Oven not working

Kenmore glasstop electric range. I used my oven last night and it was fine. I went to heat it up to make something today and nothing. How do I know if it is something simple, like the element is out.... Or if it is a bigger problem? The stovetop as well as the clock are working just fine. Thanx!!

You would have to check the element for continuity. Also the oven sensor could be suspect and should ohm out at 1180 at room temp. if both those are ok then main control is probable. without schematic it would be hard to say for sure..there may even be a safety fuse blown.

"Amanda" ARDS802E. Why won't it heat?


Becky, it sounds like you have either a failed ERC or Electronic control board (Y0315030) or a bad limit control switch (31933003). If it's the ERC it's likely bad relay(s). If your clock is powering up and you see the clock then that lets us know that you are receiving power to the oven. If it's the Limit Control, then you will need to replace that approximately $60. It's inside the oven and prevents the elements from getting hot if it breaks. If it's the ERC then you can have it repaired for $99.99 from The Repair Shack. The link for the repair service is: Repair Service For GE Oven Range Control Board Y0315030. Hope this helps!

Hi Last night my oven just stopped working while I was baking. All the lights and clock went off and oven/broil controls are inoperable. The burners (and the electric ignition) continue to work fine. I...


You have a bad EOC electronic oven control unit, They are readily available from any parts house. They do not have instruction but are not difficult as it is just a few screws and swap out wire for wire. It may be a good idea to buy it from a vendor that allows returns of electrical items. Many do not allow returned electrical items. Please rate my answer and any comments are welcomed at least good ones:) Good Luck, Mastatech.

Kenmore Electric range does not maintain temperature setpoint.


How do you know the thermo sensor is working correctly when it gets hot?. No I think the thermal sensor is defective, it is cheap to buy.

Hello. I can help you.

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
Since it is a Kenmore you can get the part at Sears.com. You can price the part there. I can assure you that a technician will charge you at least $125. to do that repair. If the range is old, you may wish to put that money toward a new stove.

Oven won't work


It sounds like your heat ignitor went out. To find out open the door and look for a 1/4" rod that starts in back and wraps to front then to back again that is it. shout door turn on oven to se if that get bright red I would start at 475 degrees. If it does not get bright red it went out and needs to be replaced. If I get model # I can get part # and manual to show you how to replace it. Or you can cal out an appliance repair man.
Good luck.
