    Thank you very much. I lost power for three days during Hurricane Matthew. When the power was restored, the stove had a long beep and I got the nCAL code. Have shut off power and unplugged it for more than 10 minutes. The stove top controls and burners work. The oven, cleaning, clock controls beep when pressed. Since Whirlpool manufactures Kenmore products, can they service them as well. I am having issues with Sears and not happy with them. Was given an Oct 26 service date and they called and rescheduled to Nov 15. I find this to be unreasonable. The exact Model Number is: Kenmore Elite 790.4101. HELP!!!!!

This usually indicates an electronic oven control board failure. It could also indicate a failure of the sensor probe, one of the elements, or the wiring. Try turning off the power for a while, 10 minutes or longer. If the problem persists when power is reapplied and none of the keys respond, you need to unplug the range (or shut off the power at the circuit breaker). Then usually you need to replace the oven control board and overlay. If you post the full model number of your range, I may be able to check for the appropriate replacement part.

I hope this helps. Kenmore appliances with 790 were manufactured by Whirlpool.

I lost power for a week after a hurricane and my Lg stove reads Ncal, the burners work but the oven doesn't and every time the stove top is used the fan stays on all the time

Hello -

The Ncal error code on your LG gas range may mean there was damage to the oven control board, which is electrical. There could have been damage to the wiring.

Personal opinion: Contact an authorized LG gas range repair center and arrange for a repair technician to come and take a look at your stove.

Best wishes.

My kenmore electric range model 790 is displaying a F10 code which i believe it means it's overheating. can you help with this problem

Frigidaire stove
(F10 only) Check RTD Sensor Probe & replace if necessary.
If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to
overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe
overheating may require the entire oven to be replaced should
damage be extensive.

My kenmore oven is beeping and will not stop. the display shows F-1.

Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacment of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal checksum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).
