SOURCE: kenmore oven: glass dome for interior light removal

Hopefully someone answered your question by now. If not, the glass bulb cover sticks sometimes, but it does turn counterclockwise. Be firm with it, let it know who's boss. Once you've removed it, you can replace the 40 watt appliance bulb. (The manual suggests you unplug the range or disconnect power for your safety). Good luck.

Try spraying WD40 onto the glass and bulb holder, try to screw the bulb cover back on first, and then try to unscrew i, it may help if you grasp it with a cloth or similar as you try to unscrew it

SOURCE: Kenmore Pro: top oven element has one hot leg.

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.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

HOW DO I INSTALL BROILER UNIT IN THE UPPER OVEN?


pull the oven out and remove the mains plug. On the rear of the appliance you should see a cover that would be where the back of the element is. Remove the cover and you will see two electrical contacts and two screws or bolts that hold the element to the back of the oven. Remove the wires and then remove the element. Replace with new element, tighten the wires firmly whilst supporting the element but don't over tighten. Some have push on tags and they are susceptible to arcing and burning off where the wire enters the connector. If this has happened to yours, you may not need a new element, but make sure you use heavy duty STEEL crimp connectors.

A quick look at the part confirms my educated guess based on GE broil elements.

Flavel milano e60 how to fit new fan oven element that is riveted


That is complete RUBBISH the screws are accessible from the rear of the oven. At the back remove the screws holding the plate and you will see the element housing. Remove the two screws and the spade connections. Get someone to hold the new element in place for you and attached the screws. Fiddly job so be patient. Connect the spade connections and replace all plates front and rear. Should be the job!!! Someone hold the element in the cooker whilst someone connects at the back. Whatever you do, DON'T TAKE A DRILL TO YOUR COOKER!!

I have a Thermodor SCD302ZP Double Convention Oven. Does the lower heating element come out from the front of oven or do you need to gain access to rear in order to test/replace it? I removed the...


that model number doesn't come up.first make sure the power is off to the machine,you have 240 volts going to that element,all the thermodor ovens i worked on come out from the front,there should be two phillips screws holding it in place,remove the screws and pull the element forwards,some of them you have to lift the element up the end that goes through the wall is bent up so the wires don't hit the metal wall behind it.on some the wires are very short so don't be surprised if they pop into the hole on you,try to hold it with a needle nose,have the other element in there and stick the wire right on the new element so you don't loose the wire into the hole,if that happens you might have to pull the oven and remove the back panel.good luck and i hope this helps you

Bread (biscuits/rolls) burn on top and raw on bottom.


there are two elements in the oven one on top..one on bottom...the top one is also used for broil functions...the lower element may have burned out...to remove it there will be a screw holding a plate with the lower element attached to it...you may also need to turn the oven around and in the back there may be a cover where the electrical connections are...you may need to unscreww 2 screws to remove the element...if you have a multitester or can get one ..you'll want to check the resistance of the element..it will be a low value(not sure what value exactly). If it won't give a reading or shows nothing on the meter then you'll need to replace the element...you can get elements at appliance parts stores or on the internet..you can even try an appliance repair shop for parts.

I need to replace the bottom element in my oven


You need to check the heating element for continuity and the thermistor for continuity. Use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check. The element should not be any reading over 24 ohms for a 220-250V supply and not over 12 ohms for a 110Vac supply. A good tip is to take digital photos of the job before starting on removing and testing wiring etc so that you can refer back to it if you have to replace any items or forget which wires attach to any particular terminal etc.

To test and replace the element:

  1. Turning off the mains power to the oven.
  2. Remove the lower back panel. Fan assisted ovens will have a coiled 2 or 3 turn element around the outside of the fan.
  3. Remove the 2 power connectors to the grill element if one is fitted.
  4. Check the element resistance reading on the main oven heating element and not the grill element.
  5. The thermistor or fusible link is located on top of the oven cavity if fitted and has two wires attached to it - most likely to be red and black or both white wires.
  6. Remove the earthing wire to the main oven heating element screw terminal.
  7. Unscrew the grill element securing screws(s) - there will be 1 or 2 depending on the element fitted to your oven. Do this from inside the oven cavity itself.
  8. Refit the new element (make sure it has the same mounting screw holes as the one you want to remove) then secure it.
  9. Reconnect the earthing wire to the element screw post.
  10. Make sure that neither of the element tags touch the chassis - check with a continuity tester of ohm meter and adjust if required.
  11. Reconnect the power cables to the main oven heating element.
  12. Reconnect the power cables to the grill element if one is fitted.
  13. Reconnect the power and check that the element works correctly.
  14. Disconnect the mains power again and replace the rear panel(s).
  15. Reconnect the mains power and recheck that the oven, and if appropriate the grill, functions correctly.

Oven element replacement- Simpson eziset electric


hiya
firstly make sure the power is isolated before removing any panels.
sometimes the element will just screw out from the inside of the oven and should pull through into the oven compartment with the wires attached, simply remove the wires, replace the element and refit any panels.

hope this helps

please dnt forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Double oven / convection not working


It is likely that the convection element is burned out and needs to be replaced. If all other functions are working then this is the place to start. Teh back panel inside of the oven can be removed by removing the 4 visible philips screws on it. The element should look smooth and round, if not then it needs to be replaced. Be sure to turn power off to the oven before replacing it. Remove the screws that fasten the element to the back wall and gently pull the element away from the wall an inch or so. the wires will be exposed and can be unclipped from the element do not let them fall inside of the back of the oven or you will have to remove the oven from the wall to get at the back panel. Install the new element in the reverse procedure. If the element looks good then it will have to be tested with a multimeter to verify that it is still good before proceeding to check the selector switch for burn marks.
