Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a kenmore electric oven and I saw sparks flying when I was cooking lastnight. It looked like the coil may have a hole in it. When I unscrewed the coil it began shooting sparks when I pulled on it. Can I get another part for it or get another one or should I leave it alone since it keeps shooting sparks when I move it. I can't even unplug the oven because the plug sits directly behind it.

Oven ignitor intermittent spark, oven wont light, emits gas.


Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.

Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
ELECTRIC OVENS:

CHECK THE OVEN RELAY CONTROL BOARD Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

I have a whirlpool range rf263lxtq the oven stays consent on what is wrong with it


Oven clicks as if it is relighting almost constantly.

· Old electric range ovens use a coil heating element called a resistive coil.
This is nothing more than an electrical wire encased in a sheath. They have flat black coils over rounded burner drip bowls that catch your drips and spills.
· The newer glass-ceramic cook top style element produces heat that radiates through the glass top to the cookware above.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

My kenmore oven model 790.9622340C was on 425 bake and started making sparks like is you put foil in the microwave. I turned it off and looked inside and the broiler element had a hole in it so I was told...


yes they are solid wired together you may need to have the bake element but what has happened with your oven has been a massive short in the heating coil causing spark flame this must have caused a short in the temp control unit all the way back to the thermistate the oven really needs to be looked at by a service pro or you could /will end up replacing parts that dont need to be i have been doing this for yrs and in mu opinion you will save money by having a service man check whats shorted just have him/her check the elements and if there good then the control board thermals


best of luck

please take the time to rank my advice

I saw sparks? or small flame on back wall behind fan inside oven


It sounds likely that the fan motor is faulty,more so if the oven is heating to some extent.
You should be able to see or hear if the fan is working or not
Hope this helps with your prob.

No manual to Kenmore electric oven 8+ years old


if the glass bulb cover has a 'wire' across it that's the spring clip that holds it in place.pull clip down or aside to remove cover,unscrew bulb as you would any other.if it doesn't have aforementioned clip.try to rotate cover counterclockwise to disengage 'ears' from 'slots',similar to the the way a blender fits the base.look under cook-top,above oven door for the lock lever that must be pulled out [engaged] for self clean to work.

Pulling lower coil and big spark came flying out of oven backwall


Have you had a chance to fix it yet ? The wire has probably come off or burned off keeping it from working. Feel the element to see if it has any rough spots in it. This will indicate it is burned up on the inside.

Hole underneath back left burner?


It is your oven vent. It needs to be left open. There could be a calibration issue with your cooking times. Check the accuracy of your thermostat with an oven thermometer.
