new safety valve installed,why does it light only when the valve is tapped or oven rattled? 79071105892 Kenmore Gas range


The oven lighting only when tapped or rattled can be aggravating. I did some research on your model number but was unable to find an answer to your question.Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take 24-48 hours. I do hope everything works out with the oven.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, the glow bar igniter is too weak to pull enough current/amperage to open the oven safety valve. Replace the glow bar igniter and the oven gas will open and the burner will ignite.

The igniter #5303935066 for Kenmore range model 790.71105892 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct. Note: Be sure and disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing and replacing the glow bar igniter.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
