Manual needed for Range operation: Specifically timer reset

We just bought a house with an electric Kenmore range, no operating instructions for the digital clock/timer/oven controls. How do I find exactly what style of range it is, and how do I reset the timer once it has been started?

I found the work-around to be to decrement the timer to 0 as a means of canceling it, "unset it" if you will.

How do I override the sabbath feature on the elite dual fuel range?

since each model and each manufacturer operating procedures are different, it is best to read the instruction direct from your owners operating instruction booklet that came with the unit. If you don't have one, you can usually order one from sears parts direct for your specific model.

Have FFEF3015LW range/oven unplugged and moved to different house now only thing that works is the range no clock or oven control

Hello Bryan, thank you for your inquiry. Let's try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit on. If the instructions above do not solve the problem, then the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the EOC (electronic oven control) or a potential wiring failure. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you!

We have just bought a new house and the stove is about 20-25 years old A moffat the timer will not disengage to enable for us to use the stove. We have turned all the knobs and popped them out even left...

Lets try to reset the controls by turning all pwer to the range off.

Have you tried unplugging the range and then plugging it back in? If it is electric remember it is 220 volt so please use caution.

If this does not work, check your breaker box. The range should be on a breaker by itself. When you locate it, Flip it off for a few minutes and then flip it back on. Again always use caution when doing anything with electrical service. Be sure that you are standing in a dry place, etc.

If a reset of the power does not turn the timer off, please get back to me with the exact details of name/model number and type of range (gas or electric)

I don't know where you live so I don't know the regulations in your area.Was the home inspected before you purchased it? The inspector should have inspected the appliances to make sure they were working properly. If this appliance cannot be easily fixed. I would call the realtor who sold you the house and complain.

Oven door locked

ah, you lucky guy. You can try a hard reset by unplugging the range for a good 1/2 hour, then plug back in. Unfortunutely this probably won't work, as these clock/timers are notorious for only lasting a few years. You have to blow $150+ and replace the clock/timer. Note: A hair dryer will help you get the face off the old one to put onto the new one.

My oven wont work and I can not set te timer to manual

If you have a user manual, then refer to that for instructions on how to reset.
If no instructions, and you have tried every possible combination of buttons, then you will probably need to replace timer.

Self cleaning oven directions

Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
