Hi, the oven is a Kenmore, about 3 yrs old. Recently, have noticed that when it is "off" (burners included), the oven turns on, for about 13 seconds. I would say it probably turns on every 2 hours..

Hi,

**the oven is a Kenmore, about 3 yrs old**

Model#? Gas, electric? Range or build in oven?

http://www.applianceaid.com/model.html Some model# helps.

**the oven turns on, for about 13 seconds. I would say it probably turns on every 2 hours**

What turns on? Ignitor, electric element, pilot light, control display? Goes back off on it's own?

Thanks, Jeff it's a Model 362.72220

Gas, Range. The oven ignites. All burner knobs, and oven knob are in the "off" position. I can hear it come on, and I check by opening the broiler door, and see the flames. This lasts about 13 seconds and it goes "off" by itself. The flames are no longer coming out. It occurs randomly, say every two hours.

G'day,

**Model 362.72220**

Too short, I found 362.72220200 362.72220201 362.72220202 362.72220203 362.72220204

Double check the wires to and from the hot surface ignitor/glow coil in the oven, if one is shorted to the cabinet/ground the ignitor can glow on it's own and come on. Failing that, likely a bad oven control closing it's contacts in the off position and turning the hot surface ignitor on when it shouldn't be on.

Example of the control...
