Q:

Oven/broiler won't light; trips GFCI outlet 79071319701 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 is problems with the range.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Range model number  79071319701.

The gas ignitors seem they aren't getting enough of a charge to light up quickly and to stay lit.   That would be the first thing that I would test out.

How to test gas ignitors for ranges:
 
1.  Unplug the oven from the wall for your safety.
 
2.  Lower the oven door.  Sometimes best to have more room and just remove it.
 
3.  Remove the oven racks from inside.  Remove the lower panel when testing the bake ignitor.
 
4.  Remove the burner shield by taking out the screws that secure it to ignitor first.
 
5.  Next take out the screws that hold the ignitor.  Pull the ignitor away from the oven wall.
    Unclip the wire connector.  If the wire connector is not accessible, remove the back rear
    panel to the oven, or remove the bottom storage drawer to access the wire connector.
 
6.  Get a multimeter to the lowest setting so you can measure the Ohms of resistance.  Calibrate
    the meter. Refer to your meters instructions 
 
7.  Place one of the terminals on the ovens bake ignitor's terminal with one of the multimeters 
    probes.  Then touch the other terminal with the other probe.
 
8.  Check the multimeter's display  If the meter does not move, displaying a resistance of any 
    numbers on the Ohms of resistance, there is no continuity.   If no continuity then the bake 
    ignitor is bad.

There is also a SPARK MODULE that runs the ignitors to give charge that may be the problem.

All parts can be checked with a volt meter.   If you know how to use the meter great.   If you don't then it is best to call a qualified technician and getting the job done right.

Q:

oven not igniting 79071319701 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 range.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 790.71319701.

 Sounds like the ignitor doesn't get enough juice/power to keep it going.   Sounds like you need a new ignitor.   Here is the way to check though.

 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

Q:

790.71319701 - flame is low

A:

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the burner. Now, if this is all the burner flames the problem could be low gas pressure or it could be the regulator. A technician would need to make this type of check. If this is just one of the burners, it could be the valve or the orifice or burner ports may be clogged. Refer to page 12 in the owner's manual to clean the burners. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I 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.
