Q:

How to I disengage the brake?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the saw. To reset the brake you need to remove the cover first. Then use a pair of needle nose pliers on end to grip the part that has the three prongs for the brake. Once in position insert a screwdriver between the jaws of the pliers and turn. If you cannot hold the cover at the same time, you may need a helper. Once you have the brake reset, carefully install it back onto the saw. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

EOC for Kenmore Electric Range

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F1" fault code can appear on any 790 source range and the EOC has not been changed. The fix is to replace the Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

The likely failure condition/cause:

  1. It could have a shorted key pad.
  2. The Control's internal checksum may have become corrupted.
  3. The Control may have sensed a potential runaway oven condition due to a shorted relay or the RTD temperature sensor probe may have gone bad.

I recommend disconnecting and checking the RTD temperature sensor for the correct resistance with an Ohm meter. The oven temperature sensor probe should measure approximately 1100 ohms at room temperature. I added a YouTube video showing how to test the sensor. If the oven temperature sensor measures approximately 1100 ohms then the oven control board is faulty and will need to be replaced.

For the Anonymous writer under Joey's response above: You can check that ribbon cable connection that is shown in that link that V provided in the above responses. A damaged ribbon cable would require that the EOC still needs to be replaced. If you can reseat that ribbon cable, that may fix the problem. You may also need to clean the contacts if you still have problems. The fix described by V in the above responses apparently works in many situations but we don't recommend that you alter the product in that manner. You should be able to access that control by SHUTTIN OFF THE HOUSE CIRCUIT BREAKER for the range then lifting the cook top and removing a wire cover that should be behind that control. If you clean that ribbon connection and reseat it securely on the control board, that may fix your problem. If you still get the F1 code, you will probably need to replace the clock control board. If you need more help, let us know.

For V: Thanks for providing that link that shows additional information about this F1 problem. Apparently that fix works in many situations where the F1 is caused by a connection problem with the ribbon cable. We don't recommend that you alter the control board in that manner through this website. We normally only recommend repairs that recommended by the manufacturer. I understand your concern about the failure that you had with that control board. I do not see a revised control board for that range. Many of the newer Kenmore ranges have the key panel incorporated into the control board and no longer have a ribbon cable connection. I hope that this information helps. I you need more assistance, let us know.

Hello V. I understand your concern about a new control board having the same problem as the original control board. There is only a very small chance that the replacement control board would have that F1 failure. Although your control board failed, it is probably over 10 years old. The actual failure rates on that type of control board are fairly low. The repair blogs and other online comment typically focus on failures and do not provide an accurate reflection of the true dependability of a control board or a range. That control board is expensive. If you replace it, it should normally work properly for another 15 years without having any problems. That being said, there is always a chance that any electronic part can fail at any time. Power surges or glitches through the electrical line during a thunderstorm can cause damage to control boards. Even a new range with the newer type of control board is vulnerable to this threat. In my opinion, the failure that you had with your control board is not an engineering/design failure. There is no widespread common problem with the ribbon cable or the control on that type control board. It is a failure that occurs on occasion and it expensive to fix on the range that you have. I know that it may be tough to hear this but I am just being honest. If you need more help, let us know.

Hello Jason. Smoke from cooking meat will normally not damage the control board on a range. There is not really any way to definitely tell what caused a control board failure. The control board can be damaged by a lightning strike or a power surge through the electrical lines. It can also fail for many other reasons. Sometimes, a relay just has a mechanical failure that causes it to stick. Because the control board has electronic parts, it can fail on its own at any time without any outside factors causing the failure. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
