I have a burned R1 resistor on the control board for a Kenmore range(Electrolux 316462807 board). What would cause that resistor to blow? I have purchased a new board for the stove, but would like to know what else to check before I install the new board ($250).

Thanks all.

Unknown. Board schematics are not available. Could be caused by another component on the board, a bad solder joint, or nothing, just wore out.

Thanks Rick. The 3 elements ohm out fine, and I can't see any wiring problems, so, I guess I'll just plug in the new board and hope?
