Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a 17 year old Kenmore range Model 911-9504190. I need to replace the broil element which burned 3/4 of itself out until I switched off the breaker. Have located the part but not sure what the level of difficulty of replacement is. Can you advise me on that ?

Very simple to change out.
With the range breaker turned off,remove the oven racks.
Unscrew the 2 fasteners holding the element to the back of the oven cavity.
Carefully pull the ends out of the holes.
Disconnect the wire from each end. Be careful not to let the wires fall back into the holes.
Connect the wires to the new element.
Insert the elemnt ends into the holes and re-fasten the screws.

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!

The broiler element comes on by itself when the power is on--it will not turn off unless I turn the power off at the breaker. The bottom element does not come on at all. I get no codes on the display

You have a bad broil-element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) - the contacts have welded shut (closed). You will need to replace the EOC.

We have a free standing Frigidaire flat top stove oven that is electric I decided to use the self cleaning feature on it and the bottom element burnt into My husband removed the bottom element before...

Hi Gina,
From what you are describing, it seems there was an "arc" from where the element itself was supposed to connected to the power in the bottom portion of the stove.
This may have caused the connector itself to burn, seal, or carbonize I.E. Blacken and not allow the element to properly connect to the internal workings.
The other possibility, because the broil is still working is that this particular model of a stove has multiple fuses for controlling the different elements in the oven portion.
You would need to consult the manual, likely available online via model number. The ranges themselves rarley change the electronics inside and if you cannot find the exact model number maybe a newer model 3 year newer would help.
The first thing to check is going to be the fuses themselves. If you have a multimeter available to check the current in the fuses.
If indeed it is the connectors where the element "clips" in to the base of the oven that has gone out, the work to replace it might be more tedious to accomplish.
If you find it is not the fuses, you can consult a repair guy, but likely, parts and labor will be more expensive than replacing the range itself.

Kenmore electric range 790.91011200 When set in broil mode the broil element does not get hot but the bake element does. Should I replace the broil element?

yes. you can do a simple continuity test to be sure (on the broil) element, but you're gonna spend at least 20 dollars on a volt/ohm meter. if you have one already, you're in luck. just remove the element and test the prongs for continuity (usually setting RX1). more than likely the element just needs to be replaced

Our oven is not working. The broil works and the clean cycle works but the regular oven will not work. It's a Kenmore, about 5 years old. the stove works fine also.

Check the wiring to the control switch. Located in the back of the oven. You may have a wire burned off the heating element. Turn off the breaker first, then pull the element out to see if the wire is burned off. This is probably the problem.

GE J BP27G R1AD Oven Not Heating Fully

Hi Jeff. You should have a wiring diagram with the range. Check for an envelope on the back of the range, inside the back splash, or taped to the inside side wall of the range if you remove the lower drawer. That all being said, first check to see if the start or stop time knobs on the timer have been pushed in (and possibly turned). If the clock runs, it will clear this out within 12 hours, but on these old ranges often times the clock no longer runs. Make sure these knobs are turned until they have "popped" out or you won't get the necessary voltage where you need it. Secondly, when a bake element burns out, it can cause damage to the electrical contacts in the oven selector switch (part number WB22X5122 ) which can be tested with an ohm meter if you can find the electrical diagram. Also, the oven thermostat (part number WB21X5320 ) can be damaged in the same way. Unfortunately, these parts for these old units are not very cheap.
The little bit of heat you are getting in your oven now is most likely only from the 120 volts going to the broiler element when in Bake. During Bake, your bake element should get 240 volts (until thermostat is satisfied). Setting to Broil should give 240 to the broil element.

Kenmore Model #790 - smooth top range

Probably not. It sounds like your broil element burned out. This just happens sometimes. If it is this , it will have visible chunks missing. Yes, It shorted with enough force to blow the main fuse. Unplug it as sometimes it can still be live and sparking when power is restored. Element is fairly cheap usually less than $50 and you can fix it yourself.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees

Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.
