I have a Kenmore double oven and the upper oven heating element is not working - it started on fire and the "burnt out". The oven is not operational - how much would it cost to replace it vs getting new oven. (27" double electric with Model # 911 4832595)

Hello, Sounds to me like you just need replace the heating element. Should be just a matter of 2 screws and carefully pulling the element out. Make sure the power is off prior to servicing. The element should cost no more then $40 so this oven is worth fixing. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

I have a Maytag double oven Model # MER6757BAS. On the upper oven I had to replace the broiler element which was not a problem at all. The lower element works but the upper element does not. Set to broil...


Was the original broil element broken or burnt?
Did you reuse the original spacers to ensure the new element is not touching the oven interior?
1) To determine if the broil element has burned out, use a multimeter to test the element for continuity. If the broil element does not have continuity, replace it. (Perform this test, even on a brand new element).
2) If element tests OK, then reinstall, and test continuity of the element wires themselves.
It really comes down to these two items. Element or wires.

Have you checked the heating element supply voltage with a VOM? And have you checked for a popped/burned fuse to the bake element?

Oven takes 20 minutes to fully heat on bake - Kenmore oven plt095-2


if its a gas model most of the time you will have a weak oven ignitor. if an electric,check to see if the bake element gets hot ,some ovens will bake with upper and lower elements so if only the upper works it will take much longer to pre-heat.good luck!

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,
