My Kenmore oven heats up to temperature and then turns itself

Customer Question
off. I turn it off...
My Kenmore oven heats up to temperature and then turns itself off. I turn it off and immediately back on again to keep the temperature around where I need it, but that's both inconvenient and imprecise. What do I need to fix in order for the oven to stay on at the appropriate temperature?

Sorry, I'm not at home and don't have it. The oven is about 8-10 years old and in good working order otherwise. It's propane fueled.

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
Once I get a model number I can get you the information you need. With no model number I can only tell you that if it initially heats up correctly then will not unless you cancel and restart the bake cycle, the control will need to be replaced. If you get the model, I can get you a link to the part and replacement instructions.

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
Thank you, my apologies for the inconvenience. Number 129 in the diagram is the oven control. It is accessed by removing the rear access cover from the control panel. That control will need to be replaced. It is pictured and available below. All connections simply unplug and plug in, making for a very easy replacement! Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

So someone who's quite handy but doesn't have specific appliance experience should be able to fix it?

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
Absolutely! It is a 15 minute job and is very easy! I can walk you through it once you receive the part.

I'm not convinced the oven control is the issue... I read a little more and others in online forums say it might be the igniter. As I said in my description of the problem, the oven initially heats to temperature, then shuts down till I "reset" by turning it off and on again. I don't want to buy a $90+ part without some certainty that it's the right one.

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
The igniter does not "reset" with the control being turned off. It either works or doesn't work. The control is what energizes the igniter and calls for heat when it needs it. If it initially heats, we know that the igniter and valve are working fine. So, when you turn the control off and back on, you are resetting the program cycle in the control.

ah, makes sense! is it okay if I don't rate you till I get the part & install it?

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
Of course! And, if it makes you more comfortable, I can link you to the part from another company that is more expensive, but allows returns on installed parts!

I looked at the Appliance Zone policy and it said 90 days no questions... is that incorrect?


 

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
They won't allow returns if it has been installed unless it is defective.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

ah - okay, what is the site that will take installed returns?

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
That part is available from them below.

It says "Electronic clock kit. *Wiring could differ from original, will possibly need to be installed by an appliance repairperson."


 


How likely is it that a repairperson will need to install it? And why does it say "clock kit" when I need oven control? Does the part control both?


 

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 years ago
That is the clock/control. Some have an extra wiring harness, but it comes with easy to follow, pictured instructions.
