Customer Question

Hi Tyler -- This time it's a Kenmore electric range. It was making a lot of clicking noises when the oven was heating. I checked the temperature sensor, and it seemed to ohm correctly. I replaced the control panel, and when the oven is heating it still makes a lot of clicking noises. When the broil element is heating, it does not.

Clicking noises are common during baking because they cycle the elements on and off a lot to maintain an even temperature, the bake and broil elements, especially if it is a Frigidaire built product. Is it heating correctly and the concern was just the clicking?

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This is an oven that has been in constant use, and has recently developed this constant clicking issue. It is a model 911.93402992, S/N 2F1930350.

Thank you. Did you happen to test the voltage and watch what happens during the clicking to see if maybe there is a voltage loss that is causing the issue? Is the oven not keeping temperature?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not checked voltage. Both the bake and broil elements heat up quickly to an orange glow, so I assumed that the voltage had to be there. It seems the oven is fine temperature-wise.

How rapid is the clicking and does it stay the same, even after the oven is preheated?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When we turn the oven on to pre-heat there is an audible single click. As the oven is preheating it occasionally clicks twice in a row. “click, click’. It seems preheating takes longer than it should, but not much to compare against. Once, the broiler would not heat after having had the oven pre-heated. The oven does eventually preheat and reach temperature. It does seem to bake just fine.

Well, it can really only be an issue with the control or voltage to it. If all wiring is fine and the voltage remains steady, I would suspect the control, whether it is new or not.
