Most Kenmore electric ranges have digital controls, rather than a turn-knob for the oven. The controls are connected to the range control panel, which also houses the clock display. After regular usage, the oven controls or another element such as the kitchen timer or clock may malfunction. Without these controls, the range many not function, or may function incorrectly. The control panel is designed to be replaced, and replacement control panels can be purchased through Sears, the company that produces Kenmore appliances.
