Question and Answers


A power surge blew out my electronic control board. Is it possible that more damage could have occured beyond the control board? 79078952501 Kenmore Gas range


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the shorted relay on the control board from the power surge. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

It is unlikely there will be any further damage outside of the board, but it will be impossible to say for sure without a thorough inspection of the board and wiring. Typically the surge will just take out a relay on the board, making it inoperable. A visual inspection while unplugged will typically show you if there is further damage. I would suspect that a replacement board will solve the issue.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or
