Question and Answers

Q:

over heating 79046709603 Kenmore Elite Electric range

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the range.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Range model number 79046709603.

This oven doesn't have a thermostat but does have an oven sensor that regulates the heat like a thermostat does.   I have it on the link below.   You can put a meter to the sensor and check for its continuity and verfiy weather it is good or not.   If both upper and lower elements are working and just not getting to the correct temperature setting and keeping it there then the sensor would be the place to start.   

Oven temperature sensor for the model 
79046709603.

Directions to check the oven sensor:

1.  Unplug the oven, don't want to take the chance of getting an electrical shock.

2.  Use a multimeter to test the oven snesor's voltage.  The oven sensor must read 1100 ohms at room temperature and 1650 ohms at a temperature of 350 degrees.  If the multimeter reads that it doesn't meet these specifications then the oven sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.

How to Test

1.  After unplugging the oven, remove the access panel. You'll see the oven sensor is connected to the oven using four wires. Two wires are labeled "L1" and "L2," while the other two are labeled "H1" and "H2." Disconnect the wires, making sure to notice where each connects to the sensor. Attach the leads of the multimeter to "L1" and "H1," and turn on the oven to take a reading. Turn the thermostat to 350 degrees and take another reading. Disconnect the multimeter and test "L2" and "H2" to make sure you are getting the same readings. Then disconnect the multimeter and reconnect the oven sensor. Put the access panel back and plug in the oven.

External Symptoms

1.  Your oven sensor might be bad if you notice your oven is taking a long time to heat or is not heating at all. Depending on the model you are using, you could also get an error code such as "F1," "F2" or "F3." If you get any of these three error codes, it usually means the oven sensor is bad and causing the oven to overheat or not heat properly.

Q:

I just started the self-cleaning 3-hr. cycle about an hour ago. It is now "beeping" and giving an error message "F30" What does that mean and what do ai do to

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 The F30 fault code will display if the oven temperature sensor probe is open or faulty. The oven temperature sensor probe is located inside the oven cavity and is mounted in the upper left rear corner or it could be located in the upper right rear corner. The oven temperature sensor can be removed and disconnected from inside the oven cavity. The oven sensor can be tested with an Ohm meter for proper Ohm resistance. At room temperature, the oven sensor should measure approximately 1100 Ohms of resistance.

If the sensor does Ohm approximately 1100 Ohms, the wiring connections between the oven sensor and the electronic oven control should be checked. If the connections are Okay, then it may need a new electronic oven control board.

The oven temperature sensor part # 316217002 for Kenmore range model 790.46709603 can be ordered from Searpartsdirect.com

I can understand how important it is to have the right parts for your range. However, the information that we available to us does not included which wiring harness goes where. I would able to narrow it down, but I can not be certain which one you need. I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer on this. They would have the information for these parts. The model was manufacturer my Frigidaire. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
