range will not turn on. Is there a fuse on this model. Range was turned off at the breaker manually because of power surges and low voltage
For model number acr4503SFW3
Hello Phil, Thank you for your inquiry. We have researched the model number you have provided, and the safety thermostat acts like a thermal fuse and will cause the stove to shut down if it overheats. We also recommend checking the terminal block, the oven sensor and the wiring. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you. Check the wiring for any visible damage. Good luck with your repair.

How do you test the safety thermostat to see if it is functioning for the oven? what ohm reading?
For model number ymer8700ds1
Hello Daryl, thank you for reaching out. Testing the safety thermostat, part number FIX11740991 is an easy job. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080–1090 ohms at room temperature. We hope this helps!

oven wouldn't heat / bake or broil
remove back panel , remove thermostat where the blue and red wire join together . blue (broil) red (bake) . The thermostat burned out because of a bad electronic board that was caused when using the self clean. i also replace the board with a refurbished board and the range is working like new. won't use self clean again, it gets too hot.
