Kenmore Electric built-in oven model 790 47789405

Worked fine. Set oven on cleaning mode for 3 hours completed without interuption and did not touch or lift bake element. Did not even clean by hand after cleaning was complete.

Next time went to use oven, nothing. No heat, no bake, no broil and no troubleshooting codes.

What to do?

Yes but it is seperate unit with it's own seperate power supply coming from the wall. My husband took a milimeter to the ovens heating element and it has 117 volts on each side. When you turn the oven on you get now codes but nothing heats at all (no heat) checked the broiler and it doen't heat either. It worked fine, then I ran the self cleaning and now it doesn't work at all. It was manufactured in jan 2008 so out of warranty but I do think it has always been a little on the to hot side.


Let me know if there is anything else I can tell you to help out. Thanks.

There are 2 thermostats located on the back of the unit, you will need to remove the unit and check with the meter to see that they are closed when checked for continuity, if you are getting error codes I need to know what is coming up..

Only see one thermostat with two wires coming out. When resistants checked 1.1 ohms. No codes.

in your previous post you stated that you are getting codes..


check 119 and 219 in the diagram below, you should have 2 according to the diagram'

Sorry I miss spoke about the codes. No codes.


Ok both check for continuity, but my husband pushed a little red botton on the back of one of the thermostats and now it is heating up???

Then you got the reset completed and working good for you,,, Have a safe and Happy 4th of July...
