Question and Answers

Q:

My oven won't heat up

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details would suspect a faulty electronic oven control/clock assembly. Before replacing the electronic oven control, make a visual inspection of the bake and broil elements. Disconnect the range from the power source before touching the bake and broil elements in case one of the two has burnt out and shorted. Look for any signs of the element being burnt out and shorted. Look for cracks and blistering on the bake and broil elements. I say this because sometimes when a bake or broil element fails/burns and shorts out, it can cause a short circuit to ground and take out the electronic oven control. If the bake and broil elements appear Okay, replacing the electronic oven control will repair your range. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the control panel.

The electronic oven control #316462878 for Kenmore range model 790.97432801 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Lorenzo: If the surface elements will operate and heat and neither bake or broil element will heat, it could have a tripped thermal circuit breaker on the range. If the circuit breaker(s) are not tripped, it could have a faulty electronic oven control or a burnt L2 out power supply which is common to both bake and broil elements. The thermal circuit breakers are located at the back of the range. The range would have to taken out and the back panel removed to access the thermal circuit breakers. Disconnect the range from the power supply before removing and resetting the two circuit breakers. Each thermal circuit breaker will have a red reset button to push and reset the thermal circuit breaker.
