Stove about 4 years old started blowing fuse in house main box. Replaced fuses worked 24 hours now it blew again stove was not in use at the time. When it blew 2nd time the fuses were extremly hot.


This indicates that one of the heating elements or control has developed a problem. Can you provide the make and model for this range?? Replace the fuses if blown. Check to see if any element is hot - including those inside the stove. Note any that are. Shut off the stove and unplug it from the outlet. When cold, perform a careful visual inspection of the heating elements on the cooktop AND both the bake and broil elements inside the oven (especially any that were found to be hot earlier). Run your fingers along the blind side of the elements to detect any openings, blobs, etc. in the metal covering of the element. Replace any damaged elements with new. Start the process over again - especially the new element. If found hot - check the control - is it on? The control may need replacement, too. This may require more skills / tools than you have and need a pro. Good luck!

Loud pop and light behind stove. Stove top works, oven does not.


Good Morning Stephanie - Typically you may locate the model and serial number in the storage drawer, on the right side. Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or a faulty bake and/or broiler element. If resetting the unit did not solved the issue, at this point I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the range to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

My Kenmore #79047153401 baking function is not working yet the broiler is functional as well as the warming drawer.


i looked up your model number and it comes up as a duel fuel,gas on top and electric in the stove,i would first unplug it and read out the bake element,check it for continuity,you have to pull off at least one of the wires,set the meter to say 20k,touch the leads together and make sure your meter reads it,then touch the meter leads to both sides of the element,if it stays on 1 the element is bad,if you get any other reading other than 1 then the element is good.if it's good now you have to check to see if you're getting 240 volts to the element,this will be easier if you pull out the stove and remove the back panel and you can check it this way because you have to do this with power going to the stove,if you are getting 240 volts to the element you could have a broken wire or a bad board but most likely it will be the element.also if i'm wrong and this has an ignitor check that out with a meter but like i say this comes up with electric in the stove and gas on top.the bake element part number is 318255401 and it's around 95 dollars,this is on the sears site,hope this helps,http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79047153401/0583/0122008/R0309147/00003?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79047153401 copy and paste for the sears parts site.

I hit 350 and start on my range and sparks flew out of both sides and now the oven does not work. The stove works but not the oven. can you tell me how to fix this.


It sounds as if the bake element has failed. They cost around 8 to 20 dollars. You will need to unplug the stove first. (Shutting off the stove breaker is good to do before unplugging the stove as an added precaution). On the back of the stove there is a metal
cover with a couple of 1/4 inch hex screws. remove this cover and unplug the bake
element. Then remove the two hex screws inside the oven and slide out the bake element. The model number is located below the oven door behind the drawer to
purchase a replacement. Hope this helps.

While baking my wife noticed sparks coming out of the baking element or coil. can we continue to use the stove top or should we leave it unplugged.also how much does it cost to replace the element


It sounds like the element shorted out and needs replacement. I would not continue to use the oven, although it should be ok to use the stove.

It's difficult to say what a new element plus installation will be, but you can call around and get estimates. Have the model number, type and serial number available if possible before you call.

Bake element doesnt work everything else does


Control unit is probably the problem, You should check your Breaker to make sure it didnt trip outside of that you can check voltage to the element with the oven set to bake, if you dont have votage to element then it would most likely be the board. I just checked the wiring diagram for this unit and there is an over limit switch which is a long shot but worth checking. My bet is on the board. There are 2 listings for the part number so if you check on parts make sure you have full model # serial # AND series #(should be a 2 digit number like 10 or something)
