Depending on how the element blew, in some cases it will also ruin the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is your clock assembly. The EOC controls all the oven functions on electric ranges. There are separate relay controlled circuits on the board that control the BAKE and BROIL functions. The EOC will still display the time and the broiler may still work, but the bake feature will not. My bet, it the relay for the bake element, or a component in the bake circuit is blown. There should be a schematic diagram located inside the operator console, or on the back of the range for assistance in troubleshooting. I would recommend you inspect the EOC for any burned components or wires.

Now...there is a remote possibility you've purchased a bad element (it does happen). A resistance check from terminal to terminal should yield a high resistance in the K ohms range. Next, check the resistance between one terminal and the outer shield of the element. You should get an infinite reading. Anything else, you probably have an element that is shorted.

I hope this information is helpful to you in some way. If you have questions please let me know.

I was baking and heard a pop sound and saw a spark before the oven lost all power? What happened?


OOOPPs - not good , If you saw or heard a pop noise + spark then something blew or shorted.
If the 'loss' was quiet then a fuse or circuit breaker can blow without noise or sparks.
This oven has 4 Heating elements (2 on Grill) 2 inside oven , as you were baking it sounds like a heating element.
As this is a US model I'm assuming you are close to a SEARS somewhere, because they advertise parts made for Kenmore -- try this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Evaporative-coil-Parts/Model-867813350/0582/1610510/00007536/00001

Baking element replaced but still won't heat


you may have triped half your 220v breaker. (you should have shut it off when reparieng wire or it would have been live and zaped you) Or something in line with the wire that shorted blew out like a fuse in the range.

Oven doesn't work after replacing the bottom (baking) element


Will the clock control accept the bake and temperature request?
If so,
You will need to remove the rear panel of the range and test the bake element leads for 220 volts when the oven control is set to bake and is turned on.

Bottom baking element remains on


From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.

970-686133 Bake and Broil Element not working


Typically what happens on on these models, when the bake element breaks, it sends a surge back to the oven control (or clock) and causes it to fail also. Sounds like this is what has happened here. If the overlay (touchpad) is a separate piece, you will need to buy it also. Let me know if you have any questions.

Bake oven element blew


Could be the oven selector switch or the thermostat that failed form thhe element shorting out. You will have to have a ohm meter to check these

Electric oven does not heat up enough


I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.
