Oven comes up to temp, but elements shut down periodically while cooking. Thermostat reads the set point/ oven temp, untill setpoint is readjusted. There appears to be power coming from the relays,but elements won't heat up when this occurs. Is there a thermal cut-out that could be possibly acting up, possibly need a new control pannel, or relay board?

Re: kenmore wall oven model 911.4088816
I believe this oven was designed to reach a set temp and then interm shutdown to keep that set temp..If oven elements turn back on when temp is raised higher than previous temp ..then there is a good chance its working properly.this is a saftey feature to keep elements on stove from overheating..

The Fan has ,in most cases, two functions - to maintain the oven temp and to clear any condensate or smoke coming from items being cooked. If your oven is over heating it could be the thermostat sensor faulty and giving a faulty reading to the fan. If you set you oven at 350F then sensors control the heat by kicking the heating elements off and in some models and makes the fan aids cool down. Make sure it is at a temperature that would trigger the fan to cool it down. It mostly relies on the regulation of the heating elements to control the temp. Only if it were to get hotter than the elements kicking off can control should the fan kick on. Not being at the site and actually seeing the stove it is hard to determine but if the fan is working every where else it should work when the oven is heating. Again check and see if there is a seperate sensor that monitors the temp of the over and triggers the fan. Not much help but that's where I would look first. Hope this was of some help.

YES this is normal it is how it regulates temp by cycleing the elements ......................Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob
Sears Kenmore Electric Wall OVen, Mod.#9114012192 purchased in 1993. Set oven for 425 degrees, reaches set temperature, stays on about 10 minutes and temp. display goes out and oven starts cooling down. Will not stay on desired temp.to cook. Can you tell me what my problem is? Thanks. Doug.
If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
