While my wife and I were in bed we heard a loud "bang" noise from the other side of the house. I went to investigated this immediately (occurred around midnight) I discovered localized smoke. I recognized it as electrical fire smoke. My wife and I cleared the rest house and found the smoke originated from the kitchen only. After examining various appliances, outlets, etc, we noticed the stoves front panel was not displaying the time. We pulled the stove out from the wall and saw burn marks on the wall and the back of the stove black from a spontaneous electrical fire/short. The back of the oven was very hot with some smoke still emanating from the device. We disconnected the stove from power. Device is a Kenmore Elite Range model #790.99022800

this just happened and I am filing this report while the situation is fresh in my mind. Due to the numerous accounts of this similar thing happening with Whirlpool/Kenmore stoves/ranges I thought it best not to wait to file a report.
