Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my oven heat above 350 degrees?

A:

You did not indicate if the broiler element will come on and heat or not when the oven is cold. The broil element and bake element are both used and cycled on an off during the bake mode. I added some theory of oven operation in the image below.

Based on your symptom the likely failure could be a bad bake or broil element since both are used during the bake mode. See image below. It's not likely a control failure or temperature sensor. You can disconnect and test the oven sensor probe and the bake and broil elements using an ohm meter. When the oven sensor is at room temperature the resistance of oven temperature sensor should measure 15 ohms at 75 degrees. The broil element should measure 17 ohms and the bake element should measure 22 ohms. You should be able to diagnose the failure with the information given. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply to the range before disconnecting and testing the broil and bake elements.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore oven preheat to 350?

A:

Without a model number, I can only provide the following general tips at this time:

  • Let the oven cycle a couple of times to see if it will get up to the proper temperature. It may take longer to preheat properly.
  • Use the directions in your installation guide to check the oven flame. You may need to adjust it.
  • Check the gasket around the oven door. Make sure that the oven door is closing properly.
  • Check the gas shut-off valve to make sure that it is fully open. Make sure that you have an adequate gas supply provided to the range.
  • Most controls have an adjustment of up to 35 or 40 degrees. You can attempt to adjust the control by using the directions in your owner's manual if your range has this feature.
If these tips don't help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your oven or range. We will be glad to help you further.

Q:

RANGE WILL NOT HEAT TO 350 DEGREES

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, it sounds like one of the two oven elements is not heating. First, since the broil element is visible, from a cold start, turn the broiler on and see if the broil element is getting hot. If it does, I suspect it could have a faulty hidden bake element or possible a faulty electronic oven control. The oven control alternates the broil element along with the bake element during the bake cycle and this is why both oven elements must heat in order to reach the set bake temperatures.

I strongly suggest calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair your oven.

 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.
