Question and Answers

Q:

oven element will not heat

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The oven elements must have 220 volts supplied to it or it will not heat. You will need to check the voltage across both terminals of the heating element when the oven is set to bake. If it does not measure 220, the electronic oven control has most likely failed. When an oven element burns out and shorts, it can cause the oven control/clock assembly to fail.

The electronic oven control/clock assembly for Kenmore electric range model 790.96009604 is part #316557108 which can be ordered from Searspartsdirect. There is also an overlay over the face of the oven control/clock assembly which will likely have to be ordered as well. The old clock overlay part #316419109 will not likely adhere to the new oven controlled once it has been peeled off.

The oven control can be accessed and replaced from the back of the range. Disconnect the range from the power source before removing the cover from behind the control panel. 

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

I replaced the burnt out Bake element, why won't heat?

A:

The likely failure is the Electronic Oven Control (EOC). The oven control must close the bake relay in order for bake element to heat. When the original bake element burnt out it likely caused the bake relay to fail. Since you did not include the complete model number of your range I added a typical wiring diagram of your range. You will see that there is bake relay that must close in order for Line One (L1) voltage supply to feed one side of bake element. The Bake element needs both Line One (L1) and Line Two (L2) voltage to heat. The bake element must have 220-240 volts supplied to it in order to heat. If the broil element works, that would likely confirm L2 voltage in and out of the control board and the bake element is likely not getting the L1 voltage supply due to a failed EOC or burnt wire connection.

A:

What about the relay? Can that be the source of no L1 voltage to the element independent of the control? Can the relay be replaced without replacing the control?

A:

The model number of our oven is 79096009604. It is a Kenmore. We have replaced the element and it is not heating. Would you be able to send a larger picture of how to go about resetting the EOC?? Drawing above is too small to see the details. Thank you.

Thank you for your question about the age of your Kenmore electric range model 790.96009604. I am sorry to hear you are having a rust problem. I will be happy to answer your questions.

This model was first introduced into the market in 2006. I cannot tell when yours was sold in Hawaii. There have been no reported issues of rusting on this product due to design or manufacturing processes. The area you speak of are made of metal and metal can rust under certain conditions high humidity is the most common and the amount of salt in the air contributes as well. If the parts described have wear of the paint they will rust faster also. I have checked your model and find parts to be available at Sears Parts Direct web site. I have attached the link if you wish to price the needed parts. Sears PartsDirect

I hope this information helps you with the issue.

Thanks Ron H.
