Well I think you might be generalizing a bit. I started as an electronic tech and I can tell you there are big differences in computer boards as opposed to appliance boards. Computer circuitry handles low voltage applications and the components are kept in clean well ventilated boxes. The appliance boards have to handle high voltages through their relays and are subjected to temperature extremes and greasy dusty enviroments. The main failures on these appliance boards are the relays , the only moving part which computers don't have. As for the reliability of boards manufactured for the computer industry you should look at the failure rate of the XBox 360, motherboard related issues with poor manufacturing processes. I fix these consoles as well as appliances and by far have seen more of these then the PS3 by about 10 to 1 as for the Wii I have yet to see any. What does that tell you?
Look I said my thing and thats the way I see it, did not mean the all bold text do not
know what happened very sorry about that, I may not be a appliance tech in a daily
sense but I have been working on computers for years and well vented and clean working
environment for motherboards is hog wash, a oven control board from what I see is
located above in a much better location 99% of the time, your online posting here and
anyone else reading this open your pc and then take a look in your control board area
and you tell me? dust common man!
Just take a look at where yours is right now, and do not use a laptop as an example.
Please never use Microsoft as an example for anything, I would not be surprised the few
appliance manufactures left running the show got their ideas in the first place from MS.
you mention relay, that's right that is what they are there for, these boards are not
carrying anything substantial they are nothing but a very very weak tiny motherboard
with a scary name and a big price tag part that's all, and a cash generator for bloated
You want to see hot working environment open up my sons gaming computer we built last
year after he has been playing for a couple of hours and it has 4 fans going none stop
that board could handle a states worth of ovens at the same time if it had to
Think I got something Wrong?
I challenge anybody to justify the replacement control board prices or even try to
compare them to a 49.00 motherboard retail, and since most of these Oven boards cost
over 200 plus, much less a 100 mother board and that' retail, and see what that does,
let me tell you a ton more operations then bake up, bake down and the time, Its a joke
Know what? I am surprised you even took a shot at trying to justify that, and please
explain where all that crazy markup profit IS going? I would like to know and I'm sure I am
I read my post yesterday and sat back and realized I was spending over 750.00 with tax
on ovens in the last 3 yrs and canceled the new one today that's insane when I got a
washing machine belt Friday I know the guy pretty good over there he told me to cancel
that was nuts, they buy used ovens and will most likely come across a board in the next
few weeks for around 50.00, so we will just have to live with 350 oven temp max for now.
at least I know I am not playing the fool anymore.
