Question and Answers

Q:

The two large burners on my stove top get suddenly fully hot on the low setting. 790.9422440A

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Range, Model: 790.9422440A. From reviewing the details on your model,your details seem to indicate that you have a problem with the burner switches for the front burners. Replacing the burner switches will probably fix that problem.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the range to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

this answer sounds very nice but leaves me a bit confused. Sears parts direct doesn't list a burner switch. There is a range surface element control, range surface control switch and several parts labeled simply switch. Would I need to replace all of these for this model?

So here was the answer - The "F1" fault code means the control has sensed a potential runaway oven condition. The control board likely has a shorted relay. I recommend having the oven temperature sensor probe checked for the proper amount of resistance and compared to the RTD scale. The oven temperature sensor probe is located inside the oven cavity protruding from the back wall. It can be removed and tested with an OHM meter. If it tests OK according to the RTD scale then the oven control will need to be replaced. The model number can be located on the frame behind the oven door or behind the broiler/storage drawer. Without a model number I can not provide any part numbers or instructions. Here is my model number - 7909422440a - i need the part numbers and instructions.

Hello Sandy. I see that Lyle has already answered your question on another thread, regarding the instructions and part numbers for repairing the F1 error code that your range is experiencing. I provided a direct link to that thread below.

What does "F1" error code mean?

reprogramming the oven means to reset the unit. To do this, unplug the unit from the outlet or switch off the designated circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes, then restore the power. After plugging the unit back in, set the clock to show the appropriate time of day and start a bake cycle to see if the error code returns.

I really hope this helps you today. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Don't know if anyone will notice this since it's an old conversation but - we were not even using the stove all day and it just started beeping with F1 ? I've thrown the breaker to see if it will reset after about 10 minutes. Model nos. on cover of my manual are 790.46812, 790.46813, 790.46814, 790.46818

Hello Sandy. If that oven temperature sensor probe is bad, then you will need to order part number 316490000. That is replacement part for the oven temperature sensor probe. The above response describes how to test that oven temperature sensor probe using a volt/ohm meter. You can UNPLUG the range and access that oven temperature sensor probe by removing the lower back panel on the back of the range. The first image below shows that oven temperature sensor probe on a similar model of range. You can unplug that sensor and check the resistance of that component. It should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance of that sensor probe is above 2500 ohms, then that is the component that is apparently causing your F1 code or F10 code. If that sensor resistance is okay, then you can plug that sensor back into the harness and check the resistance through the entire oven temperature sensor circuit. That circuit is traced in purple on the second image below. You will need to check that circuit from the electronic oven control board in the console. Remove the upper back panel behind the console as shown in the third image (with the range still UNPLUGGED). The 4th image shows the back of the electronic oven control board on a similar range. Check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit. If the resistance through that entire circuit is normal (around 1100 ohms at rooms temperature) then the electronic oven control board (part 316557118) will need to be replaced. You will also need to replace the overlay (part 316419111) in most sitiuations when replacing that control board. If the resistance through the sensor circuit is high but was okay when measured directly at the sensor probe then you have a failure in that wire harness connection. (Continued below)
