Interestingly, I was unable to pull the main power connector off of the board. I felt any more pressure would possibly crack the board, and ended up cutting the wires. (maybe there's a locking tab -...

Hi,

thanks for the reply.

The label on the oven says November 2006. I tried the Broil setting - that's not heating either. :-)

So I got it out!!!

This started because the oven stopped heating. As did the broiler.

Thanks.

The plan shows the part that would appear to require a tool to remove the oven (311) but not where that part actually is on the exploded view. Seems weird, and more confusing. :-)

My Kenmore oven - 790.47899600 - stopped heating. I'm told the thermal fuse might need reset.

Problem is, I can't get...

@Bud9051

There are a couple of...

Oops! I may have screwed up my basement!

Hi all,

Hi,

well, I took it apart, and the casing surrounding the fan didn't seem to have any marks indication the fan was touching.
