    Common oven repair parts you may need

    Replacing one of these oven parts may fix your problem.

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A faulty electronic control board can cause several problems in an oven, such as power loss, insufficient heating, or the inability to turn off the oven. This is because the control board acts as the brain of the oven, controlling essential functions like temperature regulation, fan operation, cooking duration, and self-cleaning cycles. If the control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between various oven components, resulting in issues like failure to engage the oven door latch or the generation of strange noises and odors. Because the board could potentially impact multiple components, it's wise to have a Sears Home Services professional evaluate the board for any faults that may necessitate replacement.

    Control Panel Replacement

    When the oven control panel malfunctions, it can exhibit various symptoms impacting the appliance's functionality. It may fail to respond, disregarding inputs or adjustments to oven mode and temperature settings. The display might display erratic readings or go completely blank. Additionally, a defective control panel might cause heating issues in the oven, resulting in uneven cooking, failure to achieve the desired temperature, or an inability to heat altogether.

    Power Supply Replacement

    When the power supply board fails, your oven won't start up. The burners won't warm, and the oven light won't illuminate. This is because the power supply in your oven links the electrical power from your home to its internal components, and it also transfers power from the control board. A malfunctioning power supply might disrupt the display on the control panel and fail to shield the oven from power fluctuations, which could harm electronic components such as the main control board. If your oven isn't powering up, it's wise to have a Sears Home Services professional check it and replace the power supply board if needed.

    What to expect when you experience a oven display not working issue

    How is the display not working problem resolved?

    Fixing most issues with the display not functioning typically means replacing either the electronic control board, control panel, or power supply. However, because there are various possible reasons, it's crucial to conduct a thorough diagnosis to solve the problem accurately. An accurate diagnosis is necessary to determine the cost of the repair.

    Advice from Sears Home Services for an oven display that is not working

    When the oven display ceases to function, there could be numerous potential causes. To avoid replacing parts needlessly, it's prudent to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests to uncover the underlying issue. Our technicians possess the expertise to diagnose various oven failures accurately.

    What to watch for with an oven display not working diagnosis

    Identifying malfunctions in modern appliances necessitates expertise and training. Attempting to diagnose oven problems without proper diagnostic methods often results in uninformed part replacements. The complexity of electronic components in appliances, particularly those developed in the last decade, adds to the challenge of testing. Consequently, DIY repairs on recent appliance models are becoming more complex.
