Question and Answers

Q:

Oven doesn't keep the correct temperature 7909621240A Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

I am sorry to hear of the fluxuating temperatures you are experiencing with the oven cavity, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.

This definitely sounds like an issue with the oven temperature probe sensor. If the sensor is defective it will cause the oven's temperature to be off and can either overheat or underheat, as you are mentioning.

I would suggest to start with the probe replacement, that should solve the problem. If by chance that doesn't work, the electronic control would need to be addressed; however, I do feel the probe is the source of the issue.

To be certain, if you wanted to test the sensor for resistance before replacing with a multimeter, at room temperature of 75 degrees, it should test at 1091 resistance ohms plus or minus 5.3 ohms.

If by chance you need to replace the sensor, I have included a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect site to view and purchase the part.

A:

I am glad you checked the range out before ordering parts or replacing the range.

We don't have the resistance of the circuit between L1 and neutral on your EOC. One hundred ohms would be about right. You are reading the resistance of the primary coil on the transformer that powers the EOC.

I don't think the EOC is defective or caused the L1 wire to melt off the terminal block.

When a wire melts on the terminal block it is usually because the wire was not tightened properly when it was installed.

I recommend you replace the terminal block and be sure the wires on it are secure. Use the range and see how it does.

You were dead on. I replaced the terminal block and everything works as it should. You just saved me $100 for a service call and I got a used terminal block for free at a local appliance store. Thank you.

Q:

What would prevent the bake and broil elements from working after replacing a burnt out and shorted broil element?

A:

Since the previous broil element burnt out and shorted in two and neither oven element will heat up after replacing the broil element, the most likely failure is the electronic oven control (EOC) board. The line two (L2) out supplied by the EOC is common to both (bake and broil) elements. The bake and broil elements will not work with out the line two (L2) voltage supply. See the image I added below of the wiring diagram. The (EOC) has likely failed and will need to be replaced. The part number of the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) is #316452310.
