Customer Question

My name is ***** *****. I have a Kenmore elite stove which I think might be in saboth mode. Model c970-800133. I do not have an owners manual and can't find it on the Sears website. I have had a repair man in and he could not help me.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The ovens and burners do not work. The clock and other digital buttons work
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Appliance Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I have oven lock out and cooktop lock button on the display panel
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

No need to call ,and yes a phone call would cost you more .

if you press and hold the oven lock out for 4-5 seconds then will the oven control work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have pressed and held the clock icon doe more than three seconds. I have disengaged all power sources and re-engaged them all to no avail. I have had a technician in but he couldn't fix it only thought it was in saboth mode
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oven lock engages the doors being locked only
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are u still there?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Yes I`m here I`m just assisting more then one customer at a time.

Ok so the oven lock is not a control lock but a door lock ,go ahead and unlock the door.

and when you press any of the buttons for the oven functions nothing happens as if the control board is not even seeing you press the buttons correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The doors are unlocked. The display clock works and I have four tiny blue flashing lights on the display panel for each burner. Nothing turns on the burner or the ovens
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok and the cooktop is NOT locked out ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not that I can see....
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok when you unplugged the unit did you have it powered off for more then 5 minutes then power it back up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we unplugged it first for five min then plugged bk in...nothing. ..then we shit power off on main power box for five min but still nothing
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok I also Can not find any information on this model number in the Sears data base.

but I`m in the U.S. and I see that you are in Canada I recommend that you call a Sears servicer in your area or contact sears directly and see if they can get you a use and care booklet .

I1 will opt out in the hopes that some one else can better assist you!
