Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Kenmore oven door 790. won't close all the way

The oven door won't close all the way.  Just walking by the door moves and the light blinks on and off.  Most of the time it stays on.  This is also a problem with the convection feature.  Since the door won't stay closed the convection fan goes in and out.  This happens by just walking by it.  And no, I am not fat. (hehe)

    I have the same problem! Our stove is right next to our refrigerator. When you shut the refrigerator the oven door bounces open enough to make the light flash.

    I have exactly the same problem. Walk by and the oven door moves and the light blinks on and off and sometime stays on, I have to prop up the door when baking

    Oh man.



    I have this same problem too. The door looks and feels as if it is not resting firmly against the door seal. Oven use produces a hot area at the top of the door. I'm wondering if the hinges have lost spring effectiveness but I just don't see how that can happen. If it's bad door spring hinges then I suspect the problem will happen again

    I have the same problem with the door not shutting all the way. I have read online that the problem is that Sears /Kenmore put the wrong hinges on the oven and knew they made a
    mistake but sent the oven out to customers anyway.
    There is a way it can be fixed but the hinges cost $45 each and you need 2 of them and a
    technition out to fix it unless your handy with repairs.
    I will never buy another appliance from Sears, these should be recalled or at least Sears
    should fix them for free but I have called the 800 number and since no one has died from this problem they will not FIX them for us. Hope this information helps.

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

If the part numbers are the same then you can use that board. The revisions are to so that the control boards can be used on models that may have other features that yours may not.

Kenmore 790 Oven Locking mechanism problem


I had the same problem. Open the oven door. Press and hold the light switch. You will hear the door lock move back into the correct position. Hope this fixes your problem. This has happened to me twice and holding the light switch always works.
