Sorry, but I already said that I'm not in a position to do the repair myself. And I surely wouldn't rely on the instructions in an article from eHow if I did.

That second link that Alina posted in the above response describes some techniques for diagnosing your failure. You would need a volt/ohm meter to check that broil element. You can find an inexpensive meter at your local Sears or store for less than $20. If you are willing to unplug the range and check that broil element, then you may be able to save yourself some money. Here is a video that shows how to test that element using a volt/ohm meter. This video shows how to access and replace that broil element. (Be sure that you have the range unplugged when accessing internal components.)

Those basic tips may help you if you want to reconsider a do-it-yourself repair and you determine that the broil element is bad.

If that broil element is okay, then I recommend that you consider calling Sears and buying a Service Smart Protection Agreement to cover that range failure. That agreement costs around $239.99. It will cover that initial repair for parts and labor up to $500. It will cover any other service calls needed during the next year. The limit for parts and labor on each separate service call is $500. If a service call is over that $500 limit then you can pay the extra amount if the overage is small or you can get a $500 credit from Sears towards a new range. In your situation, that type of agreement probably make good sense to consider. You can call Sears at 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME) to discuss the details of that agreement and purchase it if you choose.

I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Sorry, but the interface for this forum apparently doesn't support carriage returns when you're typing on a Mac, which I am, so everything I enter runs together. I wouldn't even be able to pull the range away from the wall to unplug it, not without a pair of steel-toed shoes and a lead weight tied around my ankles. Any reason not to trip the breaker instead? I don't see this as a procedure I can perform. Does this model display a failure code if the oven electronics malfunction?

A:

Shutting off the house circuit breakers will disconnect electrical power to the range in the same manner as unplugging the range. The failure codes for the clock control board of the oven are shown in the image below. That information may help you understand the nature of your failure if you see one of those codes displayed. The control board can still have a bad relay and not necessarily display a code. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Q:

79096599601 caught on fire

A:

Any sparks or fire coming from a range would be a concern. The expert will review this situation and your model and respond. If you would like to check the age of your range since you are thinking about replacement, you can do that at the second link below. If you would like to go ahead and schedule a technician to visit to diagnose and possibly repair the range an option is the Sears Home Services link below. I would keep the range disconnected. hope this helps.

A:

If the controller (clock) has shorted the part number is 316462850, and the cost is $168.91. This range has 3 more electronic boards on it that are roughly the same price as the clock. We don't know if damage was done to the other boards until you replace the clock.

I recommend you consider replacing the range. I think you should go to Sears.com and shop features and prices.
