Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the control panel lock up on my Kenmore range model 790.78823407?

A:

I'm not sure what you mean by locks up. If you mean that the oven begins heating and will not turn off or cycle off, then you could have a bad temperature sensor or a stuck relay on the control board.

If you have the technical ability to unplug the range and safely access the electronic oven control board, you can check the resistance of the temperature probe circuit. The first diagram below shows the wiring connection of the temperature probe to the control board. With the range unplugged, remove the back panel and pull the P5 connector from the control board. Using a volt/ohm meter, measure the resistance of the temperature probe circuit. The second image below shows the normal resistance that should be measured through this circuit. At room temperature, you should measure about 11K (11,000) ohms. If you do not measure proper resistance through this circuit, then the temperature probe will need to be replaced.

If the resistance through the temperature probe circuit is okay, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.
