Is this an electronic control oven...touch pads to set temp? May have a bad ERC. Electronic Range Control. Also check oven sensor. This is steel rod in oven in back wall near top on left or right. Check ohms from the rear where it connects to harness. Disconnect at harness and measure resistance of sensor. Most are around 1.1k.

How do I replace the receptacle for the heating elements on the stove top.

Typically the light is a function of the selector so as long the position of the knob is to the on position it will be on. in order for the burners to work you'll have to replace the connectors, so full current can go through them. also the self cleaning feature refers to the oven meaning you can lock it, turn it to clean and it will get so hot that the build up on the inside will get flaky and then you can clean it once it cools off. I've never seen one that work that well, but it has nothing to do with the glass there is cleaners that you can "rub" kind of like waxing a car and if you have build up on the glass or burned food you can scrape it with a razor laying flat on the glass and scrape the cleaner around will eventually it will peel off.

My stove works but my oven wont, and the light of the oven wont turn off

Without a model number, my guess would be a stuck relay in the electronic clock/timer. Replace the Electronic clock/timer.

Kenmore Oven going crazy

The bang may have been an element arcing over.  Turn off the power and remove the element.  If it shows any form of damage, replace it.  If you're not sure, use a continuity checker to check it.  If you have two elements...do this for both.  You will likely find the problem.
