Good thing I already baked my orders for this week....My bottom oven element started on a mini fire and burnt. icon_mad.gif

I have had this oven 2 years and I already replaced the convection fan and the small element inside the 3 element rings on one burner burnt out about 3 months ago...I am really chocked...The dam oven cost me $2000.00...I should have bought the cheap model... icon_cry.gif


Sorry about the rant!! icon_wink.gif

this happened to me with my canon ip3000 printer. a few months after the warranty is when i started having problems with it. it stinks!! icon_mad.gif

sorry to hear about your oven. i would be upset too if i invested that much money in a product.

i wonder if there is similar complaints about the same oven. maybe you could do some research on the web and find out. thumbs_up.gif

Hopefully you are not paying someone else to replace those things for you. It is pretty easy to do yourself

Have you called Kenmore? I know the oven is out of warranty but with this many continued problems, they might be willing to do something for you. I haven't ever had experience with Kenmore's customer service, but the customer service for my sewing machine (Singer) was wonderful even after the machine was out of warranty. They replaced a broken gear for free and even set up a local shop to do repairs so I wouldn't have to ship it. It can't hurt to call, you can only be back where you are right now!

Justbeck101...No...Hubby is a carpenter by trade so he does all that..
Percussiongrrl...I have already tried...They just gave me the old song and dance that I should have bought an extended warranty....If I bought an extended warranty for everything I have ever bought...I would be broke!!

Thanks Everyone!!
