Question and Answers

Q:

My oven is not heating up.

A:

Loud pops coming from the oven never bode well. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check a previous expert post for a similar issue. I attached the link below. Hope this helps.

A:

I know it's frustrating when the oven stops working. The information you have received from Barbara is very good. The most likely reason it's not heating will be due to a failed ERC but the loud pop could also indicate one of the burners has failed. A visual inspection of both elements may show a burnt spot. If the elements look ok the ERC will be the most likely problem. A voltage check can be made, to determine for sure. If you have a meter and feel confident you can safely make a voltage check, first disconnect power to the unit. Now remove the back cover and place your meter leads on the terminals marked L1 and L2 in, on the ERC. Reconnect the power and you should read 240 volts. Now remove the lead from the L2 in terminal and place it on the L2 out and place the other lead on the BK terminal. Set the oven to bake and you should read 240 volts again. This can also be done with the BR terminal and then set the control to broil. If you do not get this reading, the ERC # 316557108 will need to be replaced. If you do get the 240 volt reading, the element will need to be replaced but it's very unlikely to have both elements fail at the same time. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

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 .

A:

The answer Barbara H sent has good instructions in it. The part number for the hinge kit is different.

The door hinges should be replaced. The part number for the hinge kit is 5304445530 and the cost is $43.09. The kit contains 2 hinges and you can order it at [www.searspartsdirect.com].

To replace the hinges the oven door must be removed from the range and disassembled. If you are not comfortable doing the repair you can go to www.searshomeservices.com and schedule service for a Sears technician to do the repair.

Q:

Follow up question: How do I remove the oven temperature sensor probe? I do not see screws on the inside cavity of the oven.

A:

Since you don't see screws on the inside of the oven cavity for the probe, you will need to unplug the range and remove the back panel. Be careful. The metal edges of this back panel are usually sharp. Protective gloves are recommended. Once you remove the lower back panel, you will see the violet wires of the probe plugged into a wire harness. Unplug the wiring harness connection. Set your volt/ohm meter to measure resistance on the appropriate scale. Make sure that the leads for the meter are plugged in properly. It does not matter which ohm meter lead you stick into which side of the probe connection. Either way will work. You should measure around 1100 ohms depending on your room temperature as noted in the previous answer.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and we will be glad to help you again.
