Kenmore oven repair issues we can handle
Regardless of the type of oven you have, the appliance repair experts at Sears Home Services can perform quality Kenmore oven repairs for problems big or small. A service call involves diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and making repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your oven's life.
Oven won't turn on
There are various reasons your Kenmore oven won't turn on. If your oven has power and the child lock is not engaged (if applicable), there are several possible problems.
Less expensive fixes include a damaged temperature sensor, infinite switch (electric) or igniter (gas), or a blown fuse. A more expensive repair is to replace the electronic control board which may have failed due to a power surge, a bake element that has shorted out, or some other system failure.
If it's a gas oven and there's also a problem with your gas cooktop, there could be an issue with the house's natural gas line.
Oven won't heat to right temperature
If your Kenmore oven won't heat to the proper temperature or is overcooking, undercooking, or cooking unevenly, the temperature sensor, temperature control thermostat, or the heating elements might need replacement, or the oven may need to be recalibrated.
Oven door won't close or unlock
If your oven door won't close, it's likely a problem with the door's lock, seal, or hinges. If your oven door won't unlock and you don't have a manual release, there could be an issue with the oven temperature sensor, door lock assembly, or the electronic control board.
You can try disconnecting power to the appliance for 30 seconds to see if that will reset the control board and release the lock. In some ovens, you can initiate the self-clean cycle, then cancel once the lock motor stops to try to reset.
Keep in mind that ovens can take up to an hour to cool after self-cleaning, and the lock may not disengage until the oven has completely cooled.
Oven light won't turn on
Try replacing the bulb yourself. If that doesn't work, it's probably time to call an appliance repair expert. The problem could be a faulty socket, light switch, connecting wire, or electronic control board.
Preventive oven maintenance
The most important thing you can do to prevent oven malfunctions is to keep the interior of the oven clean. Scheduling annual appliance service ensures your Kenmore oven will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the Kitchen Appliance Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect your oven and other kitchen appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, and water or gas leaks, while also cleaning internal components.
