Oven not heating

Hi, hope you can help me with this one. The oven is suddenly not heating. It's dead. All other functions seem fine. I press 'bake' then 'start' and the normal couple of clicks happen, but the ignitor doesn't heat, thus, no gas. No gas, no Christmas cookies. The broiler is fine. There is no error message displayed. I unplugged/replugged it several times hoping that would do something; no luck. Where do I start?? Thanks for any advise. If you fix the problem I'll send you some cookies!

Re: oven not heating

Nzirons, Most likely, the bake igniter is shorted out and it has to be replaced. The part number for the igniter is WB2X9154.You can buy it for $60.00 to $80.00. If you are handy and have the right tools (Philips #1 and straight 1/4" screwdrivers, 1/4" and 5/16" nut drivers or socket wrenches, wire cutter and wire stripper) you probably can do it yourself. I would recommend to call a local appliance tech. just because of the safety issue. If you are going to do it yourself, let me know and I can help you with step by step instructions. Gendos

If it were a furnace, I would say it was a thermo coupler, but on the stove it is called a thermostat. If it goes bad, it will stop the heat after a few minutes, because it can not sent the right signal to the brain. Look at the web site ereplacments and maybe someone has also had this problem with this unit. Parts can be purchased then at the web site. It is what I did for a washer and fridge. Hope this helps.

Kenmore electric range model 790 oven stopped functioning, both broiler and bake. however, oven light still comes on.

I believe there is a thermal fuse (also called a TCO or Thermal Cut-Out) located either on the back of the oven, or between the top of the oven and the cooktop that has opened up. Did this happen after running a self-clean cycle?

How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

Hope this would help you .

God Bless.

You could very well have an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board problem. There two separate circuits that control the oven BAKE and BROIL functions. If you have replaced the BAKE element, and have ensured it connected properly, the only other component that controls that function, is the EOC. If you post back with your complete model number, I can double check to make sure. The model number will be located on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door opening or lower drawer opening. The reason I need to confirm is because some ranges have a separate relay control board.
