Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Kenmore glass top oven. Autonettoyant ultra brake. I purchased it second hand from a family who moved to a new city. It came with the house that they had purchased two years prior to that. Not sure of the year. All 5 elements on stove will not generate heat when turned on. All lights and clock work. It does say PF, power failure beside the clock. The stove and oven worked just the day before, what should I do? This single mom needs to bake her sons birthday cake for his 6 th birthday :)

SOURCE: I have a GE Single Wall electric

First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Ultra Bake Stove, we had a power

PF is usually power failure.
If "PF" appears at any other time, a power failure occurred. To remove "PF"and to reset the clock, press STOP/CLEAR.

Unplug the unit for half an hour or so to see if it will reset.
If not try to get into the diagnostics so you can see if there is a stored
error code

Unable to remove light cover inside oven


Hi,

I'm not familiar with that oven model, but as I have had a similar issue with my Neff oven light, I thought I would give you the benefit of what I had discovered. The light cover in my oven is a round, thick glass cover. The hand book has a graphic showing that the cover is simply twisted with one hand in an anti-clockwise direction as viewed straight onto the cover. No way! The first issue is that the lamp housing is right in a tight corner and getting sufficient grip on the cover is tricky. I put rubber gloves on to increase the grip and resorted to using two hands to exert as much force as I could manage, but it only moved a small amount. I think the movement was only the entire lamp housing moving in the oven wall, rather than any movement of the cover. I tried warming up the oven (not too hot) in the hope that the cover might release due to expansion, but no go. I then wondered if cooking grease / deposits and bonded the cover to the holder; although it appeared reasonable clear. This appears to have been the issue as I applied WD40 to the seam where the glass meets with the lamp housing and left it for a few minutes. It needed a second application, but eventually came free. On inspection, there was only a minor 'varnish' on the glass that appeared to have prevented the two parts from moving. Using WD40 weakened the bond eventually, but it also made the glass incredibly slippery, so gripping the glass cover after application is difficult. I used the rubber gloves and wiped the glass well to remove any residual WD40 prior to attempting to twist the glass cover off.

No manual to Kenmore electric oven 8+ years old


if the glass bulb cover has a 'wire' across it that's the spring clip that holds it in place.pull clip down or aside to remove cover,unscrew bulb as you would any other.if it doesn't have aforementioned clip.try to rotate cover counterclockwise to disengage 'ears' from 'slots',similar to the the way a blender fits the base.look under cook-top,above oven door for the lock lever that must be pulled out [engaged] for self clean to work.

Glass top and oven 7 months old still has the new oven smell


possible that the insulation that surrounds your oven cavity has yet to fully cure, i would run a clean mode, this will get the unit to max temp fro 3 hours, fully curing any insulaton for sure
