Question and Answers

Q:

What is the resistance reading on the bake and the broil elements and the specifics on the live wire check for the bake and broil wiring?

A:

I can understand your concern over wanting to know the resistance for the bake and broil elements on your electric range. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

A:

Those elements should measure between 10 and 20 ohms of resistance. Based on the wattage ratings, the bake element should measure close to 16.5 ohms of resistance. The broil element should measure around 14.5 ohms of resistance. A few ohms above or below those readings would be normal.

I recommend that you check the bake and broil element circuits from the electronic control board in the console. Unplug the range and access the back of that control board. Remove the back panel of the console to access that control board. The first image below shows a wiring diagram with the circuits through the bake and broil elements traced in wire colors. The second image show a drawing of the control board with the wire connections marked. You can measure the resistance of the bake element through the yellow and orange wires. Measure the resistance through the broil element through the blue and orange wires. You can also check for a short to the metal cabinet ground of the range by measuring the resistance between each of those wires and the bare metal cabinet beside the control board. You should measure infinite resistance or Ol -- open load during that test for each of the wires (yellow, blue and orange to cabinet ground). If those circuits are okay, then you should have no further problems with the range after replacing that control board.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

My model no 790.94429300 is kenmore stove. both elements in oven no longer work following a loud pop sound coming from stove. I need to find out if this event relates specfically to the failure of a specfic part and what that part no would be . I did join an earlier conversation where the tech was talking about replacing the ' Contrl Board " Part no 316207511. When I looked up the part number it was identfied as a CLOCK not CONTROL BOARD ? I am not sure if that is my problem and would like to get a tech to give me help to pin down my problem. I know that electric component parts cannot be returned if they are installed in appliance.

Thanks for your question about the range model 790.94429300, I will be glad to assist with this issue.
I have attached an image of the wiring diagram of your model so you can check the circuits and determine the problem. always disconnect power supply from appliance before servicing, or accessing components and when testing live voltage wear proper safety equipment and use caution using a volt meter check the line voltage to the Control board L1 and L2 in. it should read 240 volts. If you have power, then set oven to bake and check BK and L2 out there should be 240 volts. And with control set to broil check L2 to BRL also should get 240 volts. If you get no voltage or low reading the control is damaged. If you get good readings check wiring to elements. I researched and the part number your received is the control/clock for your model , there is an overlay as well that may have been damaged when the pop occurred.( if you determine the control is bad) Yes many parts are not returnable so I will add a link to service for your convenience. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

I hope this better helps with your finding the cause of the problem, if you need additional help reply with details.

Thanks Ron H.

The wiring diagram for this range is shown in the image below. A wiring failure or a failed electronic oven control board are the likely causes of this oven heating problem. I assume that the stove top burners are still heating. I recommend that you unplug the range and access the wiring connections on the back of the control board in the console. Remove the upper back panel to access this area.

NOTE: The internal metal edges on the range can be sharp (including the sides of the back panel). Protective gloves are recommended.

Check the red wire connected to the L2 IN spade on the control board to make sure it is properly secured. Also check the orange L2 OUT wire. If these connections are secure, I recommend that you check the resistance through the blue and orange wires. Also check the resistance through the yellow and orange wires. You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms of resistance through these circuits. If these circuits are okay then you will likely need to replace the electronic oven control board. This is a risk without having a service technician conduct some live voltage checks. If you want to take that chance and fix the range yourself, you can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the control board is 316207511. You may also need the overlay unless you can reuse the original one. The part number for the overlay is 316220841. You do not need special equipment to install the control board. Document the locations of the wires on the original board (take a digital picture if necessary). Remove the wires and then remove the screws that secure the control board in the console. Install the new control board and reassemble the range.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
