Kenmore wall oven repair.

A previous question proved that the heating elements are not the problem with the oven not heating. One of the responses makes me believe that the control board is bad. Question, the parts blow up of the Kenmore 79047842401 shows only two parts, the control panel and the clock timer. The control panel seems to be only the buttons that you push to operate the oven while the clock timer has all the relays, transformers and power connections. Wouldn't the fact that the oven looks like it is working, but in fact will not heat be more likely a problem with the clock timer or the control panel? Are there readings I can take with a multimeter to decide what is the actual problem? I don't want to spend over $200.00 for a part only to find out it is not the problem and I can't send it back.

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 links for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.
