Question about Kitchen Ranges

I have the Kenmore 790 and the heating elements will not get hot. Everything else works fine. When I set the oven or broiler temp it makes the clicking sound like it is heating by never gets hot. It is both the broiler and oven elements that won't work.

Broiler turns to pre heatworks oven doesnt heat when temp


the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.

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".

Kenmore 790 oven won't heat after self clean


Did you fully disconnect the wires when you checked continuity? If not you are checking continuity in the whole circuit. For what its worth, the self clean feature superheats the oven and often burns out elements. We see it all the time. It is one feature to never use!

The broiler element is not part of the oven temperature, it is a broiler. The oven works on the bottom element alone. If it only gets to 300'F, wither the bottom element is faulty or the thermostat is failing. As I mentioned self clean is a great way to cause problems.

Oven does not heat, setting oven temp the cleaner latch lights up


Does the Broiler Work? Make sure you have 220 Volts to the Oven. Take the 220 breaker and push if all the way off and then snap it back to the On position. If the Broiler works and the bottom elements doesn't get hot you have a element out. They are not to hard to change. Shut power off to oven and take the screw out at the back in the middle of the element and the elements pulls out and then unhook the wires and replace with a new one. If you have a volt meter you can OHM out the heating element. You should get a buzzing noise if it is good. The other part of the equation is the temperature control that could be bad so use your Volt Meter to do some minor checks before you start replacing parts. Hope this Helps!

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Old Kenmore oven does not work anymore. Broiler and top burners work fine. What could be the problem?


Just a guess. There may be a temp sensor in the oven that tells the element to turn off when it is hot enough. If this is gone the element will not heat. It is 4 or 5 inches long and sticks through from the back of the stove. Try turnig on the element and then tap this thing with a wooden spoon. If it begins working you know what needs to be placed.

I have a GE Single Wall electric oven.(JTP25SOH2) The heating elements just stop getting hot. unit is about 4 years old purchased brand new. first the broiler stop getting hot then the baking heating...


First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.
