Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know why the oven is not heating.

If it is just the bake function that is not working, it is possible that the bake element has failed.

If either the bake or the broil is working the electronic clock control has failed.

  • You can check the bake element sometimes by simply examining the surface of the element for any burn marks that would indicate it has failed.

  • You may have to pull the element out of the oven cavity to check the resistance to see if the element has an open circuit.

  • You will need a multi-meter or volt/ohm meter to check for resistance through the element.

  • If you have a meter and you are going to check the element please REMOVE POWER to the range before you start.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your 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.

  • Open the oven door and remove the racks and locate the screws that secure the element in place.

  • Pull the element out of the back wall of the oven cavity and remove one of the wire terminals.

  • Set the meter to the lowest ohm scale and touch the meter leads and zero the meter.

  • Then touch one lead to each terminal of the element to see if you get a resistance reading. It should be about 25 to 30 ohms on the scale if you have the meter calibrated.

  • If you get that resistance the element is okay and the electronic control has failed.

The part number for the bake element if you need it is: 316225001 and the part number for the electronic control is: 316455420.

  • If the control is bad you will need to slide the range out and remove the back panel and locate the electronic control.

  • The control is held in place by 4 screws.

  • With the new control in hand replace wire connectors one at a time from the old control to the new control.

I hope this will help with the oven heat problem.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

The F30 error code indicates the clock/timer has detected an open in the oven temperature probe circuit. I would check the connections on the new clock. Be sure you disconnect the power to the range before removing any panels. If you didn't get the connector on the sensor leads plugged in securely, that could cause the F30 fault code. The connector for the sensor leads has 2 violet wires in it.

If you have access to a volt/ohm meter, you can measure the resistance across the violet wires. At 75 degrees the sensor should read 1000-1200 ohms. If the sensor is good, the new clock is defective.

If you are not comfortable doing this repair, you can go to http://services.sears.com/shs/category/repair?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch and get a Sears technician to repair the range.

Q:

How do I and what do I use to clean my glass cook top?

A:

The instructions for cleaning your cook top are shown in the image below. This excerpt is from your owner's manual.

If you no longer have your owner's manual, here is a link: Owner's Manual

For stubborn stains, I recommend using a mild kitchen polish called Bar Keepers Friend. You can find this product at your local grocery store with the other powdered kitchen cleansers. This product will not harm your ceramic cook top.
