Thanks for the information about your oven, I will be glad to assist with this.
Based on the description I think your oven ignition system is where the problem is. First when you turn the oven on to heat there should be a bright glowing in the oven. This is the ignitor, and when it gets hot enough the oven valve will open and the oven lights.
Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product

If you are not seeing the bright glow then either the ignitor is bad or the main control is bad. If you have a volt ohm meter you can check the ignitor it should have continuity across the two leads when isolated. If it reads open it is bad and needs replacing. If it reads okay then you should check the oven control. With the oven set to bake there should be 120 volts ac across pin 4 and 6 on the control, if not the control is bad.
These are the most common failures, should you need additional assistance please reply with more details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .



Thanks Ron H.

A:

The most likely part to have failed is the oven ignitor. The problem you describe could be caused by the electronic oven control (clock), oven ignitor, oven safety valve, or the wiring between these parts.

You can turn the oven on and check the ignitor inside the oven to see if it glows bright red when the oven is turned on. If the ignitor is red the oven controls are sending voltage to the ignitor and oven safety valve. Either the oven safety valve or the ignitor might be bad.

Someone needs to measure the voltage between the white wire on the oven safety valve and the yellow wire on the ignitor. The voltage should read 120 volts ac.

If 120 volts ac is being supplied to the ignitor and the oven safety valve and the ignitor is red someone needs to measure the amps drawn by the ignitor. The ignitor should draw 3.4-3.6 amps in order for the oven safety valve to open.

If the ignitor is drawing 3.4-3.6 amps and the oven safety valve is not opening, the oven safety valve is bad. If the ignitor is drawing less then 3.4 amps, the ignitor is bad.

Thanks very much for your respons Jimmy. Hopefully it's something that doesn't need any additional parts and it can be fixed when the tech comes out next Wednesday. From your answer I don't think this is something I can do on my own. Thanks very much!

Q:

How do I access the interior of my Kenmore gas range model 79071313700 to retrieve a dropped item?

A:

From the description of your problem I believe you will need to remove the side panels of the range.

The 1st image below contains the instructions for removing the side panels. I also included in the 2nd image how to access the burner.

I hope this information is helpful to you in resolving this problem. If this is not the right area where you lost the orifice then submit another question with additional details for further assistance with this problem.
