You would need to replace the clock/timer control (part 316080100) to fix this problem in your range. The part will cost about $180. You can order it from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Replacing the part will be a challenge for this range. Although you can obtain the part fairly easily, actually replacing it in the range may be difficult for you. Here are the basic steps:

  • Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power.
  • The parts diagram of the console is shown in the image below. Remove the push-in buttons (Key 28) from the existing control. The buttons should pull straight out. You can use a needle nose plier to remove the buttons.
  • Remove the upper back panel (Key 1).
  • With the back panel removed, you should be able to access the control board. Take a digital picture of the control board to document the wire connections. Unplug the wires from the original control board.
  • Remove the control board from the console. It appears to have screws on each corner that secures it to the console.
  • Mount the new control board and connect the wires.
  • Reassemble and test the new control.
If you need more help, submit additional details.

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:

How can I open the door on my Kenmore oven?

A:

I apologize for the delay in answering your questions. Here is a copy of the previous answer regarding your range:

The F1 fault code could possibly be indicating several different failures. It could have a control board failure, shorted key pad or bad oven sensor probe.

If the door will not unlock it may have a door lock failure. In order to open the door, the rear panel (key#71) will need to be removed in order to access the door lock motor mechanism. It will have long latch rod (key#88) that links the door lock motor mechanism (key#89) to the door latch (key#18). Once you have removed the rear panel you will see the latch motor and the rod. You can disconnect the rod or the latch motor and then manually push or pull the rod to unlock the door. NOTE: Disconnect the power to the range before removing the rear panel.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.
