I got the wiring diagram for the oven online.

I turned off the power and removed the screws on th out sides of the top of the oven (at the control panel) and the screws underneath the front of the control panel (one on each side toward the outside)

I found where power to the oven and broiler elements would be applied.

I verified continuity through the elements, and that voltage was available to the control board.

I then found that voltage was not applied to the elements when they were turned on.

I verified that the thermocouple controlling temperature worked by measuring the output voltage and verifying that it increased when the thrermocouple was heated with a hair dryer.

Since all the inputs to the board (known as "Clock w/Overlay") were good, the board must be bad.

I ordered the board (partselect had the best price).

I removed the four screws holding the board, and removed the push on wiring connections.

I reversed the above process for re-assembly. The only slight complication was that the new board had one additional connection point available that was not on the old board. You don't use it. The new board fits a couple different models.

Turned the power on, then the oven on, then the broiler on, everything worked.
