  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2009

    I had the oven on when I noticed a glo thru its window. The heating element was on fire. Was able to remove pan and turn off oven. It burnt itself out. The element then broke part. I think I will get a new non-kenmore range.

Kenmore electric oven will not bake


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

Boil element caught on fire and melted.


If element caught on fire, I would suspect stove needs cleaning. Do that then elements should not smoke for long. (I hope all moisture was removed from stove!!!)

Something went on fire behind the fan,there was a buirning smell and there was orange light coming from behind the fan. Now the oven wont heatr up


That fire and burning smell was your oven element burning out. The element is located directly behind the fan. This is why your oven will no longer heat up.

If you are going to replace the element yourself, there are some universal elements available (try eBay) much cheaper than the OEM replacement parts. You need to make sure it's the same rating though (e.g. 2000W) and is roughly the same dimensions and has the same fitting pattern.

You will also need a service manual unless you know how to get access to replace the element.

Bake element got very bright then sparked and caught fire.


Hi, Just go ahead and replace the old element. It happens with no real reason. The new element should work great.

Baking Element Caught fire


Elements wear out from the inside. Sooner or later it happens to all of them.

Yes the element failed and they will arc when they do that.Ive actually seen people hose them down with a fire extinguisher only to have it still arc. Bake elements are inexpensive and very easy to install.
