Question and Answers

Q:

Oven overheats/Cooktop works normal 79096112401 Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

I am sorry to hear of the oven cavity issue you are experiencing on the Kenmore range, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.

Typically when you are having the 'runaway temp' error come up or the oven cavity isn't regulating the temperature properly, it's due to a malfuntioned or defective oven temperature probe sensor. However, with your mention that the bake element doesn't come on at all, that may indicate an issue with the relay in the electronic control board that powers the element. 

In instances such as this, I would recommend having a Sears Home Service Technician come out and help with the diagnosis. In order to identify which part is at fault, you will need to have a multimeter and have extensive knowledge on how to test the electrical circuits on the board.

A:

The door cannot really be adjusted. If this is a new range then the door may eventually start closing the extra 1/8" as the door gasket begins to flatten out. If it is a few years old, then it is likely closing normally. If the door gasket is not damaged, then I don't recommend that you replace any parts (door hinges) at this time. If the situation gets worse, then the door hinges may eventually need to be replaced.

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