model 790.71002100 Oven won't come on. 790.71002100


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the oven.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 790.71002100.

Sorry to hear your bake or broil is not lighting or working as it should.   Below is a way to test your ignitors and see if that is the problem first.

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.

IF ignitors are good then you need to replace the safety valve, but most of the time it is the igntiors that go out so check them first.

If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears

Thank you for choosing I understand how important it is to be able to replace your door hinges. I have included instructions below on how to do so.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

1. Turn off your Kenmore oven and unplug the power cable.

2. Open the oven door and flip the metal hinge latches, located just above the door hinges, down. This will unlock the hinges.

4. Remove the screws on the rear of the door handle.

5. Remove the screws along the sides of the oven door's back panel cover.

6. Remove the rear panel of the oven door. This will expose the hinge assembly.
