Question and Answers

Q:

Oven preheat gone wild 790.46102300

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your range. Upon researching model 790.46102300; it sounds as there may be an issue with the temperature probe. The probe reads the temperature in the unit and signals the board. The board would then cut off the element or turn it on.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Make sure that you press the up or down arrow on the clock to set the clean cycle time after pressing that Clean button. The entire procedure for setting that clean cycle is shown in the image below. Here is a link for the full manual on that range in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

This information may help you resolve that problem that you are having with the clean cycle. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you are using the proper procedure to set that clean cycle and it will not start, then you could have a failed clock control board in the console. I recommend that you have a service technician repair that type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you Lyle, how long should I set the clean time for? I don't remember having to set the cleaning time in the past, that[s probably why I needed help to shut down the cleaning cycle before! Thanks so much!

If you have light soils and spills in the oven, I recommend the 2 hour clean cycle. If you have not used the clean cycle in a while and the oven is fairly dirty, then you can use the 3 hour cycle. Try to wipe out any heavy spills with a damp cloth. Keep in mind that the oven will heat up to extremely high temperatures (over 700 degrees). This can look scary if you see some brief flare ups inside the oven cavity. Since the oven door is locked and cannot be opened, there is limited oxygen available inside the cavity. This will cause any flames to go out quickly if they do appear. The oven is designed to withstand those high temperatures during that self clean cycle. Ventilate the house as much as possible and be prepared for some limited smells and fumes from the oven vent. I hope that this will help you understand that clean cycle and to use it with the peace of mind that it is safe. Let us know if you need more help.

Q:

Why does the temperature vary on my electric range?

A:

It is normal for the oven temperature to cycle above and below the actual set temperature. To accurately check the oven temperature, a technician will allow the oven to preheat and will then allow the element to cycle at least 3 times. The average temperature of readings taken each minute over a 10 minute span would then be used to determine an accurate measurement. A technician also uses a precision thermometer that his extremely accurate and responsive. You may be able to duplicate this process if you have an accurate oven thermometer. Measure the temperature as described above. If the average temperature is accurate then the oven is likely operating properly. If the oven does not maintain a temperature close the setting, then I recommend checking it a couple of more times. If the temperature is consistently off, then you may be able to adjust it using the procedure below. If the average temperature results are widely different, then you may have a problem with the temperature sensor or more likely the oven electronic control board. A bad element in the oven could also produce inconsistent temperatures. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

The surface elements on the cook top will cycle on and off as normal operation. A thermal sensor will shut off the element to prevent the glass top from over heating and being damaged. The element will normally stay on longer on the high heat setting. If no pot or pan is placed on top of the element, it will cycle on and off more often.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
