Whirlpool YWFE38ILVQ0 charred/burned out wires on board
Model Number: YWFE38ILVQ0 Brand:
1 - 5 years
My broiler element recently stopped working. Thinking it was the element itself, I took it out and checked for cracks and continuity. No cracks, and the multimeter showed continuity.
After taking off the back, I see obvious evidence of a burning or flare-up on one of the connectors of the control board (see pics). One of these wires leads to one broiler element connector. I am not certain of the function of the one below it, also charred.
As a total rookie to this sort of thing, I am wondering of this is an obvious control board issue, or if it is the wires themselves which caused this damage and lack of function. Everything else seems to be working--as far as I know, only the broiler is dead. The hidden bake element still heats up, along with the stovetop elements.
Thanks for any input.
