Question about Kenmore Ovens
My freely given hotpoint gas stove with self cleaning oven is stuck in preheat cycle. does anyone have any idea how to remedy the problem ? it was given to me freely and this is the first time i have ever had a gas stove with a self cleaning oven. It has digetal clock,cook time settings as well. When turning on the oven, the preheat light comes on and then it flames up high in the oven and comes out the small openings in the bottom of the oven. You can see this by turning on the light or looking into the glass window. When it does this, it smells of gas in the house. It eventualy will bake what you place in there but it seems with more baking time. Any ideas on why this is happening?

The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:
Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.
Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.
Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.
Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

Check both sides of the element for 100-120VAC. If either one is out, you won't get squat for heating - the problem is most likely with the DLB relay or the bake relay on the relay board. (The element should ohm out between 20 and 40 ohms if it's healthy.)
