    Default F1, then F3..now broiler won't shut off

    Our 15 year old double oven, RB770PXYB, got an F1 and then F3 the other day. We had noticed that the broiler had come on while we were doing normal baking. We have to shut the breaker off to eventually shut it down. When we start up again, and try to bake, the broiler comes on and will basically stay on, even though we don't see the F1 or F3 error anymore.

    Is this going to be the whole touch pad replacement thing? I can't even find this model number on whirlpool's site anymore. If I call a service man to fix this, I'm guessing $200-$300? or more?

    We want to remodel the kitchen in the next 2-3 years, so I"m wondering if I should just bite it now and fork out the $1500. If the repair will be under $300, I'd rather do that for now.

    Any ideas on how to proceed with this? I'm all for replacing the part myself if I could find some instruction somewhere.

    Thx for reading!

    I ended up finding my circuit board, atleast it looks like it exactly.

    Think I should just replace this part myself?

    I would first check to make sure your broil element was not grounding out causing this to always come on when power to your double oven is on.

    You would need to turn off your house breaker to your oven and check for continuity with an ohm meter between each of your 2 broil element terminals and ground.

    Hi Jake! Thanks for replying so quickly.

    While I try to get my hands on an ohm meter from a neighbor, thought I'd give you some up-to-date info, in case it changes the task at hand.

    Today, when I turned the oven on (so we could bake something real quick), the broiler did come on again. However, after 10 minutes or so(perhaps when wife had hit the 'off' button), the broiler had shut off and there was an F1 error displayed. This is alittle different than yesterday, when broiler wouldn't shut off and no error displayed.

    Should I still proceed with the broiler element check, or does this sound like the board is indeed bad?

    Thx again!
    Chet

    Btw, is there a diagram on how to check this once I get the ohm meter? Do I need to expose the back of the circuit board for this or take anything apart? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I couldn't find any diagrams on the site(s).

    Ok, If you had an F1 show up in the display, its says you will need a new control board, you can order it from that part link above you posted, but if your range is 15 years old, other parts are wearing out as well, just weigh the pro's and con's about putting $200 plus into a 15 year old range.

    Here is a help link about ohming your elements, you may have to pull the oven out away from the wall to get access from the very back:

    Hi Jake!

    I received my control board, and was wondering if you had the service repair model for this, in case I run into difficulty.

    Thanks,
