Question and Answers

Q:

Oven won't heat broil or bake after performing a self-cleaning process. It is a Kenmore Elite built-in oven, model# 790.48033801.

A:

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom links for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to use the oven after self-clean and it will not work.

You are correct there is a thermal circuit reset on the oven.

The problem is you will have to remove the oven from its location to get to and or reset the red button.

First REMOVE POWER to the wall oven.

It is located behind the back panel on the oven back wall.

You will have to locate the screws that secure the wall oven to the cabinet and remove.

Then you will need some type of support for under the oven to side it out on and then locate and remove the back panel on the wall oven.

Locate the red button and push in to reset.

I have sent you a picture of the thermal reset courtesy of Repair Clinic .com.

I would suggest to removing the thermal reset and install a couple of thin washers under the mounting ears between the thermal reset and the back wall of the oven and re-install. This should keep it from doing that again the next time you self-clean the oven.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I had the same problem with the same oven. Checked the thermal reset. It didn't trip. Tested thermal reset - 0.1 ohms resistance. Seems OK. Checked heating element - 15 ohms. Seems OK any ideas

Thank you for your question with the wall oven with the same problem. Since you have a meter then you will need to check the connections of L1 in on P5 on the control board to L2 in on the control board and then turn the oven to bake to see if you have voltage on L2 out on the control board for the 240 volts for the elements. I you have the 240 volts across L1 (p5) to L2 in to the board then the control board will need to be replaced because the bake relay is not working. Sam A.

I am having problems with this model oven. I wasn't trying to use the self cleaning feature though. We were actually using the oven, when about halfway through the baking time, the heat turned off. I have pulled the oven out and tried to reset the thermal circuit, but it was not tripped. I had someone come out and look at it and they told me everything (relays, heating elements, etc.) tested good and that the problem must be my control board. I ordered and replaced the control board, but the oven still will not heat. Any ideas?

Q:

how do i re-insert a screw that fell off 79048033801 Kenmore Elite Walloven

A:

The screw most likely went into a nut that is built into the 318280452 console which is a $200 dollar part.  There are three screws that hold the trim piece part key 18a so if one screw is missing the console should be okay.  To get access to the back side of the console to see what the screw goes into would require pulling the oven out of the wall and removing the top cover.   Is the trim hanging down?  There may be other options to hold the screw and trim in place. I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Q:

I have a kenmore elite oven (790.48033801) that is 3 wks past the 1 year purchase date. Today it was put through the self-cleaning clcle. Now it will not work.

A:

The self clean is intended to keep the oven clean and ready for use. I can understand the confusion if now the oven does not work. I found a similar question from a previous post that may answer your question. Bear in mind the model number is a bit different so the expert will still be reviewing your model. I attached the link below along with the link for service if it is needed.

These ovens have a high-limit thermostat on the back of the oven that can trip if it gets too hot. The one on yours has a reset button. To access this part & reset it you would have to pull the oven completely out of the wall. This would require 2 strong people. Then disconnect the power to the oven by shutting off the circuit breaker. Remove the back panel of the oven. There you will find the thermostat with a little red button in the center of it. Push it, you should feel a little click when it resets. Now you can cook thanksgiving dinner! I would not recommend self cleaning it again until you have it checked out by a service tech to find out why the thermostat tripped.
