Oven will heat up, but then will not maintain desired temperature.
When I set the oven temp to desired temp, the oven will heat up to that level, and shut off. When oven temp goes down, the oven will not come back on to maintain the cooking temperature. I can reset it manually, but it shuts off again.

So are you saying that the oven does not start at all?The 350 just appears on the display and then pressing enter it disappears?Does it warm at all?If it warms,it is most likely the thermocouple or ASM,both are the same,just varies between makers.If it does not heat at all,it sounds like somehow the temperature setting got switched from F to C somehow,which can happen completely not done by you.Let me know which situation you have and I'll figure it out.Greg
I GOT THE SAME QUESTION .. IT IS A GAS OVEN . WHEN THERMOSTAT IS SET TO GAS MARK 4 WHICH IS EQUIVALENT TO 350 DEGREES , AFTER 10 MINUTES, IT REACHES ITS DESIRED TEMP. BUT IF I DON'T ADJUST THE FLAME, THE TEMP WILL RISE HIGHER AND HOTTER THAT I NEED TO OPEN THE OVEN DOOR TO DECREASE THE TEMPERATURE INSIDE. ANYONE KNOWS IF THAT IS NORMAL? THANKS
This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symtoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.
Sears Kenmore Electric Wall OVen, Mod.#9114012192 purchased in 1993. Set oven for 425 degrees, reaches set temperature, stays on about 10 minutes and temp. display goes out and oven starts cooling down. Will not stay on desired temp.to cook. Can you tell me what my problem is? Thanks. Doug.
