Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore gas range model 790.73052404 790.73052404

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that the gas range oven is not heating properly. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

Even though the bake igniter is glowing does not mean it's pulling enough current/amperage to cause the gas valve to open. The igniter must pull a minimum of 2.9 amps in order to cause the gas valve to open.

Based on your symptom and details the bake igniter is likely too weak to cause the gas valve to open. You will need to check the current draw of the bake igniter using a clamp on amp meter in order to test the bake igniter. If the bake igniter is not pulling 2.9 amps, replace the bake igniter. 

If you would feel more confident having a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

A:

If the range has been moved or the back of the range has been accessed recently, I recommend that you check that service cut-off valve on the regulator that is shown in the first image below. If that switch is off, the burners will work but the oven will not get any gas flow. If you find no problems with that switch, then you will probably need to replace that igniter. The theory of operation for that ignition system is shown in the second image. It is likely that the igniter is weak and the minimum current (3.2 amps) is not flowing through the circuit to the safety gas valve. If you happen to have a clamp-on ammeter, you can check that current draw through the circuit. Most people don't have that tool. Replacing the igniter will normally fix your problem given the details that you provided.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the igniter is 5303935066. Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, reply with additional details. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.com.
