    there are two elements in the bottom drawer unit. Neither work, could the dial be malfunctioning? Is there a way to clear any signal from the self cleaning if this is a problem, or could the thermostat be bad and not allow the oven to heat?

It sounds like your heater element is burnt out. Get a volt meter.unplug the stove.take off the back,disconnet one of the wires connected to the element and test it. It should read aproximately 11 ohms if good. if a high or no readind,the element needs replacing.

Pulling lower coil and big spark came flying out of oven backwall


Have you had a chance to fix it yet ? The wire has probably come off or burned off keeping it from working. Feel the element to see if it has any rough spots in it. This will indicate it is burned up on the inside.

Oven is not working


No, the door is able to be opened, light works. No press switch works on the pannel and F 7 shows up on the scren along with time. I even can not fix or change the time. ANd, F7 goes away after pressing clear and comes back by itself after a while in both upper and lower. This is a Kenmore wall double oven. I do not know the model name, but it is not much used in teh last 5 years. Looks like a new one.
