Most common repairs needed to fix a Kenmore range
Electronic Control Board Replacement
An inoperative electronic control board can lead to various failures in a range, including a lack of power or heating in the oven or surface element, or prevent the oven from turning off. This is because the board serves as the brain of the range, controlling crucial operations such as regulating oven temperatures, running cooling fans, and controlling cooking time. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components. A failing board may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the range and may emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.
Control Panel Replacement
When a range control panel is inoperative, there may be a complete lack of response or display on the control panel, rendering it unresponsive to input. This can include the inability to set cooking temperatures, use cooking modes, or activate various features such as timers or lights. In some cases, a malfunctioning control panel may display error codes or flickering lights. A failing control panel may emit unusual noises such as clicking or chattering. The failure of the control panel can disrupt communication with other components, affecting the overall operation of the range.
Power Supply Replacement
If the power supply board is dead, the range will not power up. This is because the power supply in a range connects the incoming power from the cord to the components inside. It also sends power from the control board to the oven. A defective power supply may interfere with the display on the control panel, and fail to protect the range from power surges, potentially causing damage to electronic components like the main control board. If your range is not powering up, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect it and replace the power supply board if necessary.

What to look out for with a range display not working diagnosis
Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your range problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
