Question Oven turned on by itself
Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Recently came home after being away for several hours and could smell something burning. The oven (inside) was very hot. The element was heating, but the oven was not "on" (nothing was turned on - i.e. all of the dials were off and the LED temp reading was off).

I turned on the oven and the burners, and they (and LED temp reading) came on. Not knowing how oven came on, I turned power off at breaker. Oven had not been used for four days. Element was replaced last fall.

Any suggestions?
