Question about Kenmore 90102 / 90104 Electric Kitchen Range
The time for the oven to reach the selected temp and changed. It was working fine up until yesterday, but now it takes forever for the oven to reach temperature. Do I need to replace the burner coil?
SOURCE: Preheat taking long time
If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

SOURCE: oven quit working
Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.
Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.
You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.
The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.
Please rate and god bless:)

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Yes, one side of a double pole circuit breaker could go bad, but unless you live in a really old house it isn't likely. Instead of just replacing the circuit breaker, $30+, you might want to check with your neighbors and borrow a multimeter to check the outlet to see if you have 120 volts on each leg of your outlet (which makes up the 240 volts you need). If you have 120 volts on each leg then your breaker and outlet are functioning.
Some ranges have an internal fuse that controls the heating elements. Suggest you go to www.searspartsdirect.com and plug in the model # off the equipment id tag (on rear panel or on oven frame) and check to see if there is a fuse or fuseable link.
