    Default C648430 Kenmore range won't turn off - throws error code and oven goes to max heat

    Hi Jeff,

    I was referred here by Rick from Applianceblog.com as I have a Canadian model Kenmore range and the model no. did not come up in his database.

    My parent's Kenmore range (model # C648430) would not turn off. There were two pots boiling on the range and then there was bread toasting in the oven with Bake set at only 250F. My mom went to go check on it about 15 mins later and the bread got all burned with smoke and the temperature seemed to be at the max temperature of 500 deg F. Then display showed "ERROR". My mom does not recall seeing a number beside 'ERROR". She was unable to cancel the Bake cycle, so she frantically unplugged it from the outlet. After plugging it back in, the display now only shows the time, but she did not attempt to operate it again.

    A month back and also about a year back, there was a similar situation. There were pots/pans cooking on the range and the oven was around 350 degF. Upon checking up on the food in the oven, she found that the food was completely burned and oven was blazing hot. I assume the max temperature of 500F.

    Before you mention what to check or what part needs replacing, is there a recall for this model? I mean really, not being able to turn off the oven. This oven I think is around 5 years old.
    Here in Canada as you know, Sears has closed their offices, so there is no one to get in touch with.

    Please let me know what information you can find.

    Regards,
    Gus
