I've chosen to ignore the problem. I don't need the headache, since I hardly ever use the oven...thanks.

Top burners work, but oven and broiler won't come on and control panel won't light up.


I need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from what you're describing, it sounds like the oven control board is blown out. The oven is totally separate from the top burners on a lot of units. You will have a separate burner control knob and then a panel for all the oven controls. The fact that the top burners work indicates 240v is getting into the range. Did you have a power outage recently? Usually about 3-4 weeks after the event things happen or *don't* happen with electronic appliances. This is because surge-damaged chips start to fail after a period of time if the unit wasn't blown out immediately by the power restoration. When the power company restores power, there is usually a large surge of current and it overwhelms the computer boards in microwaves, ovens, dishwashers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc. Also, I've seen bug infestations where the board is blown out due to the critters crawling across the live boards--if the clock is on, there is power on that board. I hope I helped you!

Element on light stays on, element in use light won't come on for the top burners on


One of the burner switches may have a stuck "element on" arm inside. I found mine by unplugging the switches one by one and restoring power inbetween. Once I restored power and the light went out, I knew I had the problem switch unplugged. Popped it open, freed the stuck arm. Reassembled, twisted the switch a few times to ensure smooth operation and reinstalled the switch. Problem solved.

Hello - I ran out of propane - How do I light the ignition?


Your range is electric ignition and should not require any relighting. There may be air in the line and can be purged at the cook top burners. Just turn the burner knob on until it starts clicking and let it click until the burner ignites. The oven and broiler will then light normally.

After a recent power interruption the Electronic


These electronic controls are very sensitive to power surges. I am afraid your control is now bad and must be replaced.
There are no fuses or reset buttons.

Sears Kenmore Elite Oven 790.99123405 Caught Fire!!!


The PF indicates a power failure.
The range experienced a loss of electrical power.
This code is usually cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button.
If you continue to get this code, you may need to unplug the range and check the wiring connections of the power cord on the back of the range.

My oven is not workin


I take it this is an electric stove. The display and controller only are used for the oven operation. Check to make sure you have power coming in on all three contacts. If it's electric, it uses 1/2 of the 220 for the burners and the other for the controller. I assume you have already tried un-pluging it and plugging it back in. There should be a tech sheet in the back of the oven. If there is somebody that can read some simple voltage or has a meter make sure power is getting to the controll board. If it is, your controller is probably bad. Hope this helps.

Black burner


theres no danger.its the residue from the gas.if using propane,it burns very dirty and leaves soot.if natural gas its the same but not as bad.you can simply just wipe them down with water but use an old rag because the soot is very dirty.if using an electric oven/burner the discoloration of the element is from the heat and is normal.also if the oven is gas the soot will eventually clog the holes/orfices in the burner and it will cause some issues.hopes this helps--let me know.
