Breaker keeps flipping off

I have a Kenmore range with hidden elements and it had been on for 45 minutes when it kicked the breaker off. I then flipped the breaker and it immediately kicked it off again. Then I flipped it again and it stayed on for a minute then kicked the breaker off again. Now I can't get the breaker to stay on because it flips off. Do you think there is a problem with the breaker or with the range

Resetting the breakers please...don't.... it may cause a fire or the like... The Breaker is tripping because there is some fault to earth... IT is VITAL you get a Registered Electrician & get him to check it over. DO NOT TOUCH IT WHILE THE POWER IS ON! It could be LETHAL..

Why kenmore oven code f-10 comes on when bake or broil is on


I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor.

It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If that checks good, then your control board is the problem.

Here's the oven sensor probe for your model:

Everything on my range CFEF372EC2 works except the oven


Hello Roy Ellis - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, I personally recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately. The range could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty element(s) which will need further diagnosising.

Oven left on shut itself off how to reprogram


Hi Shannon Turner - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, the range could possibly have a faulty element(s), wiring failure, or a communication error with the EOC. Connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues if issue continues.

We have a Kitchen Aid Electric stove about 10 years old and there was no owners manual left from the last owner. This week we turned on the oven and there is no heat from the elements on both the bake and...


The first thing I would check is the breaker for the oven at the breaker box. I have encountered similar problems and a partially thrown breaker ( or one pole of a double-pole breaker) can cause this. Find your "range breaker" in your breaker box and cut it off then flip it back on. There is a good chance that might fix your breaker. If it is an older house with fuses, then the range would be on two fuses and one of them is blown. This happens to dryers also (if the right fuse/breaker goes, the motor runs but it won't heat)
Hope this helps

We were pre heating the oven and we noticed it was off when we checked on it the breaker keeps tripping as soon as you try to turn it back on my wife said she saw a bright spark from behind the stove when...


First I would turn the breaker off. If you can pull the stove out and find where the cord connects to the oven. Check the connections. If a breaker is tripping as you try to reset it, that means there is a direct short from hot to neutral line. If the connections are good and not burnt... you want to check to see that the elements are in good condition and not melted. Check where the wires connect to the elements. Many times this is where a short occurs. The spark your wife saw should show signs somewhere. Look for a scorch mark.

Breaker flipped on my oven while cooking a turkey


If the oven was still slightly warm to the touch when you came home is probably fine. 45 minutes was not enough time to get the turkey hot down near the bone, so if it was cool I would discard it. But if you were lucky and it was still warm, go ahead.

Trouble Shooting


I hope by now it is working. You have probably knocked a wire off or actually have broken the burner itself. Can you check it for continuity.It may not appear to be broken but the coil on the inside may be depending on how hard the board hit the element.

You either have a bad element, loose wire or a short.
Start by checking the connection at the back of the stove.
Then look inside the oven to see if there is any visible evidence of damage to one of the oven elements.
I would suspect it is the bottom element that is giving you trouble.
Otherwise, if you have bad wiring to the range outlet, this could be difficult to track down.
If this is a new installation, your fuse/circuit breaker may not be high enough amps.
You may need to increase the size by installing new fuses or breaker depending on which you have.
I think a 50amp breaker would be standard, but you may need to use a 45 amp or greater. Just be sure your wire to it is heavy enough.
#6 wire would be better for a double oven situation.
