Question about Kenmore 79383 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

While baking muffins, taking the 2nd batch out of the oven I noticed a smell like an electrical burning smell. Just then the oven started beeping and flashing a F08 and F07 code. I tried to turn the oven off but the cancel button would not work. I shut it off at the breaker. After about an hour I restarted the oven and continued with my muffins. 6 minutes into this batch the oven started beeping again and went to F02 code. The muffins that should take 18 minutes to bake were done, almost over done and there is smoke coming from the oven...

Looks like you have a runaway temperature problem.
I will guess that the oven is electric and the top burners are gas, as it is with most dual fuels.
Like like an oven sensor or board problem. The quickest way to find out what the error codes mean is to Google it. Then re-post your question for a more specific answer.
The error codes should also be in your customer user manual.

    F8. Shorted meat probe alarm; probe jack or harness to probe jack or, probe sensing temperature above 250F. All this stuff means

    All this stuff means in practice is that the board is sensing one or more of your key pads is stusk./shorted.Usually the board (clock) and the face membrane has to be replaced to correct the problem. Depending on how comlex yours tove is, the parts may cost between $150.00 and $300.0. .

SOURCE: f3 code kenmore model# 911-4552090

Hi pickerrauto7,
The f-3 code code indicates a bad or open temperature sensor in the oven. It is the little metal rod in the top of the oven about the size of a pencil.
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
You will have to remove the back panel of the range to correct the problem. The temp probe is held into place with two 1/4 inch screws. If the connections are good then the probe is bad. Good luck to you on your repair. I am sure this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.

SOURCE: Oven will not heat

Since bake and broil use different elements, and it is unlikely both went out at once, and then I would suspect the switch instead of the elements.

Whirlpool gold oven


One must preheat the oven to the desired baking temperature. If the oven is turned on and the food immediately put in to bake, it will take longer to bake the first batch than the second and subsequent batches, because the oven need a few minutes to heat up.

In other words, the oven isn't at 350 degrees the instant you turn it on. It takes about 15 minutes for the oven to reach 350 degrees. I hope this helps.

EW30EW65SS Stainless Steel smells like burning electrical


Hello purrpplee - If the smell is coming out of the oven vent, more than likely it is something inside the oven that is creating the odor. Also, keep in mind that new cooking products can create a burning electrical odor when the bake and broil cycles are used as any residual coating or film on the oven liner and elements burns off. However, if odor increases consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

OVEN WILL NOT BAKE , IT WILL BROIL


I have the same problem, I took off the back panel and noticed that the EOC (electronic oven control) board is blackened and most likley need to be replaced. My wife was cooking a pizza and she smelled a burning plastic smell, she looked in the oven and saw the pizza on fire and smoke bellowing from the control panel area. So i unplugged the oven and saw the circuit board did start on fire and fortunatly it went out before serious damage. No matter what you set the oven on the display shows it as being correct, but only the top element comes on and it is on HIGH!!!! DO NOT BUY FRIDGIDAIRE!!!!

Oven comes on for 5 min then shuts down everything even the keyboard


Same problem here on JKP15WOW1WW. The cycle starts like this:
1) Open circuit Breaker
2) Open oven panel and push ribbon connector to ERC. Replace planel.
3) Close circuit breaker
4) Run to oven, notice clock flashing some time but not 12:00 and start Bake. Bake button beeps and starts bake coil.
5) Within 5 minutes hear a beep and all buttons on panel are unresponsive. Bake continues. if oven light is on it continues to glow. Only button that responds with a beep (and not to clear bake or oven light) is Clear botton.
Rinse..wash..lather...repeat...

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.
