I have a Kenmore Electric Range Oven: model: 790.9611*,9612*,9613*.
My oven was working fine then all of sudden when we started to preheat the oven on bake, the boil light inside of the oven would come on instead. So everytime now when we start to preheat the oven on bake, the boil light comes on instead. We have even unplugged the oven for couple mins. and plugged it back in. Like I said it was working fine and all of sudden it just started doing this. We haven't had any power outtages or anything. Any help would be greatly apperiacted.

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom link for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

That type of failure is normally caused by a stuck relay in the clock control board that is located in the console of the range. Replacing that component will probably fix that failure. You can order that clock control board from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. Use the full model number that is labeled on your range to access the correct parts list diagram. The model number sticker is normally on the base of the range in front of the right or left front leveling leg. Pull the bottom drawer out to access that location and find the sticker.

Here is a link for a video that shows how to replace that clock control board:

. Be sure that you

unplug the range

before accessing internal components.

These tips should help you fix this oven problem in your range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
