Q:

how to put back,the oven door Kenmore model 7909642440C?

A:

The instructions for removing and replacing that door are shown in the image below. I assume that you have those instructions. It is likely that the hinges has snapped back in or that they were not locked into place before the door was removed. Here is a video that provides a procedure for replacing the oven door in that situation: How To Reinstall Your Oven Door .

Q:

breaker for range

A:

I posted the electrical specifications for this range in the first image below. It will normally need a 40 amp circuit breaker with 8 ga. copper wire size. The local and national electrical codes will need to be followed for the installation of that range. If the current circuit that you have in place is protected by a 40 amp circuit breaker then you should be okay.

For the problem with the element indicator light, I posted a wiring diagram in the second image below with that circuit traced in wire colors. That link for a previous answer that Yadira B. posted in the above response discusses a similar problem in a different model of range. You probably have a stuck contact in one of the infinite burner switches that is causing that indicator light to stay lit. You can use that proven fix that is described in that previous answer to repair this problem in your range. Unplug the range and connect that element indicator light. Remove the purple wire from one of the infinite burner switches and tape the end of that wire with electrical tape so that it does not short out to the metal cabinet. Power the range up briefly and see if the indicator light stays on. If it does, then you can unplug the range and continue with a process of elimination until you find the bad burner switch. You can order the switch that you need from this page: Kenmore Range Model 790.9642440C Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

Why does my Kenmore range flashed F10 and F40 when I try to use the bake and self clean functions?

A:

That F10 error indicates that the oven control board detects a runaway temperature (high temperature out of range and increasing). You can check the resistance of the temperature sensor to see if that component could be causing this failure. Here is a brief video that shows how to test that sensor using a volt/ohm meter: Video: Oven Sensor Testing . Here is a link for a video that shows how to access that temperature sensor in that type of range: Video: Oven Sensor Replacement . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components. That sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is over 1150 at room temperature, then that sensor will need to be replaced. The part number for the sensor is 316490000. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. If the resistance of that sensor is okay, I recommend that you plug the sensor back in and measure the resistance of that entire sensor circuit from the electronic clock control board in the console (with the range still unplugged ). Here is a video that shows how to access the clock control board in the console: Video: Range Clock Control Replacement . The image below provides technical information about the sensor circuit connection on that control board. That information should help you check the temperature sensor probe circuit. If the resistance of through that sensor circuit is normal at room temperature (around 1100 ohms) then the electronic clock control board (part 316557207) will need to be replaced. Be sure that you unplug the range before replacing that component.

The F40 indicates a failure of the cook top lockout control board. That failure could have been caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines that often occurs during a power outage or recovery from that event. That power surge could also have caused your F10 problem noted above. You will probably need to replace the cook top lockout control board (part 316418101) to repair that F40 failure.

If you encounter the same problem after replacing that board and you did not replace the electronic clock control board for the F10 failure, then you will need to replace that control board as well (part 3165572070. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .
