Question and Answers

Q:

How can I determine why my range keeps rebooting constantly. 79078893900 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your range and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 79078893900 and there is one of two possible failures. It could have a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or a failed Electronic Oven Control (EOC). If pressing Stop/Clear will not stop the beeping then you will need to disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet. NOTE: Leave the range disconnected from the power supply before removing and testing the oven temperature sensor or while replacing the electronic oven control.

In order to diagnose which one has failed, open the oven door and locate the oven temperature sensor probe. It is located in the rear upper left hand corner. It is secured to the rear oven cavity wall with a couple of screws. Remove the two screws and slide the temperature sensor probe out and you will come to a quick disconnect harness plug. Disconnect the harness plug and then check the resistance of the temperature sensor probe using an ohm meter. The sensor should have a resistance measurement of approximately 1091 ohms plus or minus 5.3 ohms at room temperature of 75 degrees plus of minus 2.5 degrees if the sensor probe is okay. If the sensor probe does not have a resistance measurement reading of approximately 1091 ohms, replace the oven temperature sensor probe. If the sensor probe does measure approximately 1091 ohms, replace the electronic oven control (EOC).

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

Thanks for your response. The temperature sensor read 1073 ohms and it is close to 75 deg F out, so I'm assuming that this is the problem.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

In order to access and clean the glass will require removing the door and separating the inner panel from the outer panel. I added an image below with the door removal instructions.

To disassemble the door; remove the two screws securing the door handle and the 4 screws at the bottom of the door. Pay close attention to the order and placement of parts inside the door or you may not get it back together properly. I also added a parts breakdown of the door in an image below.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
