SOURCE: kenmore gas stove makes a buzzing sound

Is the door locked?? Is it an electronic buzzer sound??

hold the CLEAR button for 3 seconds - the door will unlock.
open the door - and press CLEAR for 3 seconds.
Error code may come up.... close and re-open the door.

Are there any indications on the display?

Or is this a mechanical buzzing from underneath? in this case your gas regulator's diaphragm has failed.

If the above reset doesnt wokr (and the sound is electric) your circuit board will need replacement.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite Gas Range. #790 series.

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.

SOURCE: My Kenmore gas stove model 790, the oven will not

It appears your thermostat/probe has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My gas stove beeps and displays F3 what is wrong.it is a kenmore 970-568212


This range was made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Thus the F3 error could mean a problem with the temperature sensor, the EOC (electronic oven control) or the wiring between the two. You'll need to get to the back of the range and check the resistance at the sensor. In a ~70 degree F environment, the sensor should have a resistance of ~1100 Ohms. (The sensor is connected to the EOC by a pair of violet wires.) Make sure to rule out a problem with the wires, if the resistance tests out of specifications.

If the sensor gives the correct resistance and the wires are fine, replace the EOC. Please check that you have given the full model number, I can't find this model anywhere at Sears Parts Direct or elsewhere.

If the stove is under warranty, contact Sears for repairs. I hope this helps.

Can the cooktop surface of my Kenmore gas range model 790.72903011 be removed


Most stove tops are removable for that very purpose.... after you remove the burners and the grills above the burners.... look for an edge and inch or inch and a half below the top... get something strong like a large screwdriver and place cloth over the tip to prevent scratching the stove top. there are VERY STRONG CLIPS holding the stove top to the stove, pry upward until the clips release. then slowly remove the spark igniter (TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOUR CELL TO REMEMBER HOW PUT BACK TOGETHER)

Large pop noise tonight while using oven, then problems where buzzer would come on by itself & lock oven. Oven does not work now, nor do the buttons make the usual noise. The stove top burners work...


Sounds like you overloaded a capacitor on the clock assembly. Before you replace the clock, you should check the voltage to your stove to be sure it's a steady 110 to 125 volts. But yes, it sounds like your combo clock brain got zapped.

Not sure what to do after using self cleaning gas stove


The self cleaning is used to loosen grease only, when it has ran its cycle you must take a damp coth and wipe away the excess. As for the window it is best to use something like vinegar , just dampen a cloth and clean the window. Rember, Damp only no excess water

How to lock the auto lock of the phone?


You will have two options in your phone in order to autolock.
One is automatic and the other one is manual.If you select
the first option it will automatically get locked.Previously you
might have selected the first option.So you need to select the
second option to do it manually to avoid the autolock.

Can a kenmore gas stove be converted to propane


Yes.
If you have the owners manual it may tell you the location of the conversion parts that are probably included with the range.

Kenmore Oven not working


Remove the bottom panel from inside the stove. Turn on the stove and see if the igniter glows bright red. If not glowing, replace the igniter. In some cases, even if the igniter is glowing, the resistance may not be low enough to turn on the gas valve. In either case the igniter has probably gone bad. ($50.00 to $90.00 for igniter)
