Question and Answers

Q:

conversion kit from propane to natural gas 79071102001 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. That is a wonderful question! I see here for your range to be changed, you must have your original natural orifics on hand. If not, you must replace the burners. Your local gas company must go out to do the conversion. I hope you get your range converted soon. Have a great day!

Q:

oven wont ignite... 79071102001 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 are problems with the oven.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 790.71102001.

Sorry for the oven not working.  Neither the bake at the bottom or the broil at the top.  

When it comes to the bake and the broil, I am told directly by the manufacturer representative that the "spark module" has nothing to do with the bake and the broil elements.   He told me to first tell everyone to test there ignitors which I have an example at the bottom to click on.   It is either the ignitors gone bad or the safety valve.   One or the other.   Your upper and lower ignitors are the exact same.

 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

A:

The theory of operation for the Norton glow bar ignitor system is shown in the image below. Since the ignitor is glowing, the gas valve is likely okay. It is likely that the ignitor is bad since the resistance of that component is not decreasing to a point where the electrical current flow to the gas valve reaches the 3.2 to 3.6 amps needed to open the gas valve. A technician will normally use a clamp-on ammeter to check the current draw through the wire between the ignitor and the safety gas valve. Most people don't have this tool and it would be impractical to buy one just to take this measurement. It is likely replacing the ignitor (part 5303935066) will fix this oven problem.

You can order the ignitor from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Ignitor kit . The kit will come with instructions for installation.

If you need more help, 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 .
