A:

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.

A:

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.
