Kenmore oven model# 790.79383401 door not closing

I just purchased a house that came with a sears kenmore elite duel fuel range. The door does not close with the light flickering. I took the entire door/hinges and everything apart to find no adjustments. I am affraid that the heat comming from the oven is going to wreck the seal and control knobs on the range. How can I get the door to shut properly?

Do the hinges come out with the door or does the door slip off the hinges? If the hinges are on the door then there is no adjustment if not there should be an adjustment but you may have to pull the range out to properly adjust if it is a built in range. Also check the door lock.

How do I override the sabbath feature on the elite dual fuel range?

since each model and each manufacturer operating procedures are different, it is best to read the instruction direct from your owners operating instruction booklet that came with the unit. If you don't have one, you can usually order one from sears parts direct for your specific model.

It seems that the control board is faulty. You would need to get the board repaired since it is no longer available for purchase from the manufacturer. You get the board fixed from at the lowest price compare to the rest of competitors online.

I own a Kenmore elite Model 790.4660 electric range. When I attempt to use the oven there is a beeping message "F30ERR" Thank you. Mark

Thank you for question. I understand your concern with your Frigidaire range. Without knowing the model number I can't be 100 percent certain but F30 generally implies an open oven temperature sensor probe. The oven temperature sensor probe is located inside the oven cavity in the rear upper left or rear upper right hand corner. It can generally be removed and disconnected from inside the oven cavity.

Check the wiring harness connections between the control board and the oven temperature sensor probe connector. Check the resistance or the sensor at room temperature with an Ohm meter, if less than 996 ohms, replace probe. Check with meter, for shorted probe harness between control & probe connector.

. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:Sears Home Services

Kenmore Electric Range Slide in....beeping while not in use

Hard wiring is O.K. and really better because you don't have to fool with the plug and the loss of or poor connection there. You can just turn the power off at the breaker. Without knowing what the F9 error code is, you may have a problem with the board inside the control panel. To get the door open, try to push and hold door closed at the same time. This may loosen the tension on the closer and allow it to open. Pull the lever to open it. If not, try to moderately tap on the door where it latches and it may open then. Next, slide a thin screwdriver into the latch and free it up there. Once the door opens, I believe your oven will work. The oven believes it is in the self clean mode. When you get the door open, turn on the oven with the door open and it should heat. If it does not, check the wiring in the back and you may find that one of the wires has burned off the control switch for the oven. I know this sounds like a lot, but it should save you a tech call and a couple of hundred dollars. Hope this helps.
