The clock control board in the console controls the oven temperature based on the input from the temperature sensor. Your details seem to indicate that the clock control board may be loosing electrical power so that it shuts the oven off completely. We may need more details about what is actually occurring when the oven turns off. If the digital display for the clock control blanks out and then you have to reset that clock, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on that back of that control board. Here is a link for a repair video that shows how access the clock control board: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove the control to check the wiring, just remove that back panel (with the range unplugged ). Check the wiring connections on that back of that control board. The wiring diagram for that range is shown in the image below. That diagram may help you check those wires. If the wires are connected properly, then you may need to replace that clock control board. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing parts. NOTE: Before replacing that part, I recommend that you reply with more details about this failure. You could have other problems that would prevent the oven from heating properly.

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 .

Q:

Oven just shuts off

A:

Oven temperature problems can be upsetting when there is holiday cooking to be done. A suggestion I have to help the expert provide a better answer is to enter the model number of your oven to this thread. If you decide you prefer to have an experienced technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.

A bad oven temperature sensor probe could possibly cause this failure. You can unplug the range and access the temperature sensor probe in the oven using the procedure shown in the image below. Check the resistance of the sensor using a volt/ohm meter. Most sensors should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor measures over 1300 ohms, it may need to be replaced. Before you replace that component, I recommend that you reply with the full model number of your range so that we can check the normal resistance value for the oven temperature sensor probe in your exact model.

A bad control board, or wiring failure or a bad element could also cause this problem. If you have a gas range, a weak igniter could be causing your problem. Reply with the model number of your range and we should be able to provide you with additional troubleshooting advice.

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 .

Hello Mike Berg. I assume that you may be responding to a link for a previous answer that was provided as a response to an original question that you asked. If your range model 790.39641340A is exhibiting the symptoms discussed above, then you could have a bad clock control board (part 316418307) or possibly a bad oven temperature sensor (part 316217001). You can UNPLUG the range and check that sensor probe using the procedure shown in the first link below. The links below have brief repair videos that may help you with this problem. The second link shows how to access that sensor probe (with the range UNPLUGGED). I provided a sensor temperature/resistance chart in the image below. That sensor should measure around 1091 ohms at 75 degrees (room temperature). If that sensor is okay, your likely failure is in the clock control board. The third link shows how to access and replace that part. Before you replace that control board, I recommend that you plug the sensor back in and check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit that connects to the control board through the violet wires (see wiring diagram below). A problem with the sensor wiring harness could possibly be causing this failure. If that circuit is okay, then the clock control board will likely need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect.com website (I added a link on the next response below this one for that website.). Be sure that you UNPLUG the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts. If you don't feel confident that you can repair this failure yourself, you can schedule service using the Sears Home Services link that I provided under the Sears PartsDirect.com link in the response below. If you need more help, reply to this thread with additional details and we will assist you further.
