Question and Answers

Q:

Problems with my Kenmore Drop in Range oven

A:

Check to see if the broiler works properly. If that broiler heats up to the proper temperature and works, then you could have a problem with that bake element. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the range and check that element. Here is a link for a video that shows how to remove that element: Bake Element Replacement . This video shows how to test that element using a volt/ohm meter: Bake and Broil Element Testing . That element should measure between 10 and 40 ohms of resistance (probably around 17 ohms). If that bake element is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order that element from this page: Bake Element for Kenmore Range 629.45765 . Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breakers to completely disconnect electrical power before accessing and replacing that element. Do not leave the wires for that element exposed and power the range back up. The ends of those wires could short out against the metal cabinet and cause problems. Reconnect the wires to the element or leave the power disconnected until you complete that repair.

If that bake element is okay, you could have a wiring problem, a bad control board or a number of other failures that would prevent the oven from heating properly. I provided a wiring diagram with the bake and broil element circuits traced in colors below this response. You can shut off the house circuit breakers for the range and check that wiring. These initial tips may help you fix that oven heating problem. Reply with additional details if you need more assistance diagnosing and repairing this failure.
