Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
Model Number 790.78573401
Manual says "runaway temperature" Says to check RTD sensor Probe.
Suggestions and is this a simple fix?
Check the temperature sensor. TURN POWER OFF!If you open the panel where the controls are located you will see a connector that has about 10 wires on it. 2 of these wires will be violet. Pull off the connector and check the resistance between the 2 violet wires. It should be around 1000 Ohms.
If not, it is bad. part# for the Kenmore Model 790 is 316217001 - cost is about $25.00
