Oven continues to heat far beyond the set point
Model Number: CT130S-01 Brand:
More than 10 years
Hi, I have had this CT130 oven since new in 1993 and up until now have had zero problems! It began being sensitive to setting oven temperature as the rotary control switch would begin to run up a temp setting and then go blank lines and would have to start over at the default of 350. I replaced the Switch, p/n 412912, and now am able to set the temp easily up or down. The 'heat' light comes on and the oven continues to heat up well past the set point in a run-a-way condition -- the 'heat' light continues to remain lit. I am assuming the thermistor/thermostat is the culprit but have read several comments regarding the 'Control Board' which is no longer available and would require sending in to a repair facility. Just want a Tech opinion on the testing procedure to identify why this is happening.
