Question about Kenmore Ovens
Broiler works fine, when oven is turned on and temp set pre heat light comes on but oven does not heat up
Posted by Anonymous on
The broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.
If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.

SOURCE: Oven/Broiler fails th heat
Sounds like a bimetal switch is blown. first I would check SWITCH LIMIT BIMETAL next the LIMIT SWITCH-UPPER(LOCK) Too check them first trip the breaker so you don't have power to the oven, then you will have to take the oven out of the wall..next remove the top cover. then in the center-front there are two round bimetal switchs with two wires coming out of them..remove the wires and check them with an ohm meter both should have continuity across them ...if no continuity you have a bad switch. let me know what you find out..
