Question about Stoves 1100DFSID Kitchen Range
Typically, when setting my oven, it will beep four times when the correct temperature is reached and a little pot will display on the control panel. Currently, my stove will beep four times after being on for a minute or so, before the temperature is reached. It then does not cycle on and off. Both the bottom and top element still function. The broiler is working fine although when used, it too will beep four times after being on for a brief period of time. This does not appear to affect its operation.
This is a very generic question. If it is an old electric range with mechanical controls, the thermostat may not be cycling properly. Most new electric ranges use electronic sensors which send a signal to a board. This signal changes as the temperature changes. Technically, the resistance of the sensor changes with the temperature and that resistance is the input for the circuit board. The circuit board then adjusts the temperature according to the signal it is receiving from the sensor. A good technician should be able to check the resistance in the sensor to see if it is within acceptable range. If the sensor is good, they would be able to troubleshoot the board or other controls.

Itsounds like the problem is in the thermo-couple. This is the "sensor" that monitors the heat in the oven and conveys information to the eletronic controller.
