Question about Kenmore 92420 / 92421 / 92422 / 92424 / 92429 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Opening the oven door causes the oven to reset and PF on the display

We have a Kenmore elilte electric stove that has been repeatedly moved over the past few years. The house we're in now had a 3 prong outlet and the this stove has 4. I was told it was OK to simply wire the 4 prong outlet leaving the bottom prong open just the ground and the left/right wired.
The stove powers up but when the stove top is used it makes a loud click when the burner cycles and after setting the clock, opening the oven door causes the unit to reset itself and the display shows PF with a blinking 12:00
Do you think the problem is that 3rd leg on the power cord or has something been knocked loose with all the moving or ?
Thanks

Remove the ground strap from the middle terminal block in the dryer. Attach the white wire to this terminal. Take the green wire and attach it to the frame of the dryer. Attach the red wire to the right hand terminal, and the black wire to the left side terminal.

Click here for more info on the electrical connections from a 3 to prong.
I would suggest to check with the superintendent of the building first before hooking the appliance. That way you will know if the wiring will be able to handle the amount of power require to operate the appliance.

Just moved, the dryer has a 4 prong plug and house has 3. Should it replace plug to dryer to 3 prong or house plug?


Buy a 3 wire cord and install it on the dryer. Hang onto the 4 wire one in case you move again.

Dryer is 2 years old. Worked fine until we moved to a new house and could not hook it up. 1 year later I finally had the electric problem fixed and hooked the dryer up No Heat. Dryer turns on but NO Heat.


is the outlet 3 or 4 prongs?. voltage check the outlet for propper voltage. check connection at dryer power cord. 2 of the wires power the motor circuitry(120vac) the other 2 the heating element. you may have a loose connection in outlet,switch wires or bad-half trip breaker. if not,,,, there's a dryer problem, call us again with update please. good luck to you.

Two out of three of my timers have jammed up. the timer does not turn at a certain point without forcing it. they are like 2 weeks old. can I fix this or should i just change brand


I test timers.
4-6% arrive defective >>> and most last less than a year. But some last a long time.

Plug-in timers are made cheaper today.
Inside the timer is small clock motor that rotates plastic gears that rotate time dial.
Plastic arm rides along the time dial.
When segments or pins are up-or-out, plastic arm moves back-n-forth and opens and closes electrical contacts.

If motor is not able to turn the dial, then motor is overheating and is in downward spiral.
They don't make replacement motors for inexpensive plug-in timers.
So you need a new timer.

Amazon has interesting page that shows wide selection:
http://picclick.com/Amazon/Home-Improvement/Electrical/Timers/

Amazon sells 2-pack of plug-in timers with 2 prong outlet

3-prong outlet

Changing a 3 prong plug into a regular outlet plug.


Your plug is for 220v and a regular wall outlet is 110volts. It simply will not work. You will burn out your dryer, and place yourself at risk of electrocution.

3 prong outlet/4 prong plug


If you bought an electric range , it is a 220 volt range with a BIG plug and can only be used in a 220 volt outlet.
If you can plug a small appliance into that outlet then the outlet is only 110 volts and you need an electrician to run a new 220 line!!!!!!
Was the range you are replacing a gas range??? If so that runs on 110 volts like you TV and toaster and every other small appliance in your house!
If you are not sure what you are doing get a professional to help you!
Every year in the United States thousands of people die buy trying to fix the electrical in their home alone!
BEWARE 220 Volts will shock you! BUT USUALLY will kill you if you touch it!
