Thanks in Advance for any help!
I was baking ribs in the electric oven (Kenmore, Sears here in USA)and it
went berserk. I could not get the element to shut down. I turned it off at
the oven control and 5 minutes later, it was still going full out. I had to
shut the main circuit breaker for the oven off let it cool down and
disconnect the element in the back of the oven so I could at least use the
rest of the range.
Anybody got any ideas? Someone told me the elements can just go out of
control and burn themselves up, but I don't want to spent $ 65 on an element
and have that not be the problem. I have looked through a couple of
troubleshooting guides and none has a problem that sounds anything like my
I'd have a repairman look at it except I'd have to undo the electricity
(it's hardwired) take it out of the cabinet and haul it 100 miles to the
service man. I live out in the wild west 100 miles from the nearest town
with a repairman.
