Q:

oven overheating 79094222409 Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct.
Upon researching model 790.94222409 I found that these units produce an error code. If it gives an error code for you we can use that. There might be a service data sheet on back of unit that informs what codes are. If no code I can inform you there is an oven sensor probe that reads the temperature then signals to the control board whether to raise or lower heat. If you unplug the range for a couple minutes then plug in and if it starts to overheat by itself then it could be the electronic control board.
I linked diagram for control board and sensor.

Click here for diagram of control board.  Number 20 in diagram. If replaced the overlay will also need to be replaced.

Click here for diagram of sensor. Number 37 on diagram.

I hope this helps you. If you have any further questions please comment back. Have a great day.

Q:

dual element contro

A:

New appliances come with so many features it can be difficult to understand all of them. I have posted the manual to your appliance below. I hope this helps! http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/2949/KENMORE-Free-Standing-Electric-L0408369?brand_name_search=790.94222409+

I understand your concern. I must assume you provided the incorrect model number. The model number you provided has conventional Calrod surface elements. Dual elements are radiant elements used with smooth top ranges and cook tops.

I added an image below with instructions and information on how to use the dual elements.

I verified the Model Number on the Range and have the right User Manual. Even went to Sears and (1) verified I have the manual for my range model and (2) used their Chat system to verify this. This manual does not have anything about a dual control on right side. However, the far right turn knob shows dual controls - the right half for the front small element and the left half for dual elements (includes front & back large element). I have played around with this dual turn knob and yes it works the single front and dual both right elements (one large - back and one small - front). However, neither element works well! Sears does not even know my range model has dual control elements on right, how they work, nor why they do not work well. Thanks Sears! :-(

Q:

Code on Kenmore stove.

A:

I have found two links provided by experts for people who were also experiencing an f10 error code for the model 790. I attached the links below. I hope this of some assistance!

A:

The F10 error code does indicate that the electronic oven control detects a runaway temperature (high and increasing temperature). If this error code is appearing when the oven is at room temperature or obviously not overheating, then you likely have a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe. You can check that component by unplugging the range and accessing that sensor using the procedure shown in the image below. If you do not see mounting screws on the inside of your oven cavity for the sensor probe, then you will need to remove the back panel (with the range still unplugged ) to access the wire harness disconnect for the temperature sensor. This component will have violet wires going to it. Measure the resistance through this sensor using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If you measure over 2500 ohms at room temperature, then the temperature probe (part 316217001) will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the resistance of this probe is normal, then I recommend that you plug the sensor back in and check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit from the electronic oven control board. With the range still unplugged , remove the upper back panel to access the control board. Unplug the connector with violet wires and measure the resistance through the two violet wires. If you measure normal resistance (1100 ohms) through the sensor circuit then the control board (part 316557108) will need to be replaced. If the resistance is much higher than 1100 ohms, then the wire harness will need to be checked. You can try replacing the disconnect plug with ceramic wire nuts. The wire harness disconnect on the probe may be causing the high resistance.

These tips will likely help you fix this problem if you want to repair the range yourself. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .

Just FYI my oven only does this when in use. When you are pre-heating the oven, well trying to it will start beeping and flashing F10. Would it still most likely be the EOC? I am not using the top of the stove (burners) at all just trying to pre-heat the oven. Thanks this is very helpful to me.

A:

A runaway temperature is considered to be over 550 degrees. If the oven is no where close to that temperature (not even up to 350) when the F10 occurs, then you could still have a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe or you could have a bad EOC. The EOC senses the temperature by measuring the resistance through the oven temperature sensor probe. The resistance/temperature scale is shown in the image below. If the resistance of the probe is over 2000 ohms when the oven is only heated up to less than 400 degrees then the sensor probe will need to be replaced. If you heat up the probe with a heat gun (hair dryer) and the resistance increases according to the chart shown below then your likely failure is in the EOC. If the resistance of the sensor is high, then the sensor probe will need to be replaced. I hope that this information helps. Reply with additional details if you need more assistance.
