SOURCE: Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.

When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

SOURCE: Oven doesn't reach temperature setting

It could be the plug/receptacle that the element plugs into. It could also be that the elements have separate thermostats and that the one for the lower element is bad. If you can post the model number I can look at the electrical schematic and know for sure if it has one or two thermostats.

SOURCE: kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat

if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,
ttfn

Bottom oven isn't heating to desired temp. Considering swapping the heating elements to see if one is faulty - thoughts?


try thermostat first. verify heating elements operational, if so check if tstats are same. swap if so, If not jump out tstat and see if higher temp achieved.

Kenmore 7909445 oven not reaching specified temperature?


The User's Manual says that the minimum temperatures for most settings is 170F. If those are also the defaults, the oven controls might have forgotten their settings and might need to be reset. If resetting the controls doesn't work, you might want to try checking the temperature sensor; sensors go more frequently than control panels do. I have included a link to the User's Manual I found.

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?


Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

Heating element not working


When cleaning the oven you got to be very careful because there's a little piece of copper in the back it looks like a little copper wire with a bare copper wire on it that is usually a thermostat it's on the back wall of the appliance inside the oven now you have a heating element on top and bottom you said that one of them stopped workin now you have a heating element on top and bottom you said that one of them stop working when you were cleaning the oven could you may have hit it moved it enough to disconnect it at the connection that comes out of the back of the oven to the inside of the oven to the element check and see if the two wires coming out of the back of the inside to the element are disconnected usually it's a Phillips head screwdriver now if you broke one of those wires needs to be reattached before you do any kind of work on that element or anything you should always unplug your oven from the wall the electrical outlet unplug it to be safe now if your thermostat which is that wir thermostat which is that wire copper wire looking thing coming out and see me on the back wall of the inside of the oven it's on a clip if you moved or bent that in any way that could also cause you thermostat which is that wire copper wire looking thing coming out and ceiling on the back wall of the inside of the oven it's on a clip if you moved or bent that in any way that could also cause your temperature to be off you really don't want to have to touch that if you don't have to I hope that helped you be safe and good luck

My Kenmore Elite oven will take over an hour to preheat to 350 degrees and never does get done preheating.


There's a few things that can cause this.

1. Check to see if the both that Bake and Broil elements (burners) are heating up. Check the Broil element in Broil mode.

- during pre-heat the Broil element gets cycled on and off for short time durations to speed up the heating. If the Bake element is not working, then the oven will heat, but very slowly and never reach high temperature.

2. If the elements are both working, then it's possible that you have a bad temperature sensor.

- this is a temperature dependent resistance device that should measure 1080 ohms at 70 deg F (room temp).

3. If #1 and #2 are ok, then the problem is with your oven clock/control unit. We rebuild these at fixyourboard.com.

Oven doesn't go on.


Hi.


If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.


If the part that is not heating is only one element, then you may need to replace the element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.
In this case, selecting only baking or only broiling (depending on what element is faulty), the oven will work normally.

If the oven is a gas oven, then you have no element. In that case if the oven burners are working, replace the temperature sensor.

If replacing the temperature sensor does not help, then replace the oven electronic control.

Elements do not heat to proper settings


If both elements are not working properly then the problem is either the temperature probe or the control board.

Replace the temp probe first.
