It appears your ERC/CLOCK has failed in this instance.

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.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Kenmore electric oven will not bake


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

well... have a volt meter?
Are the bake and broil coils the same?
If so, you can swap them to see if the broiler element glows in the bake position... if so then the element is NFG... to proove that put the bake element in the broil position and fire up the briol function... it should not heat up...
Usually the MFG. intentionally makes the elements with a different offset, so you cannot mix them up...

that's what the meter is for... unplug the element, and put the probes in the socket.
You will be reading 220 Volts, so be XTRA careful... if no 220 then the Module that controls the relay to activate the element connector is not working correctly... so you have to sorts test both ways...
Just be careful...

Oven baking element failed, broiler element worked fine. I replaced the heating element and for 1 meal it worked fine. Now neither element works and the light on the panel does not go on. The stove works...


IF you have the correct amount of 220 volts power at the terminal block.then the only thing left is the main control board has failed and needs to be replaced.

Oven won't heat past 200 degrees


Unplug the range.
Remove the oven racks.
Remove the screws on the bake element.
Carefully pull the bake element out.
Remove the wires from the element.
Use a volt meter set for ohms/continuity and touch one meter lead to one element terminal and the other lead to the other element terminal.
No reading is a bad element/
If you get a reading your oven control is bad.

My 790.94322302 Kenmore Oven & Broiler stopped working


The odds of both elements going out would be unusual.Tried to look up any other parts but the only other thing is the control module without having a wireing diagram.There should be one on the back of the stove if you can trace wires back from elements.I know that if the oven is in clean mode it over rides the oven controls.But with the electronic controlls don't think that it is possible.

Lower oven does not work. Ind. light comes on but no heat


It sounds like your heater element is burnt out. Get a volt meter.unplug the stove.take off the back,disconnet one of the wires connected to the element and test it. It should read aproximately 11 ohms if good. if a high or no readind,the element needs replacing.
