Question about Kenmore Ovens
This issue can occur due to faulty relay on the oven control board or due to a faulty oven temperature sensor. Use a multimeter to check for resistance of the sensor, use RX1 or RX10 setting. Make sure that the reading of the oven temperature sensor is between 1080 and 1120 ohms at room temperature. Please check part#43 (temperature sensor)---
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

As strange as this might sound, your clock and control panel board are probably bad. These tend to go out just like you explained and the problem can only be fixed if you replace the clock and control panel. It needs 240 volts to heat the oven, if that clock/timer control is only sending 110 volts to it, then you would need a new clock/timer assembly.
You can try a reset, but there is no reset button on the oven, Press the "7" button on the Kenmore Elite keypad.
This is usually caused by a failed oven temperature sensor probe.
Replacing this component will likely fix your problem.
You can order this part from www.searspartsdirect.com website.
If you replace this part yourself, be sure that you unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing this component.
On some models, you can replace the probe by removing the screws that mount this component to the inside back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the probe inside the oven cavity until you encounter the wire harness disconnect plug.
Unplug the sensor and replace it with the new one. Mount the new probe on the back wall of the oven.
On some models, you have to remove the lower back oven panel to access the sensor probe.
If you replace the probe and still have this problem, you will need to unplug the range and measure the resistance through the violet wires that plug into the control board (this is where the sensor probe circuit is connected to the control board).
If the resistance through the oven temperature sensor probe circuit is normal (about 1100 ohms at room temperature) then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.
