Model number 665.95002102 range. Broiler element stays on

After baking tonight broiler element stayed on. Stayed on steady. Appeared to be full on high. Killed breaker and let cool. After applying power again the element came on right away. No use pressing any buttons on panel. I read several other threads here and it sounds like I need the controller. My question is can I simply unplug the connector labeled "line - Bake - Broil" and live without the oven for a short time until this is fixed. I did unplug the unit and open it up and unplugged this. No oven but is this OK? I measured all three wires to chassis ground and all were wide open. I measured Bake to Broil and measured 40 ohms. Nothing from line to anything. Everything else seems to work OK . It would be nice to have the cook top until repairs are complete.

So, is this OK to leave this like this for now?
Does it sound like the controller board or is there something else I should check?

Thanks,
Danno

As long as those wires cannot short against the metal cabinet, then you should be okay with those disconnected wires. Let us know if you need more help.

Thank you Lyle for the detailed reply. With regards to the wires I disconnected - they are not loose wires that can short. It is the connector to the control board that has the three wires Line, bake, broil and the wires are still in the housing,. As far as shorting to the cabinet I thought measuring from each of these wires to the chassis ruled that out as each was wide open to ground. I will watch the video and check the element tonight. Sounds like the board. Thank You

The wiring diagram for your range is shown in the image below. You probably have a stuck broil relay on that clock control board in the console that is causing the broil element to heat constantly. The L2 leg of power is constantly provided to the bake and broil elements. There is a chance that the broil element is shorted to the metal cabinet but that chance is slim based on your details that the broil element heats fully. I don't recommend that you disconnect wires and power the range back up since that L2 side of the 240 volt power is constantly applied to the bake and broil elements. If you disconnect wires from the range, the wires could short to the cabinet and cause a dangerous situation. I recommend that you properly repair this failure before powering the range back up. You can check that broil element using a volt/ohm meter as shown in this brief repair video:

Bake and Broil Element Testing

. That broil element should measure between 10 and 40 ohms of resistance. If it is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order that element from this page:

Broil Element for Kenmore Range 665.95002102

. If the broil element is okay, you will probably need to replace that clock control board. You can order that control from this page:

Clock Control Microcomputer for Kenmore Range 665.95002102

. Here is a link for a video that shows how to replace that control:

.

This information should help you fix that range problem without having to disconnect any wires.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:
