Question about Electrolux Ovens

1 Answer

I am trying to replace the broiler element in a Sears Kenmore Elite (2005) Electric stove. I purchased from Sears an Electrolux broiler element that they said was the replacement part, but it did not come with instructions for how to remove the defective element. I know you have to unplug it, but it appears that the plate attached to the defective element has a bolt fastening it to the rear of the stove - but I do not know how to remove it. There is no place for a screwdriver to grip

If you go to the following website and enter the exact model number, they may have your model, and diagrams to assist you in getting at the element. It will most likely require more disassembly than is obvious, and hopefully the diagrams will assist you:

Here is a general blog about changing the broiler element:

If you're still in doubt, you might call Sear's Service Center and talk to a tech- they may be able to tell you what trick you're missing.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do get rid of F10 which is on the window of my Kenmore stove


The F10 error means that the high temperature sensor is reporting a runaway temperature and shut down to avoid a potential fire. Try unplugging the stove or tripping the circuit breaker to reset the code.

If the error recurs, unplug the stove (or turn off the circuit breaker) again. Look at the broiler and bake elements with a flashlight. If it has any damage (breaks, char, melting), you will need to replace the element. Check where the elements connect to the oven and replace them if there is any charring on the back wall.

If the elements are undamaged, you need to check the wiring to identify if the problem is at the elements, the high temperature sensor, wiring or the control board. You will need to access the wiring from the back of the stove. Disconnect the wires to the heating elements. Then disconnect the wiring connections at the high temperature sensor and the control board. Without a model number, I can't be completely sure of the resistance that should be seen at various points. Please post a comment with the model number of the stove and I'll try to confirm the expected and faulty resistance values. Most likely, the resistance should be under 50 ohms but above zero between the left and right contacts of the elements and the violet wires in the wiring harness at the control board. The high temperature sensor should probably have a resistance between 1,000 and 1,200 ohms. If the resistance is high, you'll need to replace the appropriate parts. (Note: if the wiring at the control board gives a reading similar to the resistance of the high temperature sensor, the control board is the likely suspect.)

I hope this helps. If your stove is under warranty, contact Sears/Kenmore to fix the issue. If you aren't comfortable testing the wiring, contact Kenmore for a service call.

Kenmore electric oven will not bake


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

Top rack of cookies overcooked in a one year old Kenmore Elite 790 Electric built-in convection oven


It sounds as though the broiler element was on, causing the cookies to overcook. A bad oven temp setting switch would cause this. Set the oven to the same setting it was on for the cookie project, and check the element at the top of the oven. It should only heat when set to "broil".

I have a kenmore electric stove/oven model 911.9354591. The oven does not work. When in oven mode the broiler comes on. When in broiler mode, the broiler comes on. I have replace the EOC and checked for...


You probably know this, but on an oven unit there has to be two different phases of 120 to make it work. Check the wires that attach to the oven unit to make sure that you have 240 when in oven mode. If you have only 120, find out which wire is not hot and trace it to its source. Is it miswired at the other end? Is it shorted to one of the broiler wires? Usually there is a schematic to show how the oven is wired. Check for anything that is common to both oven and broiler wires and make sure the wires are on the right terminals. With out seeing the sove it is hard to know what it going on. Hope that helps. Robin

My 790.94322302 Kenmore Oven & Broiler stopped working


The odds of both elements going out would be unusual.Tried to look up any other parts but the only other thing is the control module without having a wireing diagram.There should be one on the back of the stove if you can trace wires back from elements.I know that if the oven is in clean mode it over rides the oven controls.But with the electronic controlls don't think that it is possible.
