Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Purchased a kenmore electric range around 1 and 1/2 yr ago ( 790.9437370) and i heard a pop. The heating element appeared that it was burned. My hubby just installed a new one, and again, the oven does not heat up. The stove top does heat up.

Kenmore electric range model 911.95875790, no heat to either baking and broiler elements.


Hello. I looked carefully at the service manual for your unit--surprisingly, there is no thermal switch inline with the bake/broil elements. Usually, if the bake or broil elements pop, this blows out the thermal switch, killing power to the elements for safety. The main control board can get damaged due to the high current draw during a short-circuit. The part number for the main board is WB27T10008. The overlay(the decorative sticker with the button/names on it) numbers are as follows: almond WB27T10022, black WB27T10023, and white WB27T10021. I hope this helps you!

Oven does not heat up


That pop could have been the element. Check all around the element for a bubble or a large pit/hole. If you don't find anything then check for a burned wire in the back (please unplug the range). Does your range have fuses? If so then check the 30A fuses, but if one is blown you'll have to find the short that caused it, usually a burned wire fused to the chassis or a burned out element. There are many things that could have caused this but these are the most common. Cheers

I was baking and heard a pop sound and saw a spark before the oven lost all power? What happened?


OOOPPs - not good , If you saw or heard a pop noise + spark then something blew or shorted.
If the 'loss' was quiet then a fuse or circuit breaker can blow without noise or sparks.
This oven has 4 Heating elements (2 on Grill) 2 inside oven , as you were baking it sounds like a heating element.
As this is a US model I'm assuming you are close to a SEARS somewhere, because they advertise parts made for Kenmore -- try this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Evaporative-coil-Parts/Model-867813350/0582/1610510/00007536/00001

While using stovetop had turn oven on for a few minutes heard a pop and smoke from back of stove. fuse blown?


Hi,

It's unlikely to be a fuse. Those are the classic signs of the heating element burning out, in which case you will need a new element. Burnt out elements can't be repaired. If the fan still runs but the oven doesn't heat up, it's your element.

I have a 4 yr old kenmore glasstop electric range. Problem exists with the broiler as it comes on when I set the oven to bake.


this is normal
about 8 years ago manufactures started to include the broil element in the preheat cycle to heat the oven faster
it should cycle down once the set temp is reached

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle...


Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

Large Heating Element no longer heats


Is it the eye itself or the receptacle? solution: yank out the questionable eye and put another from the stove in that one. swap em around and determine if the eye is bad or the receptacle. The receptacle are around 10 bucks.

Kenmore range


If this range has electric elements in the oven, you may have blown one of the heating elements. Do any of the oven functions work? If you were attempting to BAKE when this occurred, have you attempted to turn on the BROILER to see if it works? If the BROILER still heats up, you may just have a bad heating element. If both features quit working, the problem may be with your Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. Post back with comments and let me know.
