Question and Answers

Q:

Oven cuts off during baking before it is finished 79071852300 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the electronic oven control/clock display goes blank, the electronic oven control/clock assembly and the clock overlay/face plate will need to be replaced. A short time fix until the electronic oven control can be replaced is to disconnect the power cord or flip the house circuit breaker off dedicated for the range wall outlet for 30 seconds or so and then reconnect the power cord or flip the  house circuit breaker back on.

Now; if the clock/oven control display is not going blank, I suspect the bake burner glow bar igniter is likely getting too weak and not pulling enough current/amperage to open the oven gas valve once the burner cycles off and then calls for heat again.  In order to access and see the bake burner glow bar igniter, the oven floor will need to be removed as well as the frame spreader. If you find the bake igniter glowing for 45 seconds or longer and the bake burner never ignites, the bake igniter will need to be replaced. To remove the oven floor, remove the two screws at the top back of the oven floor. Lift the rear of the oven floor up and slide the floor back until it clears the lip of the oven frame at the front and then lift the oven bottom out. Remove the oven door and oven racks before removing the oven bottom. On page 19 in the Use and Care Guide, it will have the instructions on how to remove and replace the oven door.

I checked the technical information for this range. The broil burner is not used in the preheat portion of the bake cycle. It is only used in the broil function. What you are describing is normal according to the technical information that I have regarding this range.

If the range is taking a long time to preheat, you may need to adjust the flame on the bake burner. I provided the procedure for checking and adjusting the bake burner flame from the installation guide in the image below. This information may help you resolve this preheat problem.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to 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 .

My Kenmore 790.71852300 was working fine. All of a sudden the gas oven stopped heating though the burners work. What would cause this?

Hello Kathie. You could have a bad igniter if just the bake burner is affected. See if that broil burner works properly. If not, you could have a problem with the clock control board in the console, a wiring failure or a bad safety gas valve. If the broil burner works, I recommend that you pull the bottom oven panel out and remove the flame spreader on top of the bake burner. Start the oven in a bake mode and see if the igniter glows on the bake burner. If the igniter glows but the burner does not ignite, then you will probably need to replace that igniter (part 5303935066), Click on the "Find Parts" link at the top of this page to order that part if necessary. I provided the theory of operation for the oven ignition system in the image below. This information may help you diagnose and repair this failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
