Hello Michele. Thanks for adding that model number. I can't promise a quick fix but we can provide you with some issues to check.

Your symptoms point to a wiring failure or a bad clock control board in the console. It would be highly unusual for both the bake and broil elements to fail at one time. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on that back of the clock control board in the range. Here is a brief repair video that shows how to access (and replace) that clock control board in the console: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just access that back of it (with the range unplugged ) so that you can check the wiring connections. The first image below shows the wiring diagram for the bake and broil element circuits. The second image shows the location of those wires on the clock control board. Check the red, orange, blue and yellow wires to make sure that they are all properly connected.

Look for a burn mark or visible damage to the back of that circuit board. If the control board is apparently damaged, it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that clock control board is 316557118. Here is a direct link for that part: Clock Control .

If you find no wiring failures or apparent damage to the clock control board, you can check the resistance through the bake and broil circuits using a volt/ohm meter (with the range still unplugged ). Remove the orange wire and check the resistance between that orange wire and the yellow wire (this checks the bake circuit). You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms in that circuit (usually around 25 ohms of resistance). Perform the same check between the orange and the blue wires (broil circuit). If you measure the proper resistance through those circuits, this indicates that the wiring and elements are okay. Replacing the clock control board in this situation will probably be necessary.

Further analysis of this failure would require live voltage checks. Those tests are dangerous and should normally be conducted only by a service technician using proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles).

This information may help you fix this oven failure on your own. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .
