Question and Answers

Q:

oven/broiler won't work 79096222404 Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the range. You are correct in that this unit does not have a thermal limit. Even though you have replaced both the element and control, since both the bake and broil elements do not work, some checks will need to be made. First, disconnect the power and then remove the back control panel to access the control. Now place the meter leads between the L1 and L2 in terminal connections on the control. Do not disconnect any wires or connections. Now, reconnect the power and check to see if there is 240 volts between these terminals. If the voltage is there, remove the meter lead from the L2 in terminal to the L2 out terminal. If the voltage is there also, it will indicate a problem with the elements or the wire between the element and control. If the voltage is not at this check, the control # 316557238 will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Easiest check would be to turn on the broiler and see if it lights up. You'll know almost immediately and it will cause no harm.

A:

I know what it's like when the oven won't heat. Based on your symptom and details the oven control board has most likely failed when the bake element shorted/burnt out. The control board has line two relay which must close in order to provide the line 2 (L2) voltage to bake and broil elements. I added a link below with an answer from a previous question. It also has a wiring diagram showing the circuits. The bake and broil elements must have 220 volts which means it needs both L1 and L2 voltages in order to heat. If there is no L2 voltage supply the back and broil elements will not heat.

Why did my oven quit working?
