A:

All four burners work and are not getting any area codes. The oven simply worked and then it did not.

We have a Kenmore Oven and neither the broiler or baking element works. It seems that it can't be the element. What are the odds of both going out at the same time. The burners work, the light in the oven works, but no heat inside. What could be causing this?

For Richard: The wiring diagram for your Kenmore range model 790.96029400 is shown in the image below. The bake and broil circuits are traced on that diagram. You did not mention whether the broil function on that oven is working. I recommend that you see if that element heats. If the broiler works then the circuit traced in blue and part of the orange circuit back to the control board is okay. You can unplug the range and measure the resistance through that bake circuit from the clock control board using a volt/ohm meter. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to access that clock control board in the console: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just check the resistance through the yellow and orange wires. You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms through that circuit (probably around 25 ohms). If that circuit is okay, then you will probably need to replace that control board (part 316557118). You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the broiler does not work, you could have a wiring failure on that clock control board or a failed relay on that L2 out circuit.

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

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

For Rick: You are correct about the odds of the bake and broil elements both going bad at once. That failure is rare. Depending on your model, you could have a failure in the L2 supply in or out of the control board. Some ranges have a thermal circuit breaker on that L2 supply that would prevent the bake and broil elements from heating. I recommend that you reply with the model number of your range and we will check the technical information for your exact model. We should be able to provide some specific troubleshooting and repair advice for your failure.

Hello Rick. Thanks for replying with that model number. Your range does not have a thermal circuit breaker in that bake or broil circuit. That circuit in your range is the same as the one that is traced in the wiring diagram that I provided above. You could have a wiring failure in that circuit or a bad wiring connection on the clock control board. I recommend that you UNPLUG the range and access that clock control board. Check the red wire connected to the L2 IN spade. Also check the wire on the L2 OUT spade. If those connections are okay, you can check the resistance through the elements using a volt/ohm meter as described above. If you have continuity through those circuits then you will probably need to check voltage going to that control board through the red L2 IN wire. Be sure that you wear proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking that live voltage. If you have voltage going into the control board on that wire then you will need to replace that clock control board (part 316557207). That part costs around $60. You can order it from the Sears PartsDirect.com website (I provided a link for that part below this response). Be sure that you UNPLUG the range before accessing internal components and replacing that part. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

Q:

My Kenmore Electric Range model 790.96029400 had an F7 error code. What does that mean?

A:

The tech sheet for your range only give F1, F3, and F9 fault codes. F1 is for an over temp condition which sounds like what happened to me.

I suspect that when the oven element failed in the range it welded the contacts in the relay on your electronic oven control (EOC) and now the control can't cycle the element as it should.

I believe you will have to replace the clock or EOC to repair the range.
