Kenmore Range - Problems with Reheat model 911.95402000
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:23:22 PM »
Kenmore Electric Range 911.95402000,
Can any one help solve the following problem/
The oven takes much to long to preheat to the desired temperature.
In my test, I set the temperature to 400 F. The baking element comes on and glows red. At 200 F +_, the preheat indicator light comes on. The baking element appears to change behavior to a maintain temperature, cycling between on and off with a much slower rate of temperature rise. I found that if I reset the preheat light by turning the temperature knob until the preheat light goes off and then set the temperature control to 400 F., the baking element stops cycling and becomes a steady res. Shortly afterwards, the preheat light comes on and I can repeat the process until the 400 F. is achieved. STRANGE BEHAVIOR.
Any suggestions?

Sounds like a control board.The bake unit should not cycle at all until it gets to the preset temperature.

I located the Technical Data Sheet for the range. I reviewed the circuiting wiring diagram and the associated chart. When the oven is calling for heat the bake element is supposed to alternate with the broil element. I have observed that the broil element does not come on during preheat or after the preheat light comes on. Apparently the cycling of the baking element that I observed previously is normal except for the fact that the broil element does not come on when the bake element is inactive. The wiring diagram graphically shows a rectangle that contains the control swithes for the broil element and the bake element and a symbol for a transformer or relay, connections to the oven temperature sensor and connections to the door latch switch and a ground connection. Anyone know the name of the component that I have described? Is this part the likely culpret for the broil element not being energized when there is a call for heat? What would cause the preheat light to come on and the preheat buzzer to indicate that the designated has been reached when it is obvious that the oven has not reached the required temperature?
