Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the oven is getting the proper voltage supply (220VAC) and neither bake or broil elements will heat, I suspect the thermal circuit breaker has tripped. The thermal circuit breaker is connected in a series circuit of line two (L2) voltage supply. When it trips, the oven elements will not heat.

The thermal circuit breaker is located behind the cover at the back of the oven. The oven will need to be removed and the back cover to access and reset the thermal limiter. The thermal circuit breaker will have two (2) red wires connected to it. In the center of the thermal circuit breaker will be a red button. Push the red button in to reset the thermal circuit breaker. NOTE: Flip the house circuit breakers off dedicated for the oven before servicing. 

 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.

Thanks. We will give the thermal limiter a try, see if it has tripped. In the meanwhile, I am getting really good at adapting casserole recipes to cook in the crockpot. Tomorrow, I will try pizza on the gas grill using indirect heat.

THANKS! PROBLEM SOLVED! IT WAS the THERMAL CIRCUIT BREAKER on the back of the oven. I remember the last thing I did before the oven malfunctioned was run the auto cleaning cycle. It must have overheated and tripped the breaker. Saved us a repair bill! WhooHoo!

Thermal circuit breaker continues to trip EVERY TIME I run the self-cleaning cycle. Is there anything we can do to prevent this?

Q:

f95 error 79048029801 Kenmore Elite Walloven

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com

I am sorry to hear of the F95 error you have received on the Kenmore Wall Oven, I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

The "F95" fault code indicates a door lock motor failure or door a latch circuit failure. You will not be able to clear the code until the failure is located and repaired. 

A volt/Ohm meter will be needed to test the motor and the micro switch on the door lock assembly to determine which part is at fault. I added a link below with the troubleshooting procedure.

The "EOC" mentioned in the instructions I have linked refers to the clock/oven control assembly. If the lock motor, micro-switch, and the wiring circuit are okay , the electronic oven control (EOC) is likely faulty. Without testing the components, it will be difficult to know which part is at fault.

I would recommend having a Sears Home service technician assist with the troubleshooting. If you would like to set up service, click here to be directed to Sears Home Services.

I wish you all the best with the diagnosis and repair and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
