Q:

How to replace the Range Surface Element model 790.9641440A 7909641440A Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

Looking at all the information I’m showing it could be the element itself, or the infinite switch. The infinite switch is located behind the knob that controls the element. I would suggest replacing that switch, normally that is the part that goes out before the element dose.

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

Be sure that you have the range unplugged when checking the continuity through the burner switch using a volt/ohm meter.

I assume that you already have figured out how to access the burner switch from the back of the console. Removing the upper back panel (with the range unplugged ) should give you the access that you need to test the switch.

Make sure that your meter if properly set up to measure resistance.

The wiring diagram for your range is shown in the image below. I highlighted the contacts that you need to check for the left rear surface unit. With the burner in the "on" position, you should measure continuity (around zero ohms of resistance) between the L1 and H1 contacts on the switch. You will also need to check the L2 and H2 contacts in the same manner. If either of these checks measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then the burner switch is bad and will need to be replaced. You can check the other burner switches in a similar manner using the wiring diagram shown below as a guide.

If you need help checking a specific burner, reply with additional details.

If the burner switch is okay, you could have a problem with a relay on the cook top lockout relay control board or the simmer select control board.

I hope that this information helps. As noted above, reply with additional details if you need more assistance.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Q:

Why am I receiving the F10 error code on my Kenmore range model 79096410?

A:

The F10 indicates a runaway temperature in the oven. This is likely caused by the broiler element staying on constantly. Since the broiler element heats constantly, it appears that you have a stuck relay or a failed control board on the range. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this problem.
