SOURCE: Kenmore electric stove heating element how to replace

A replacement is usually around $40. There are usually 2 screws holding the element in the back of the stove. Turn off the power and remove the element. There are usually only 2 wires. It really doesn't matter which goes where. Install the new element and see if it will shut off when oven reachers temp. If it continues to heat, there is another piece that needs to be replaced. If there is a contactor or relay replace it, If not the thermostat needs to be replaced. Sometimes when the element burns out it shorts to the ground and fuses the contacts forcing the element to stay on. Sometimes you actually have to turn off the power to the stove.

SOURCE: 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,
ttfn

SOURCE: F3-error. Kenmore classic oven

Hello there:
Whenever you get the dreaded f-3 code this is the code that tells you that the temperature sensor is going bad or already has gone bad and needs to be replaced immediatly. It should look something like this and cost about 50 dollars

I have a smooth top kenmore oven model #92172300 when you use the oven it gets to the temperature but then its shuts the heat off i had heating element tested and its good please help


The thermostat controls the heating element. If it comes to temp you know the element is OK. The thermostat can be tested. or just replace it.

Where do I locate the fuses that controls the oven heating.


Hello Pat;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you go into self cleaning both of your burner element peak at there max temperature, well above 500 degrees F.

1.) Oven Element - Over time the elements will fail. Turn the upper element on. Inspect for sparking where there may be a crack in the element. Turn the upper element off, inspect for any cracks.

If there are no cracks then you lower element is fine.

2.) Each of your ovens have a independent thermocouple. Both may have failed due to the extreme heat. Oven thermocouples will fail on older units.

3.) Lets go to the source. You have what is called a infinite switch in your oven. This switch controls your oven temperature. If this switch fails then your oven will not work.

Ok, lets assume you or a friend are good with tools. With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms, In the back of your oven there is a sheet metal cover. Remover the cover, disconnect the two contacts on each thermocouple, and Ohm them out. (Power Off at your breaker box first) You should get a reading of '0' Ohms, anything else the thermal couples are bad.

But, I tend to believe, You have a bad infinity switch. You can also Ohm this out as above with a reading of '0' Ohms.

This component is about $35.00 USD.

If I were still working for Sears Home Services I would charge you $350.00- $450.00 for this service call. Send me your model number and let me see what you have. goodwinpeg@aol.com.

Hi haiste,

This problem only means that you have a bad ERC that needs replacement. You may order the part from Sears, call them at 1-800-252-1698. Just get your model number ready and they'll help you get the new ERC. Once delivered, it goes with the instruction on how you will replace.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore Elite Gas range, model # 790.79363401 The range works but the oven does not seem to heat up. It appears to ignite, just not get hot.


Hello,

the problem should be from the heating element of your Kenmore Elite Gas range. The heating element is either defective or may have loosed contact as a result of heat coming out of the Oven. The heat coming from the oven may have melted the wire connected to the heating element which might not make it heat up.

Disassemble the oven and check if its actually the wire connected to heating element that got melted, or its time to replace the heating element.

Good luck.

My Kenmore Elite oven will take over an hour to preheat to 350 degrees and never does get done preheating.


There's a few things that can cause this.

1. Check to see if the both that Bake and Broil elements (burners) are heating up. Check the Broil element in Broil mode.

- during pre-heat the Broil element gets cycled on and off for short time durations to speed up the heating. If the Bake element is not working, then the oven will heat, but very slowly and never reach high temperature.

2. If the elements are both working, then it's possible that you have a bad temperature sensor.

- this is a temperature dependent resistance device that should measure 1080 ohms at 70 deg F (room temp).

3. If #1 and #2 are ok, then the problem is with your oven clock/control unit. We rebuild these at fixyourboard.com.

Hello. I can help you.

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
Since it is a Kenmore you can get the part at Sears.com. You can price the part there. I can assure you that a technician will charge you at least $125. to do that repair. If the range is old, you may wish to put that money toward a new stove.

Oven will not heat.


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Oven does not heat up beyond 240 degrees, which takes a long time


You have either a burned our lower element or a wire has burned off at the terminal for that element. The good news is that the lower element is cheaper.
