Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Kenmore electric range

The broiler element never turns off. I can unplug the range and/or flip the breaker off, let it sit for any amount of time, and when I plug it back in and flip the breaker back on the broiler element starts glowing red hot again. And, the digital display says the oven is not even on. I also get an error code that says the oven temp has gotten too hot...but that is obvious because the only way to turn the element off is to unplug the stove.

    Exactly the same issue with our Sears Kenmore Electric Stove. Broiler came on and would not shut off when attempting to start the OVEN.Finally flipped the circuit breaker OFF and have not attempted to turn on since. Definately concerned as to what could have happened had we NOT been home!

    we have a kenmore self cleaning range and it keeps on beeping F1 and F3 anytime we bake anything is there a temp fix for this and if you know what the problem is can you tell us and maybe give us an idea on a cost for a full fix..or if we are better off buying a new set?

    We've had the same problem with our Kenmore 665.95014100 range. The
    broiler came on and caused the oven to overheat with E2 -F3- error. The
    only way to shutdown was to trip breaker. Found a technician guide on back of range and checked ohm reading on oven
    sensor probe and it showed within range (1000-2600 depending on oven temperature). Checked voltage from neutral
    to broil connection with breaker on but oven not turned on and it
    showed 120VAC (broiler was full on), which I've read if you have any voltage means control
    board is faulty.

    Dittos, almost burned the house down, set oven for 350 degrees, but broiler turned on, only way to shut down broiler was at circuit breaker...Class action suit?????

  • chaplaineric Jul 31, 2008

    Same problem this week with Kenmore model 665.95002102. Baking at 350, broiler came on full temp. and only way to shut it down is with the breaker.

    Almost burned the kitchen down today when the broiler over would not come on until Gary finally turned off the breaker. Had I been alone, I probably wouldn't have known what to do but panic...and since this is Sunday, our local Sears store is closed! I'm so angry and wonder if anyone knows whether the Model 95002102 was the one that was recalled or involved class action suit which was recently settled. ?? By the time you pay for the replacement part and the time expended for someone to replace it, wouldn't it be cheaper to buy another range? I'm not buying Sears again!

    I had the same problem. Did you oven experience problems before that? On three different ocassions when I turned on the oven I got a popping sound and one day I actually saw sparks from the part where you push to turn on the oven.

    I have model # 665.95781000, purchased in 2000. Same problem with the broiler turning on and not shutting down until either unplugged or flipped the breaker. Discovered that the sensor may need replacing. I took off the back panel and the sensor was easy to take off by removing 2 screws. A new sensor costs approx $75.00. Will take the old sensor to the local appliance store to get analyzed. net Sears.

You need a new mother-board.

I had the same issue, it overheated my kitchen in a matter of minutes. If I didn't turn off the circuit-breaker, I probably would have had a fire - the heat being emitted was intense. The cost is running around $300. with tax and delivery. I'm not sure if I want to repair or purchase a new oven.

The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.

Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:

1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.

This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.

    You can find the oven control board under item # 938995 at The cost is aout $286. The part isn't cheap, but it's a repair that can be accomplished by the average consumer and the repair could cost you a lot more with added labor costs. Double check your warranty to determine when the rnage was purchased. There could be a chance that this still may be covered. You may be able to find the part cheaper at other sites, or inquire at your local parts store. If you decide to replace the board follow these steps:

    1. Unplug the range.

    2. Remove the rear access panel from the console.

    3. Write down the wiring locations, or a digital camera may come in handy for this.

    4. Remove the wiring being careful not to pull on the wires - pull on the lugs.

    5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the control board in place.

    6. The new board may not come with the overlay (this is the plastic piece the covers the front of the board with all the printing on it. This can be reused. Carefully remove the overlay and place it on the new board.

    7. Install new control board using care not to handle the board components as much as possible.

    8. Reconnect all wiring.

    9. Reinstall back panel.

    I hope this isn't discouraging to you...

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?

Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

Oven element

model T, either you have a stuck or shorted broil keypad or the relay on the board is welded closed. Try this, remove the back panel behind the control panel. Make sure the breaker is off to the range. Unplug the keypad ribbon cable to the main board. Power the unit back up. You should get an error code. Now if the broiler still comes on you know you have a welded broiler relay on the board. If the broiler doesn't come's the keypad. Catriver.

316418305 broiler element and bake element will not heat

Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire range, model# FEF336BC, broiler and bake element not heating. I would give your range a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.

After restoring power you will need to reset the clock. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing start.

Turn your oven on and if the elements are still not heating, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Last week when my wife turned on the oven a flash and popping noise happened and the circuit breaker popped. I ordered a new control board part number WB27T10229 and installed it. When I turn the circuit...

The broiler is a different element. Sounds like your main (bottom) element is out. Turn off breaker and remove. To test, use an ohm meter and ohm out the element. If yuor meter reads 0 or OL (open load) your element needs to be replaced.

Magic Chef Broiler won't turn off

If this is brand new you need to get this taken care of under warranty. Any thing you try to do to repair will void the warranty and with all the electronics on this stove you want warranty to repair. Sorry I wasn't much help but you don't want the warranty voided.

Kenmore Oven and Broiler stopped working

My first suggestion is to remove the broil and the bake elements from the oven (unplug it or shut off the breaker) and test them with a meter on the OHM setting and see if you have continuity. You can't always tell if they are blown just by looking at them. Secondly, if they both check out alright, I would be looking at the ERC - electronic clock - you have a burnt relay in which case you will need a new one. Depending on where you are you may be able to find a place where it can be rebuilt for about 1/2 the cost of a new one. Hope this helps you.

Broiler Stuck On - Want to Disconnect

Yes, you can remove the broiler element. Usually they are just plug in after you unseat them If there are wire leads, you must follow them back and remove them from their terminal. If you follow the lead back to the terminal, you may just remove them with a pair of pliers and pull the burner out.

Oven and broiler: no heat

Flipped the breaker switch! Although we had looked at the breaker first thing, and it was not flipped off, plus everything else on the range was working: we found out it is actually a double breaker, with one half controlling just the oven, and it can be just partially flipped and you don't notice it. So as soon as you toggle it off and on again, you are back in full power.
