I have a kenmore elite range model#790.9802. the walls of the oven expanded after a self cleaning cycle that the rake fall. i want to take the oven cavity out and reshape it. the problem / anyone know how the oven cavity comes out? I don't want to break the oven by trying to remove it the wrong way.
It appears your door lock mechanism has failed in this instance.
First - unplug the unit for 40 minutes and re-try.
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.

under the floor of the oven, possibly can be see by removing the bottom drawer. the ignitor is hte most common aprt to go bad in any gas oven, visually it might not even look broken though and some even appear to glow(just not strong enough to open gas valve
Every F3 fault code I could find for most ranges indicates a oven temperature sensor failure. This would make sense if it only occurs when you are trying to use the oven features of your range. However, I need a model number (located somewhere along the opening of the oven door, or lower drawer) to confirm. Please post back with your model number and make sure you include the first three digits (most Kenmore models numbers will appear like this XXX followed by a period. then the remaining digits XXXXXXXX). I need the first three numbers to determine who the manufacturer is as Kenmore does not make their own appliances.
In the event that I'm right: This is a simple item that can be repaired easily by the average consumer. The oven sensor is mounted along the back wall of the oven in either the upper right or upper left corner. It is mounted with two screws on the oven wall and can be accessed for removal by removing the back panel from the console area. If you take a resistance reading across the leads of the probe, it should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. Make sure you UNPLUG the appliance BEFORE attempting any measurements or repairs, though.
I hope this may help you. Let me know if you have any further questions.
for 30 seconds - if display reappears - replace control
board. You either have a Shorted keypad, a Analog to
Digital Failure, or a Safety flip
flop. In any case all of these problems require a control board replacement. A defective control board is the only reason for an F1 code.
