A:

If you did not shut off the house circuit breaker to completely disconnect electrical power to try to reset that code, then I recommend that you try that first. Shut off the house circuit breaker for the range and leave it off for 5 minutes. Reset the breaker and see if the control works normally.

The technical explanation for that code is shown in the first image below. You could have a bad EOC (Electronic Oven Control board) or a bad oven temperature sensor probe. A problem with the oven temperature sensor wire harness could also cause that code. That link for a previous answer that Yadira B. posted in the above response shows how to test that oven temperature sensor probe using a volt/ohm meter. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the range and access the oven temperature sensor probe. You should be able to access that sensor from the inside of the oven cavity as shown in the second image below. If you do not see any mounting screws on the inside of the oven cavity then you will need to access that sensor prove from the back of the range as shown in that video in the previous answer provided above. That sensor probe should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that sensor resistance is above 2500 ohms then that sensor will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Elite Range Model 790.46829100 Parts .

If the sensor resistance is okay then you can plug that sensor probe back in and re-install it. I recommend that you access the control board in the console (with the circuit breaker still shut off ). You should be able to access the control by lifting the cooktop and removing the wires cover in back of the console. You can check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit from the control board. That sensor circuit should be connected through violet or white wires at the control board. That sensor circuit resistance should be the same as the resistance that you measured directly at the sensor (around 1100 ohms at room temperature). If that sensor circuit resistance is high then you will need to check that wire harness for the oven temperature sensor probe. The most suspect component in that wire harness is the disconnect plug at the sensor. You may need to eliminate that plug and connect those wires directly together with ceramic wire nuts.

If the sensor circuit resistance at that control board is normal (around 1100 ohms), then you will need to replace that control board.

These tips may help you fix that F1 code problem on your own. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

This can be a difficult range to repair. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Is it normal to have 66vac to the convection heater?

A:


No, it's not normal to have 66vac to the convection heater. I called the manufacturer and he said that it's a bad diode in the neutral side (white wire) of the circuit to the convection heater. He said that it should have 120vac to the convection heater. Replace the diode with this convection element diode kit part# 903084-9010 per the manufacturer. This kit can be ordered at Sears.com.

I recommend making one more voltage check. Check the voltage on the red wire at the convection heater to the white wire at both sides of the diode. It should have a voltage reading of 120vac at one side of the diode. This would confirm the control board is good and it would confirm a bad diode.
