Beaumark oven self cleaning

I have my mother's Beaumark self- cleaning oven. It has a dial for element choice " broiler, bake, slef- clean, and off"
It also has a dial to set the temperature, which is at off.

I accidently turned the knob all the way around to self- clean. The light is on and I hear a whirring soundas the door locked. That was 5 hours ago, and the door is still locked.

HEELLLLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kenmore electric range model 790 oven stopped functioning, both broiler and bake. however, oven light still comes on.


I believe there is a thermal fuse (also called a TCO or Thermal Cut-Out) located either on the back of the oven, or between the top of the oven and the cooktop that has opened up. Did this happen after running a self-clean cycle?

Lower heating element in oven does not work


so this unit is electric? does the broiler work? if the answer is yes , the broiler does work...more than likely you need a bake element. Do you have a multimeter? you can also check to see if you have 240 volts going to the element when you turn it on if you have voltage your problem is 100 percent a bake element that has gone bad.

Jennaire broiler doesnt work on slidein range after using self clean oven. Its only 14 mo. old


if just your broil element does not work and the bake element does work after using a self clean cycle then your broil element must have went out , self clean is a torture proccess for any self clean oven and it runs both elements at 500 deg. F, it may be still under warranty , if not then replace the broil element for the fix.

Broiler works, but oven does not.


oven is equiped with two elements one,< upper > for broiler and the second < lower > is for baking . The bake element is probably damaged and no longer working,< damage is just from use the element has failed >, to know for sure element has to be tested for continuity to confirm this,< unless it is obviously damaged, broken or burnt and seperated >.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.

Broiler quit


Have you checked the broil element resistance? Unplug the range and remove the back cover. Remove the wires from the broiler element and place a meter across the element posts. See if the element reads close to a short (It should read very low resistance if good). If the element reads infinite (open), you will have to replace the broil element. If the readings are normal, you may have a bad Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. The board controls the bake and broil features of the oven through two separate circuits. Usually a relay on the board goes bad. Since the ERC is considered "non-serviceable", replacement components can be hard to find. For this reason, the entire assembly is usually replaced. The ERC runs around $100 for your range, while the broil element can run anywhere from $35 to $60. Now...as far as your self-cleaning function is concerned - most electric ranges use BOTH elements to super heat the oven cavity to about 700 - 800 degrees F. With one of the elements not working, there's a good possibility the self-cleaning function will not work either Double check the items I mentioned and let me know if this helps you.
