    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.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?

It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

If your oven has no heat you'll need a new oven element, if your oven is cooking food too quickly/burning at the back then you'll need a new fan, if the oven is burning everything you'll need a new thermostat, if the oven isn't working at all check that the clock/timer hasn't been set for auto ie make sure it is on 'manual cooking'

Need a manual for kenmore electric 164D3871P002. The bottom element is bad. Thanks

Sorry, I don't have a service manual, but I can give you the general procedure for removing the bottom element (replacing is the reverse procedure).
  1. Unplug the oven
  2. Pull it away from the wall far enough so you can work behind it see what you are doing.
  3. Remove the screws from the back panel behind the oven. Sometimes there are additional plates, covers or baffles that need to be removed to let the back come off. Make notes as you go if you are concerned you may not be able to keep track of everything for reassembly. This is the hardest part of the job.
  4. Take a peek inside the oven at the back where the element attaches to the wall. If there are screws holding the element there, remove them. You will be looking for the corresponding location behind the oven in the next step.
  5. Identify the two wires going to the oven heating element terminals. They are almost always attached to the element with screws, but a few may use push-on terminals. Disconnect these wires. If push-on terminals are used, do not pull them off by pulling on the wires; grasp the terminals themselves and pull while holding the element terminals with needle-nose pliers. If necessary, polish or replace any burned terminal connectors.
  6. Remove the old element and do any needed cleanup inside the oven.
  7. Set the new element in place and reverse steps 5-1.
Almost all electric ranges have a wiring diagram somewhere in the back, sometimes on the inside of the back cover. If you find it, look for the item marked "oven heating element" or a similar name (not broiler or upper oven element, of course). There should be abbreviations next to it for the colors of the wires, with the solid color listed first followed by the stripe color (e. g., RED/GRY for a red wire with a grey stripe). This will help you confirm that you have the correct wires (it is unlikely that there will be anything else in that area of the oven except the connector for the power cord). If you get mixed up about which wire goes to which terminal on the element, don't worry, it works the same either way in this case.

The bottom element in my Kenmore oven just got red

Yes. Unplug the range, remove the screws, holding the element, remove element, disconnect wires on the ends of the element. Installation is the same in reverse. Complete model number is needed for the part# of 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.

The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.

Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:

1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.

This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.
