Replacing A Range Electronic Control Board (ERC)
The Electronic Control Board (ERC) Controls most of the functions of your electric or gas range. This is where the timer/clock, Temperature, Light and many other functions are handled. If your Range is missing numbers but still functions properly a keypad on some models can be purchased separately. The instructions below will help. Also if your range does not respond to commands or will not power up read the following.
Replacing and testing the electronic control board in your range is easy. The process may vary slightly depending on models. This is similar on both gas and electric ranges. First slide your oven away from the wall so you have access to the back panel of the control. Disconnect power, unplug, and shut off gas before performing any repairs.
There are usually 2 screws on the back and sometimes 3 or 4 screws on the front. The screws in the front are usually hidden underneath the console. Remove these screws. You will have access to the control module and also the Relay Control Board if your range is equipped with this.
The ERC may have a keypad attached to the control. The keypad usually has adhesive securing it in place. This can be removed with a putty knife. Slide the putty knife between the control and the keypad and carefully work your way around it. Install the keypad to the new control. There is usually enough adhesive to resecure the keypad. Place the control into position aligning screw holes. Reinstall 4 screws. Connect all wires. Replace back panel by aligning screw holes. Reinstall 2 screws. Turn gas and power back on and slide into position. The electronic control board repairs common problems in ovens, ranges, double ovens, downdrafts.
