We started to smell an electrical buring smell when our Kenmore oven was in use. Shortly there after the lower bake element failed to get very hot nothing over 150 degrees. I checked the continunity and it seemed ok with 16 ohms. While double checking the oven controls I saw a flame reflection indicating that there was a fire occuring inside the back housing. I pulled out the stove and unplugged it. Removing the back cover I discoved yes indeed there had been a fire. Needless to say the electronic control is ruined. I feel this controlled is defective. What has been your experience?
ANSWER Hello Bill. It is not a defect. Sometimes, the relays can stick and short causing the issue you had. You will need to order and replace the control on the unit.
