The oven burner in that range has a glow bar igniter. Here is a link for a brief video that explains the ignition process: Gas Ignition Operation . Check to see if the igniter is glowing when you set the oven in the bake mode. If that igniter is glowing but the burner won't light then you will probably need to replace that igniter.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Range Model 790.71002102 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If that igniter is not glowing when the oven is set in the bake mode then you could have a failed igniter, a bad safety gas valve, a thermostat failure or a wiring failure in that ignition circuit. Reply with additional details if you need help diagnosing and repairing that type of failure.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wondering if it is time to repair or replace this range.

This range should have some life left in it.

It is possible that the oven control has failed.

The common issue with gas ranges of this age is that the glow bar oven igniter has failed.

If when you turn on the oven and you do get a glow of some kind it will eliminate the oven control.

If you have a meter you can check the oven control by first REMOVING POWER TO THE RANGE and the removing one of the wire contacts to the control and turn the oven control on and check for continuity across the two terminals. If you get a resistance the control is okay. If you do not get any continuity at all the control is bad.

It is fairly easy to replace if you choose to do so.

One way to do a preliminary trouble shooting is to turn the oven on and look for an orange glow in the oven cavity through the side vents.

If the glow is weak or not at all the igniter will have to be replaced to get the oven running again.

I would suggest opening the oven door and removing the racks and then removing the oven bottom.

There is two chrome colored thumb screws at the back of the oven floor that you can remove and then lift the floor from the back and unhook from under the front support to remove.

Then remove the single center nut from the flame spreader to gain access to the igniter and gas valve.

The part number for the igniter is: 5303935066. The part number for the thermostat is: 316032411.

You can purchase which ever part you need from: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this information will help you with you range oven problem.

If you need more help please reply and I will be glad to help you.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

Thank you for your request for instructions on changing the oven control. I assume you are referring to the electronic oven and clock control up in the console control panel. First disconnect all power to the range. Side the range out from the wall and remove the top back panel from the range. Then locate the back side of the electronic control and remove the four screws that retain the control into the control panel. With the new replacement control in hand move the wire harnesses from the old control to the new control one at a time. Any single wires that may be on the control replace one at a time. Once you have all the wires changed over to the new control, position the control into the control panel and fasten with the screws you previously removed. Then reattach the back panel and test operation before sliding it back into position. I hope these instructions were complete enough for you to accomplish this repair. Thank you. Sam A.

A:

Check the gas service cut-off valve on the regulator as shown in the first image below. The oven will not get a supply of gas if that valve is shut off even though the stove top burners will work.

If you find no problems with that issue, you can check to see if the igniter is glowing when the oven is set in the bake mode. The second image shows the theory of operation for the oven burner ignition system on this range. If that igniter is glowing but the burner will not ignite, it is likely that you have a bad igniter. A technician would check the amp draw through the wire between the igniter and the safety gas valve to verify this failure. If you have a clamp-on ammeter and the proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and protective goggles) then you can check this issue yourself. You should measure over 3 amps through that wire when the igniter is glowing as described in that second image below. If that igniter is bad, you can order a new one from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 5303935066. Here is a direct link for that component: Igniter . Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing internal components.

If that igniter is not glowing, you could have a problem with the temperature sensor probe, a failed clock control board in the console, a bad igniter, a wiring failure in the ignition circuit or a failed safety gas valve.

If you need more help with this failure, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .
