I am sorry to hear about the problem that you are having with your Kenmore Range Model 665.92173300.

 

The location of the thermal fuse for the broil element is shown in the image below. You can unplug the range and access that fuse as shown below. You can check to see if a blown fuse is causing your problem by connecting the wires that go to that fuse together and taping them with electrical tape so the wires don't short out to the metal cabinet. Reassemble the range and plug it back in. Briefly start the oven in the broil mode to see if it heats properly. Make sure the broil element cycles off properly when the interior oven temperature heats up to 500 degrees (close the oven door so that the oven sensor will detect that temperature in the oven cavity). If the broil element works properly during that brief test, then you should be able to fix your problem by replacing that thermal fuse. Do not continue to operate the range with that thermal fuse bypassed. Restore the original wiring configuration to that fuse and order the replacement part. You can order that fuse from this page: Thermal Fuse Part 3196548 for Kenmore Range Model 665.92173300.

 

Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

 

Note: If that thermal fuse was blown, you will normally need to determine what caused that fuse to blow if possible before replacing it. A bad relay in the control board, a short in the wiring or a problem with the broil element could cause that failure. There are times when the thermal fuse will blow due to a "nuisance trip" where the fuse experiences high temperature due to broiling items that have a high fat content. If you suspect that the fuse was blown due to a nuisance trip, then replacing the fuse should fix your problem without further component diagnosis and repair. 


If the broil element does not heat after bypassing that thermal fuse, then you may have a failed broil element (even though it does not appear to be broken), a wiring failure or a problem with the electronic oven control board in the console. Reply with additional details if you need more help diagnosing and repairing this failure.

 

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the range, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services Range Repair.

I can understand how frustrating it can be when your oven is not working properly. The image below will provide the instructions on how to remove the drawer from the range. To replace the element just follow these directions:

  1. Disconnect the range from the power supply by disconnecting the power cord or by flipping both circuit breakers OFF dedicated for the range inside your circuit breaker box.
  2. Removed the four screws that hold the element in place.
  3. Pull the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires.
  4. Reverse the procedure to install the bake element.

I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why won't the oven heat?

A:

I suspect you are referring to the upper oven not working. If both the bake and broil elements are not heating at all, the most common reason will be a defective control. Before replacing the control # 8524346, I recommend checking voltage at the board from the black wire at P6-4 to the red wire at N.0. for 240 volts (see picture). If there is 240 volts to it, I suggest making one last check on the element terminals, to see if there is burnt or broken wire connection. To remove the elements, remove the 2 screws holding them in place and they can be pulled out. If the connections are good and there is 240 volts to the control, the control will need to be replaced. Before making any of the above checks, make sure the power has been disconnected to the range. The control is available at SearsPartsDirect . If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
