My Amana double wall oven died.

Model: AEW3630DDB

Panel is completely dark as if no power is getting to the unit. No buttons or lights work, not even interior oven lights.

Circuit breaker in house circuit breaker panel is good and there is power getting to the ovens.

I have reset the breaker in the home breaker panel but that didn't change anything.

I tested the thermal fuse and it seems ok but I am not sure if it fails open or fails closed?

I think this is the thermal fuse: Amana Oven High Limit Thermostat 74008265

Is there another fuse somewhere in this unit?

Is a new circuit board the next step?

I think this it the circuit board: Amana Oven Main Control Board WP74008930

I know it is an old oven but this thing only gets used once a year.

Thanks much

Brian

Low resistance?

Should be 0 resistence, watch the video below on how to properly ohm test it.

Make sure NO POWER IS ON when ohm testing, turn the breaker off to your unit!

My thermal fuse looks similar to the one shown above but it has two prongs on the left and two on the right

...the top to prongs had 0.1 ohms of resistance

...the bottom two prongs had 0.4 ohms of resistance

I gather this means I should order a new thermal fuse?

0.1 and 0.4 is close enough to 0, so its fine.

On the clock oven control board, look for L or L1 and then look for N and read what voltage you get across those two. If 120 volts, then your clock oven control board is bad, and yes you'd need to order it.

Yes, the link you posted to it above is correct: Main Control Board WP74008930
