Question about Kenmore 30 in. Electric Self Clean Drop-In Range
Cleaning oven for two hours cracks and burns floor of oven, have changed the oven floor twice for this reason. Tried again last night for two hours cleaning time and it damaged the new oven floor again.
They say you need to make sure you wipe up all the mess off the oven base before you do self cleaning. Don't scrub it, just use a paper towel to clean up all the crumbs as these burn and cause excess heat. However I have not seen one of these panels that wasn't burnt. It just doesn't work good.

It's easier to eliminate the element.You can do this two ways;first thing,remove power from unit.Unplug it and you know for sure power is off.Inside the oven you can get to the wiring on element by removing the two screws on the back wall that holds the bracket to the wall.(this works for both elements)Pull the element out and you will see the wires(2).They will be either screwed on or connected with spade clips which pull on/off.Remove at least one wire and use your meter,set on ohms, put a meter lead on each element connector,you should read continuity.If you don't the element is bad,replace it.Give the elements a good visual inspection first,some times you can see where the element burnt out.The other way to get to the wiring by pulling the back panel off the stove.Hope this helps.

Hey- Disconnect power. pull back cover to access wires for element. Re-connect wires and loosely re-position insulation. Reinstall back cover and chk operation.- Hope this helps- ED

Hello- Yes it can be fixed- first, make sure outlet is not damaged. If it is, it will need to be replaced. Next, plug is wired into a terminal block on back of unit. With care, this cord is easy to replace. And safer than it was before. A loose plug, or wire caused the fireworks. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. -Thanks- ED
