Kenmore Electric Stove - Gourmet Edition

Freestanding stove with 4 coil burners and a griddle on top. It has 2 side-by-side ovens. Regular size oven on the right and a small broiler oven on the left. Large oven doesn't get hot. Heating element checks ok. Bad thermostat? Need parts source because Sears has almost nothing for this. Need approximate manufacture date. Really don't want to replace it. Great Stove!

    I have te Kenmore version 790.9462990 and I have an large oven that heats about 200 degrees hotter than the thermo is set for. I replaced the thermostat and it still gets 200 degrees hotter in the main oven.

    I really thought replacing the thermostat would do he trick but no..

    I have te Kenmore model 790.9462990 also. I lost the owners manual and can't figure out how to get the self cleaning to work.

    I too have lost the owner's manual to my Kenmore 790.9464990. It needs to be self-cleaned in the worst sort of way! Also the auto-start no longer works. The timer works but the Auto-start does not turn the over on. Problem is with the standard size oven.

Hello! I have this stove in black where something went bad inside last week (made like a crunching sound). It still runs but seems to only be getting 110 electricity. Clock and lights work and the large oven stays warm. Everything was working fine until this happened. Could be an inexpensive fix- I willing to sell it for repair or parts if you are interested. The griddle alone sells for $170.00 through Sears. Cynthia

Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.

The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

    sears.com shows the wiring diagram to still be available, prt# 3201592, $5.23. It is listed but not illustrated. You should be able to order it from sears or any frigidaire parts dealer.

I lifted the stove top of my hotpoint electric stove to clean under the burners and now I can not get it back in place


There are two metal brackets, thin ones, like little wires, one on each side, holding the stove top up. They are held in place by clicking toward you slightly when you life the stove top, push them back toward the wall slightly to release them.

Good Luck!

My kenmore electric oven works on the 4 burners on top, but the oven part does not heat at all.


There is an upper and lower burner, since it's not heating at all it's either your gas control valve or your temperature control board.

Note: If you have Sears service come out to repair your stove beware, We had them fix our stove. They told us there would be a $65 charge for them to come out but if we had the repair done it would be included in the repair price. Instead after they had our stove torn all apart they told us we would have to pay both charges or they would just leave with our stove in piece and we would still owe them the $65.

I have a kenmore electric stove. The top burner


I have the same problem, it turns out that the clock has a sensor in it to turn on the oven. If that sensor is not working, which is found in the clock, the oven does not work. I had a repair guy come out and it will cost 350.00 to repair. My stove is only six years old. It is only two months to the day off warranty. Apparently a power outage can cause the sensor to go. Hope this helps.
