Question about Kenmore 92172 / 92174 / 92179 Electric Kitchen Range
My oven is 3 years old and now neither the bake element nor the broil element will work. The cooktop seems to be working fine. The electronic touchpad seems to be working, it says it is preheating and it even makes the "clicking" sounds it normally makes when it heats up, it just doesn't start warming. Seems odd that the bake and broil elements would go out at the same time. Any suggestions?
It is likely that the safety fues in the back of the unit has failed. This is accessed by removing the back panel of the unit. It is usually located just to the left and up from the center of the back wall. be sure to remove power from the unit before removing the back cover.

Check the K3 relay on the control board. Mine was poorly soldered and fell off the board. I resoldered the pins and it works like a charm now.
