Thank you for contacting Sears Parts Direct with your questions about your oven. I am so sorry to hear it won't shut off. That is very scary and I am glad you knew to turn the oven off at the breaker. When the oven wont shut off, it indicates that a relay has stuck on the control board. Your model has a thermal cutout switch that is supposed to turn the oven off when the temperature gets too hot. I would recommend checking that part also. You model was available in 3 colors. Since I don't know what color your oven is, I have included the electronic controls for all three. I have also included the link for the thermal cutout switch.

Electronic control in Black for model 79046804993.
Electronic control in White for model 79046804993.

While looking over your model I noticed it has the smooth glass surface that requires regular cleaning to prevent staining and pitting of the glass. I have included the link for the cleaning kit in case you need that also.

Smoothtop range cleaning kit.

If I can be of an additional assistance, please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

That part 318050700 is correct for the convection element part. It will substitute to new part number 318255506 in the parts system. Here is a direct link for that part through Sears PartsDirect.com: Element .

This should be a fairly basic repair with a relatively low degree of difficulty. There is not a service manual available for that model of range so that could add to the difficulty of the repair. You can use the parts list diagram and your personal observation of the components in the range as a guide to access that element. Shut off the house circuit breaker for the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Removing the oven door as shown in the image below should help you access the components in the back of that oven cavity. You will probably find screws that secure that fan cover (Key 107) to the back panel of the oven cavity. Remove that fan cover and you should be able to access that element. You should find screws that mount that element to the back wall of the oven cavity. After removing those screws, you can carefully pull that element into the cavity and then remove the wires on the back of that element. Don't let the wires shrink back through the back wall. Connect the wires to the element and mount it then reassemble the range.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

range fault

Dryer fault codes can leave us guessing. I checked the archived expert answers and located one that may help provide answers while you wait for the expert to review this model. I attached the link below. I also added the scheduling link to Sears Home Services if you would like an experienced technician to diagnose and make repairs.

That link for a previous answer that Barbara H. posted in the above response correctly shows what the F1 code indicates on this type of range. Your range is different than the one in that previous answer but the causes of the F1 code are the same. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the range and check the resistance of that oven temperature sensor probe. The procedure for accessing that component is shown in the image below. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to check that sensor: Video: Oven Sensor Testing . The sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If it measures over 1300 ohms, it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect .

If that sensor is okay, then you will probably need to replace the clock control board in the console. I recommend that you have a service technician check the range and replace that component if the sensor is okay. You could have a wiring failure in the circuit that is causing this F1 problem. The console is difficult to access in this range. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .
