This is a simple step-by-step procedure.

1. Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker panel. Or slide the oven ahead and reach behind to unplug the power cord.

2. Take out the two screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven. They are usually hex head or phillips screws.

3. Carefully pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the two wires behind it. Unscrew the wire leads and remove the bad heating element.

4. Handle the new element carefully while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.

5. Line up the new element while tucking the wires back in place. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.

6. Fasten the bracket screws, making sure they're tight.

7. Restore power to the appliance and start your oven to check if the new element heats up.

A few things to remember...

You are working with high voltage! Be sure the power is off or the oven is unplugged!

If you find one of the wires has come off the old element, simply reconnect and check your oven. Your old element may work again and you will not need to purchase a new one.

In removing any of the screws mentioned above, note that they may be difficult to lossen due to years of exposure to heat. Don't give up, they will eventually loosen.

Your new element may have some oil or other gunk on it due to the manufacturing process. Once it begins to heat, it may start to smoke. Don't panic! Any residue will eventually burn away and the smoke will cease from then on.

Good Luck!

Kenmore elite stove model #7909912949B. Can get anything to work on oven. Light comes one. Nothing else in the enter panel. Top burners work.


Can you enter the oven temp and press start on the control panel? Do you hear it click on, but it just does not get hot? Try turning on the broiler and see if the broiler gets hot.

My whirlpool SF265LXTS oven turns on properly, but the oven itself isn't getting hot. The gas stove top and broiler both work fine.


It sounds like you might have a clogged burner plate or manifold. You should call a certified gas repair service. This could be very dangerous, even deadly.

Oven will not light but broiler works


More than likely the igniter for the bake manifold has become weak over time and now needs to be replaced. Each burner manifold in the oven has a separate igniter. That's why your broiler still works. Due to the frequency of use, the bake igniter wears out faster and may require replacement more often. The following link explains a little theory on how these igniters work and how to replace one:

Oven and broiler won't come on. Cooktop burners are fine.


Have you run the self-cleaning feature recently? I had a similar problem on my stove of the same model, and it was the switch that detects whether the oven latch is engaged (if it gets stuck and thinks the latch is locked, it will not ignite the main burner or broiler). An easy way to check if that's the problem: without touching the latch, turn the controls to Clean. If the burner lights, that is your trouble.
