Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my Kenmore gas range turn itself on?

A:

Special tools needed; T-10 torx driver. The clock control could not be the problem because it is not in the oven circuit, please see the attached wiring diagram. If the electrical contacts in the thermostat are pitted & have arced, then this would cause the oven to come on without turning on the thermostat. When you do turn the thermostat on you are manually closing the electrical contacts that make the oven work. I would recommend checking the wiring harness connector for shorted wires & if that checks out okay then I would replace the thermostat. Please see the attached images for instructions.

After reviewing the wiring diagram, the only component that sends voltage to the bake igniter is the oven thermostat. If the oven thermostat is not causing the problem then I would recommend having the wiring harness checked for shorted wires.
