Question about Kenmore 59940 Kitchen Hood

Open Question

I have a model 233.5994690 Kenmore Elite 36" downdraft blower behind my gas range. It has begun raising and lowering by itself and will not stop until power is disconnected. Once plugged in again it continues. Is there an adjustment I can make without calling a Sears Tech? A part I can by to try and fix?

SOURCE: F90 Err on Kenmore Elite

the F90 fault indicates that the maximum time allowed for oven door unlock was exceeded. The control attempted to unlock the door. The door lock motor or mechanism failed to unlock the door within the maximum amount of time it is allowed to be energized by the control board. It is unlikely that you will be able to reset this fault code. You can try to completely disconnect electrical power and leave it off for 5 minutes. After reconnecting power, the fault code will probably reappear since the control will still detect that the oven door is locked. The only way to clear the fault code is to disassemble the range and repair or reset the oven door lock assembly. You will need a service technician to complete this repair.

Good Luck

SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Kenmore oven control beeps and shows F1

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.

Yes, you can repair the appliance yourself and save on the cost of labor and services charges. Unfortunately, when these triple burners go bad in the manner you describe, there is no way to repair only the portion that is burned out. The burner is one complete piece and needs to be replaced as an entire assembly. The following link explains how:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3692628-surface_burner_replacement_electric


Replacements parts can be purchased from any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. I suspect your model number is actually 790.96593601 or 790.96593602. These are the only two numbers that cross to the model number you provided. If I'm not correct, please post back with your COMPLETE model number.

The part number for the triple burner is 316216702. Keep in mind, this part, alone is not cheap. The cheapest price I found was about $120 at appliancepartspros.com. However, you would spend much more if you included the added price of a service call and labor charges. Use the part number provided to search any other web sources you like to see if you can find the burner listed elsewhere for a better price. Use the part number as some websites may not list your particlar model, but will carry most parts.

If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

yes you are right..there are switches that should be detected that the unit is in its proper level ans hould stop and turn the fan on.

you may inspect the railing or where the moving part is moving to find limit switches or sliding switches or sensors..it could have been defective with oil or grease and not making contact to transfer the signal to the controller.

Looking for instructions on how to replace the main cooktop on our kenmore elite elecric range, model 790


To raise and lower the cooktop:

1. Remove all items from cooktop and set aside.

2. Grasp the sides of the cooktop and then lift from the


3. Lift the cookop high enough to allow the support rods

to snap into place. The llft-up rods will support the

cooktop in the raised position.

4. If necessary, clean underneath using hot, soapy water

and a clean cloth; then dry.

5. To lower the cooktop, grasp the front corner of each

side of the top while pushing back on each rod with

the heel of your hand. This will release the notched

support. Hold the range cooktop and gently slide the
top back down level to the range.

I have a GE downdraft vent, model #JVB94SH1SS. A couple months ago I pushed the button to put it down and it went down and up and down and up and down and up and...well you get it. I had to unplug it to...


I had the same problem. It is the switch. Hang on because that little $3 swtich is about $60 from a parts house. Sears wanted $114. If you take the switch out or disconnect the switch at the board and jumper the two leads, (12v), it should work fine. That will tell you whether it is the switch. I did it with a small screwdriver. Careful, even though it is 12v it will get yor attention. I have all GE appliances and they are all junk.
