Kenmore 47779 double oven; lower oven doesn't work after self clean

Oven worked fine for over one year then the first time I used the self clean the bottom oven stopped working. I can turn on the oven, and it seems to get power however it does not provide heat;
1) I switched the heating elements with the top oven and the elements work in the top oven.
2) I switched the thermostat with the top oven and the top oven still works.
3) I visually inspected the control panel (inside the oven) and nothing appears burnt or unplugged
I am at a loss because all of the parts seem to work in the top oven however the bottom oven does not heat up any help is appreciated

Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

It has nothing to do with the tight fit.
It has everything to do with self-cleaning on ovens.
The thermal fuse blows due to extreme temperatures.
Replace the fuse to use the oven.
Use an oven cleaner to clean the oven OR replace more fuses in the future.

I have an older model double oven by Kenmore - probably 15-18 years old. I was baking bread in foil three days ago and the oven set on bake 325 degrees. (I had been cooking a roast in it for several hours...


the oven may have locked in consequence of the self cleaning cycle.

After unplugging, allow the oven cooling down for few hours.

If the is still locked, then the high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged temp probe, door latch, or electronic control.

Parts must be tested to discover the fault.

Call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual.

I bought a Kenmore Elite double oven 911.49059200 on an auction. Th upper oven works fine. The display on the lower oven seems to work but it will not heat up. Where do I start to check?

It appears your thermostat has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or 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.

Delay or time bake

You can find the manual at, and the instruction is on page 11.
You make sure the time is set correctly.
You press Bake, and set the temperature you want to bake.
You press Cook Time and enter the amount of time you want the oven to cook.
You press Delayed Start, and enter the clock time that you want the oven to start.

Oven is not working

No, the door is able to be opened, light works. No press switch works on the pannel and F 7 shows up on the scren along with time. I even can not fix or change the time. ANd, F7 goes away after pressing clear and comes back by itself after a while in both upper and lower. This is a Kenmore wall double oven. I do not know the model name, but it is not much used in teh last 5 years. Looks like a new one.

Oven locked and I don't know how to unlock

To unlock the oven. Switch the beaker off for 5 minutes. This will reset the integrated system. Turn the unit back on and if it doesn't unlock, set the unit for self clean and let it engage. Waite about one minute and cancel the self clean cycle. This should unlock the door(s).

Double oven

ovenman, there's not a complete model number here but in the Kenmore line F7 is the code for a stuck function switch or bad keypad. Makes sense that it's telling you to start the lower oven. Try removing the ribbon cable from the board and cleaning the ends with an eraser. Reseat it and see if the code comes back. Make sure to kill the power before doing this. back.
