Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
Hi! The stove top works fine, but the oven bake and broil will not heat up. Both quit working just today. Do you think it could fuses?
It sounds like your heat ignitor went out. To find out open the door and look for a 1/4" rod that starts in back and wraps to front then to back again that is it. shout door turn on oven to se if that get bright red I would start at 475 degrees. If it does not get bright red it went out and needs to be replaced. If I get model # I can get part # and manual to show you how to replace it. Or you can cal out an appliance repair man.
