Question and Answers


Why doesn't the oven element heat up in my Kenmore range?


Since you just replaced the oven bake element, then it is safe to assume that it is good. The image below shows a portion of the wiring diagram that pertains to the oven bake element. The L1 and L2 voltage supply to this element comes directly off of the EOC (Electronic Oven Control board). Since the bake element will not heat even though the broil element works, then your failure is confined to either the EOC or the wiring between the EOC and the bake element.

I you are able to access the EOC, you can check the continuity of the bake element wiring connection at this control board. Unplug the range to completely disconnect electrical power. Check the wire harness connection at the EOC using the wiring diagram below. Use a volt/ohm meter to check the resistance of the circuit though the bake element. If this circuit is open (measures infinite resistance), then you either have a wiring failure or you still have a bad bake element.

The resistance through the bake element circuit should be about the same as the resistance through the broil element circuit. If you find this to be the case, then the EOC will need to be replaced.

NOTE: You should only conduct these tests if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access the EOC. Be sure to unplug the unit before accessing internal components.
