Kenmore elite range oven problems

We converted our kenmore elite range to propane a year ago. Recently my oven will not cook above 350 degrees anything higher and the oven just will not work. At first it would work sometimes and then sometimes it wouldn't. please help.

    i will check that thanks. I was wandering if it might be because i am low on propane. But the rest of the stove is working good.

    I have the same problem when I go above 350. But my Kenmore Elite is electric and I think that's the electronic module that resets once in a while for no reason. To go to 450 degrees, I might have to cancel and restart many times. Is there an easy way to replace electronics in the Kenmore elite?

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite 790 hooked up to propane .. is it ok to have it hooked up to propane or is this over for natural gas only?


Kenmore Gas ranges can be used with Natural gas or Lp. They come from the factory set up for Natural gas so if you want to use Lp it needs to be converted by you or your gas company. There are several adjustments that have to be made and some ranges require orifices to be changed. Your installation manual tells how to convert it but if you're not sure about doing it you would be better off the call the gas man.

My Kenmore oven won't work there is a PF 5AB error


The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.

If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.

To ENABLE SABBATH mode:

* Open the oven door
* Press STOP/CLEAR
* Press both the HOUR "UP" and "DOWN" arrow pad at the same time - and hold for 5 seconds.
SAB ON will disappear from the display.

To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.



To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays:
* Press BAKE
* Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F)
* Press COOK TIME
* Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time
* Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional)
* Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds
SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready.
* Press START
* To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR
* To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

Stuck at 288 degrees



NO PARTS REQUIRED!!! DON'T PAY FOR A SERVICE CALL!!!



After a power outage, my wife's grandmother said she could no longer set her over to 300, 400, 450, whatever..



I went over to troubleshoot.



I couldn't figure out why everything seemed functional and why I couldn't set the over to higher than 288 (and thought, that's a rather odd number)... until I realized that that 288 degrees C = 550 degrees F which is the max the oven can do.



The power outage reset the computed back to celcius instead of fahrenheit.



Save them a ton of money... cause this could have been an easy cash grab to some cook out there.

Oven over heats/gas smell


Hi the fact that you smell gas near the floor suggests you do indeed have a gas leak, propane is heavier than air to will fall to the floor.

you really need to get the gas company to check

Kenmore Elite Range/Oven problem.


We had this problem as well, our's locked and we were not able to unlock it.

We found that holding down the stop/clear button on he bottom right of the key pad for 3 consecutive seconds releases the lock.

The locked oven wording will blink for about a minute and then the oven is released completely.

So frustrating...I accidently hit the option while cooking. Talk about panic. I needed to use the oven.

Is it natural gas or propane? They usually come as natural gas. If it is propane has it ever been converted? If not convert it.
