Why is my oven not switching on when I turn the temperature knob on


I have an electric glass top that did similar! It wouldn't shut off, it would increase heat while in off position. I reset the circuit breaker in my house for the range and no problem since. You could also try to unplug it and leave unplugged for about a minute or two, plug back in and try again. Hope this works for you!

How do I get oven out of clean mode?


IF YOUR OVEN IS DIGITAL TRY UNPLUGING IT FOR 5-10 MIN THEN PLUG IT BACK IN. YOU COULD TRY TAKING OFF THE KNOB & TUTNING THE VALVE WITH A PAIR OF PLYERS YOUR KNOB MAY BE CRACKED & NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO TURN THE VALVE.

Do you have it in clean mode? Otherwise sounds like your temp control is out

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

Both oven knobs have come off and although don't appear to be broken we can't seem to fix them back on properly


First try a layer of silver paper around spindle.

If not satisfactory then try a "No nails" type of clue.

Small electric kenmore oven


sounds like youve shaken or loosened one of the power leads into the oven, check the circuit breakers first, make sure they have not tripped, if not turn off hte breaker and remove the back panel of the stove youre only getting half power to the unit doesnt sound like anything magor at all
