Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

First; are you certain the thermometer you're using is accurate and/or have it positioned too close to the bake and broil element.

The oven temperature can be adjusted 35 degrees up or down if needed but not 100 degrees. If it's heating up 100 degrees higher than what is the oven control is set for then it may have a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or possibly a faulty oven control. The oven sensor is located inside the oven cavity, attached to the rear wall of the cavity. As the oven temperature increases, the resistance of the oven sensor increases. The resistance is measured by the electronic control to determine the oven temperature.

To Access Oven Sensor:

  1. Disconnect the appliance from power source before servicing.
  2. Open oven door and remove two (2) screws securing sensor to oven cavity. Gently pull through cavity wall.
  3. Disconnect the oven sensor at the connector and remove/replace as necessary.
  4. Reattach the connector and reassemble.

To check oven sensor:

  1. Access sensor wires as outlined under sensor removal.
  2. Set meter to RX1000 Scale.
  3. At 100 degrees the oven sensor should measure approximately 1143 Ohms.

If the oven temperature sensor measures at approximately 1143 Ohms then the sensor is Okay. Next, reconnect the sensor and access the sensor connection where it connects to the control board and disconnect it. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply before accessing the control board. Re-measure the resistance across the two lead and it should measure the same. If it measures the same and the oven is 100 degrees too hot, I would have to assume the oven control is faulty.

I highly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

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 .

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom it sounds like a faulty oven control/clock assembly or maybe it's in a "Control Lockout" but then again it would lock out both upper and lower oven controls so it most likely has a faulty oven control/clock assembly.

Control Lockout: The control can be Locked Out by pressing Setup and then 4. When locked "Control Locked" will be displayed and scroll twice. Press Auto Set to toggle between Locked and Unlocked. The control locktout will not lock out the timer, clock, setup options or oven light.

ELECTRONIC CLOCK AND OVEN CONTROL

To Gain Access To Electronic Oven Control:

  1. Disconnect the appliance from power source before servicing.
  2. Remove two screws securing backguard panel to the end caps.
  3. Remove two (2) screws securing backguard panel to backguard housing. (Screws located between control panel and main top).
  4. Lift backguard panel up, tilt forward, and lay panel on protected surface of main top for servicing.
  5. Remove two (2) screws securing control mounting plate to backguard.
  6. Remove four (4) screws securing control to control mounting plate.
  7. Disconnect wiring and remove/replace control.
  8. Reverse procedure to replace.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wondering if the entire element to get red.

Great picture.

Because the elements are a resistance part they will only give you what they get in voltage.

You might want to check how close you are to 240 volts at the back of the range. .

If you are closer to 208 volts the whole element will not get red.

Even at 236 volts the element will not glow red all the way back to the support.

If the supply voltage is good then I would look to see if you have a connection or wiring problem to the elements.

Please reply and let me know what you find.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update. The more I look at the picture of your element and the clean demarcation of where the red stops on a clean line leads me to believe since you have already changed it once that this is normal. Also please do not leave the foil on the bottom of the oven. I am assuming you just used it to help show off the element. If you want to check for voltage do it at the range outlet. Thank you for using Manage My Life. Sam A.
