Oven will not shut off

The oven get's real hot when we plug it in. The oven light is not on. It will not shut off. It is almost like it is in cleaning mode but we did not set it to do so. Any ideas wht may be causing this. The burners work ok. I can't remember what error number it did show. It was either F1 or F2. Kenmore Electric Range with Ultrabake Oven Tried to turn off oven and had to unplug it. Wouldn't shut off. Sears repair person said it was oven relay shorted out, must replace computer board. Price approx . $500

    We had the same problem with our 2003 Kenmore Range. In 9/04 we had the computer board replaced under warranty. Now it's happened again. The part is $282, then you add labor. We won't be fixing or buying Kenmore again!

Electrickitchenaid oven goes on by itself

Common problem here. The board needs to be replaced. Depending on the model, it can cost up to $500 or so. Also when baking they have been know to kick into the cleaning mode. At which time the oven door will lock and the oven gets very hot and can start a fire. This happened to me. Had to shut the oven breaker off. Had to buy a new oven-and not one that cleans with the very hot temps.

My oven won't light.

Does it glow real bright like orange or just red. Because if it's not real bright orange, the ignighter could be bad. The oven will not light if the ignighter is not hot enough.

The outside of self cleaning oven is scorched. what can i do to clean it.

Try cleaning softly with Mr. Clean Magic pad. Oven should be warm, not hot, then follow directions on the pad. Does real well on fireplace glass doors when they are warm also.

I have model GS563LXSS...all of a sudden the oven

It is not good to do the self clean. The electronics take a beating. Probably the ignitor went out. The oven gets too hot.

My oven does not shut off.

Hi there, this is a serious control fault that may be fixed by unplugging this unit for a five minute period. after this hard reset, plug the unit back into the wall outlet and power up. if the unit continues to stay on, you will need to replace the control(electric oven control)board.

Maytag Gemini electric oven

Well my friend these type ovens have eyes and sensers. It could be that you left something on the sensor when you were cleaning it. That is if it is not self cleaning. Self cleaning gets real hot and could affect your appliance in some way. It shouldn't but it might.
