Question and Answers

Q:

Temperature is way off...new thermostat? 79077483803 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your range is not working properly. 

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT
1. Set EOC to bake at 550°F.
2. Within 5 seconds of setting 550°F, press and hold the bake pad for approximately 15 seconds until a single beep is heard (longer may cause  F11 shorted keypad
alarm).
3. Calibration offset should appear in the display.
4. Use the slew keys to adjust the oven temperature up or down 35°F in 5°F increments.
5. Once the desired (-35° to 35°) offset has been applied, press  STOP/CLEAR.
Note: Changing calibration affects normal Bake mode. The adjustments made will not change the Self-Cleaning cycle temperature.

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your range/oven model 790.77483803; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you with this. Based on the description you have provided it sound like the control was damaged when there was a power surge. The control is very sensitive to electrical surges and shorts. Because there is no electrical function at all I believe your clock /control has damage and will need replacing. Before you replace the clock you should inspect the wiring to and around the control for wire damage and repair as needed. Here is a link to the Timer/clock/control.I hope this helps, if you need additional help reply with more details and I will be happy to respond. 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.Ron H.

Thanks for providing the pictures of the burner. The ports on the burner heads appear to be clean and clear from the pictures that you sent. You can try cleaning those burner heads thoroughly as shown on page 22 of your owner's manual. Here is a link for the owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual . Allow the burner heads to dry completely before replacing them on the range. You can clean the burner caps also. Make sure that the burner heads and caps are positioned properly on the cooktop. A slight misalignment could be causing the uneven flames that you are seeing.

If that does not help, then there is one other issue that a technician will normally check in this situation. The technician would remove the grates, burner caps and burner heads from the burner. He would then insert a 7mm nut driver down on top of the orifice for the burner. This will enable him to check the alignment of the orifice in the orifice holder. That nut driver should stick straight up out of the burner orifice holder. If that nut driver is slanted slightly in one direction, then the technician would apply careful force on the nut driver to tweak the orifice into proper alignment. You may want to have a technician check that alignment. If you are confident that you can check that issue yourself, then you can try it on your own. Use extreme care if you adjust the burner alignment yourself. Slight adjustments should not be dangerous if they are done within reason.

There is not any common known problem or issue with the oven burners on this range. This appears to be a problem that is unique to your particular range. Hopefully you will be able to resolve this problem using the information provided above. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you need to have a service technician examine and adjust the range, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for the suggestions Lyle. We tried cleaning the burner head and cap, but it didn't help. We also tried aligning the orifice and there is no change in the flame. We had a technician out (not from Sears) to work on our dryer and he had looked at the stove earlier. I had him try your suggestion also. He couldn't get it adjusted either. Any other suggestions before I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out? Do you think they will know more than a multi brand technician? Thank you.

A:

In this situation, I don't think that the Sears Technician will be able to make any more progress on that issue than the multi brand technician. Since the burner head and cap is clean and the alignment of the orifice is okay, it is possible that you have a problem with the burner head (part 316223300 for the right front burner). Did the technician that examined the range provide you with any advice or input regarding this problem?

A:

The technician I had out didn't have any advice because it doesn't look like there is anything else to adjust. I was hoping that if I call Sears there may be someone to talk to before I order a part to see if they have an alternative suggestion. If not, I can order the burner head. I'm sure there are instructions on replacing it somewhere.

A:

I am not aware of any other problems that would cause that uneven flame. Replacing the burner head is the only other tactic that I can think of. That burner head just sits on top of the cooktop. Just pull up the grate and remove the cap from the burner head. You should then be able to remove and replace the burner head. Replace the cap and grate. See if that fixes your problem. If you need more help, let us know.
