Kenmore oven will not turn off

yes sounds like your bake/broiler relay is sticking closed. this could possibly be a $400.00 repair. look in your owners manuel sometimes they give extended warrenties in there. so all you would be responible for is the labor. let me know how it goes.

Kenmore electrical oven

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven Won't Heat Up

Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on.  If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module.  Electrical spikes cause problems like this.
