Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

When the bake element burnt out and shorted it most likely caused the oven control board to fail. In order to verify if the oven control/clock assembly has failed will require removing the back panel and checking voltage at the bake and broil elements. You will have to leave the bake and broil elements connected and place the voltage meter lead across the two terminals of the bake and broil elements. If you do not measure 220-230 volts, replace the oven control/clock assembly.

I do NOT recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling and scheduling a service appointment to have your range diagnosed and repaired.

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:

Why is the new replacement bake element not working in my Kenmore range?

A:

On something like this you will need to use a volt meter & check the voltage going in & coming out of the EOC, electronic oven control. If you read 240volts across L1 & L2 in & 0 volts out across L2 out & BK with the unit set to bake then we know that the EOC is faulty. If you read 240volts out then I suspect the wiring harness between the EOC & the oven elements. Please see the wiring diagram provided in the image below.

Remember to use extreme caution when working with live voltage & to disconnect power before attempting repairs.

Q:

What does error code F40 mean on a Range model number 790.9642240B?

A:

Core Issue: What does error code F40 mean, on Range model number 790.9642240B?

An error has been detected by the control when F40 flashing. An error code F40, is generated as a result of irregularities in the power supply or usage.

Error codes can often be resolved by removing power to the appliance for a minute and then restoring the power. By unplugging the appliance it allows the control to receive a fresh supply of power. This in turn will clear the controls memory of any irregularities it may have received from the power supply. Once refreshed the error should no longer be displayed.

To clear error code F40 follow instructions below:

  1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
  2. Restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on. #Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.

If the error code is not displayed after unplugging and replugging the appliance, test the appliance to make sure the error has been removed. Note: General information for resolution of problem is based on information that was submitted with question. Please contact a certified technician if problem persist.
