Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the upper surface elements will operate normally then we know the Kenmore Electric Range 79045782300 is getting the proper voltage supply. According to the wiring diagram I do not see any thermal fuse or thermal circuit breakers in the bake/broil circuit or in the line one or line two voltage supplies. There is a thermal circuit breaker connected in series with the oven temperature sensor but if it failed a fault code would display on the clock/oven control.

You did not indicate if the oven control/clock is powered up or not. If the clock/oven control is powered up and you able to program bake or broil and neither bake or broil element will heat then I would have to assume the oven control board has failed or it may have a burnt wire connection.

If you are getting a F1 or F3 then it could mean a faulty oven temperature sensor, open thermal circuit breaker or a faulty oven control/clock.

In order to diagnose the failure will require making live voltage checks and I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and you feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling for service. If you feel confident and have the proper equipment, reply in the thread with additional details for further instructions.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why is oven mod#790 comming on by itself

A:

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom link for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

Your details seem to indicate that the bake element is heating when the bake mode is not set. The fan that you hear is a cooling fan for the control board in the console. There is a possibility that the bake element fused a relay in that clock control board that is in the console of the range. That would cause the circuit traced in yellow on the wiring diagram below to be completed and the bake element would heat constantly. Since the element is heating constantly, that cooling fan circuit that is traced in red would be completed when the heat in the oven caused that thermal switch to close and start the fan. If this accurately describes your failure, then you will probably need to replace that clock control board (part 318185450) in the console. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the oven before accessing internal components.

If the element in the oven is not heating and that fan is running constantly, then that thermal switch for the fan circuit will need to be replaced.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

On something like this as long as you are setting the clock correctly & it will not stay set you will need to replace the ERC (clock). I recommend replacing the ERC part number 318185450 $159.50 www.searspartsdirect.com Remember to disconnect power before attempting to access the console.
