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.

  • GE bad May 27, 2008

    After turning on the self clean feature went to use our nice clean ioven and it will not heat up. The broiler and range top work just fine but not the oven.



    No fault code and oven light goes on it just won't heat up.



    It is a GE XL44 and it is about 8 years old. No problems before this point.

    Same issue. We used the self oven cleaning and about 1 weej later the bottom burner won't light. I appears that the igniter element went bad. Any ideas on how to replace it? The model number is GE Profile JGS968SHSS and the over is 4 years old.

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 recently ran the self-clean option on my GE Profile JK955B0F5BB. Now when I set the touch pad to 350 degrees or more, the oven heats up to beyond 500.


That is not a valid model number, the issue is most likely the thermostat has failed. The part is about 12 dollars.

Kenmore 790 oven won't heat after self clean


Did you fully disconnect the wires when you checked continuity? If not you are checking continuity in the whole circuit. For what its worth, the self clean feature superheats the oven and often burns out elements. We see it all the time. It is one feature to never use!

The broiler element is not part of the oven temperature, it is a broiler. The oven works on the bottom element alone. If it only gets to 300'F, wither the bottom element is faulty or the thermostat is failing. As I mentioned self clean is a great way to cause problems.

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.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
