Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore electric stove range. Model 790.93851302, series number VF40913889. I am changing the receptacule where the heating element plug in.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The two ends of the heating element regardless if they have a 360 degree curved end or flat terminals, the ends of the element still should fit between the new receptacle terminals. The receptacle terminal will spread out and make a tight connection when aligned properly with the element. Make sure the ends of the element(s) are not bent in or out or twisted or they may not align up and slide into the new receptacle.

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

Thank you. I finally wedge the ends of the 360 degree element into recepacle after many try and that is after after I use the screw driver to ply the recptacle terminal open wider. If I did not ply the terminals wider, the element would not able to fit in. It was very difficult and hard to insert the elements in after many tries. Is that what you need to do ply open wider the receptacles. Hope I did not broke or damage the rectacle. Thanks. I gave you 5 stars.

Han: It's okay to have to pry the receptical prongs open a little but make sure the element leads fit tight between the prongs.

Thanks for adding that model number. The potential causes of that F1 code in this model of range are shown in the first image below. Based on your details, it is possible that you had a short in the clock control board that is located in the console of the range. I recommend that you unplug the range and access that clock control board as shown in this brief repair video: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just check the back of that circuit board for burned spots or apparent visible damage. Check the wires connected to the control board for burn spots or melted insulation. If you see damage to the control board, it will probably need to be replaced since that is likely what is causing the F1 code. If you want to fix that type of problem yourself, you could order the control board (part 316207511) from the Sears PartsDirect website. Unplug the range and follow the procedure shown in that video to replace that control board. You may also need that overlay for the control board unless you can reuse the original overlay as shown in that repair video.

This information may help you fix this problem on your own without having to replace the range. If you are not confident that you can repair this problem yourself, you can have a service technician fix the range. The labor for a technician would be around $140 (not including parts). Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need to use that option: Sears Home Services . Keep in mind that it may be more economical to replace that range rather than repair it if a service technician is needed.

NOTE: If you see no apparent damage to the clock control board in the console, you could have a bad oven temperature sensor probe that would cause this F1 code. Here is a brief repair video that shows how to check that component using a volt/ohm meter (with the range unplugged ): Oven Sensor Testing . Here is a video that shows how to access that sensor: Oven Sensor Probe Replacement . That sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that sensor is bad, it will need to be replaced.

These tips may help you to fix the range or decide whether to replace it. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you decide to replace the range, you can view current models on the Sears.com website.

NOTE: To stop the beeping on that oven control panel, you could unplug the range and pull off that Black wire connected to the L1 spade on that control board and thoroughly tape the end of that wire with electrical tape to prevent it from shorting to the metal cabinet. That wire is traced in green on the wiring diagram in the second image below. This would remove power from that control board so this it will not continue beeping until you fix (or replace) the range.
