Question and Answers


oven does not heat up


When doing home repairs, it is sometimes possible to replace parts that turn out to not be the problem. While you wait for the expert response, you might check the second link below for some answers to parts returns in the FAQ's at Sears Parts Direct. I also added a link to Sears Home Services, which can save time and effort by letting an experienced technician diagnose and make repairs. I hope these links help.

Thanks for adding that model number. Before you return that element, you may want to replace that electronic control board (part 316557118) that has the relay. Check to see if the oven works with the electronic control board and the new element installed. There are times when a broken or shorted element can damage the bake relay on that control board. You may need to replace both components to fix this problem. If the old bake element has no apparent visible damage, then you can test it with a volt/ohm meter as shown in this brief repair video: Bake and Broil Element Testing . The reason that I recommend that you test that old element is that it could have a short that would damage the new control board if you install it back into the oven. It should measure between 10 and 40 ohms of resistance during the above test. If you do not have a volt/ohm meter, you can normally find one at your local Sears or hardware store for less than $20. The Sears Parts Store in Allentown may be able to test that element for you (I can't promise that they will). If that element is okay, then you should be able to return that new element that you purchased if the old bake element works after replacing that electronic oven control board. If that element is bad, then both the control board and the element will need to be replaced to fix this problem. There is a slight chance that you have a wiring failure between the element and the control board. You may want to unplug the range and check the yellow wire between the control board and the bake element. You can also check the orange wire that is attached to the bake element to make sure that it is connected properly. If those wiring connections are okay, then replacing that clock control board should fix your problem. I do not know whether that Allentown parts store will have that clock control board part 316557118 in stock. If not, they should be able to order it for you. You can also order it from this link if necessary: Clock Control Board for Kenmore Electric Range 790.92209012 . Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to replace that clock control board: Range Clock Control Board Replacement . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components. NOTE: You may need to replace the overlay on that control board unless you can reuse the original one as shown in that video.

If you need to return that bake element, you may be able to complete that transaction at the Allentown parts store. I am not sure. If not, you should be able to arrange the return through the Sears PartsDirect website help line. Their phone number is 1-800-252-1698.

I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .
