Q:

Wall oven working but will not heat up in bake or broil 79047893603 Kenmore Elite Electric oven

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there are problems with the range.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Range model number 79047893603.

These elements could very well go bad at the same time being that the broiler works off the bake element when baking.

TESTING ELECTRIC RANGE ELEMENTS:
 
1.  Unplug th oven from the wall outlet.  
 
2.  Remove the racks from inside when you have the oven door opened.  
 
3.  The elements have a screw on each side and need to remove the screws and pull the wires from the
    elements out.
 
4.  Turn the dial on a multimeter to Rx1k.  Place one lead from the meter on the terminal at the end
    of the element, then place the other lead on the end of the other termial.  The needle on the
    multimeter should register between 19 and 115 ohms.  Replace the element if no reading registers
    on the meter.
 
5.  If the elements are good then take the meter and test both wires that you hook to the bake/broil
    elements.

Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thanks for your assistance, however my bottom element is hidden but I measured the top element and read approx. 15 ohms. Appeared to be good. I checked the voltage from the leads connecting to the broil element and have approx. 49 volts AC. Does this unit have a bottom element, if so how difficult would it be to access to check. Sorry I don't have an schematic to assisst with troubleshooting.

Q:

built in oven not working

A:

When a range displays an error code it can be concerning. I researched your question and found a couple great links that include information on SAB error code. I also included the owner's manual for your model. I attached all links below. I hope these links are informative.

A:

That SA6 (SAb) in the display indicates that the oven is in the Sabbath mode. The 3rd link that Jackie S. posted in the above response is for the owner's manual on your oven. Here is another link for that manual: Owner's Manual . Page 24 in that manual shows how to end the Sabbath mode. Press and hold the COOK TIME and DELAY START buttons for 3 deliberate seconds (or slightly longer). Ending the Sabbath mode on the control should restore the oven control to normal operation. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If the range control will not respond at all and 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 .

I would have never thought of a sabbath observance. Now It has been over 72 hours and the feature has not gone off. When I hold the buttons, they don't seem to be pushing in at all. Could the panel be frozen? Any ideas or suggestions?

A:

The clock control circuit board could be frozen up. You can try to reset that circuit board by shutting off the house circuit breakers for the oven to completely disconnect electrical power. Leave the breakers off for 5 minutes and then reset them. See if you can set the clock and use the control normally. If the oven is still in the Sabbath mode, see if you can exit that mode. If not, then you could have a problem with the control panel and/or the clock control board in that console. Reply with additional details if you need more help.
