A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Generally speaking when your range over heats it should have displayed a fault code (F10) indicating a runaway temperature. Since you did not indicate any fault codes then I must assume the failure is either a shorted bake or broil element or possibly a faulty oven temperature sensor probe.

You can test the oven temperature sensor and the bake and broil elements by disconnecting the components and measuring the resistance using an ohm meter.

I added a YouTube video I found showing how to test the oven sensor and one on how to test the oven elements .

NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before removing the oven temperature sensor and oven elements. If the oven elements and oven sensor tests okay, then the failure is likely the oven control board.

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 .

Parts can be looked up and ordered from Sears PartsDirect .

Q:

Why are both large surface burners not working on my Kenmore range?

A:

On something like this you will need to use a volt/ohm meter in order to find the problem. If the surface unit switch has 240volts in across L1 to L2 & 0volts out across H1 to H2 with the switch turned on then we know that the switch is bad. If you read 240volts out across H1 to H2 then the wiring between the switch & element will need checked. You can purchase the surface unit switches at most appliance parts stores.
