I HAVE A GAS STOVE THAT IS PROBABLY 15 YEARS OLD. IT SEEMS TO BAKE FINE, HOWEVER THESE LAST FEW YEARS IT BURNS OR SCORCHES THE BOTTOM BEFORE ITS COMPLETELY DONE. AS I CANNOT AFFORD A NEW STOVE HOW CAN I STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING? WOULD PUTTING A PIECE OF HEAVY DUTY FOIL ON THE BOTTOM OR ON THE RACK KEEP IT FROM GETTING THE BOTTOM TOO HOT?

If the bottom element is getting too hot, then either control or the temperature probe is faulty

The temperature probe is located inside the oven cavity. It must be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms with a multimeter set at Rx1.
At room temperature of about 60 - 80 °F (15 -27 °C), the temperature probe must return 1.1KOhms.

Testing the probe at different temperatures is more complex, as you will need a precision oven thermometer, and there are safety concerns involved.

Enter model number on website below, or give us model mumber to locate the probe. The probe is not an expensive part.

If the probe is tested OK, sometimes the control board can be faulty.

If the problem is happening only on lower element, also ensure that the element is not "plugged" because of a contact, in that case the element will stay on all the time.

Here the part site:
Appliance Parts Pros.com Discount Appliance Parts


If part is not listed, try:
Appliance Parts -Research, Repair & Replace.

Or give us the model written on Oven service tag.

Please do not forget to leave feedback.

Regards.

Regards.

Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! First of all you clearly did the right thing by having the gas company come by. Most likely the safety valve on your stove is defective and needs to be replaced. The safety valve is supposed to prevent accidental gas flow.
Here is the other issue. In home repairs have become so pricey once any thing is out of warranty that it is always a judgment call as to what to do. The new gas stoves are much more efficient than the models of 5 years ago, they are much better when it comes to baking with uniform results, etc. etc. etc. There fore, you could call a few appliance repair shops and get estimates, which would allow you to make a more educated decision about whether to repair or replace. Best regards, J.

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?

Oven takes FOREVER to pre-heat


You probably have a bad heating element. Trip the breaker and make sure that all power is removed from the stove/oven. Remove the element, and test it for continuity. If it tests open, obtain a replacement from an appliance parts supply house. If it tests good, you should suspect either a bad switch or thermostat.

Hello. I can help you.

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
Since it is a Kenmore you can get the part at Sears.com. You can price the part there. I can assure you that a technician will charge you at least $125. to do that repair. If the range is old, you may wish to put that money toward a new stove.

Baking part of range not working


If it's electric, it could be the element or the control. If it's gas, it's probably just the bake ignitor. The only expensive of these is the control.
