Without more info i can only give general info. ISOLATE MAINS POWER BEFORE REMOVING PANELS
It sounds like one of several possible problems, temp control switch they use in some models two terminal over heat control components, or temp prob, the first type is a metal case with two terminals, you may see black on this if not a test meter will be required. It should conduct through the terminals, not the case to the terminals, Impedance setting low on meter. The second type is a bit tricky to test and is generaly controlled by an electronic circuit, it is poss it could be one element blow inspect them a Black Grey spot blow out or a bulge on the element surface. This can cause temp problems.
Hope this has been helpful

When I light my oven, it stays on full all the time. Is it the thermostate


I'd recommend buying an oven temp dial to stick in your oven to verify the actual temp. Then you can turn on the oven using a lower setting and write down the temp for the setting. Then as you slowly adjust the setting higher and higher, note each temp. If it doesn't show a consistent increase of temp for each setting, you may need it calibrated or replaced. Good luck!

I have a kenmore ultra bake, model #665 75022101 and the oven doesnt work the code E0-F3 comes up. i have the manual and have tried what they said to do but it doesnt work. i have bought a new sensor


The error code message F3 E0 indicates an open oven sensor circuit. This is the component that regulates the oven temperature.

First disconnect electrical power to the range. Pull the range out & remove the rear panel to the control area. Unplug the 2 violet wires on P3 5-6. You will need to have a meter for testing, set the meter to read ohms (resistance). Place the leads from the multimeter across the 2 violet wires, the meter should read 1080ohms if the sensor is good. If you do not get the correct reading you will need to replace the oven temp sensor.

The oven temp sensor is mounted to the inside of the oven cavity. You will need to remove the lower section of the rear panel to access the sensor connector. Unplug the sensor & slide it back into the oven cavity to remove & replace.

Kenmore 790.95662100 electric oven does not bake evenly. It seems to bake items until you get into the center of a cake or the center of something with mass. The same temp has previously cooked without...


Sounds like the thermostat is out of calibration. IE- you set the temp at 350, but the actual temp is only 275, resulting in undercooked food. I repair comercial restaurant equipment, and use an infra red thermometer to check actual temp in the oven, against the set temp.

Do you mean oven doesnt want to get to set tempreture in this case you would test the oven tempreture sensor with an ohm meter between 65-80 degrees inside tempt should be reading between 1000-1100 ohms any less of a fluctuation and you would replace the sensor if you have any further questions message me back Thanks again Rick

you actually have just one thing to replace to fix both of these issues. the main control board has to be replaced.
the display can get weak and not show very bright.
the beeper that alerts you is also on that same board.
replace the board and you should be back to seeing and knowing what you oven is doing again.

Oven does not reach set temp


What are using to measure temp ? Are you using a grocery store bi-metal or professional thermal probe ? and further to that, how long are you waiting to check temp. after range "beeps" or announces preheat complete ? The bi-metal type thermometers do take several minutes longer to reach actual temp as opposed to the ranges temp. probe. Does this unit have the "hidden" bake element ? That sounds like a huge temp difference. These units do require an additional 10mins of wait time after announcing ("BEEP") the preheat is complete (check your manual, it should confirm this) Elements don't go "bad" it either comes on (amp draw) or it doesn't.

hope this helps.

good luck

Doesn't get as hot as it should


the range has two thermostats one for each oven located under the oven knobs. put a meat thermometer in the oven and adjust the thermostat screw with a small flat screwdriver untill the oven turns off at the correct knob temp.
registered on the thermometer.
then adjust the knob screw on the back of the knob to match that temp setting.
clockwise is hotter counterclockwise is cooler

Oven wont heat up to temp set


You will need to have the thermostat looked at or replaced, it may be defective and not reading the correct temp, also try using a manual oven thermometer to check the actual temp in the oven to give you a better idea of what the actual temp is inside
