Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore over replacement probe 790.96129403

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
It does look like the oven probe has changed from part number 316217001 to 316490001. You will have to cut the connector from the new probe and the old probe and put the old probe's connector onto the new one so that it will connect to the existing wire harness connector. This would involve cutting and splicing wires together to make it work. 
If you don't have experience splicing wires, I would recommend having a Sears technician help assist with this type of repair. There would be safety issues if the wires weren't spliced or connected properly.
If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.
Hope this clarifies it and helps, and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

no power is getting to the door lock motor on my Kenmore Electric oven.

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorrry about the problem with your Kenmore 790.96129403 Free Standing Electric Range.  The wiring diagram in the image below would tend to agree with if there is no voltage then the Clock/Timer Electronic Control is likely at fault but beware of broken wires and bad connections at the connector.  Electronic parts are easy to buy but difficult to return if not needed so check twice before spending $130 dollars.  I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.  You can also have the range repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Range Repair.

Thank you for your question on why the bake and broil do not work on your range.

Since you have already checked the elements for continuity and this range does not have a thermal overload in the oven circuit we will have to check the electronic range control for power in and out.

If you are comfortable with doing a voltage check on the control you can remove the upper back panel and check the voltage and the control.

First remove power to the range.

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.

PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN DOING ANY LIVE VOLTAGE CHECKS WITH YOUR METER.

Make sure you set the meter to a high enough ac voltage scale to check these contacts.

Then pull the range out and remove the upper back panel and then locate the L1 and L2 on the control and the L2 out to the elements.

I have given you a diagram below to help with the locations to place the meter probes.

You can check for voltage into the control with you meter on L1 and L2 for 240 volts ac

Program the control for bake and check the L2 out and Bk to see if you have 240 volts ac at that point. If you do not then the control is bad.

To check the broil, program the control for broil and check between L2 out and BR on the control.

If you have voltage into the board but not voltage coming out the control is bad and will need to be replaced.

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 .

Please let me know what you find out.
