My oven won't heat up.  When I turn the temp. knob, the digital reading only goes to about 280, and that is about the max temp. too.  That seems to be the only problem with it.

Unit made by GE for sears, almost sounds like it has been changed to Celsius from Fahrenheit....because in C the highest it will go is 275, see if your use and care manual gives instructions for changing this to see if this is what has happened..

Ya, I read that in other posts, but I finally found my manual and it doesn't say anything about a Celcius setting.  It does say that warm should be 170F, so I turned the knob to warm and it showed 170F.  I can turn the knob to any temperature up to about 280F, any temperature after that just goes straight back to 280, its weird.

Since this is GE I have no way of finding a tech sheet either, perhaps someone else will know how to check this for your unit...

Anyone else have an idea?  Do you need a tech sheet?  I don't want to go out buy another oven if I don't have to.  The problem can't be that difficult, can it?  What would you do if this wasn't a GE?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Posted 19 September 2007 - 04:13 PM

kenmore is no different up here in canada, its next to impossible to find any info on them, but GE did make several electronic over controls that did real flakey things when the knob was turned, numbers jump eratic etc, those controls would be from the 80's those have one plasic knob that turns, and 4 to 6 plastic push button knobs

we might to be able to find some info if you open the back panel and give us the part number off the control, number will be something like wb24m36(made that up but it gives you an idea which number to look for)

The only stupid question is the one not asked

so far i cant find any info on your kenmore, the manuals are not available online for me to see what might cause your problem

as per your earlier post, this difficulty is not cause its a GE its cause its a kenmore.... they guard manuals and parts lists so consumers are forced to use their service

now even if your control was switched to celcius, that 280C would be one hot oven and yours is not

from what i have found yours is a gas oven, correct? can you tell if the burner is lighting, the oven bottom should be removable to watch for flame... your might have no flame and just an igntor warming the oven slightly, but i would think you could still set the control higher

Yes it is a gas oven.  I removed the bottom and did watch the flame light.  It took a minute or so, but it did light.  I turned the knob high and low but the flame didn't change, but I don't know if it would since it wasn't pre-heated.  My wife just cooked some bisciuts in it and at 280, which the oven said it was pre-heated to, and it took about 30 minutes, so it is not getting hot.  The stove part works fine, it lights and adjusts just like it always has.

btw its funny that you say GE is not the problem, because my dad fixes X-ray equipment and they have the same problem with GE hiding stuff from them.

Thanks for your help.

the flame size does not change by changing the oven control, the oven regulates temp by turning the flame on and off, flame size is always the same

did you notice if the flame cycled on and off during the baking or did it burn the entire 20 minutes?

yes, watch it for a bit, you can set it a bit lower like 250 and see if the flame goes on/off

from what you have said so far i'd say you need that electronic oven control

the samurai has a link on the form for a parts supplier that allows you to return parts for any reason so on the off chance it doesn't fix your prob it can be returned

I put it on 250.  When it hit pre-heated I checked it and the flame was off.  I then let the heat out by opening the door.  The flame came back on and reheated its self.  So that part seams to be working.

yes but that is also the same part not allowing you to set the temp above 280

I know its been a while but, that was the fix.  Replaced it, very simple job and the oven works great.  Thank you very much, your advice is definately worth the $5.

Well maybe not.  My wife tried to bake a couple things lately and both times it took a while longer than it was supposed to.  So Im wondering, did I miss something.  There were a couple of wire that had different lables on the older part than the new part, but I thought every thing was OK, should I switch them?  Is there an adjustment I could make to the new part?
