.2 amps. The bake section of the
safety valve opens allowing gas to flow into the bake
burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat of the bake
igniter and the oven begins to heat up
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates temperature in
the oven is about 10 degrees above the programmed
temperature the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit.
TIME BAKE
The time bake function allows the oven to be programmed
to stop bake at a set time, or to delay the start and stop
baking at a set time. The stop time cannot be set for
more than 11 hours and 59 minutes ahead of the time of
day.
CONVECTION BAKE
When the convection bake pad is touched and a
temperature is set two things happen that do not happen
in normal bake. The electronic oven control automatically
raises the temperature 15 degrees and after five minutes,
the control turns the fan and the assist element on. The
delay is needed for the oven flame to have proper venting
stack action. After five minutes, and if the oven door is
closed, the convection relay on the electronic oven
control closes providing line to neutral voltage to the
convection fan motor and the convection assist element.
This relay remains closed until the program is canceled
or is interrupted by the opening of the oven door. If
interrupted by the opening of the oven door, the relay will
automatically close when the door is closed.
FIXED SETTINGS
Meats
When the meats pad is touched the oven operates with
the convection fan and assist element at the set
temperature.
Cakes
When the cakes pad is touched the oven operates at a
lower than set temperature with less temperature
differential.
Breads
When the breads pad is touched the oven operates at a
higher than set temperature with more temperature
differential.
BROIL
When the Broil pad is touched, and a temperature is set
between 400 and 550 degrees F (usually 550 degrees),
the broil relay on the board closes, applying line to
neutral voltage to the oven broil circuit and “Broil” will
appear in the display. The broil circuit is a series circuit
made up of the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide
igniter that reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a
current sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum
of 3.2 amps of current to open. When electrical power is
first applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is
high enough that the current flow in the circuit is below
the amount needed to open the safety valve. As
electrical current flows through the igniter it causes the
silicon carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance
of the igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800 degrees F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The broil section of the safety valve opens
allowing gas to flow into the broil burner. The gas is then
ignited by the heat of the broil igniter and the oven begins
to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor in the tip of
the oven sensor is a positive thermistor that increases in
resistance as the oven temperature increases. The
microprocessor reads the resistance of the oven sensor
and compares it with a programmed temperature set into
the control. The broil burner will cycle when the set
temperature is reached.
CLEAN
When the Clean pad is touched and a clean time is set
(and if the oven door is closed closing the contacts COM
to NO of the door switch), the door lock relay on the
electronic oven control closes providing line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) to the lock motor. The lock motor
starts to rotate closing the contacts of the door lock
switch. When the motor rotates one half turn, the
contacts of the door lock switch reopen sending a signal
to the control telling it that the door is locked and to open
the contacts of the lock relay. The control then closes
the bake relay providing power to the bake circuit. The
clean temperature is preset into the control at around
860 degrees. It take about 45 minutes for the oven to
reach 860 degrees. When the temperature is reached
the control cycles the bake circuit off and on to maintain
the temperature until the clean time is completed. When
the clean time is completed, the control removes power
from the bake circuit and the oven cools down. When the
temperature in the oven goes below 500 degrees the
control closes the contacts of the lock relay. The lock
motor turns 180 degrees closing and reopening the
contacts of the lock switch and unlocking the door. The
open contacts of the lock switch tell the control that the
door is unlocked and to open the contacts of the lock
relay.
CALIBRATION
To check oven calibration:
1. Place a thermometer or thermocouple in the center
of the oven.
2. Program the oven temperature for 350°F. Allow the
oven to cycle three times.
3. Average the highest and lowest reading. The average
should be within 10 degrees of 350°F.
To adjust the oven temperature higher:
1. Press the Bake pad for 6 seconds. “0” will appear
in the display.
2. To increase the temperature use the number pads to
enter the desired change. The temperature may be
increased up to 35°F.

3. Press Start to accept the temperature change
andthe display will return to the time of day. Press
Clear Off to reject the change if necessary.
To adjust the oven temperature lower:
1. Press the Bake pad for 6 seconds. “0” will appear
in the display.
2. To decrease the temperature use the number pads
to enter the desired change and then press Clean.
The temperature may be decreased up to 35°F.
3. Press Start to accept the temperature change and
the display will return to the time of day. Press Clear
Off to reject the change if necessary.
3. Disconnect the harness from the oven sensor and
measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If the
reading is the same as that in step two the oven
sensor is defective. If the reading is correct with
the chart the harness is defective.
F9 code:
F9 code indicates the control has detected a problem
with the motor door latch assembly. Check the contacts
of the lock switch, wiring to the lock motor assembly,
and the lock motor.
Control will not program:
If the control will not program check for an open sensor
circuit. If the sensor circuit is good, replace the control.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Time bake does not operate:
The ES 450 has some self diagnostics built into the
microprocessor to help in troubleshooting the system.
When a failure occurs one of three codes will appear in
all the display windows: F1, F3, or F9.
If the time bake does not operate check to be sure it is
being programmed correctly. If so, replace the control.
Convection bake:
F1 code:
F1 indicates a malfunction in the control itself, and the
control should be replaced.
F3 code:
F3 indicates a defective sensor, electronic oven control
or the wiring in between. To determine which part is
defective:
1. Disconnect the 15 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 14 and 15 in the plug (not on the control
board). If the meter reads around value of the oven
temperature sensor resistance chart the oven control
is defective. If the meter reads less than 800 Ohms
or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.
RTD
Temperature
(°F)
If neither the fan motor or the assist element operate
after the five minute delay when convection bake is
programmed:
1. Remove power from range. Go to the back of the
electronic oven control and disconnect the 15 pin
plug. With the oven door closed measure the
resistance between pins 10 and 12 in the 15 pin
plug in the plug. If the meter reads open check the
door switch and the wiring from the electronic oven
control to the door switch. If the meter reads zero
go to step 2.
2. Measure the resistance between pins 5 and 7. If
the meter reads around 10 Ohms the control is
defective. If the meter reads infinity either the wiring
to the fan motor and element is broken or both the
fan motor and the element are defective.
If the assist element heats but the fan motor does not
operate when convection bake is programmed, the fan
motor is defective or the fan blade blocked.

HOW THE ELECTRONIC OVEN CONTROL SYSTEM
ON THE 36” GAS RANGE OPERATES
8. The self-cleaning cycle will come on automatically
at the calculated time. At that time, the word
"DELAY" will go out and "ON" will appear.
The 36” gas self-cleaning range electronic oven control
system is made up of three parts that control the bake
and broil burners, and the locking of the door in clean.
When the Self-Clean Cycle is Completed:
1.
Electronic oven control.
1. The time of day will appear in the display window
and the word "LOCKED" may remain in the display.
2.
Oven temperature sensor.
3.
Oven door lock mechanism.
2. Once the oven has cooled down and the word
"LOCKED" shown in the display has gone out, then
the oven door can be opened.
CAUTION: DO NOT force the oven door open. This can
damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution
when opening the door after the self-cleaning cycle is
completed. The oven may still be VERY HOT.
CALIBRATING THE OVEN TEMPERATURE
When first using the oven, be sure to follow recipe times
and temperatures. If you think the oven is too hot or too
cool, the temperature can be adjusted. Before adjusting
the oven temperature, test a recipe by using a temperature
set higher or lower than the recommended temperature.
The baking results should help you to decide how much
of an adjustment is needed.
To Adjust the Oven Temperature:
1. Push BAKE.
2. Set the temperature to 550°F/288°C by pushing the
UP ARROW.
3. Within 2 seconds, push and hold BAKE for
approximately 5 seconds until the special 2 digit

Preheat:
When the preheat pad is touched, and a temperature is
programmed with the up or down arrows the bake relay
on the board closes, applying line to neutral voltage
across the oven bake circuit and “Pre” appears in the
display. The bake circuit is a series circuit made up of the
electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that
reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minmum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount needed to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800°F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2 amps.
The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow into the
bake burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat of the
bake igniter and the oven begins to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates the temperature
in the oven is about 10°F above the programmed
temperature, the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers, the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10
degrees below the programmed temperature, the
resistance of the sensor tells the microprocessor to
close the relay contacts, and provide power to the bake
circuit. After the first cycle the “Pre” in the display goes
out indicating the oven is preheated.
Note:
120 VAC is at the oven igniter as long as the
control calls for heat.
Bake:
When the bake pad is touched, and a temperature is
set with the up or down arrows the bake relay on the
board closes, applying line to neutral voltage across
the oven bake circuit. The bake circuit is a series circuit
made up of the electronic oven control, a silicon
carbide igniter that reduces in resistance as it heats up,
and a current sensitive oven safety valve that needs a
minimum of 3.2 amps of current to open. When electrical
power is first applied to the circuit the resistance of the
igniter is high enough that the current flow in the circuit
is below the amount needed to open the safety valve. As
electrical current flows through the igniter it causes the
silicon carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance
of the igniter and increasing the current flow in the
circuit. When the temperature of the igniter reaches
around 1800°F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2
amps. The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow
into the bake burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat
of the bake igniter and the oven begins to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor, and compares it with a
programmed temperature set into the control. When the
resistance of the oven sensor indicates the temperature
in the oven is about 10°F above the programmed
temperature, the microprocessor opens the relay, which
removes power from the bake circuit and closes the
safety valve. When power is removed from the bake
circuit the oven temperature begins to lower. As the
oven temperature lowers, the resistance of the oven
sensor decreases. When the oven drops to about 10°F
below the programmed temperature the resistance of the
sensor tells the microprocessor to close the relay
contacts, and provide power to the bake circuit.
Note:
Oven controls may have a spread of more
or less than 20°F. The important thing is
the average temperature in the oven. The
average temperature in the center of the
oven should be within 10°F of the
programmed temperature.
Broil:
When the broil pad is touched, and HI or LO is set with
the up or down arrows, the broil relay on the board
closes, applying line to neutral voltage across the broil
circuit and the oven indicator lights on the control will
illuminate. The broil circuit is a series circuit made up of
the electronic oven control, a silicon carbide igniter that
reduces in resistance as it heats up, and a current
sensitive oven safety valve that needs a minimum of 3.2
amps of current to open. When electrical power is first
applied to the circuit, the resistance of the igniter is high
enough that the current flow in the circuit is below the
amount need to open the safety valve. As electrical
current flows through the igniter it causes the silicon
carbide material to heat, reducing the resistance of the
igniter and increasing the current flow in the circuit.
When the temperature of the igniter reaches around
1800°F the current flow in the circuit exceeds 3.2 amps.
The oven safety valve opens allowing gas to flow into the
broil burner. The gas is then ignited by the heat of the
broil igniter and the oven begins to heat up.
In the tip of the oven sensor is a positive coefficient
thermistor that increases in resistance as the oven
temperature increases. The microprocessor reads the
resistance of the oven sensor and compares it with
programmed temperature set into the control for HI or LO
and will cycle the burner when the temperature is
reached.
Clean:
After the door is closed, the clean pad is touched, a clean
time is set, and the latch handle is moved to the lock
position, contacts COM to NO of the lock switch close
telling the electronic oven control that the door is locked.
“Clean” and “on” appear in the display and the control
closes the bake relay providing power to the bake circuit.
The oven starts to heat. When the temperature in the
oven reaches around 500°F the bimetal tab on the lock
mechanism rotates and prevents the door from being
unlocked. The clean temperature is preset into the
control at around 860°F. It takes about 45 minutes for the
oven to reach 860°F. When the temperature is reached,
the control cycles the bake burner off and on to maintain
the temperature until the clean time is completed. When
the clean time is completed the control removes power
from the bake circuit and the oven cools down. When the
temperature in the oven goes below 500°F the bimetal
tab has turned and the door can be unlocked.

To change the calibration:
1. Touch the bake pad on the control, and using the up
arrow set the oven temperature to maximum of
500°F.
2. Within 3 seconds touch and hold the bake pad
(about 5 seconds) until “00” appear in the display.
Note:
If any numbers other than “00” appear in
the display, the control has been calibrated
in the field before.
3. Disconnect the harness from the oven sensor and
measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If the
reading is the same as that in step two the oven
sensor is defective. If the reading is correct with
the chart the harness is defective.
“door” Code:
When the word “door” appears in the display when the
oven is programmed for clean this means the control
thinks the lock switch is open.
1. Make sure the latch handle is in the latch position.
3. By using the up or down arrows the calibration
temperature can be changed + or - 35°F.
2. Disconnect power from the range and go to the back
of the control and disconnect the eight pin plug.
TROUBLESHOOTING
The control for the 36” self-cleaning gas range has some
self diagnostics built into the microprocessor to help in
troubleshooting the system. When a failure occurs one
of three codes will appear in all the display windows: F1,
F3 or door.
3. Measure the resistance between pins 5 and 7. If
the meter reads zero the control is defective. If the
meter reads infinity the lock switch or the wires from
the control to the lock are open.
F1 indicates a malfunction in the control itself, and the
control should be replaced.
4. Remove the cover from the rear of the range and
disconnect the wires from the latch switch. Measure
the resistance between the terminals of the lock
switch. If the meter reads zero the wires from the
control to the lock switch are open. If the meter
reads infinity the switch is defective.
F3 code:
Control will not program:
F3 indicates a defective sensor, electronic oven control
or the wiring in between. To determine which part is
defective:
If the control will not program check for an open sensor
circuit. If the sensor circuit is good replace the control.
F1 code:
Blank display:
1. Disconnect the 8 pin plug from the back of the oven
control that connects the sensor to the oven control.
2. With an Ohmmeter measure the resistance between
pins 1 and 2 in the plug (not on the control board).
If the meter reads around the value of the oven
temperature sensor resistance chart the oven control
is defective. If the meter reads less than 800 Ohms
or more than 3000 Ohms, go to step 3.
91
If the display on the oven control is blank, with the range
connected to electrical power:
1. Go to the back of the control, and measure the
voltage drop between terminals E1 and E2 . If the
meter reads line to neutral voltage (120 VAC) the
control is defective. If the meter reads zero the
wiring in the range is defective.
No heat:
If the control appears to be operating normally, but the
bake and broil burners do not heat:
1. Program the control for bake and check to see if
the bake igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not glowing
go to step 3. If the igniter is glowing check the
manual gas shut-off for the oven to be sure gas is
being supply to the safety valve. Then remove the
bake igniter, connect it to 120 VAC and measure
the current flow through the igniter. If the current
flow is less than 3.2 amps replace the igniter. If the
current flow is 3.2 or more check the wiring in the
bake circuit for a poor connection.
2. Program the control for broil and check to see if the
broil igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not glowing
go to step 4. If the igniter is glowing remove the
igniter, connect it to 120 VAC and measure the
current flow through the igniter. If the current flow is
less than 3.2 amps replace the igniter. If the current
flow is 3.2 or more check the wiring in the broil circuit
for a poor connection.
3. Go to the back of the oven control and measure the
voltage drop between terminals E1 and E7. If the
meter reads 120 VAC the control is defective. If the

Self-cleaning:
Oven does not heat in self-clean:
1. Does the oven operate in normal bake? If yes and
the word “door” is not in the display, replace the
control. If no, go to the previous “No heat” section..
Oven heats in self-clean but the oven is not clean:
1. If the oven heats in self-clean but the oven is not
clean either the control was programmed for to short
of clean time or the control is cycling at too low of
clean temperature. Run another clean cycle and if
the oven is still not clean replace the control.

WARMER DRAWER
The warmer drawer is used to hold food at a serving
temperature usually between 160°F to 190°F.
To Set the Warmer Drawer Thermostat Control:
cycling contacts of the warmer switch. No matter where
the warmer knob is set during the first cycle, the
temperature will always go to about 200°F. The hold
cycle begins after the initial first cycle when the warmer
drawer temperature is then controlled by the cycling
contact of the warmer drawer switch. The diode is placed
in the circuit to lower the power to the element by about
30% during the holding cycle. This allows the warmer
drawer to preheat faster, and then operate at a lower
temperature during hold.
Troubleshooting:
There are five ways a warmer drawer control system with
a standard infinite switch can fail:
1. The element does not heat.
2. The element heats during preheat, then stay off until
the temperature drops to about 130°F.
The thermostat control is used to select the temperature
of the warmer drawer. It is located on the control panel.
To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the
desired setting. The temperatures are approximate, and
are designated by HI, MED and LO.
1. Turn the knob to select the desired temperature
setting.
2. For best results, preheat the drawer before adding
food. An empty drawer will preheat in approximately
15 minutes.
3. Turn the thermostat control to OFF after use.

The warmer drawer circuit operates in two cycles:
Preheat and Hold. The first cycle, preheat, is controlled
by the low limit thermostat which is set to open at about
200°F and reclose at about 130°F. The low limit thermostat
is connected electrically in parallel with the diode and
3. The switch does not cycle the element off in the
holding cycle.
4. Slow preheat.
5. The element operates correctly, but the indicator light
does not glow.
If the element does not heat:
1. Check to see if the indicator light is glowing. If the
indicator is not glowing remove the back panel of
the backguard and measure the voltage drop between
terminal L1 on the switch to neutral. If the meter
reads zero the lock switch or the wiring to the lock
switch is open. If the meter reads line to neutral
voltage (120 VAC) go to step 2.
2. Turn the switch on and measure the voltage drop
between terminal H1 on the switch and neutral. If
the meter reads zero the switch is defective. If the
meter reads line to neutral voltage the indicator light
or the wiring to the indicator light is defective. Correct
the indicator light problem and go to step 3.
3. Remove the warmer drawer and measure the voltage
drop across the terminals of the element. If the meter
reads line to neutral voltage the element is defective.
If the meter reads zero go to step 4.
4. Measure the voltage drop from each terminal of the
element to neutral. If the meter reads zero on both
terminals the wire from terminal H1 on the switch to
the element is open. If the meter reads line to neutral
voltage, check the wiring to the low limit thermostat,
the diode, and the cycling portion of the warmer
94
switch. If the wiring is good, the low limit thermostat
is defective, and either the diode or the switch is
also defective.
If the element heats during preheat, then stays off
until the temperature drops to about 130°F:
1. Check the diode and the cycling portion of the warmer
switch.
If the element does not cycle off:
1. Remove one wire from the low limit thermostat and
set the warmer switch to low. If the element cycles
after the drawer has warmed up, the low limit
thermostat is defective. If it does not, the warmer
switch is defective. It is also possible for a wire on
the neutral side of the element to be shorted to
chassis.
If the warmer drawer is slow preheating:
1. Normal preheat time is around 15 minutes with the
drawer empty. Check the low limit thermostat. If
the contacts are open, replace the thermostat.
If the warmer drawer heats, but the indicator light
does not glow:
1. Check the indicator light and the wiring to the
indicator light. (Note: The indicator light does not
cycle with the element.)
