Oven will not heat up

On 9/03/07 we ran the self clean on our kenmore 9242 and now the bottom heat element doesn't work. Everything else is fine and no error codes come up. The wires and element seem to Ohm out fine.

Re: Oven will not heat up

We have the same problem. Broiler ignites fine and turns on and works fine but the bottom will not come on. AS POSTED BY: JSROCK516 This usually is an indication of a bad igniter. If this is the standard glow type igniter, it could appear as if it is working, but may not be providing enough current to open the gas valve. This is a safety feature on gas ovens. The gas valve requires a current potential of .32 to .37 amps through the igniter before it will open and allow gas to flow. This prevents gas leakage if the igniter fails to light. The reason your broiler works is probably due to the fact that the broiler gets used less and the igniter is probably in better condition. You can test this theory, if you like, by swapping the igniter for the bake and broil burners to see if the symptoms change. Or, you can simply just replace the bake igniter with a new one. Make sure you secure the power before attempting, though. You shouldn't have to turn off the gas for this. Chances are that's all it is. I hope this helps you.

I put a metal dish strainer with a plastic silverware holder in my Hotpoint/GE RB758DPWW electric oven to get it out of the way and forgot about it - it resulted in a small fire with lots of black smoke...

Cleaning off the element and the liner will not cause a problem. Turning on the element will cause smoke till all residue is gone but will cause no problem. Turn it on to self clean after getting off the large pieces will get rid of everything left. Again no problem.

Sounds like you have burned out the element. The self cleaning cycle takes the oven to a temperature that is well beyond 500'F. It stresses the element to a point where it gets faaarr tooo hot!

Self-cleaning oven doesn't work on Kenmore electric oven

I suspect the timer is involved in this process. It can be set to clean automatically. You need to set the complete time at least 2 hours after start.

My Dacor ER36D wont heat after self-cleaning. What should I do?

Okay, I'm not a service tech, but I fixed this very same problem with my double Dacor oven. My wife self cleaned the bottom oven and after that when we tried to use it, the oven would only stay at the pre-heat (135F) level. My oven is electric, so I flipped the breaker switch at the breaker box in the garage that powers the oven...I didn't want to get electricuted. I opened up the oven door to the bottom oven. Where the latch sticks out there is a grill held on by 4 screws. I took the grill off and using a flash light I found the silver looking "thingy" that is mounted behind the oven latch mechanism. There are two black wires coming from this "thingy." On the right face of the thingy there was this little red button. I pushed it in till I heard in snap back into place. I believe this silver thingy is some sort of heating safety switch. Pushing the red button back in apparently resets the switch. I put everything back and turned the power back on to the oven and it has been working just fine ever since. I hope this layman fix can help the next guy.
