When I push the bake button and hit the up arrow once it shows 350 and as it tries to engage the oven it starts clicking popping and smoke comes off the main board. I have replaced the main board and both relay boards and it still does this. I've checked the continuity of the thermostat and the baking element and both seem to be ok. Any ideas? All help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The lower relay board -appear- to be for the surface elements only.
The clock/control is for the oven....and you installed a new one of these?

Electronic oven control

*Sounds* like a bad control to me.

I've checked the continuity of the thermostat and the baking element and both seem to be ok
Both elements and oven temp sensor checked ok? Wiring and wire connectors have been checked?

jeff.
