Set the oven to 350. Once it gets there (this takes the normal amount of time), turn it off. Wait 5 minutes. Turn it back on (i.e. set it back to 350). Display indicates it's say 320 and preheating. Relays click (sounds like the K1/K2 relays with their 51 second/8 second cycle at the link below), but oven doesn't heat up. Leave it like this 5 minutes, turn it off, turn it on again, display now indicates say 280 and preheating, but again it's lying, it's not heating. If I wait long enough and the temp gets down to ~150 (not sure of the exact temp where it decides to work, seems to vary), it'll start heating again and get back up to 350. Then the cycle repeats itself.

I found this diagram on your site and it appears to match up to my circuit board - WP74006614. I'd replace it if I could but I can't find one anywhere.

When I first started looking at the problem, I noticed burnt solder on the DBL pin on K8. I re-soldered it and things improved (it didn't work at all before - what I'm describing now is current behaviour). I then replaced K8 (original was Omron G8P-UA-006204, replaced with T9AS5D12-12). No improvement.
I then replaced the temp sensor (WP 12001656) and lower element (WPW10310258) since they seem to be the common culprits in cases like this, no improvement.

About the only things I have left to change are
1- the upper element, but it doesn't seem likely to be the culprit
2- the high-limit thermostat (WP7403P899-60). On this model is this thing a thermostat or a thermal fuse? It would make sense if a bad thermostat was telling the oven not to heat due to over-temp. But if it's a single-shot fuse, it's not the culprit. I've tested it at room temp and resistance is 0 ohms.
3- the circuit board WP74006614, but again I can't find a replacement.

I do have a circuit diagram for the main board:

If you don't think it's the upper element or high-limit thermostat, can you suggest what component on the board might be at fault? This post which I re-read often talks about a sail switch but the sequence of events doesn't seem to match up, since my fan doesn't turn on until the oven has heated up.

They seem to have WP74006612R and WP74006613R but not a 14. And both of those seem to be missing K8, some resistors, the DBL / L1 pins, etc so they don't look like a good match? Any guess as to what functions I'd lose by using one of these boards?

I'll try replacing the thermostat.

Thanks for the quick reply

Replacing the thermostat didn't fix it. After more debugging I'm back to the original problem. When it's working, there's 120V from L2 on the BAKE pin by K1 and alternately on the BROIL pin by K2 and another 120V from L1 on the DLB pin by K8, so there's 240V when measured between BAKE and DLB. When it's not working, there's no L1 appearing on the DLB pin, only L2 coming back through the element from BAKE/BROIL, so 0 V between BAKE and DLB.

Referring again to this post comment, does my circuit board WP74006614 have a sail switch? If so, what does it look like, and any idea where it is on the circuit diagram I posted originally?

Any idea what else would prevent 120V from showing up on the DLB pin, other than a bad "sail switch" or a bad board.

1. You do realize that message is about a different make and different model of appliance? Not all appliances are made the same.

2. Look to see if one is shown in your model's wiring diagram. If not, there likely isn't.
