Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like it may have a faulty broil element or Electronic Oven Control (EOC). The bake and broil elements are both used during the bake cycle. I recommend testing the bake and broil elements for continuity. You will need to access the terminals to the bake and broil element from the rear of the range. You will need to disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the panel from behind the oven.

I added a YouTube video showing how to test the bake and broil elements for continuity. If both elements test Okay, the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) has likely failed.

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 .

Thank you Joey. I watched some videos on you tube on testing and repairing the bake heating element. I looked in my oven and the only element thats inside is the at the top inside of oven. Is this the only element ? It is in good condition but i will remove and test it. This element is for broil and bake. Is that correct? model # 790.94479802- Kenmore elec.

A:

Luke: You also have an element under the floor of the oven. It's called a hidden bake element. It's best to check the continuity of it too from the rear. You should see the wires and terminals of the hidden bake element from the rear of the range.

A:

Luke: if you can see the wires where they connect to the hidden bake element you should be able to disconnect the two wires and ohm the bake element out. You may not have removed the correct panel in order to access the bake element. The panel will be as wide as the bake element. You may have to break the little metal tabs securing the panel in order to remove the cover.

A:

Luke: Based on your measurements; the bake and broil elements are Okay. This leaves a faulty Electronic Oven Control board. Replace the oven control board located inside the console and your oven should operate normally.
