Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Elite gas double oven range electric control panel not working but time is showing

A:

This range does have a Sabbath mode that is described on page 15 of your manual. This will not likely be causing your problem. The Sabbath mode will show Sab bATH in the display and will only last for 72 hours. It will affect the functions on the display. If you suspect that the control is stuck in the Sabbath mode, try pressing and holding the CLOCK button for 3 deliberate seconds. Sab bATH should then flash in the display for 5 seconds and the the control will return to the time of day.

Your symptoms seem to indicate that the control is not working properly. The Sabbath mode should clear itself after 72 hours according to your owner's manual. Since the control works after locking and unlocking the panel, you may not be in the Sabbath mode. If the control continues to malfunction in the manner that you are describing, you will likely need to schedule a service call. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you are confident in your technical ability to safely access the control board by unplugging the range and removing the back panel, then you may be able to fix this problem yourself. Removing and replacing the control board is not a complicated repair. Submit more details and the full model number of your range if you need more help. The model number on most Kenmore Elite ranges with double ovens is on the side of the opening for the larger oven cavity.

Thanks for the reply...the number on the side of opening of larger oven cavity is W10141731 A. The # of the tech sheet taped to back of unit, showing electrical information, is Part No. W10179641A. There is also another detailed schematic with part # W10181766. Is this truly something that I should be trying to tackle on my own or should I have Sears service come out? The unit is probably less than two years old, maybe warranty will help. If it is a simple solution, could you elaborate on how you replace control board? Thanks

My 2-year old Kennmore Elite stove stuck on the Sab bATH mode but did not clear after 72 hours. Following you suggestion of pressing and holding the CLOCK button for 3 deliberate seconds, a couple of times, the panel is now working again. Still not sure how it got stucked on the Sabbath mode (what does it mean?) thanks for the suggestion, saved me a service call.

Hello Bing. There is a possibility that the clock control experienced a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines when it was in the Sabbath mode. This can sometimes cause it to get stuck in that mode. Since you were able to cancel that Sabbath mode, the clock control should continue to work normally. We are glad to hear that you were able to clear that Sabbath mode and save some money. We are always glad to help. Let us know if you ever need more assistance.

We have the same problem. The Upper and Lower stop buttons make the beeps. But all other buttons do not work. It doesn't make any sound either. The time display works. It doesn't show Sabbath mode on the screen. It also works when it wants to. After the oven has been used. I've pressed the lower stop button and it randomly beeps for no reason like this. beep...........(few mins).... beep beep....... Nothing works on the control panel when I want it to. My boyfriend thought it could be that grease has gotten up into the panel and has caused it to work when it wants to. What can the problem be?

Hello, I have a W10166292A and have had the whole electronic control board replaced less than a year ago. The oven for some reason will turn on the broiler function all on its own and we don't understand how it can do this. Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Q:

Control Panel Kenmore Gas Range Double Oven Five Burner 66578009801 Kenmore Elite Free standing - gas

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Based upon Kenmore Elite gas range model 66578009801, I do not see that the control panels have been changed, and they are still the originals. I also do not see any service flashes or recalls in regards to them, the unit looks pretty clean overall.
I am curious to know how the control panel broke, or why it keeps breaking. There could be something else amiss with the unit that is prematurely shortening the lifespan of the control panel/membrane if you're having to replace it every few years. I would recommend having a service technician come out and make a thorough diagnosis so that we can ensure nothing else on the unit is also wrong. I completely understand and agree that is you need to keep replacing the console you might as well replace it, I would feel the same way.
You could look at getting a Protection Agreement on the unit, which would warranty against defective parts. So if this happened every year, you could have us come out and replace it free of cost. Sears isn't concerned with pre-existing conditions on the unit, so if you want to get warranty pricing, call 1-800-469-4663. 
If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.
Hope this helps and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Try pressing and holding that Clock button for longer than 3 seconds. Hold it down for 5 deliberate seconds to see if this will disable that Sabbath mode. If not, the Sabbath mode should expire after 72 hours. If the Sabbath mode remains enabled and cannot be cleared, then the clock control assembly (W10194002 for black/stainless and W10194003 for white) will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before replacing components. Here is a video that shows how to replace the clock control board on that type of range: Kenmore Gas Range Clock Control Replacement . Your range may look slightly different than the one in that video but the basic repair procedure is the same.

These tips should help you fix this range problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
