You can tell by the burners. Coils/flat surface = electric.
Grating = gas.

No! I haven't found a solution to this problem yet. The range still gives the F-30 error every time we attempt to program the oven. It has done this since the power failure accompanying hurricane Ike that blew through here in September.

I am still searcing for the reason for the F-30 code for free or very low charge. It is not worth $15 for the info alone. Once I find out what is causing the F-30 code, I will contact you again concerning the repair. In the meantime, the top burners still work, We are using them for now.

I would be much more inclined to use your repair services if you did not charge so much up front for mere informational troubleshooting.

SOURCE: my kenmore elite electric slide in range displayed error and F13 and the oven won't turn on

i phoned Sears about error code f13 on a gas range, and was told to unplug the range for 30 minutes. i think she meant 30 seconds - to reprogram the microchip. i unplugged it for 15 minutes or so, then reconnected, and it worked.

The F93 shows that the Maximum oven door lock time has been exceeded.
Turn off the range and turn off the AC power and wait for up to 10 mins. The door should reopen. Turn on the AC power ans see if the error persists. If it does then check the following.

1. Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.
2. Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.
3. Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.
4. Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.
5. Lock Motor continuosly runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.
6. Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.
7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.

SOURCE: Kenmore 790 elite gas range, displays F1 and oven

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Kenmore Elite Gas range, model # 790.79363401 The range works but the oven does not seem to heat up. It appears to ignite, just not get hot.


Hello,

the problem should be from the heating element of your Kenmore Elite Gas range. The heating element is either defective or may have loosed contact as a result of heat coming out of the Oven. The heat coming from the oven may have melted the wire connected to the heating element which might not make it heat up.

Disassemble the oven and check if its actually the wire connected to heating element that got melted, or its time to replace the heating element.

Good luck.

Electric or gas would be standard. If this is a stove like in the picture you provided, and is gas on top ... it is probably gas inside. You could always look to see if it has a burner or a calrod. See if there is a setting for Pilot or Igniter. Electric ovens don't need a pilot nor an igiter.

Of course, you could turn it on ... or pull it away from the wall to see what the connection is ... gas pipe or, if electric is involved, a very heavy electric cord - probably 50 amp 220 volts. If it has a small cord plugged into a standard wall outlet ... definitely gas fired. You say the top is gas so there will be a flex pipe for the gas ...

I searched Sears - they claim there is no such model.

Your agent should be able to tell by looking.

I have a Kenmore Elite Gas Range. #790 series. The electronics of the oven seem to be working, but the oven is not getting hot. The stove top (surface) is working. Do you think it is the pilot light? ...


Possibly a malfunctioning electric gas valve. The electronics may be sending the message to open that valve, however it could be stuck, clogged or, worse, the electric servo that manipulates it could be fried (no pun intended).
Do you have your exact model #? {Not serial} I can research where to troubleshoot a valve problem or an electronics issue.
