Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Bake element caught on fire, Kenmore 911.9344190 electric range

The heating element was extreamly red hot and sparking at the partial break in the element. Shutting the oven off using the oven thermostat knob did not stop the sparking. I had to shut off the range at the breaker. I though turning the oven knob to off would stop electricity from getting to the element. If it didn't does that mean replacing the element will not fix the problem? Is their always electricty going through the element? If so, replacing the element should get me back in business.

The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.

Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:

1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.

This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.

It appears your ERC/CLOCK has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

SOURCE: Kenmore electric range 790.91011200 When set in

yes. you can do a simple continuity test to be sure (on the broil) element, but you're gonna spend at least 20 dollars on a volt/ohm meter. if you have one already, you're in luck. just remove the element and test the prongs for continuity (usually setting RX1). more than likely the element just needs to be replaced

You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

After temp is set bottom oven will not heat up to desired temp


you probably have a burnt out or shorted out lower bake element in you r lower oven. it sometimes will actually break apart or look like it sparked thru the black tubular section. it is common and will cause no heat during the bake cycle.
you could try to do a broil and see if it gets hot and that would let you know the control is ok and just needs the lower bake element.

All 4 stove burner coils only work partially


You should check electricity coming to the range. On the back of the range you will find small square cover which cover power cord connections. Be very careful not be shot by electricity. It should be 240V(between red and black wire) and 120V (between red and white and also black and white wire). If it is than you have a shortage or some broken wire inside the stove.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
