Question about Kenmore Ovens
This is the second time the problem has occurred. I replaced teh control unit partWB27K5201R and it worked once for 10 munites. now it won't stay ignited, if at all.
Most likely its the EOC (electronic oven control), it needs to be replaced. If you self cleaned the oven a lot the very high heat generated fatigues computers in modern ovens.

My bad, yours is an oven.
I found the Owner Manual, but could not find the Installation Manual. Do you have it, and does it say to hook the oven to a GFI protected power source?
Just because of the way the electronics work in the oven, and the way the electronics work in the GFI, I don't think that they work together. The oven is a permanent appliance, so I don't know of any reason it would need it.
How long have you had this oven installed, and connected to the GFI? Has anything changed, like you washed the oven down and got water inside it. Is a non GFI circuit available nearby where you could wire the oven?
Let me know what you find. It's been awhile since I looked at a new Electrical Code (NEC) book, and even with that, you local ordinances can over ride the NEC.

Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian

Tips for a great answer:
The oven temperature sensor on your Kenmore range is a one-piece unit that mounts to the rear oven wall with a mounting plate. The sensor is not difficult to change. You will need to dismantle the rear panel from the oven to access the mounting plate. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement sensors. It is a good idea to take the old sensor with you along with the model number of your oven. This way you will be sure to get the correct replacement sensor for your oven.
Unplug the Kenmore oven power cord from the wall outlet. Move the oven range away from the wall so that you can access the back of the unit. (Ask a friend to assist you to move the oven. if necessary.) The oven may use an anti-tip bracket on one of the rear legs. Push the oven toward the back wall to release the leg from the bracket in the floor. Tilt the back of the oven toward you, and pull the oven forward.
Remove the screws that secure the back panel to the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the back panel away from the unit and set the panel out of the work area.
Locate the mounting plate for the oven temperature sensor on the upper right side of the back of the oven. There will be a single wire coming from the back of the mounting plate and the wire mounts to a clip.
Follow the wire to the connector on the other end. Pull the connector on the wire to disconnect the wire from the wiring harness.
Remove the two screws that secure the mounting plate to the rear of the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the temperature sensor straight out of the oven. Unclip the sensor wire from the mounting clip.
Take the oven temperature sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Insert the sensor end of the temperature sensor through the hole in the back of the oven. Slide the sensor all the way until the sensor mounting plate is flush against the oven. Secure the sensor with the two mounting screws.
Connect the sensor wire to the connector by pushing the connector until it locks in place. Snap the wire inside the retaining clip.
Place the back panel back over the rear of the oven and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Slide the Kenmore oven back into its working position and plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
