Kenmore wall oven model 911.4088816

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..

I have a Kenmore model 911.4658816 and the oven does keep a accurate temp. if set to 200 degrees for example it may only go to 180 or so. baking does not workout as items are always uncooked in the middle....

@00 or 180, does not spoil cooking. If that is your only problem, then set oven to 220 or 230 with your thermostat in the oven. Then compare the reading in the oven to the one on the control panel.
You can then set the stat on the control panel to higher or lower, to compensate for the difference.
A new stat might not make that much difference as other issues might be involved.

Oven takes forever to preheat

The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

Our kenmore elite oven will not come on now, the digital display works fine, but the element inside the oven, both the broiler and the bottom, will not come on. took a voltage reading at the element and...

This sounds like an oven thermostat problem. Try checking the oven control knob for voltage as you turn up the temperature as well. There may simply be a failure to pass voltage at the contact points and a temp control may solve the problem.

Oven does not maintain a consistent temperature

Is this oven gas or electric? If it is gas then it can be normal to see 30 to 50 degrees difference in tempature. The tempature in a gas oven works on the average tempature. For example: The oven tempature may rise all the way up to 370 degrees. Then the burner will shut off. And then the tempature can drop all the way to 330 degrees. Then take 330 and add that to 370 then divide that number by two and the average tempature will be 350. If your oven is electric then the tempature should be much more consistant but can have a 10 to 15 degree variance. Also the standard oven tempature guage that you put in the oven or even the temp guage built into the oven are not very accurate. We us a Fluke meter with a thermocouple to calibrate an oven. So to check your oven for proper tempature regulation you will first need to let the oven pre-heat for about 15 minutes. Then place the thermocouple in the center of the oven. If the oven is electric the take a temp reading every 5 minutes and average them out. If the oven is gas then you will need to take a temp reading when the tempature reaches it's highest and lowest points. Take at least 5 consectutive readings and average them out. You should get an average within 10 degrees of set temp(350 degrees). If it is off by 35 degrees or less you can usually caluibrate the thermostat back to proper temp. This procedure can be different for each range model. If it is more than 35 degrees off or you are getting irratic readings then the thermostat or thermostat components might need to be replaced.

Frigidaire range model #FEFLFSA, is the top element

When you say Top Element, I assume you mean the TOP OVEN ELEMENT, correct? You have bake, and broil? Bake is usually on the bottom, and broil is the top. In order to have the oven operate correctly, the top and bottom elements may come on at start, in order to do as you just said, "Preheat the oven". This will insure an even distribution of the heat in the oven box and result in better cooking expierences. I would not be alarmed or concerned if the top element came on for a short period to pre-heat in preparation for cooking. This is normal. If the top element stayed on, and did not shut off on bake after the pre-heat period, then I would say you have a control board problem. However, if it comes on and then goes out, except when you are broiling, then I would say that this is normal for your stove, and the pre-heat mode of operations. Your owners manual should advise you of this very process in the guide section to how to use the oven. I hope this helps and that all your cakes, pies, souffle's and the like are......delicious. I'm sure they are. I hope this helps and eases your concerns. Kindest regards, Slats.

Whirlpool gas oven shuts down after cooking for extended periods

id like to see it happen bfore replacin parts, but the control panel is the only "control for bake" there is no "resetable thermostat", and it uses direct spark , not an ignitor( usual suspect)..perhaps after long heating the relay on the control heats up and doesnt close correctly

Preheat taking long time

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.
Post back if you have any more questions.
