That first link for a previous answer that Priscilla V. posted in the above response should help you resolve this oven heating problem. Your diagnosis of the problem should follow a similar path to the one described in that answer. I posted a wiring diagram for your model of range in the image below. That bake element is traced in orange and yellow (the wire colors that you should find). I recommend that you unplug the range and access the back of that clock control board as shown in this brief repair video: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just access the wires on that back of that component. You can check the resistance through that bake element circuit through the orange and yellow wires. You should measure between 10 and 30 ohms of resistance. If you do, then this indicates that the bake element circuit should be good. You will probably need to replace that clock control board in that situation. A technician would normally measure the voltage going out of that control board to the bake element before replacing that control board. You should not check that live voltage yourself unless you are completely confident that you can safely measure it. If you do check it then I recommend that wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking that live voltage. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed . You should measure 240 volts going to that bake element through the yellow and orange wires when the oven is set in the bake mode. If that voltage is missing, then that control board will need to be replaced. You can order that control board through this page: Clock Control Board for Kenmore Range 790.96549602 . You may also need the overlay unless you can reuse the original one as shown in that repair video. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

If that circuit through the bake element is electrically "open" (measure Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then that bake element may need to be replaced. You can check that bake element as shown in this video: Bake and Broil Element Testing . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing that bake element. Here is link for a video that shows how to access that bake element: Bake Element Replacement . NOTE: Your range has a hidden bake element. You will need to remove the bottom panel inside the oven cavity to access that element. Remove the thumb screws at the back of that panel. Pull the back of that panel slightly up and back to release the front lip. You should then be able to remove that panel from the oven. If that element is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the element is okay, then I recommend that you check the wiring between the element and the control board. Be sure that the range is unplugged when accessing internal components.

These tips should help you fix this oven heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

A:

I did not see a feature listed that will make the time of day disappear. On similar models, you can hold down the CLOCK icon for 15 deliberate seconds to make the time of day appear or disappear. You can try using holding the CLOCK icon down to turn off the time of day display. If that does not work, your oven doesn't have this feature.

Thanks, I unplugged the whole oven and now it is locking the door from a previous attempt I made. I pushed stop/clear but it won't stop the lock process.

A:

well, now the LOC button continues to stay on along with the door locked flashing. We tried unplugging it overnight and that made it worse. Now it beeps every 10 minutes or so and makes this series of clicking noises. I also have error F 11 now. What can I do

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F93" fault code is related to the door locking mechanism. The "F11" indicates a stuck key pad. You may have caused the F11 if your pressing and holding the buttons too long. You may need an Electronic Oven Control board if the F11 will not clear. Unplug the range for longer than 30 seconds and the reconnect power and if the F11 fault returns then it will need a new ERC (electronic range control). Both faults could be caused by a faulty ERC.

The "F93" fault code is usually generated when the oven door attempted to lock and it exceeded the maximum door lock time. If the door is actually locking and unlocking then the failure is likely the lock motor micro switch mounted on the door locking mechanism located at the back of the range. NOTE: Disconnect the range from the power source before removing the rear panel and testing the micro switch. The switch must be able to make and break the contact when energized and released. The switch must be disconnected and tested with an ohm meter.

  1. Check the wiring between EOC (Electronic Oven Control) & Lock Motor Micro Switch.
  2. Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.
  3. Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.
  4. Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.
  5. Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.
  6. Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.
  7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.

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 .
