Question about Kenmore 96413 Electric Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Preheat Indicator Bought a new stove and the preheated indicator doesn't seem to be working. Set it for 350 and it goes off at 225 saying its preheated. Store sent out repair guy and he saw the same thing but said "Thats how its supposed to work. All ovens are like that". He then left with out repairing anything. My last oven didn't work that way (had a digital readout of the current temp - not an indicator). The current oven's manual says the light will go off when "the desired temp has been reached". No one else I've talked to has heard of such a thing. Even the store's helpdesk guy had never heard of it either. What is going on? Is this the best kept secret in appliances, or is the repair guy pulling a "Its not a bug - its a feature!"

That is not how they work, you either have a oven sensor problem or a control board problem. One of the two are reading the temp wrong. You need to call them back and have it fixed.

Copiers Sharp AL-1631 AL-1641CS DESCRIPTION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS


Copiers Sharp AL-1631 AL-1641CS

DESCRIPTION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Toner save mode
Reduces toner consumption by approximately 10%.
Power save modes
The unit has two power save modes of operation: preheat mode and auto power
shut-off mode.
Preheat mode
When the unit enters the preheat mode, the power save indicator will light up
and other indicators will remain on or off as before. In this condition, the fuser in
the unit is maintained at a lower heat level, thereby saving power. To copy from
the preheat mode, make desired copier selections and press the start key
using the normal copying procedure.
Auto power shut-off mode
When the unit enters the auto power shut-off mode, the power save ( ) indicator
will light up and other indicators except the ONLINE indicator will go out. The auto
power shut-off mode saves more power than the preheat mode but requires a
longer time before starting copying. To copy from the auto power shut-off mode,
press the start key. Then make desired copier selections and press the star key using the normal copying procedure.
Auto clear
The unit returns to the initial settings a preset amount of time after the end of copy, or
scanner job. This preset amount of time (auto clear time) can be changed.
Stream feeding mode
For description of the stream feeding mode, see "Stream feeding mode".
Resolution of AUTO & MANUAL mode
You can set the copy resolution used for AUTO and MANUAL ( ) exposure
mode.

Oven does not get to temp when it says its preheated


More than likely, its your oven thermometer thats taking a half hour to read correctly. The oven is probably getting there sooner. If you had a digital thermometer, the read would come quicker. So save your money,nothing wrong with your stove.

Why the preheating light sometimes is on on cold engine and sometimes off on warm


I'm going to assume you has the diesel version of the Sprinter.


Diesel is just like a good old COX airplane engine.


The engine need to heat up by glow plugs.

You need to turn the key to on position and let the glow plug relay to energize the glow plugs for 5-X numbers of seconds first.......it all depend on the temperature.

The temp. sensor on the engine block will take all the guess work out for you.

When the dash indicator goes out then your are ready to start.

This is the correct procedure to start an diesel engine.

Please disregard this post if you has a gasoline version of the Spiniter.

Preheat taking long time


If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.
