Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my Kenmore range model 790.71353703 not regulating the oven temperature?

A:

There are factors involve that must be taken in consideration when baking. I do not have enough details indicating what type of pans are being used, the type of food being baked or to I know which rack level you are placing the food on. Is it burning the top or bottom?

Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the oven & space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow the oven to preheat to the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipes recommended temperature or baking time. If you feel the oven is too hot or cool, see Adjusting Your Oven Temperature in this Use & Care Manual.

You should first get an accurate oven thermometer and place it near the center of the oven. Set the temperature for normal baking at 350 degrees. Obtain an average oven temperature after a minimum of 5 cycles of the bake burner. If the average oven temperature is too hot you can calibrate and adjust the electronic oven control up or down 35 degrees in 5 degree increments. If the temperature is too far off for calibrating then you will need to remove and disconnect the oven temperature sensor probe and check the resistance using an ohm meter. The resistance of the temperature sensor probe should have a resistance measurement of 1091 plus or minus 5.3 ohms at room temperature of 75 plus or minus 2.5 degrees. If the resistance reading is way off, replace the temperature sensor probe. It is not likely an oven control failure. The oven temperature sensor probe is part #316490000
