Question about Kenmore 30172 / 30174 / 30179 Gas Single Oven
Oven heats up but not to the setting
Get an accurate thermometer. Look on the oven control, there will be a calibration screw. It takes a while, but with small adjustments and accurate temp measurements, you can calibrate the control.

Called a Sears Tech to check it out. He found it was the control board/clock/timer. He said it was the first one he had seen go bad, and was happy I had the part number from your site, as it did not yet appear on his computer.

Yes there is something you can do. you can close the gap in temp by + or - 30degress by pressing and holding the bake button the display will change to 0 and now you can press up or down to what you want to calibrate it to. when set press start. now it's set. If your temp wonders off again you will have to replace the temp sensor. NOTE: SOME MODELS ARE DIFFERENT IN CHANGING THE CALIBRATION REFER TO THE OWNERS MANUAL IF THIS DOESN'T CHANGE YOUR CAL-SETTING

The baking element is probably the problem...

It appears your thermostat/probe 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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
