Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven

6 Answers

Kenmore cooktop/oven model # 790

The digital controls are not working correctly anymore on this unit. It locks itself and changes the clock's time, you can't set the temp. or turn the oven on or anything like normal. Is it likely I'll be able to repair this myself? And....how?
Thanks

Sears repair dept is just horrendous these days, goes with the economy. my clock on my kenmore oven will not set and thus the oven will not work, it clearly states that is the manual. trying to get someone to come out is impossible, you have to call the sears 800 # and who know where you end up. sears repair man came out and said it was the main board, $75 charged to come and check out over-cost to fix is $464.66, they applied the $75 to this charge it's a slide in stainless steel and will cost $1500 for a new one- sears will only give a 90 day warranty on the repair...

You need to take to service center to get it repaired . Since your clock time is getting changed it indicates that your clock is faulty you need to replace the clock if you want to have the correct time.
But replacing clock is expensive .

First unplug the unit form the device for some time then on it again.and try readjusting it properly.if it does not works.it might be the probem of touch pads gone short internally and needs reparing.

Why kenmore oven code f-10 comes on when bake or broil is on


I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor.

It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If that checks good, then your control board is the problem.

Here's the oven sensor probe for your model:

If the part numbers are the same then you can use that board. The revisions are to so that the control boards can be used on models that may have other features that yours may not.

Kenmore electric range with ceramic cooktop, model # 79046593500. None of the elements or the oven will heat up. The controls work, the red indicator light goes on, but no heat.


It sounds like your Frigidaire made kenmore may have a power supply issue, the power block that is located at the rear of the oven may be at fault. part number 5303935061. However the digital clock can also cause this problem, and should be diagnosed by a technician.

My kenmoreoven cooktop works but the oven is not working properly the screen says e1-f2- how do i get help with that


Hi. This code is in reference to a possible unplugged key pad. Use this procedure to address further.

1. Check The keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board, via ribbon cable). If the cable is connected correctly, move on to the final step.

2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate the keypad and control board, as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

Kenmore gas Range -- Control Panel not working


Hi. your assessment is correct. when you have normal operations with the stove top and the control panel is blank or non operational, this will confirm either a wiring harness issue or a dead control circuit board. The wiring harness can sometimes become lose or the connectors can become corroded but, in this issue, i am sure its the ECB(electroninc control board). In this case, you will have to replace the board it self.

Please rate and god bless:)

Oven and broiler will not heat top works fine kenmore 790


It appears your ERC/CLOCK has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem


I had the same problem. Open the oven door. Press and hold the light switch. You will hear the door lock move back into the correct position. Hope this fixes your problem. This has happened to me twice and holding the light switch always works.
