Question about Amana Kitchen Ranges
Our range starting beeping twice. When I tried to use the oven, both bake and convection, it would take the temperature, then beep twice and cancel. The burners on top do work. I unplugged the range to try and reset, but now I can'y even set the clock and the only beep i get is when I touch cancel Any suggestion on what's going on? Thanks, Kevin
the fact that the time keeps flashing is odd, an you set the clock?? and if so does it return to blinking again???sme stoves wont allow proper operation of oven without the clock being set.

I own a similar range. As you can imagine I was dismayed to find out that my $6000 heap can't run a clean cycle, unless of course you just don't want to use your oven again. let me give you a tip something WILL break on your oven every time you use the self cleaning "feature".
The first time I used the self cleaning feature the board burnt up, I asumed hat this was a fluke. The second time the pvertemp sensor burnt out. The next few times that I was brave enough to try it the overtemp sensor triggered this is what I hope has gone wrong with yours since while it's not easy or convenient to fix it is free. If you pull out your range and remove the backsplash and then the rear panel there should be a breaker with a button you can push to reset. On mine it is located near the top of the oven compartment on the left side near the middle. I hope that works for you and you will soon learn as I have after doing this a few times that the self cleaning cycle is just not worth it. It willdo this every time and it really is just easier to use easy off and clean the oven by hand. I realize that is not what you had in mind doing when you bought a luxury Item like a 36" thermador range, but I hope you don't have to hate yours as much as I hate mine.

could be a bad bake element, bad temperature sensor, or control board problem
what does the oven readout display for temperature? if the readout agrees with the actual oven temperature ... it is probably the element
if the oven readout displays a much higher temperature it may be the temperature sensor (the probe in the oven cavity) or the control board
the temperature sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance with power off and unplugged from the control board, should be about 1100 ohms at 75F
If the sensor is good, then it is probably the control board ... in which case we can repair it for you at www.fixyourboard.com

Yes, you can repair the appliance yourself and save on the cost of labor and services charges. Unfortunately, when these triple burners go bad in the manner you describe, there is no way to repair only the portion that is burned out. The burner is one complete piece and needs to be replaced as an entire assembly. The following link explains how:
Replacements parts can be purchased from any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. I suspect your model number is actually 790.96593601 or 790.96593602. These are the only two numbers that cross to the model number you provided. If I'm not correct, please post back with your COMPLETE model number.
The part number for the triple burner is 316216702. Keep in mind, this part, alone is not cheap. The cheapest price I found was about $120 at appliancepartspros.com. However, you would spend much more if you included the added price of a service call and labor charges. Use the part number provided to search any other web sources you like to see if you can find the burner listed elsewhere for a better price. Use the part number as some websites may not list your particlar model, but will carry most parts.
If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
