Why won't the oven work on my range after making a loud popping noise?

I have a Kenmore range model 790.9568. The oven was in preheat. I made a loud pop. The oven went out. The circuit breaker for the range tripped. After resetting the breaker, the range came back on but not the electronic display or the oven. This unit is only 4 years old.

According to your symptoms, it sounds like the EOC (Electronic Oven Control board) is not responding and will need to be replaced.

The basic procedure for replacing this EOC is to unplug the range and remove the back panel of the console. Remove the wiring connections to the EOC and replace it.

Without a full model number for your range, I am able to give you more specific advice on this repair. There are about 24 different Kenmore models that begin with the numbers 790.9568 . . .

You can visit the Sears PartsDirect websit

to order a new EOC. It will likely be listed as a Clock/Timer on the parts list diagram. It will look like Key 20 in the image below.

It is unusual for this part to go out after only 4 years. The average normal life of this type of control is about 15 to 20 years.
