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.

SOURCE: Oven not about 100 deg. below temperature setting

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore drop-in electric range plug melted

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

Will just replacing the oven element fix my Kenmore model 911.955879range oven? It sparked, broke in two and a white flame continued going around the element, wouldn't stop I had to shut breaker off.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Good for you - turning off the breaker.

You have a older oven. Usually there is a spark or crack in the oven element. In your case the element was so embrittled it broke into 2 pieces.

Before you use the top range burners to be on the safe side you need to disconnect the oven element. You may have damaged the oven control board to where it is locked into power for the oven.

25713262-01ium3bsyoj5ql4fhv4kpwvp-4-0.jpg 1.) Remove the bottom drawer to reduce weight.
2.) Put a rug on the floor in front of the oven, so when you pull the oven out it does not scratch the floor.
3.) Pull the oven out so you can get behind it.
4.) Unplug the unit.
5.) Remove the back bottom cover.
6.) Disconnect the heating element and remove from oven.
7.) Rap the two loose element connections in the back with electrical tape.
8.) Follow the element loose connection to the control board at the top. Disconnect at the oven control board.
9.) Inspect the loose wiring from the control board to the heating element for burns or melting.
10.) Plug the oven back in and turn on the range burners.

The part number for the oven element is WB44T10014. Sears wants about $95.00 for this part. Search the internet for this part number and get it for about $28.00.

Your oven control board may have become damaged. Recently I replace one for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00. I got a remanufactured board over the internet for $30.00.

Get back to me and let me know what is going on.

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.

My oven is burning my baked goods, but shows the right temp with a thermometer. Do I have to turn the dial to broil and then back to the desired temp? Even if the rack is in the middle, everything burns....


If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.

The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all.
The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.

If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.

to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.

If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.

Oven has been cleaning for hours and won't turn off


You will find that the cleaning cycle takes more than 3 hours. Leave it for at least twice that long before you get concerned. When the cleaning is done and the oven is cool it will unlock

Cleaning melted plastic from oven


i found this on the internet..
For a regular electric oven: Place a bag of ice directly on the melted plastic to chill it and make it more brittle. Then carefully, using a razor-blade scraper, lift off the puddle ofplastic. This procedure will not hurt an interior porcelain finish. For a regular gas oven: First turn off the gas..

Self clean burnout


1758, have the technician start with the terminal block. This is where the power is hooked to the range. Check for loose connections, cracks, burnt wires. Are you sure the board and relays are burnt out? Have him check the thermal disk that sits on top of the oven cavity. If this is open, no heat. In the past I had to move or elevate these TCO's away from the vent. I would use two small nuts to elevate it from the oven body to prevent it opening during cleaning. These are just a couple of things to check. Catriver...post back.
