Q:

Replace oven element

A:

Here is a video that shows how to replace the broil element on a similar type of oven: Range Broil Element Replacement

Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the oven to disconnect electrical power before beginning this repair.

You should be able to use the information in that video to replace your broil element. You will probably not have to remove that sensor probe in your oven. The rest of the procedure should be about the same.

Viewing that video should give you the confidence that you need to complete this repair.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .

Q:

Why don't some of the buttons on my Kenmore oven work after replacing the timer with a new one?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Make sure the flat ribbon connector connecting the touch panel to control board is connected securely and properly. I recommend disconnecting the connector and inspect the flat ribbon for any damages where it connects at the control board. If it looks Okay and you have it connected in the proper position then I would have to assume the new control is faulty if you did not have any issues prior to the control board shorting out.

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

A:

Helmuth; It would be un-common for the new control board to fail and not allow the clock button and the buttons 1, 2 and 3 to not respond when selected. This usually indicates a key pad issue or a bad ribbon connection. This can also happen if the ribbon connection is one terminal off when re-installed onto the board. I checked previously and there is no test for the individual buttons. I guess the thing to do is to try another control and if it continues to act the same then we have to assume the touch panel is faulty.
