How can I check a recall on Kenmore electric range model 790.xxxx?

I have a Kenmore range model 790.96011405. The serial number is VF61914672. How can I check on a Kenmore range recall. My stove has had 2 similar issues. The left front burner seems to have no heat control sensor. It seriously burned one pan and the house filled up with smoke on medium heat. It warped a second heavy duty pan also on medium heat. It took 3 tries to turn off the stove. It was purchased in May of 2006. It is no longer under warranty.

I have a range too that has the same problems you are having, except the last time we tried to use it, it would not shut off. We had to switch it on and off about 30 or more time before it would turn off. That night we had something sitting on the range and it melted, so that means that it came back one sometime during the night. My husband unplugged it and moved it into the garage. I started looking for a new range and the first thing Sears tried to sell me is a Kenmore. There are several Kenmore ranges with this problem that are not in the recall. I plan to contact the consumer protection agency, and see if they want to come and get my range to test it. I could not sleep at night if I knew it should be recalled because it could burn a house down, but I did nothing.
