Thank you for your question on the oven not working.

The warmer is on a different circuit in the range and only runs on 120 volts ac.

You can check the oven temperature sensor for about 1100 ohms at 75 to 80 degrees ambient temperature.

Remove the back panel and locate the connector for the over sensor disconnect the connector and check the resistence as given above.

If the control is not giving an error code of F10 on the display then I would have to say that it is not the oven sensor but rather the electronic oven control is the problem.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

The voltage in and out of the electronic range control will have to be checked to make sure.


It sounds like you have a volt/ohm multi-meter and if you feel comfortable checking live voltage at the control we can check for 240 volts at L1 in P3 on the board and L2 in P5 on the control.

If you have 240 volts across those two points then with the oven set to bake for 240 volts check from L1 in P3 to L2 out P1 for 240 volts and bake BK P9 to L1 P3. Look at the diagram in the image below for the back of the electronic control and the bake and broil element circuit.

If with those voltage check combinations you only get 120 volts the relay in the electronic control is not completing the circuits to the elements.

If you find that the control is bad the part number is: 316462804.

Electronic controller .

Please let me know what you find out.

Sam, Thanks. I did check the temp sensor and that is ok. For the heck of it I checked both heating elements and they are ok. I'll check the "electronic oven control" tonight. You do not think it is the door switch? I was going to check that next. I was hoping for a less expensive part. Thank you for the help, this is a graet service. At a time most companies are cutting service this is a great site. Does Seras sponser this site?

Sam, I checked the voltages and get actually 250VAC across the points you asked me to check. I had the oven and broiler on as you indidcated I should do. The oven got a little warm. By warm I could still touch the inside of the oven the surfaces were ever so warm. Could it be the oven door switch? Having a hard time getting to it.

Hello Sam, I have a Kenmore oven 790.9445. My oven also will not heat up, stove top works fine. I checked voltages like you suggested also checked continuity on the elements and ohmed out the sensor @1100. Since everything seems right whats the next step? Thanks for all your help. Eric
