Does anyone know of a site where you can download Kenmore user manuals? I have a Kenmore electric, free-standing, self-cleaning range and have misplaced the manual. Thanks!

** Does anyone know of a site where you can download Kenmore user manuals? **

Most Kenmore major appliance manuals can NOT be downloaded but whether yours may be the exception would depend on the *exact* model number of the appliance in question.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

My manual is for a Model # 790 46803 992 built in 2000. I could copy and mail to you if that would help. I am trying to figure out how to fix F1 Fault code on mine

** Model # 790 46803 992 ... I am trying to figure out how to fix F1 Fault code **

An F1 fault code on your model most often indicates a problem in the electronic control but can sometimes be caused by a malfunctioning oven temperature sensor (see the following links).

- Oven Sensor

Unfortunately, testing the sensor would have to be done *at the time of failure* to determine whether it might be the cause or not. If the failure only occurred when the stove was hot, testing it might be difficult. Sometimes it is easier to just replace the sensor first to see if the F1 error code ceases. If not, than it would often indicate the control was the problem.

JFYI. The most common oven sensors should read about 1100 ohms when at room temperature but often only fail when in actual working conditions.

Thanks Dan O. I'll Ohm out the thermocouple, but I suspect it's the timer since it crapped out when we were away, and probably lightning took it out. I guess I just remove the knobs and control panel to get to it. Cost at $257 is pretty high. Well designed electronics should rarely fail.

** Well designed electronics should rarely fail. **

Well I guess the appliance industry hasn't heard that because the electronic on their products fail hand over fist (not quite but it is *FAR* from uncommon). But then again, in appliances they are usually subjected to heat, humidity and/or vibration that they wouldn't be in other applications (excluding automobiles which sell for thousands of dollars more so more can be spent on those components).

Let us know how you make out.
