If you are talking about an electronic digital display type control that is dim, most likely the only way to fix it is to replace it. Most electronic control units are not repairable in that sense.

Kenmore Electric Oven won't bake after using self-clean!


The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort. Now comes the bad news, you fall under the catagory of damaged electronics. The control has been damaged and I wouldn't doubt if the sensor as well.The part number for the control is WB50T10056 and cost about 108.20. The sensor part number is going to be WB21X5301 and cost about 94.00 On the second part I would call my local parts distributor and as if there is a sub part for it and self yourself about 50 bucks or so. Sorry, and good luck.

My Kenmore Electric Range model 790.9661 seems to have a control board problem. Before replacing the $200 part, just wanted to make sure it was the problem. The clock works, but the oven temperature side...


From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

Good Luck from a bored repair man!

My Kenmore oven will only go up to 375 degrees. If I set a higher temperature, the preheat indicator won't go off, but it clicks, just doesn't make it to the higher temperature. Please help.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a defective temp probe or heat control knob

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.

We have a GE JKP15 oven that will not heat to temperature (350F) when first turned on. The oven will beep (temp confirmation) and the display will indicate 350F but the oven temp will only be at 220F...


Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

On my gas kenmore oven, the oven first wouldn't get up to temperature, and now 3 months later it just doesn't heat at all. There is no gas smell or indication that there is a pilot light. My gas broiler...


Replace the glowbar ignitor in the oven. Turn off the gas supply. Remove the oven racks. Remove the base pan in the oven to access the ignitor. Most plug in. Some have wire nuts.
Your local appliance parts store will need the model number or the ignitor for a correct replacement.

Electric Diagram for Kenmore Model 790


Has the oven run out of control or gotten too hot? The 790 series is made by Frigidaire and those fault codes are F0 to F8. F2 indicates the temperature sensor is reading too hot. Now with the double oven models, some manufactures add an extra digit to the fault codes to indicate which oven created the fault.

Your most likely fix is to replace the temperature sensor. The most probable locations for the wiring diagram is taped inside the bottom drawer, on the back or under side of the oven, or behind one of the panels on the back of the oven. This might tell you the room temperature resistance for the temperature sensor so you can test it with an ohmmeter and be sure that it is faulty. Try Appliance Parts Pros for replacement sensors.

Beeping F 10


Hello
Welcome to fixya.com

You r answer to the F10 code is:

The F10 error code indicates a runaway oven temperature. This would indicate that the oven temperature sensor or the electronic control has failed. According to the service manual you need to unplug the range & after restoring power the oven continues to overheat you will need to replace the electronic oven control.
This a job for a hands on tech!

Kenmore oven error code f10


The F10 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses a runaway temperature condition in the oven through the oven sensor circuit.
This can be caused by a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or a failed electronic control board.
Oven temperature is detected by the control board as it monitors the resistance through the oven temperature sensor circuit.
You could have a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring harness failure, an open thermal switch or a failed electronic oven control board that would cause this problem.
The first component to check would normally be the oven temperature sensor probe.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can shut off the breaker for the range and remove the screws that mount this sensor to the back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the wire harness into the oven cavity until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug.
You should have enough slack to pull it this far into the oven.
Disconnect the sensor but do not let the wire harness retract back through the back wall of the oven or it will be hard to reconnect.
Measure the resistance of the oven temperature sensor with your volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, the resistance should measure around 1100 ohms.
The resistance chart is shown in the image below.

If the resistance is above 2200 ohms at room temperature, then the sensor probe is causing the F10 error code and will need to be replaced.

You can order a new sensor probe from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is 316217002.

If the resistance is normal, then one of the other causes mentioned above is producing your F10 code.
You would need to access the electronic oven control board (Timer) in the console and check the resistance at the sensor circuit connection to the control board as the next step in troubleshooting this problem.
