Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com with your question about your Kenmore Electric Oven. I am so sorry to hear the upper oven door will not stay shut. I can understand your concern about getting this fixed. Not only does this situation affect how the oven performs, but using duct tape on an appliance that reaches such high temperatures probably isn't very safe. I will be happy to help you with this.

Normally when the oven door no longer closes completely, the door hinges are worn and need to be replaced. You want to be sure and replace both sides so that they wear evenly. I have included the link to order the hinges. They come individually, so be sure to order two.

Since you will be replacing the door hinges, I recommend you also check the condition of the door gasket itself. If is also worn or coming loose, you should replace it also. I have included that link for you.

I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Why won’t the door stay closed on my Kenmore oven?

A:

On something like this it is recommended to replace the receptacle & the door hinge. You will need to order 2 kits, one for each side, part number 903128-9010. Please see the images provided for replacement instructions.

I have the same model oven and the same problem with the door not staying shut. I tried to access those pictures but they were way too small. I copied the actual image files and they are only 41K apiece, making me think they are only thumbnail pictures. How can I find these images, but at sizes you can enlarge to a reasonable size?

Joseph, thanks for trying to help me, but your response does not address the issue at hand. I have a Kenmore double oven, 790.47773405 and the bake element of the upper oven does not work. I swapped the known working (good) bake element from the lower oven and it still does not work. So obviously it is an electrical issue. Since the resettable thermal safety switch is wired in series with both the broil and bake elements (i.e. it protects both elements), I know that is not the issue since the broil element works fine. Is there another thermal switch I cannot locate? Could someone provide me with a better schematic for my model oven? I am technically proficient, so I would be able to diagnose if I had a better wiring diagram or better troubleshooting info. Keep in mind, per the above, I replaced both the electronic and relay control boards already (previously, neither oven worked and it was not the thermal safety switches so that was when I replaced the control boards and then only bake element of upper oven would not work)

A:

The only wiring diagram that I have for this oven is probably the same one that you already have. It is shown in the image below. I traced that circuit through the bake element of the upper oven in yellow and red. You can shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven to completely disconnect electrical power and check the continuity through that circuit. You should measure between 15 and 30 ohms of resistance through that circuit (the resistance of the bake element). If that circuit is electrically "open" then you have a break in that portion of the circuit that is traced in yellow (since the broil element works). If that circuit has continuity then the relay control board is apparently not applying current to that circuit in the bake mode. There is a possibility that you still have a problem with that relay control board even though it was just replaced. I hope that this additional information helps. That is the most detailed wiring diagram or schematic that I have for this oven. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Thank you Lyle. I hoped not to remove the oven from the wall yet a 2nd time, but your response confirms my suspicions. BTW, why didn't Kenmore put those resettable thermal switches in an easier location to access? (like towards the front of the top of each oven) It kinds of defeats the purpose of having resettable switches when the only way to get to them is pulling out the entire oven to access them on the back..

A:

The locations of those thermal switches are governed by the function and safety aspects rather than accessibility. I understand your frustration about having to pull the oven out to access those components. If they could be located in a more accessible location, I am sure that they would be. That being said, I will forward your input regarding those switches to our product engineer. Your feedback is appreciated.
