Question and Answers


F1 code 79095682301 Kenmore Electric range


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your range. Upon researching model79095682301; The "F1" fault code indicates one of the following possible failures:

Shorted keypad which is part of the Electronic Oven Control (EOC)

Failed Electronic Oven Control (EOC)

Oven temperature sensor is bad (this is located inside the oven cavity at the upper left rear corner). The oven sensor should be disconnected and tested for resistance and compared with the "RTD" scale.

You can try resetting the range by disconnecting it from the outlet or switching off the circuit breaker of the home for 10-20 minutes then restore the power. If the reset doesn't work your range may have one of the above failures. Also the overlay with the buttons is a separate part from the control board it is placed on by adhesive, so
you may have to order the overlay if the one you currently have becomes damaged removing it.

If you have any further questions please re-post. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Thank you for your question.

I can certainly understand wanting to fix the range yourself to keep the cost down.

It sounds like the electronic oven control has taken and electrical surge from what ever caused the house main breaker to trip.

I would suggest replacing the oven control.

There is a small possibility that the oven sensor is bad but since this happen under these circumstances I think the control is the problem.

The part number for the control is: 316557511 and you can purchase it from:Sears Parts Direct .

  • To replace this control you will first need to REMOVE POWER to the range.

  • Pull the range out away from the wall and remove the top back cover of the range.

  • Locate the clock control and remove the 4 screws that secure the control to the control panel.

  • Before removing any wires and connectors from the old control have the new control in hand and replace wire for wire and connector for connector one at time.

  • To install the new control make sure you have the touch pad centered over the control when you install it back into the range control panel.

  • Install the 4 screws back onto the control to the control panel and replace the back panel.

  • Restore power to the range and set the clock for the time of day and test operation.

I hope these instructions will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

What does F3 mean on a Kenmore electric range model number 790.95682301?


The F3 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses an "open" or "short" oven temperature sensor probe circuit. This can be caused by a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring failure or a defective electronic control board. I recommend unplugging the range and checking the resistance through the sensor circuit. The temperature probe is connected to the electronic oven control board through the violet wires on pins 12 and 13 of the P5 plug as shown in the first image below. Unplug this connector (with the range unplugged) and measure the resistance through the violet wires with a volt/ohm meter. The normal resistance of this circuit is shown in the second image below. The circuit should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. It will likely measure near zero ohms (short) or infinite resistance (open). If it measures the normal resistance, the electronic board will need to be replaced. If the circuit measures open or short, the resistance will need to be checked directly at the temperature sensor probe. If the probe is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the probe is okay, then the wiring harness will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check these components, I recommend calling a service technician to repair the range.
