Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Wall Oven bake feature does not work but Broil works fine. 79030473402 Kenmore Gas walloven

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Range, Model: 790.30473402. From reviewing the details on your model, you could have a bad igniter that is causing this bake burner ignition failure. Since the broiler works, you could unplug the range and switch the broiler and bake igniters to see if that bake burner works with that broil igniter in place. If it does, then this would indicate that a failed igniter was causing your ignition problem on that bake burner. Replacing that bad igniter should fix the oven in that situation

 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the range to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry the broiler is not working. If the new igniter is glowing but there is no gas flow, the most likely problem will be with the valve. First check the amps when the igniter is glowing. It must pull at least 2.5 amps for the valve to open.  If the amps do check ok, the valve will need to be replaced. If the amp draw is below 2.5 the igniter will need to be replaced again. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The gas safety valve cannot open and let gas out unless the igniter is glowing red and pulling enough current/amperage to cause the gas valve to open. I added an image below with the basic theory of operation.

You range has two igniters; a broil igniter which is located at the top of the oven cavity and bake igniter located under the floor of the oven. I suspect the bake igniter is glowing but is too weak to cause the gas valve to open properly and ignite. I recommend taking the oven bottom out and then turn the oven to bake and watch the bake igniter. If you find it glowing red and not igniting the bake burner; replace the bake igniter.

The oven bottom is removable if you see the lift tabs located at the back of the oven floor.

To remove the oven bottom:

  1. Lift up the lift tab at the back of the oven bottom.
  2. Slide the oven bottom out, and lift it up and out.

To replace the oven bottom:

  1. Slide the horizontal tabs on back of the oven bottom into the holes at the back of oven cavity.
  2. Lower the front of the oven bottom so locking flange fits into the locking channel.
  3. Replace lift tabs to hold oven bottom in place.

The bake igniter is fastened to the bake burner with one or two screws. The igniter wires are connected to a quick disconnect harness plug that can be disconnected in order to remove the bake igniter. The bake igniter is part #318177710 which can be ordered from SearsPartsDirect .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
