My Kenmore 790.36693501 propane gas oven works but the broiler doesn't? 790.36693501


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the range/oven
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Gas Range model number 790.36693501.

I would go and check both the broiler and the bake ignitor.

How to test gas ignitors for ranges:
1.  Unplug the oven from the wall for your safety.
2.  Lower the oven door.  Sometimes best to have more room and just remove it.
3.  Remove the oven racks from inside.  Remove the lower panel when testing the bake ignitor.
4.  Remove the burner shield by taking out the screws that secure it to ignitor first.
5.  Next take out the screws that hold the ignitor.  Pull the ignitor away from the oven wall.
    Unclip the wire connector.  If the wire connector is not accessible, remove the back rear
    panel to the oven, or remove the bottom storage drawer to access the wire connector.
6.  Get a multimeter to the lowest setting so you can measure the Ohms of resistance.  Calibrate
    the meter. Refer to your meters instructions 
7.  Place one of the terminals on the ovens bake ignitor's terminal with one of the multimeters 
    probes.  Then touch the other terminal with the other probe.
8.  Check the multimeter's display  If the meter does not move, displaying a resistance of any 
    numbers on the Ohms of resistance, there is no continuity.   If no continuity then the bake 
    ignitor is bad.

Also the bake and broil ignitor are both the exact same part so you can also test it out by simply switching them.
