Question and Answers


model no 790-78853606 gas range oven panel not working


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on you symptom and details the oven control board has likely failed. The proper way of diagnosing and confirming if the oven control has failed is to check and confirm the voltage supply at the J3 connector on the electronic oven control. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

The voltage supply is tested across the Black and White wires on J3 connector. J3 connector will have a White wire at one end and a empty space and then the Black wire plus some other wires. If 120 volts is present across the black and white wire and the oven control will not display any LED's or letters, replace the electronic oven control/clock. The part number of the electronic oven control/clock is #316462803 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect .

The control can be removed and replaced from the rear of the range. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from the back of the console assembly.

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 .
