Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The bottom part (the bake mode) stop working. The top part (the broiler) comes on instead of the bottom part without having it set on the broiler mode. So, I turn the oven to bake a cake and the bake mode doesn't work. The broiler comes on. It took me 2h to bake a cake using just the top part (the broiler) :(( Thanks
Trying to better define the problem....
Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)
To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?
