Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause my bake temperature to be inconsistant?

A:

Having a properly working range is important. I did some research on your model number but was not able to find a solution. Your expert will help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. If you would like to look into Sears doing the repair here is a link for Sears Home Services.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. First, I recommend recalibrating the oven (image one). If the recalibration doesn't correct the issue, make sure the oven door is providing a proper seal. If it's not it won't allow the oven to get up to the proper temperature. If the oven door seal is good, then I recommend testing the bake (316206000) and broil (316200600) element with an ohms/volt meter to make sure they're reading properly. Those elements should measure between 10 and 20 ohms of resistance. Based on the wattage ratings, the bake element should measure close to 16.5 ohms of resistance. The broil element should measure around 14.5 ohms of resistance. A few ohms above or below those readings would be normal. I recommend that you check the bake and broil element circuits from the electronic control board in the console. Unplug the range and access the back of that control board. Remove the back panel of the console to access that control board. The second image show a drawing of the control board with the wire connections marked. You can measure the resistance of the bake element through the yellow and orange wires. Measure the resistance through the broil element through the blue and orange wires. You can also check for a short to the metal cabinet ground of the range by measuring the resistance between each of those wires and the bare metal cabinet beside the control board. You should measure infinite resistance or Ol -- open load during that test for each of the wires (yellow, blue and orange to cabinet ground). If those circuits are okay, then you should have no further problems with the range after replacing that control board. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

There is not a reset on the oven circuit. You can reset the electronic oven control board by unplugging the range for 5 minutes. Since you replaced the oven element, I suspect that you already had that power disconnected for a while. You can try that reset again. If the oven still won't heat, then you could have a problem with the electronic oven control board. A wiring failure could also prevent the oven elements from heating. You can unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the back of the control board in the console. Remove the back panel behind the console to access the control board. The wiring diagram for your range is shown in the image below with the circuits through the elements traced in wire colors. If you find a wiring connection problem, then you may be able to fix this problem yourself.

If you have a volt/ohm meter and want to perform some more advanced checks on the circuits, reply with additional details and we will assist you further troubleshooting and diagnosis tips.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

The capacity of the oven in this range is 5.3 cu. ft.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The most likely failure is the electronic oven control/clock assembly. I added an image below of the bake and broil circuits. If the control board or relay fails (L2 out or one the bake/broil relay) the oven element will not get the 220 volts needed to heat.

If you do not find any burnt wire connections in the red or black circuits, replacing the electronic oven control/clock assembly will most likely repair your oven. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panels.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
