Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The range was purchased at the end of 2006 - less that two years old. I turned on the broiler and after 1-2 minutes, sparks and flames flew out. All electricity to our house was fried. Has there been a recall on this model?
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.
