Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the part for your Kenmore Range. I am so sorry to hear the bottom (bake) element has burnt out. I know what you mean about the spectacular show the element puts on when it is going out. When mine went there was a loud popping noise and when I looked in the oven, the element was on fire. To answer your question, loud noises, bright lights and even a fire are normal when an element goes out. The main thing to keep in mind is to turn off the power to the oven and leave the oven door closed until the fire burns out and the oven has cooled enough to touch the parts inside. If you need directions on how to replace the bake element, please respond to this thread and I will be happy to provide them for you. I have included the link to order the bake element in case you haven't done that yet.

Bake element for Kenmore range model 790.94124407.

Warning: Be sure to disconnect power to the oven if you plan on completing the repair yourself. 

The residue from the burnt element will normally come off with a damp cloth or during a self-clean cycle.

While you are completing your repair, I recommend you also check to see if any other parts need to be replaced. I know over time the drip pans under the surface burners can start looking worn. I have included the links to order them in case you would like to refresh the look of your range.

If you are not comfortable completing this type of repair yourself, you can have a Sears technician complete the repair for you. To set up service please go to www.SearsHomeServices.com or call 1-800-469-4663. I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread.

Thank you, Linda. I'm glad to know that what happened was normal - I've never had an element go out before! Are there written instructions on how to replace it? I got verbal instructions when I went to pick up the new part, but if there are written ones, too, I could use all the help I can get. If not, no problem. I may wait a few days until my neighbor can help me do it.

Thank you for your quick response. I will be happy to help you with this repair.

SAFETY WARNING: Turnithe power off to the range (either unplug it or shut the power off at the breaker).

First open the oven door and remove the oven racks. Next, remove the 1/4 inch hex screws securing the bake element to the rear wall. Slowly pull the bake element out until you see the two wires attached to the male terminals of the bake element. Pull the wires off the male terminals by pulling on the female terminals. Do not pull on the wires themselves. Reverse the process to install the new bake element.

I hope this is helpful. If I can be of further assistance, please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business.

Hi Linda, It turns out the whole electrical panel has to be replaced because when the element blew, it blew the relay switch behind the clock. My question to you: Since the wire from the element to the panel has been disconnected and taped off, can I still use the burners and the broil, all of which still work, until I can afford to have it repaired?

Thank you for writing back with your question about your range. I am so sorry to hear the electrical panel went out too. I understand about having to wait to complete a repair. I am glad you want to operate the oven safely in the meantime. I will be happy to help you with this.

The surface burns function separately from the oven and the broiler and should be safe to use. I recommend NOT using the broiler. It is controlled by the same clock/timer that controls the oven element. Using the broiler before all of the electrial issues have been resolved could cause more serious damage to the range. When dealing with electrical issues, they can also pose a fire and/or injury hazard.

I hope this answers your question. If I can be of any further help, please write back. Thank you again for being a Sears valued customer.

Most likely a bad relay on the Electronic Control, you might want to order the overlay too, since it is glued to the clock...

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptoms and details; the electronic oven control (EOC) has likely failed. Before removing and replacing the electronic oven control; inspect the bake and broil element for any signs of blisters or cracks. If one of the oven elements has shorted and burned out, it can take out the electronic oven control. If both oven elements appear Okay, replacing the oven control/clock assembly should repair your oven. If one of the oven elements appear to have shorted/burned out; replace the element before installing the new oven control board. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the console assembly.

The electronic oven control #316418206 for model 790.94124407 and the clock overlay can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why won't the display on Kenmore range control panel with clock and timer stay lit?-goes off after 5 seconds

A:

It is likely that you have the time of day display turned off. The note below is from page 11 of your owner's manual. It describes this function. You should be able to turn the display back on so that it works normally by pressing and holding the CLOCK icon for 15 deliberate seconds.
