Q:

how to light the pilot light for my kenmore oven 79071054402 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the range not lighting.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 790.71054402.
 
Im looking at your model number.   I see you are having trouble getting it to light.   There is no pilot light on these newer model ranges.   What gives it the gas to light up is the ignitor and have a picture of it below.  It is key number 19 and it is the correct one for this model.
 
When you turn the knob, do you hear the click or see it light up at all.   If  you dont then you need to replace the ignitor so the oven can bake.
 
 
 How to check an ignitor:


How to check if ignitor is good:

1.  Lower the door all the way down.   May have to remove the hinges so be careful.  The ignitor will be on the back bottom side of the oven.  Usually a cylindar/oblong piece and has a metal covering.  2 wires on the back side with ceramic wire nuts.

2.   Turn the gas on and wait for the ignitor to start glowing.  If it takes more than 2 minutes to do then needs to be replaced.

3.  If it is coming on then look and see if it is a dull orange/reddish flame.  The probablility is that  there is no longer enough current flowing through.  Then ignitor needs to be replaced.

4.  The ohms should read anywhere from 20 to 40 ohms 
 
 If you have further questions please let me know.
