A:

There is a slight chance that you can correct this problem by unplugging the range for 5 minutes to reset the control board in the console. If that does not work then you could have a bad electronic control board or a bad oven temperature sensor probe.

The oven and the broiler use the same burner in this range. Your details indicate that the broiler works but that the oven is not working in the bake mode. That type of problem is probably caused by a bad clock control board in the console. There is a chance that you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe in the oven. Here is a link for a previous answer that shows how to test that sensor: First of all, what is a RTD Sensor Probe? 2nd of all, how do you test a sensor probe for an oven with a Ohms meter. Can you give me the steps it takes to .

That sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If you test that sensor and it is okay then you will probably need to replace that clock control board. If the sensor is bad then it will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Gas Range Model 790.71153705 . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components.

These tips may help you fix that oven heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

What other grates can I use on my gas range besides the ones that come with it?

A:

I don't find information on part 6316213805. We normally recommend that only the manufacturer specified parts be used on the range. An improperly fitting grate could cause a burn hazard if a hot pot or pan becomes unstable and falls over. Using a different grate with a different size and design could be dangerous. According to your description, the size of the grates that you are considering is not significantly different than the size of the original ones that are designed for the range. If the grates fit properly and will provide the proper stability, you may be able to use them without much risk. That decision is ultimately up to you.

I don't know why the cost of the replacement grates is so high. It could be that the design and testing of this component could be expensive considering the possible liability involved in the event of a failure. The composition of the grate may contribute to the cost of production. The amount of replacement grates produced is not likely that large. This could also add to the cost. These are only possible general reasons for the high cost of replacement grates. The manufacturer will normally not provide details of the cost of replacement parts.
