Question about Ovens
I have only had this oven for 2 months and on 4 different occasions it suddenly starts to beep and the oven turns itself to 350 degrees and Convect Roast or Convect Bake displays. No one has touched it and no one has preset it to turn on by itself!! I checked inside and do not see a ghost in it either, so would could be the problem? I have not called Sears yet, but it worries me to think that it might turn on while no one is at home. Any ideas? It's a Kenmore Elite 790.4670 Thank you
You may have already called service and that is a good Idea since this could be a fire hazard if something was left in the oven when it comes on.
First I would check all the key lights on the oven controls to ensure that they do light. We have the same stove and several times we have brushed the top panel and turned things on accidentally. Ensure that the audible alarm is on/working - it helps.
The next strategy has to do with all the myraid of oven control modes if there is a defalult - reset to it . Otherwise cancel all timing or alternative mode methods for controlling the oven.
Has there been power outages or power surges correlating to these turn on phenomena? A surge protector if such a thing exists may be needed and static electricity may play in this as well - good luck.
