Question and Answers

Q:

I set my kenmore gas range oven to bake at 375 and after the preheat beeps I looked at an oven temp gauge i placed in the oven and it shows 300.

A:

Oven temperature is very important with all the holiday cooking getting underway. I see that your owner's manual does have a section to adjust the oven temperature if it is off. It is on page 20 of the link below. If it does not work, reply to this thread so the expert will have the additional information. Hope this helps!

The oven light is not normally affected by the cycling of the oven burner. If the light is going on and off, you could have a problem with the oven door or the door switch. Check to see if the oven door is closing properly. Check the door switch plunger for damage. You may need to replace the door switch or the door hinges to fix this type of problem.

You did not indicate whether the oven is heating properly. The burner will normally not cycle on and off that quickly. It will normally stay on several minutes before cycling off when maintaining temperature in the oven. You can pull the bottom panel of the oven up and view the operation of the burner more closely if necessary. If it is short cycling as you describe, then you could have a weak igniter. The theory of operation for the glow bar igniter system is shown in the image below. I recommend that you carefully observe the burner to see if it is actually short cycling. If it is, then you will likely need to replace the igniter.

These tips may help you resolve these range problems. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Thanks for getting back to me. I apologize I should have indicated that its the 'oven light' on the control panel cycling on and off and not the light bulb inside the oven. I will observe the burner and provide more details.

So here is what happens. Set the bake temp to 375. 'Bake, 'Preheat and Oven' lights are all lit on the control panel. When oven reaches 375, both the 'preheat and oven light' shut off on the control panel (bake light remains on). After about a minute to 90 seconds, the 'oven' light on the control panel comes on and stays on for approximately 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, the 'oven' light turns off and the process repeats until oven is turned off. I removed the bottom storage draw to determine what I could see. The only time I saw anything glowing was when the 'oven' light on the control panel was on. Once again, thanks for any info

Sorry that I misunderstood about the oven light. The situation that you are describing can be normal in certain situations. If often takes a while for the igniter to heat up and the burner to ignite. If the burner is igniting quickly after the igniter begins to glow and the temperature in the oven is properly maintained then the system is probably working properly. Check the oven door to make sure that it is closing and sealing properly. Some heat will normally escape around the seals of the oven door and through the vent at the top of the door. There is also a vent on the left side of the console that will allow some hot are to escape the oven cavity as the oven heats and the air expands. If you have excessive heat escaping through the door because it is not closing properly, this can cause the burner to cycle on more often. If you find no problems with heat escaping through the oven door and the oven heats properly then the cycling is likely normal.
